Usually, when mods get incredibly famous, a lot of haters or ?Inter Trolls? ? for some unknown reason ? begin to bully its creator. And we have witnessed this happening in a lot, I mean A LOT of mods. But now, iCEnhancer unfortunately, is the new victim of this trend.
A couple of days ago, Hayssam Keilany released his latest version of iCEnhancer mod for Grand Theft Auto IV. iCEnhancer is one of the best graphical mods for GTA IV, and that is a fact. Actually, a lot of websites reported the news, which includes Eurogamer, GameInformer, PC Gamer, Polygon, etc.
But a day after its release, Keilany announced that he will be taking a long break because of all the hate he has been receiving from the GTA IV community, ENB and other modders as well.
?So yep, that?s it. At every release it?s the same, since 1.2. People spitting on me, my work, everything I do just because people know me or whatever.
I spent days, weeks, months doing 3.0, released it because I thought people would like it and stuff. If you don?t then I?m sorry, but it?s how I like my GTA.
I?m going to release the installer and downgrader then I?m done for a while.
Thanks to the people who supported me and stuff, you guys are cool. No thanks for the guys trying to bring me down constantly. You guys did it after 4 years, I give up on haters,? Kielany said.
When something gets famous, hating messages will start to pop-up almost everywhere. Many gamers or people love hating things, cursing and blaming others so that they will be able to forget what is bothering them. And with the help of the Internet, they can be the greatest troll there is without any consequence whatsoever.
Actually, as far as we know, everyone is aware of these kinds of things. Well, almost.. Especially professional game developers or modders.
So we hope Kielany will think about things in a more professional way, and reconsider his decision.
