Updates: Dontation ContraversyQuote:
The Media Cabinet Construction Kit v1.5 + Star Wars Expansion:
This version of the Media Cabinet and Construction Kit includes the PSD files and the ACTION files which will work in all versions of Adobe Photoshop CS. The Media Cabinet is a virtual shelving cabinet for multiMAN to represent and display your games, movies and music plus much more.
StarWars Expansion Pack:
A lot of the figurines included in this package are taken from my own personal collection which I started back in 1995, at present I have roughly 200 Film and game collectables which I have collected from around the world and am still adding new items every year. Most of the Star Wars figurines stand at 12-15inches and take up most of my (yes you guessed it) Media Cabinet for which The Media Cabinet was inspired. I photographed and edited most of the figurines within Photoshop and have made it my goal to make everything look as realistic as possible.

A while ago before I released The Media Cabinet, I spoke to dean the creator of multiMAN asking how the donations were going, I was pretty shocked to learn that in a period of 2 years very few people had donated for the work he kindly releases free of charge. At that point I told him I would open a donation account and tranfer any donations I recieved for the themes I would be creating, he immediately insisted that I should keep the donations as its not for multiMAN. I declined and the argument went back and forth. I then insisted I would split all the donations 50-50. Some time after the release of the Media Cabinet, and near on 30,000 downloads later from just one link I had recieved NO donations what so ever, up until a point where someone asked me in the forum how the donations were going, only then did I recieve a total of 4 donations (two of which are friends & Beta Testers).
REFER TO MY ORIGINAL POST:
I would be lying if I was to say this did nothing to my moral as it made me think how tight can so many people be than to not donate at least a dollar, and if not to me but to the man that made all this possible - Dean!. On a personal level during my attempts at making themes for mutiMAN I have recieved many nasty remarks from people on a daily basis while trying to talk to dean in the IRC multiMAN channel. Words to the effect of The Media Cabinet is an apple ripoff, a straight port from iBooks, tallentless, some of these people are the same ones who made themes by downloading the first picture that poped up on google, downloaded it and called it a theme. I could name and shame a few but wont as they know who they are no matter what nickname they hide behind.
Someone said that charging a fee for homebrew would kill the whole scene. What a load of crap that is, have you seen iphone/HTC community along with Cydia the Homebrew Store??, what about the frigging dongles you all went out and bought to jailbreak your PS3?? I bet you all moaned about paying for that aswell huh?. Some of the coders and artists who develope for those devices wouldnt dream of doing anything for the ps3 because it being so hostile and bitchy.
Anyway, if you havent guessed it yet, this has been an exercise for me in seeing what the reaction would be if one was to start putting the smallest of charges on so called homebrew. I had a pretty good idea what this would lead to and sadly the fact is that this so called ps3 community is lacking in many area's, you wonder why its so slow with new CFW comming out or new managers being released?, its all because of 2 things, jealousy and greed. What motivation do we homebrew developers have other than wanting to do it for ones self and knowledge?. I have proven one thing out of all of this and that is the majority of you want it NOW and for FREE, without so much as tapping your little finger on the thankyou button. Well its not worth releasing anything to be honest even for free so I'll be bowing out of this one. Wishing dean all best and hope he enjoys the knowledge hes gained through developing. As for you haters on IRC multiMAN channel, You guys have just been played.
This sounds like a cydia for the PS3 scene, of which is an excellent idea, and as you say Brubaker it might be a solution to an age old problem for Coders/Jailbreakers/Artists.
To everyone sending me PM's - I have taken all my themes offline. Also please do NOT send any more donations as I can no longer give refunds. This is all for the time being until I decide what to do. Thankyou.
