Quoted from Aurich:
Thing is, in the middle of the thread Mike went "screw that, I'm giving everything away!" And cool, good for him, he's of course free to do that. But it wasn't clear what that meant. He's promised people who were coloring for him a cut of the sales. So were they going to still get paid? It seemed like the deal was some files might be given away, the ones he did himself at least, some might be $50 still, or maybe they'd be "pay what you like". I still don't honestly know.
If you know then speak up. But you didn't know about the $50 charge, or the locked files, so I'm kinda thinking you're not actually sure yourself. I think you're just defending "generic" SmartDMD, which is totally open, totally editable, and a DIY kind of product.
Thats what im talking about. It was all heresay in the beginning and he was trying to figure out what was going to be done. But since he has stated otherwise and you continue to leave the old "facts" in that are nowhere near facts. Yes at the beginning he was thinking about charging for the roms. Did he ever do it? Not that im aware of. Has he since changed it? Yes so lets edit stuff to the correct info as of now.
I did know about the $50 and the locked files. But when you started this thread that was allready starting to change. by the end of the first page i told you it changed. Mike told you it had changed, his thread where you say you are getting your info from has changed. Your thread however has not. Just update it and take all the old stuff out, that we know to be incorrect now.
