A quote you were sent by e-mail from RAD.

"As far as I know from my dealings with him on this and on other issues, Jeff is an honorable person. I think you are wasting your time."

I'm not going to release your name to the forum but I know who you are.
Care to tell the members here just how much you donated before you attempted to stab me in the back?
How many hours or days or months have you laid your neck on the line as I have?
How much do you REALLY know about how to do things to get new Units in SH5?
Have you studied the files as long and as hard as I have?
No. Your just trying to make trouble where none exists!
You are the perfect example of why I keep things under wraps.
The contract for the exporter puts ME and only ME under legal obligations that could result in loosing my home.
Are you willing to step up to that kind of obligation for people you've never met and probably never will?
I also, by contract, CAN NOT MAKE A SINGLE CENT! That means I can not charge for anything!
To charge was never in my sights to start with so means nothing to me.

I give and give to the good people here in so may ways. Most times you never even know it was me behind the scenes.
My hand has been and still is in so many great mods here you'd never play a Game of SH anything if you wanted to avoid my influence.
Unless you played stock SH3. Guess what? Stock SH4 and SH5 have my influences in them!

I do all that because I like it. Not to get praise or badges or special treatment. I do it because I enjoy doing it when I can.
People like you give me great pause to chuck it and tell you good luck and return all the money to Neal to pass along to donors.
Then there would be NO Exporter ever!

One of the KEY things to get as good a deal as We have now was to build trust. I've spent years trying to do that.
(My exchanges go back to 2011 with RAD.)
No one else did anything like that. Just me. I was shown that payed when I saw your statement of "suspicions of fraud and deception".

Would you like to see what my take home pay was for 1 week and then explain why I would abscond with under $5000?
I make more then that in a month most months!

Now I welcome responces from you Guys.
Should I just say the heck with it and walk away?
Or do We get down to business?
I am truely stunned by that Jeff. I really do not know what to say...

You have put yourself out-there, giving up your free-time to give advice and to help / Aid / show / teach other people who ask for help, or that you may see needs help in the various threads.

Plus the fact, the project you were lining up, has no financial incentives for you, all the "financial value" was going straight to RAD games, with a possibly of putting yourself at a great risk if things went south...

i truely do not understand some people, and their thought process.
They are not worth the attention.

What we all should be focusing on, is the arrival of the Exporter Tool, and the hugh possibilites that it opens up for SH5.

I agree with s7rikeback: pay people like that no heed. We're really on the cusp of something great! We can do this, thanks to your hard work. Let's make this happen!

I also encourage Jeff-Groves to "stay the course", and attempt to ignore the back-stabbings, which unfortunately seems to infect any place that humans congregate. Jealousy has many faces, as does ignorance (which feeds jealousy), and a failure to even attempt to read "history" (even just this thread, which is an easy read) just shows how someone can submit themselves to a whit, whim or "fancy", similar to speaking before thinking... I have "known" Jeff-Groves for a good while now, and he is one of the most helpful folks on this site. He is also one of the hardest-working individuals that I know of. He puts in long hours at his "regular" job, yet has never failed to respond to a PM I've sent him, many of which are examples of verbosity in the extreme, similar to what this is becoming, so I'll quit now...

Ditto. Jeff is a stand-up guy who's been a steadying and promotional force in all of the Silent Hunter series. His contributions to our SH4 mod, Fall of the Rising Sun Ultimate, is incalculable. Without his influence we would have released the final version a year ago and been crippled with bugs introduced over the past 10 years. Jeff didn't write the mod, he taught us how to write the mod, and for that, he guided FOTRSU to a new destination, toward which we still head today.

The Internet will always have little people with big mouths and bad intentions. We can't let their loudness blind us to the fact that they're impotent, few and unimportant. You have to have a thick skin to survive here, and creative people often do not have a thick skin. We need to support our creative people. We need to support Jeff.

If anyone cares? I only want one badge in my sig.
Best of 2011
That was NOT for any mod work and I did ask SUBSIM should get the award.

That changed my life and outlook on a whole lot of things.
I am happy to say my friend down under is still around and doing great!

As most of my friends understand how I am? I'm going silent for a bit.
Most should by now have my e-mail contact.
Heck. I'm not scared! For anyone that wants to talk to me?

privateer@gmx.us

Want to call me thief? Go for it.
Want help? Give me a shout.
Want to just tell me about your problems in Game? I don't play the Games much.

You want to help get this all setup and running? Ya. I want to hear from you.

Have to agree Jeff is a stand up guy. He has always been there to help anyone out, me included many times. Was glad he was still around when I came back and long may it continue. He won't let you down re SH5 that I do know.

I agree BBW, I have been here long enough to know that Jeff is a stand up guy that I trust 100%. I just wish I had the skills to help him out, unfortunately my limited programming skills are very rusty, and from the dark ages.

With the release of 010 editor version 9? They added a feature I requested.
The ability to call functions in a dll file.
I will no longer write a full functioning stand alone program for public release.
Everything will go through 010 during the test phase and will not be released to the public.

010 is free for 30 days then you have to commit to a buy in.
I will be coding things to look for a paid for version at some point.

I will be in contact with the people at SweetScape to add in any suspected registrations to exclude as legal.

Jealousy is a nasty thing. So far I had thought that the small SH5 modding community was relatevely immune to it, but I was obviously wrong

Wishing all the best to these efforts , Rest assured the community waits with baited breath for the fruits of this labor and headache .
Do not let the crud lose you any sleep .

I am just a listener , but since accolades/kudos are free , i give them profusely and thoroughly hope anyone standing in your way in these endeavors will step aside for the betterment off the game .
Good luck and fair seas .
