AlonTrio has just updated the WAB site (For some reason, it won't let me post the WAB site. You all know what it is anyway.) with this news:
However, as you may have heard, former WAB members, including Yoshihiro, hve formed a new team. This will be called the SonyXTeam (site). Heres what they have to say:since the begining of the team wab birth i am lazy to read rumours, ****y forum, receive ****y mail, etc... so i decided to post a little and terminal wab history.
i got my first PSP near JUNE 2005 ( friendly offer by Snkorea and fx0day )
i started to code, and i was very happy to discover a new console, without any documentation, with a little compiler hacked from the ps2dev one ( thanks loser )
i coded and released some oldschool demo effects ( unlimited sprites, full screen hard scroll, etc...) always released with sources code.
Then with Fx0day we released the first psp multipart intro called "killing psp"
Then i coded another intro called "oldskool" under the name of AloneTrio. Lot of people were happy to see that i released sources too and start to code too from this sources.i was very productive in the ps2dev forum and irc chan.
i coded another "like-"trainer intro, that was a intro simulating a trainer for puzzle bobble. At this moment lot a forum starting to talk about alonetrio and it's no working trainer, etc... i never said it was a working one, just an intro.
So i had idea to code a "mega" demo with some screen from different team wanting participate to this demo "like old time demo days". To do that i needed to code a main menu using a routs capable of launching elf from differents screen team. I quickly coded this rout using a Bri3d tips. And the idea to try launching an official commercial eboot came. and Surprise worked !!!!
So i released the FIRST LAUNCHER under the name of wab "WAB ms Launcher" with source code.
At this moment near all psp web site starting to talk about WAB team and the famous ms launcher. and Wab was a real respected "team" ( alonetrio and fx0day ). We received lot of email asking us about joining WAB. And WAB meet yoshihiro...
Yoshihiro LOOKED LIKE very friendly and a very good coder. Providing nice new idea for the next launcher. So we decided to make him a WAB member. Yoshihiro started to release some great tools for the psp under the WAB name. I found a new job in paris and i leave the psp coding scene but always looking about yoshihiro's work. Trying to give you some news about it. Before this new job, i was jobless and going to paris is a little expensive. i saw my web stats growing so i decided to make a paypal donation account, to permit people who liked my intro, launcher, sources nice to make a DONATION for the ALREADY DONE WORK.
At the same time, talking with yoshihiro using msn make us ( fx0day and me ) very surprise about some yoshihiro's noobs coding question, but even if this questions were no sense, he released tools, etc.. so we didn't take care about them.But we were also surprise to see same kind of tools or functionality some day after WAB from other people.
Then yoshihiro starting to talk me about a methode to DOWNGRADE the psp firmware even the 2.0. I was very enthousiast about it. Asking for detail and technics. First he told me about a game sharing trick. Then some day after talking about a swap method. I also saw the psp-dev team association to this project. So even if i was far from the scene i was happy to know and WRITE NEWS on the WAB site about it. He was happy to talk about it in lot of forum, post me some video links, etc... ( same fake video link i posted on wab site ) sorry for this but when the info come from someone of your team you beleive it.
I saw WAB website stats growing and growing each days, and lot of people asking by thousands mail " WHEN WILL THE DOWNGRADER WILL BE RELEASE ?". and more and more paypal donation thinking it was for the downgrader. So yoshihiro with the help of pspupdates.com, make a big fake news saying that 1.52 and 2.0 JAP / US was now downgradable and need some paypal to buy a 2.0 EU, permiting yoshihiro to code and test a EU version of the downgrader.
I continued to ask yoshihiro about a release date without anymore information.Then last week the wab server hard drive break down, and i bought a new hd yesterday. I learn on different web site that wab was disolved, even if it is not my decision, i approve it ;).
FROM NOW WAB IS COMPOSED ONLY BY (Snkorea, Fx0day and AloneTrio). YOSHIHIRO IS NO MORE A WAB MEMBER AND WONT BE ANYMORE. WAB IS NOW, LIKE AT START, A PSP DEMO CREW ONLY. IF YOU ARE MOTIVATE AND CODER WANTING CODE DEMO OR LITTLE GAME FOR PSP, DO SOME GRAPHIC LOGO, DO SOME SOUND AND MUSIC. FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME AT ALONETRIO AT WAB DOT COM.
END OF STORY
MY personal feeling about yoshihiro:
like i can read on forums, i thing yoshihiro is not a real coder, he was always at the right place at the right time, i mean he take lot of it's code and idea from others and just mix it all. For sceptic people, just go catch yoshihiro then ask him some simple coding question like "what is a XOR exactly ?" or "what is the diference between compiling and linking ? " you think i am joking ? just ask him.
