As many of you know, this game has been discontinued for many months (possibily year(s)). I can no longer work on it as I'm too busy with university & a new project, thus I may let someone else update this game.
I doubt I'll find a person who's capable to achieve this task, as this game's source has been leaked many times and there's only one RIP alive now. Furthermore, I never saw anything too innovative being implemented to those rips, just new characters using the existing codes, and some other variations.
I won't give the source to someone who doesn't have any previous experience, in fact, I may want to give it to someone who's already had a successful game. You need to put effort to develop this game, and it isn't as easy as developing other BYOND Games (you must spend days to learn how & when you have to use certain variables, how some procs work, the rounds system, etc etc). The game's source could be simplified, that's a fact, but as I said, I don't have time for that. I got better at programming as I worked on this game (I learnt a lot in 3 years), but due to various reasons I couldn't continuously update the whole source to optimize it (I did that a couple of times, but still).
I don't really mind if your "successful game" is a RIP. In fact, the first game I worked on was a NNG Rip (Naruto: The Next Eternity, there's a vid on YouTube). So, if you have cool ideas (& you're able to implement them), please, let me know on this topic (or via a msg on BYOND).
I would also like to ask the community (if there's any left xD), so that they can decide whether the game's continued by someone else or not. I could've released the host files, but to be honest nobody really used them in the past, so I considered that pointless.
There are no "special conditions". I don't expect to be Admin on the game if it's continued by someone, and I wouldn't mind to be honest (I rarely play BYOND Games now). But I would appreciate if you kept the name of the game, credits, etc... I believe a mature person should be able to recognize someone else's work, right? Dunno, BYOND's Community has surprised me a lot these years, so someone may lie to me, rename the game, move it to a different HUB with 0 fans, and add awful characters while selling the content I coded in the past for $$$.
That's it. If there's any nostalgic player who wants to sacrifice time to revive this game and bring it's potential back, don't hesitate to post here. I may not remember your name (as I quit N:EM a lot of times), and I may not know that you've played the game for maany hours/days/weeks, but if you prove to be a good developer, and you prove to love this game enough to spend your precious time on it as you add new content, I may recognize you as the new (and only) owner.
