The open source idea was a mistake

So, half a year has passed since I decided to take a bite that was too big to chew. I learned the hard way that trying to convert a big project to a new coding standard is way harder than just building something from scratch.

If there's any AS3 wizards out there, which is a rarity these days (it's basically a dialect of javascript), perhaps I could enlist some community volunteer work to take over the conversion efforts.

Alternatively, I'm strongly consider starting up a new project called TerraRaptor's Animations Platform... TRAP! This would be a new flash platform built on more professional and modern coding techniques, and I would then just port the animations over to it. But it probably would lack some of the fancy interface stuff (like the breeder selection screen and the pokedex). But I dunno how important any of that stuff is to people. Ehhh so basically just a "more porn, less bullshit" gallery.

It'd also have non-pokemon stuff that I may be interested in animating some day. Thoughts?

On an unrelated sidenote, I'd like to plug the newly created Feral Pokemon Porn discord channel. It's not mine, but you can find me there :)