And if you want some info about the FAMOUS YOSHIHIRO DOWNGRADER mail him at:firstname.lastname@example.org m ( it is also it's msn add )
See you all soon in the next WAB production.
Personally, Iam notsurprised. This is just the end of a huge childish argument between AloneTrio and Yoshihro, as evidence by what AloneTrio had to say. Now that Yosh is free from the shackles of WAB, maybe we will se some releases.We are glad to introduce you the new SonyxTeam website !
The question you might have in mind is : "What the hell is SonyxTeam ?!!"
Well in Fact former WAB members left the WAB team for internal reasons and wanted to create a new team that would keep up working on WAB projects , especially the downgrader.
Therefore SonyxTeam is a PsP Devlopment group.
You can reach the team and ask them question about the SonyxTeam future and plans at #email@example.com .com
The SonyXteam is not affiliated with WAB or Alonetrio in anyways.
if you need to use an abreviation for our team just use SXT :)
This website is beeing administrated by both Yoshihiro and Mathieulh.
You are wellcome here but remember to behave correctly on the forums.
Also flamming or spamming is strictly forbidden.
The SonyXteam wishes you a nice stay ;)
Mathieulh has posted on the SonyxTeam site a response about AloneTrio's comments. Have a look:
For those trying to find it on hir site, it is under topics on the left hand side. I have great faith in SXT and what could come of them.Ok I decided first not to say a thing, but I am fed up of alonetrio behaviour so I will.
I wont say lies or anything like that, I'll just say what I do know from facts
I barely know Alontrio (as he never came to the wab channel before) and I never had anything personal against him, but I rely on facts:
- While Yoshihiro did almost 99.9% of the WAB work, Alonetrio was doing....nothing. All he was doing was enjoying the increasing ammount of visitors on wab.com where he and only he, did have the access to change or upload stuffs on it. Yoshihiro couldn't access any of the wab.com pages.
In order to make money he created a nice paypal account where he got 100% of the payments from it (while doing nothing). When someone asked him to remove the paypal cause yoshihiro got not a single cent for it he answered that he didn't care, he was jobless and wanted to keep all the paypal money for himself (I have seen the logs but didn't keep it, I regret it now)
- Then the downgrader story came up, Yoshi had a first downgrader version that didn't work on 2.0 so he thought it was wise to warn everyone (especially europeans) not to upgrade their PsPs as a downgrader was in the work. Of course Alonetrio thought it might be a good idea to leave his paypal on the website in order to get money that yoshihiro needed to get a european psp, yoshi had to create its own paypal account cause he got no cent from the one on wab.com and he posted it on pspupdates. Once yoshi collected the money he needed to buy a EU psp he didn't accept any gift from the paypal ! he even restricted people to send him money in his paypal settings and that was on august 31st ! But of course Alonetrio paypal remained on the website and he was still collecting money from a work he wasn't invovled in.
-Then Alonetrio thought it was a good idea to put adds on his website (wab.com) in order to get more money, of course yoshi and I were against that and even thought of getting rid of the wab.com affiliation
- Alonetro started to post crap news about his arrest or a fake downgrader video, why ? Probably because he wanted worried people to get on his website and clic on his adds or donate with paypal !
-Of course in the meantime people were flamming on yoshihiro because of alonetrio's crap while he didn't have to manage those.
-In the ALL WAB history alonetrio coded nothing but tech demos and a crappy and buggy first version of a wab launcher that almost boot no game (and that yoshihiro improved a lot on later versions) while yoshihiro was working on the hacks, I think yoshihiro codes WAY better than Alonetrio.
-Then suddenty for an unknown reason (maybe because he thought the downgrader was never gonna be finished and wanted to disculpt himelf fo any responsabilities regarding this matter) he just left out of sight (well he never came to the wab channel anyway) and shutdown wab.com website (it lasted 3 days)
-Then Alonetrio started harrassing yoshihiro by calling him on his phone at 1:30 AM
-Then as you migh understand, Yoshihiro and I were fed up of Alonetrio and we left WAB to create our own team called SonyXteaM and continue the previous wab projects as well as new ones.
-Then Alonetrio created his crappy post on wab.com
Here is a question for Alonetrio :
Exept of coding demos, a crappy unworking game launcher and enjoying money from paypal and adds from the website, what the hell did you do for wab ??
I can answer that question, it sums up to one word: Nothing.
