It was not about giving credit, and it never was. Rolly linked to the original link, which was expired, that's not redistribution. ateam redistributed the file which was against the author's wishes, which was listed in the readme of the original Patch.7z. At this point it's not a question of arguing who was right and who was wrong here, it is about biting the hand that feeds you. Yes, a debug patch is an incredible feat, which jde6r8hed found, not any of us. A derivative work created based on the information the patch gave, such as cheats or a disassembly explaining what the patch did, might have been an acceptable workaround. If you unzip the Patch.7z with the password jde6r8hed provided (required for download as well) and rename the xdelta and delete the readme, this situation would have been impossible to avoid.
Anyway it's over now. I hope the patch at least assists in a real SGGG ENG ver, not like the, uh 3(?) before it? Sega themselves also teased at an Eng SGGG in their Sega Forever campaign, and we saw how well that went over, lol.
