I'm sorry if me knowing things that you don't upsets your apparent inferiority complex, but all I did was give him some information. I honestly don't know how you're reading any kind of "tone" into that post, especially since you admit later that "tone" can't be read on the internet As project director, Sonic Megamix is "my" game, and as many people as have ever been involved, Taxman is not one of them, which is a fact that is very clear because it's easy to find out who has ever had anything to do with Megamix (you might also refer to the wiki article, linked from the megamix article itself, and the in-game credits from the more-complete builds). As the only person who has ever been involved with it in any way, HCGE is my engine. It stands to reason that I might possibly want to use HCGE if I were ever to take Megamix to another platform, which I even very clearly and explicitly said that I would do in another part of the same post that he was responding to I've worked with Taxman, he is my friend, and I've worked with his Retro Engine, but I'm not his lackey, and I'm certainly not his inferior, as even he has to defer to my knowledge and experience every now and then, which is how I even became a part of those projects. Yet, due to circumstances beyond his control, I was not allowed on the project for Sonic CD, nor was I allowed the same level of crediting (the splash screen, the only thing a majority of people will ever see in the way of credits that aren't the reproduced originals) for Sonic 1 and 2 as he was, even though our level of involvement was equal. Unlike a portion of the Retro member base and a few random other individuals scattered across the internet, the larger part of the world has no idea that I was involved in any way whatsoever, and even goes so far as to credit Taxman for specific things that I did myself. Now that all this talk of Megamix has begun again, I've even had people ask "Is Taxman going to help Stealth with Sonic Megamix"? I try to make it a point not to be boastful, and usually when I say anything even remotely like it, I'm only attempting to present a fact that happens to sound good to people, or I'm responding to something like this. However, if people are actively being credit, I want to receive my share, and you should be able to understand that it is upsetting when it is given to someone else. So, forgive me if I'm just a little annoyed by having myself and my work considered less than second-rate Besides, if I were trying to be 100% serious, I don't think a slanty-faced emoticon is appropriate You're the only person who seems to think I was biting his head off or something for it. In turn, you bite my head off for taking time out to tell him that despite how I feel about the one thing he said, I do appreciate his support? What even is that? Name-calling, accusations, and swearing... who is it that's being condescending, pretentious, completely unnecessary, and incredibly jerky?
