Hah... arrogance is common among developers. I understand that.
Let me rephrase, I was asking if it required something proprietary for me to be able to do it... not whether or not I was capable of doing it.
Think I've linked this before, CJ wrote a piece for our site outlining the processes involved. It's an enjoyable read whatever the level of understanding of the reader as it's not so much a technical document per se, more an overview.
Basically, CJ can do this stuff because he has a deep understanding and depth of knowledge when it comes to the ST, its games, how they do what they do and how to make them do other things when it suits him (i.e. hacking the tits off them - see D-Bug,etc.). Match that with what he does with the Jaguar, some leet SCPCD screen conversion routines and a desire to give people games to play, and there you have it. Probably very few people cover all those fields and can couple them with a desire to make it happen.
He does sometimes come across as arrogant though, you're right, but then... I think you're allowed to when you can back it up with 20 years of release after release ;0)
