No offense, but you haven't the foggiest clue what you're talking about. The people who are helping them are under contract and NDA, so they're not talking, but that doesn't mean people aren't helping. How fast and good they are compared to Chris might be a different story, this isn't all easy stuff to do.
Edit: oops, didn't realize there was another page with a response from Randy already. Anyways, they're obviously not avoiding help from people who are actually serious, it's a lot of work. I wanted to help them with The Shadow, but I realized I just couldn't commit to the time, it would have meant the death of all my other projects I do for the community, and I wasn't willing to give them up even for color Shadow.
