As you possibly know from http://www.facanferff.net/showtime/s...users-goodbye/ I decided to stop working in showtime plugins, but I believe there were some aspects that I didnít pronounce correctly, so this article I hope can fill some of those gaps.
1. Will you stop supporting Showtime plugins?
Yes and no, no for the aspect I wonít work in new plugins but yes for the aspect that if any other plugin developer asks me for help in creating/updating plugins Iíll help them.
2. Some of you have found error 403 in Showtime Plugin Youtube and many believed this was the reason for my ďretireĒ, is that correct?
No, I was aware of this error and tried many things to reproduce this error and nothing could help me reproduce the error, but this was not the reason for my ďretireĒ.
3. Will Showtime development stop?
Of course not, while I worked in Showtime Plugins, the main infrastructure (Showtime itself) is the work of Andreas ’man that actively is working and improving it.
4. Can donations change your mind about this?
No, I donít force anyone to donate, it is a decision of each one. What I can tell you is that the donations will help me in my studies and are not related to Showtime neither PS3.
5. This decision was made in cold?
No, I was already thinking in doing this since almost half an year ago, but only now I decided to advance.
6. Does this mean you will no longer work in Showtime plugins?
I donít know, only the future can tell. What I know is that for now I wonít but maybe in a year, two or more I can decide to come back. There are several constraints to take attention.

While this is very understandable as the developer has blessed us with 2 plus years of continued development on so many plugins for Showtime, it still sad to see us lose such a great talent and person. The good news is that facanferff has always kept his plugins Open Source so anyone with the skills can continue his work. If you would like to send a donation to facanferff for all his past work he blessed us with, be sure to visit his homepage @ facanferff.net and look for his donation link there.
We wish all best to truly a great developer and person in facanferff
Thank You for all the great work you have blessed the PS3/Showtime Community over these 2+ years.
A quote from facanferff
Starting from now, I wonít work in new plugins neither in updating existing plugins.
Despite that, all the plugins sources can be found at https://github.com/facanferff/showtime-plugins . Any person is free to adapt my plugins to new plugins for Showtime. I might release versions for fixes that other developers push to Github, but work from me donít expect it.
I want to browse now new things and new worlds.
With this said, goodbye Showtime Users,
