Let's Celebrate "rmenhal-day"!
Posted 03 May 2005 - 04:43 AM
There are many God-like members here, but by the end of 2004 we likely *all* 'worshipped' rmenhal as the omnipotent one!
Let us not forget him and thank him for what he's done for us ... here's to rmenhal.
(I hope this thread will become a virtual shrine for members, old and new, to do likewise. )
Footnote: it seems he also left a treasure for us to unearth ... only time will tell if it (Ndure) was our destiny!

Sometimes you gotta wonder IF the softmod scene would be around without him.

Massive thanks man, and I'm sure that those who aren't echoing the praise here have either missed this thread, or are somewhat uninformed ;p

I'm an idiot
I just spend a lot of time reading and learning the hard way.
Regardless of whoever made something really cool, made a tutorial easy enough for me to understand, etc etc.
I salute all of you.
(and when trying to return the favor, I'm aware that all my knowledge comes from other peoples work, and if I'm able to answer (well ... apart from a thing or 2, grin) the poster of the question should be able to get the same knowledge just from reading ... )
(knowing that some info is pretty hard to find, still keeps me answering, don't worry.)
Cheers to all of you. Yes ... you know who ....

Now thats a pain in the ass!
Anyhow, I just wanna say nice work to everyone who has donated time and effort to the softmod scene! rmenhal, nice work. I wish everyone would code such bad ass programs, instead of just wingin' it with C++!
Back in the days...man. Might have less newbs if things were still like that!
Slow ass BIOS patching.
Constant flow of shitty hard drive tools.
Endless parade of buggy font hacks that newbs insisted to use.
A good audio hack that stupid newbs never used.
A thin line to tread between EEPROM safety and corruption.
Live updates totalling your XBox.
Constant need to sign and patch files.
Incompatibilities with other XBoxes.
Well back then it didn't seem as bad, lol. With no major installers there was alot less newbs. The few screwed around and managed a dumb font hack install that was always a good laugh. Nowadays newbs are so stupid with the advent of autoinstallers its often I hear something on IRC like "i installed the itools dashboard 4 my xbox now it say something about games where can i download games please hurry i wanna show my freinds huyuck". Sad, but, at least it shows amazing progress.
Either way, with how slick the tools are now, whats next...?
Edit: ...Jesus I need to get a hobby besides working this eternal struggle to help people. I joined the 25th of September, 2002, and all I've really done is that Action Replay guide and the XGuides Wiki, hehe.

...I don't blame you. I started cutting back heavily on my posts here because too many n00bs ask the same fucking questions--it's sickening. There are 3 things they need to do before posting here--read the pins, search, and read the readmes of the apps/installer/etc they want to use.

i've been wanting that in my sig for about 4 moths but i cant find it anymore!
Anyway, to rmenhal specificly and all other developers working towards a "one button hack".

I would love to get to know a few stars of the xbox softmodding scene, like morden kaiken, i think thats how you spell it, anyway, he was an AMAZING guy,
the likes of angerwound, morden, ldots,rmenhal......sniff sniff.....where are they all????
of course, we have a few stars still, like pedrospa, i remember, he would start a thread, ask a really conufsing questions, well to me anyway, and many pages after that thread, a new exploit would be found lol.
