REI has never said "no contribution, no playing the game"
Hes restructuring how the game development is handled.
And has always had a version up for download. Just there will be constant changes for a while. So no reason to reupload the 3gb demo everytime a stage gets updated or guiles sonic boom speed goes from 5 to 4.8
the version of the game thats been sitting there for literally months. Has been fully playable online and off. And small changes like what i mentioned above. Makes online play impossible between versions.
Your not missing out on anything. In my opinion play testing is not fun. Connections are bad. And i have more fun goofing around with pexxar(sup Dannyo!) And koopa. (Rei doesnt joke much. Cuz hes busy ironing out bugs) than i do getting my ass handed to me because we are testing a character i dont use
As far as not having a mugen skill. Thats an excuse. I didnt have one. So i told rei i would learn to do something useful. And i have been barely useful at all. So my advice to you. Pick something and learn it. Character color pallettes. . Hell anything. I took up spriting. Not because i wanted to. But because theres no one that does sprites. And since there has been nothing but idea men offerring ridiculous suggestions that would require complete overhauls in core gameplay if they are even possible at all. . Rather than shut out the forum completely rei chose too simplify and move talk of development to discord.
Nothing has gone Private. He has always had a playable version up for people to enjoy and play against each other. As he said. He just needed the one drive space to set up a more streamlined testing environment.
Sorry to speak for you Rei. Is that about right? Or did i miss anything.
Oh yeah one last thing.
Rei had been working on this game for over a year before i came along to push my help on him.im sure he will still be working on it when or if i move on. Those of us that are forcing him to let us help him. Arent doing it because we want a credit. Or to change the idea of HIS game. But because despite him telling us repeatedly he wont quit and hes used to working alone. We dont believe he should. And we dont want to risk another great full project to disappear before its time.
One last very important thing
