Well, it is that time
I thought this day would never come. I have been thinking about this for about a year... I think it is time I retire from game hacking and utility programming. It is a hard decision to come to but it is one that I have to make. I have various reasons for this decision but the primary ones tip the scales in that direction. Mostly I've lost the desire to do these things and with where my life is now I just don't have all of the time I feel is needed to dedicate to this. Whether it be working too much, doing the upkeep on our house, and with my wife and I talking about kids I just don't have the time any longer.

I feel very proud of what I have accomplished and contributed to the community so I will retire with a sense of pride. I helped pioneer Final Fantasy 4 and 6 game modification starting in 2000. I also helped make SPC modification for the Square games more mainstream with the launch of my SPC Editor and individual game documents starting in 2006/2007. But honestly the thing that makes me the most proud is the countless people that I have both introduced and mentored in this field. And some of those guys have paid it forward and mentored newcomers and even those have now started being mentors. My only regret is not finishing about a half dozen projects that I spent so much time on. But, they are being archived so if I ever feel peckish I can still come back to them.

I will check in from time to time on where the game/ROM "hacking" community is at and what sorts of things are going on but my active and contribution days are over. I still will attempt to fix any bugs if I can on any project already publicly released but it may take longer than usual. My forum on jce3000gt.com will remain open and I will be active on it everyday so please feel free to still post anything you like on this or other subjects. I will also periodically check my private messages and emails if anyone needs to get a hold of me for whatever reason. Thank you to everybody that has helped, contributed, and assisted with any of my projects. It has been a great ride!
