Well its been a great 2 years, but this is the end. First of all I would like
to take this time to thank everyone in RisingSun. Our wonderful founder, and
one of my best friends; our skilled suppliers who always came through; our
awesome coders who gave us some great cracks and trainers; and all of our
artists, who gave us cool logos, nice tunes, and great ascii. Its been one
hell of a ride but its time for us to take a break.

Why you might ask? Well lots of reasons I guess... GBA as a platform is really
coming to an end... I have no idea what Nintendo is doing, as theres very few
N-DS games coming out either.. I guess thats the biggest, but we've also just
been very unmotivated lately: Personal problems, other efforts, the general
lameness of the scene.

Now for the negative part of this goodbye.. I would like to comment on the
scene in general. Only 5 years ago I would have said the scene was doing okay.
Sure the BBS era had ended, but there was still atleast dignity in the console
scene. Remember when we actually used like amiga ascii? I guess most people
dont, I see all of these console groups using PC ascii and noone cares.
Remember when we used 8.3 file names and _ in dir names? I guess most people
dont, because.i.see.alot.of.crap. :P Remeber when guys wouldnt publicly claim
they haxxor'd BBS' in 1999 (when the BBS scene was dead) to prove their "scene
cred". Sheesh, when i see some "oldskool" guys acting like warez/p2p whores...
I dunno. But I dont really let it get me down. The scene spirit still lives on
inside us, amiga will never die.

Back to the positives... As I previously said, we've had a lot of fun. I would
like to give a special greet to all those who gave us competition. Mode7 - the
legend will never die. Eurasia - Where are you Z, we all miss ya! Venom - Ahh
I seriously cant hate you guys :) Also I must give love to our friends in
Japan from Caravan, thanks for all your love, we will continue to be close.
Special love to all of our siteops and traders, dont worry we will still
support everyone.

I also must thank everyone who came out to our RisingSun party last year, that
was alot of fun. We will do the same this year and as long as we can. Without
parties how could we swap 880kb porns anyway. :P Friendship is what matters,
legacy, loyality and respect in 2005.

See you all on the next console, we are going to enjoy our nap now :)

Really hate to see RS quit. They were one of the last groups keeping the oldskool spirit alive, and they were always about quality. But they're right, the GBA scene is at an end and more and more nerds who don't care about scene standards is showing up. Seems like any kiddie with a licence to be annoying can spread GBA releases these days. And they complain about cracktro's and spread "redumps" instead of cracktro-removal-patches. Flooding the scene with useless crap seems to be the agenda of this century.

See you in other groups RS!

I really couldn't care less if a cracker group of today quits or not. Right now, today, they do nothing but spread illegal copies of software. Back then the cracking groups used to have some creative outcome out of it all (demos, game making, whatever), at least I see it this way.

Anyway. RS is a top group. Hope they will return.
