God guys,someone tries to add something I personally think could be really good for the scene and everyone starts biting the poor guys head off,bloody filthy,no wonder its been so friggin turbulent throughout time,and so many peeps have gone awol it's just not good for morale.I can't understand why people wouldnt want their creations dispersed amongst the public,so they can enjoy playing them just as much as the layout designers enjoyed creating them,lets face it,it's always been the same,secrecy and cliquey,marred with greed and backstabbing as far back as i can remember,take the small ammount of peeps who had the tools to create layouts and noone else was allowed them,only due to a hacked 9.4 it would possibly still be the same.all i can say is thank god the actual fruit machine companies have not got the same attitudes as I can see here.I thought this scene wasnt about money but it seems to me thats exactly what its become,im bloody damn well saddened by it.
If you look carefully enough on the net you can find many many layouts for a small fee,don't get me wrong i dont agree with it,but i feel by coveting layouts like gold dust is just damaging to the scene and thats my opinion and im sticking to it
All i can say is thankyou first off to the fruit machine companies for giving me so much enjoyment over the years,without them none of us would be here now,FACT!,Do you see them charging us for the use of their copyrighted roms, graphics and technology of which some designer created in the first place NO!!!,reguardless of how you get about the legalities,I understand websites like this need income especially if the owners are not exactly rolling in it.
Im sorry but the greed is really shining through instead of the love of the scene which should really be foremost!!!
Good on you fruitnutter for trying to do something positive for the scene I appreciated it mate and I'm not out to make a fast buck either,you can all take that however you like.
Some things never change do they?
I also note there are no real tutorials to help new users to start creating and enjoying just as you do Why?
think about it?
