I think you never really respected me.
As some people mentioned earlier, no matter how you did a casemaker, what people want to see are results. It's the suffering of the user-praise. Users mostly don't praise a programmer due to his work, but due to his result.
So if you did it with PALib, or AIGE, or Python, or Java, or Flash, or whatever, people won't bend a single bit to care about the methods. Sometimes I expect people to notice it, but I forget such rule.
So, if your source code is palib, or raw ds, it won't matter. I don't care if you use palib or what ever else you want, since it's not me who are programming it. If your code is good, bad, complicated, organized, broken, etc isn't anything I want to change on you. All I'm saying is that you say that making a PW engine is easy, but it isn't really so easy. You get things wrong too easily, and don't try to understand them (as most people in CR when I post in other topics, really).
I'm saying that you should consider the hardships of a PW engine accordingly. Like I say, there are three types of people when it comes to programming:
-Those who don't program, and say it is hard.
-Those who think they program or program only a little, and say it is easy.
-Those who really program, and say that it just looks easy.
Nothing in programming is easy, it just looks easy. Even with the most easy path of the libs, it isn't easy. If it was really so easy, anyone would ACE it on a week, and not even Capcom does so.
I use a gif lib to read the gifs, so I could say that loading gifs are stupidly easy, but I know as a programmer that loading gifs form base isn't a single bit easy. I say that using it is easy, or that it is now simple at least.
Think about it. But know that as I said first, I don't want to lower the point of AADS. It be on the DS is a very nice thing, since the DS isn't just click point development. I do think you will finish AADS, since you don't look like the senseless person to get something like this and lie saying it will be done when you feel you can't do it.
And at jibber (since he posted after I did): It is really simple to say that when you're on my end. I recall how people were amazed by pwlib 1.0 when I released it. The big problem here is that ignoring quality, PWLib has a chance of been marginally used just because AADS is "DS". People get amazed to easily, and frankly don't care about things that should be cared about. So think you develop a program that you put 100 days of work, add 100000 custom possibilities. Then a guy pops out and makes something that makes people leave most of your program just because the other is "DS" for example. I guess you wouldn't like it. But I know it is a thing that won't change. And as I mentioned, I was commenting on the programming level. There's no way to stop AADS by attacking it, I know, so people should stop talking like I'm attacking it. I stopped let some time ago, didn't I?
