Hello everyone.
I said that Datedit v1.5 was almost done, almost ready. And at that time it was, but since then many things have hapenned. To cut the story short, the 1.5 update became bigger than I expected, and I dug up into some coding problems. Having said that, I want to tell you that v1.5 is being delayed, probably very seriously.

Same with GRPEdit. Things with it became a bit more complicated than I first thought, and I ask anyone who applied for its testing to forgive me, but I don't have anything stable and useful to test. And I can't really tell when will I possibly have.

I wish however that these be the only problems I am touched by. Although nothing bad has actually happened, I feel that my active involvement in the SC Community has reached its end. Although before I felt otherwise, I realized that I am no longer a teenager who can devote his time and efforts to a video game. I want my life priorities to be set properly and this, unfortunately, requires me to give up on SC modding. Heh...I'm 22, I've yet got a life before me to conquer.

I need a break, and a serious one. Sometime I plan to finally complete and release Datedit v1.5 and GRPEdit, but I have no clue myself when could that be. It will just happen when it will. I wish to thank everyone in all places I've been to, it was a great pleasure to get to know you, talk to you, and learn from you. The SC Community adventure was THE adventure of my teenage years, and that's how I want to remember it. I wish you all the best in continuing this awesome experience, that I had the honor to be a part of, and have fun with you.

I won't vanish completely, I will still answer mails and chat on IM, but other than this, it's practically curtains for me.

Thanks again for everything and goodbye.

It's funny how the shadow topic and the topic itself are both in updates.

In what ways did datedit 1.5 become bigger than expected? What hopeless features were you slaving away over?

DatEdit was the greatest dat editor tool since, well Arsenal. tongue.gif I first got an alpha version of it, and I remember I was amazed by it's beauty and simplicity. You have done a great job, many will miss you, and I will be one of them.

Datedit was one of the best Dat ever tools I have used. It's a shame though you have to leave but ever bird must fly the coup and go live on their own.

You were a great modder for the modding team. I hope you come back when starcraft2 is released so you can make a dateditior for that.

--Good bye. Even though you might not of known me.
