I was just on Digg and this hack was being discussed and a couple of responses I'll post here.

=================================


Ive contacted Squares legal department myself. They told me they never sent out a cease and desist for Crimson Echoes.

Either someone is lying or someone got sent a fake letter.


===================================


I called their legal department, the telephone number is 310-846-0400. Call them and ask them yourself. It might take a bit to get through though.


===================================


Thats because this all is bullshit. I got in touch with Squares legal department(Phone number, 310-846-0400) and when I was finally able to speak to someone, I was told they never sent out a cease and desist order for Crimson Echoes.

They started this drama because they were no where near done with the game. The admin from a famous rom hack site called Romhacking.net threatened to ban them from the site for starting all of this drama.


===================================


I already told you, man, by e-mail and PM

www.karlsonandkarlson.com

They defended my ass in the case Blizzard Inc. Vs. well... me... Concerning my Diablo 2 item shop (damn me for not being chinese and immune to US lawsuits)

They're specialized in intellectual property. Go to the website, e-mail joseph (preferably, my lawyer) and tell him Frank sent you. Really. Do it.

THIS FALL UNDER FAIR USE OF COPYRIGHT ACT. THIS IS EXACTLY LIKE A FANFICTION (see: fanctiction.net) AND THUS NOT ONLY TOLERATED BUT LEGAL. AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT CLAIM OWNERSHIP OF THE CHARACTERS OR SELL FOR A PROFIT THERE IS NOTHING ILLEGAL IN MAKING A FAN GAMES.


====================================

Intesting to say the least.

Well I thought so too, until I played the leaked ROM. At that point, the whole "They started this drama because they were no where near done with the game" shit becomes completely ridiculous because it's clearly a nearly-complete ROM hack. I'm inclined to think the others on Digg are just trolls trying to get attention, and nothing short of a public statement from Square-Enix can top-trump the actual ROM I've got here.

And the leaked build was apparently from 6 - 12 months ago, imagine what the 98% build must be like.

I was actually focused on the point that this might be a drama, just might nothing more, since it said the admin of romhacking.net bitched them ought about it.

If anyone is friends with the admin at romhacking.net maybe you could check out if this is bullshit. I went to their forum and couldn't find any recent threads on crimson tide "I couldn't find a search for the forum so this was a browse of the thread names" and it makes me think that the admins deleted the threads if this is a fake drama. So if anyone knows an admin there try and find out what is going on as in is this real or just a publicity stunt.

That makes no sense though. It's proven by this old, leaked version that they put a ton of work into this, I'm afraid I don't understand why you'd think it's all fake.

*edit*
The C+D I mean. Why do all this work to NOT release it? You can tell they did the work, and were capable of doing the work (via the leak version and the videos on YouTube made of a play through of the near complete build during testing).

No I don't think it's all fake. I think the hack may be awesome but the letter was done to make the release huge if it is fake. Why they would do something like that I have no idea if they did.

I just figured if someone knew the admin at romhacking.net they could find out if the admin bitched them out because it's bullshit or not, nothing else.

Keep in mind that the admin of romhacking.net is a lying piece of shit who steals people's work and benefits from it against their will.

Yes. My stuff is hosted on that site without my permission and a DMCA takedown notice was ignored, so I'm in the process of taking legal action against the site.

Wow. I know they are supposed to be an archive, but I know that if anyone had ever requested we take anything down from here it'd be down in a heart beat. That's pretty nasty to keep it up like that.
