Please do not mistake me for the author or a dev of XQEMU

Okay, it seems that there's a bit of confusion about this here, and JayFoxRox pointed it out with a seemingly angry post on reddit today when I said I'm "semi-retired".  What I meant by that is that I occasionally stop what I'm doing to come back to the xbox emu scene to tinker with xqemu a bit, and interact with those who ask me questions.  There's no bad blood between us, I told him personally that I'm sorry and it wasn't my intention.  So because of that (and more), I feel it necessary to write this to avoid any further confusion.

My blog is by no means the official xqemu blog/site.  Nor have I claimed it to be. 

I do seem to get alot of people giving me credit for xqemu, but frankly, I haven't really done anything significant to thanked for.  To be perfectly honest, the most I've really done is add a missing texture or surface format and a quick and dirty fix here and there to get a few games up and running.  I gave him a little advice based on my experience in the beginning, but nothing he wasn't smart enough to figure out in the first place.

Although I've said it a few times before (but still, probably haven't said it enough), not only are espes and JayFoxRox the ones that deserve the majority of the respect, but they are also stronger/smarter devs than I am and have surpassed me a long time ago in skill.  I've had plenty of [undeserved] spotlight for a while now.  I think it's time they got a bit more where it's due.

Now, I'm not saying "don't ask me questions" or anything like that.  I can honestly say that espes and JayFoxRox are much more qualified to comment on it, since I haven't done anything as in depth as they have.  In fact, I get lots of questions about Xenia from time to time, and I have to tell everyone straight up that I haven't done a darn thing in that project since 360 is not and never was any area of expertise to me.  Heck, I never had a CPU that could run it up until yesterday! O_o

Once again, just writing this so everyone knows I have no intention or desire to steal any credit from this.  On top of that, I refused to take the full credit for Cxbx because caustik is still the author, and if it weren't for him, we wouldn't have ANY Xbox emulators at all!  All minds clear?  Good.  Thanks for reading.
