I understand why you would say that Wiz, but after reading the whole "Why your patch won't be completed" The decision to get the most time consuming and hardest stuff out of the way first seemed most logical, sure it may take longer to produce a demo, but that's what the videos are for.
I myself will work on this patch until it is complete. As I hope Durbs and Joseph Strife will as well, but in getting the events done first while they work on the story we are getting the biggest things out of the way first. Which will make it much harder to not finish. Abilities, items those aren't quite as hard to do or not IMO anyway, and the ENTD's are already done to the point I'm working on hence why my Events work
, tho you might have meant the ones associated with the battles, never the less i want to be able to actually "Play" it more then anyone, and as soon as we get to that point best believe everyone will know about it
Once the events for chapter 1 are done is when we will really start picking up, this is when the items and abilities that haven't already been modified will be done so that we can have a demo released, which in turn will make doing things like items and abilities for the chapters that follow much easier since a lot of the work will already be done.
I know its hard to see past the Lol'ness of it all and hey there is suppose to be some funny parts like with Dante and Snake, but the story itself as its been written is actually quite deeply involved, but i would hate to give anything away
You'll just have to try an trust us and keeping looking forward
