These Flash, 3D/VR ZZT gimmicks are a disservice to the community for personal gain.
A "gimmick?" You for real, Dave? This project does not charge money, the source code is open, feedback from the community
has been listened to, with changes carefully catalogued, and all of it has been in the developer's spare time. If this is for personal gain, I'm certainly not richer for doing any of this.
I've done SQA 10+ years for the government, I know what I'm talking about. I rather discuss the future of ZZT than get into a pissing contest, but you're pretty much hell-bent on this "next gen" thing, so be it.
On the subject of pissing matches. I've resisted calling out your narcissism and passive-aggressive behavior for two years, but I've had enough. You are going to regret throwing your credentials around.
I've been a professional software engineer for much longer than you've done QA. I've designed situational awareness software for the U.S. military. I work with a wide variety of languages, not just Flash. I've made over two dozen
games. This is to say nothing of the prolific writing I've also done (professionally and non) or the dozens of presentations (some entirely off-the-cuff) I've delivered to audiences.
Why do you root for someone else's failure? You never liked this project and seemingly never wanted to get involved (other than sending me feature requests, many of which I've granted). Yet somehow you genuinely believe that I'm personally attacking you simply by creating software that you don't like.
