Jane "AVP Coder" proved to be an industry fake!

Postby Mug UK » Thu Sep 05, 2019 7:28 pm

This is a real eye-opener for anyone who's ever read about this person and what they have claimed to have done within the gaming industry, especially AvP on the Atari Jaguar.

https://airentertainment.biz/2019/08/30 ... try-fraud/

There's a link in the above article to the original YouTube "interview" which lists the actual truth (as comments) from the real developers / owners of the companies at the time.

There's even a mention of the interview he did with Alive #8.
My main site: http://www.mug-uk.co.uk - slowly digging up the bits from my past (and re-working a few): Atari ST, Sega 8-bit (game hacks) and NDS (Music ripping guide).

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk

Indeed an eyeopener. Andrew/Jane used to hangout on IRC. I can recall spending quite some time chatting with this guy. Yup, some pretty unusual conversations. If only I had made logs! I still have his email address. Yup, I asked him to track down the author of GFABASIC because he "seemed to know people". That request didn't yield any results. Still have his old email address in my mailer. :P

Very strange because only the other day in the Amiga community someone claiming to be Echo of LSD for over 10 years turned out to be fake too.

But the real guy was found.
