Title: Someone is stealing your work
Post by: Cyan on November 24, 2007, 11:18:40 AM
Hi,
I'm new on the forum but I'm an old player and come often here :)
Thanks for your work.


I'm part of a recently started translation team on Final Fantasy Tactics A2 (on nintendo DS). Someone came to our website claming he will help us, but he was doing really bad things, and redistributed the patched rom without giving credit to us.

He said he will do it on his own and that he hacked our patcher (even if there's nothing to hack, it's opensource), and he is now saying the translation he is providing is his.

On his website I found a lot of pre-patched roms, patches from AGTP and without even giving you credit. Even worst he tells everyone he is the one translating them, and change the filenames to his own version number.
For example : Treasures Of Rudras AGTP 2.0 become Treasures Of Rudras hzy1.1
the readme included says : I corrected all the bad translation (but he is not capable of speaking good English) and finished the trans because the first team never completed it.

I think you might want to know he is stealing you so I registered here.
I don't know if I'm allowed to give his website here (there are roms on it, so it's forbidden to link to it).
his name is HaZeY

Tell me if you want his website address, or you can come to #ffta2-trans@efnet

See you,
Cyan


Edit : He started to credits some teams (you including), but he is still providing his own readme along with the roms.

Edit2 : Thank you for your visit to the chan :)
I'm looking forward to your next release.

Hey, nice to see Defeufeufeu's working on another project. Hope he finishes his Phoenix Wright editor soon, but this is cool news.

Also, for a more internet soap opera version of the above, I found this:

Hmmm...pretty weird...
But somewhat amusing.

i think someone should DDoS his site. especially with gay thai porn & Nigerian 419 scams.
Seriously....

If his site ended with a tk, I believe it's already been dealt with.
