I’ve already mentioned this to a bunch of people, but I keep getting asked this in the comments and stuff. The TL is pretty much done, but has not been released because:
- Our hacker went MIA a few years ago
- Two of our TLCs went MIA over the course of the years
- Finally, and a bit more recently (still a little more than a year ago), “things” happened that I am not allowed to talk about due to legal reasons. As much as I would like to release the patch for you all, I would probably be hit with a DMCA within a day and would be burning a lot of bridges in the industry if I do. So right now, not all hope is lost as of yet, but I have just been waiting on news and it’s been taking forever (years). Maybe the matter has already been forgotten about, but I literally cannot do anything until I hear back. I’m sorry, please understand. When you do this kind of thing for a living, you can’t just do whatever you want anymore, and it’s not as black-and-white as you think – your actions will have consequences. Bottom line, shit happens. The reason I have not declared this project dead is because there is still a glimmer of hope at the bottom of the well somewhere, and I’m not giving up the project until that glimmer has all but died out. I’m sure some of you might prefer me just calling the project off so it doesn’t feel like you’re waiting for nothing, and I would’ve done that ages ago if I wasn’t still very much attached to this project. Just know that this is as upsetting for me as it probably is for you guys. This whole event has killed my motivation and passion for translating and is affecting my job, but I’m still trying to push my way through to earn a living nevertheless.
So really, I’m sorry. It really sucks and it’s a really shitty situation, and I’ve probably said too much already. You can hate me if you want but my answer will not change. Just know that I do not consider this project dead – let’s just say it’s on an indefinite hiatus until further notice.
EDIT: Thank you for all the supportive comments… I really don’t feel like I deserve it but thank you for understanding. I’m sorry if I let some of you down
