Unfortunately this is false. He initially said he would, but when I asked I was turned down. Which isn't to say that I don't still have my own work (including a fully translated main script and several hacked graphics); it just doesn't look as nice as the screens Avi posted.
Oh wow, I thought he gave you what he had done at the time (since from what I've read, doesn't look like DDS is working on it either). It's odd that he offered then turned you down like that.
Perhaps if asked nicely enough, he might just post what work he did have of his projects to the Abandoned Projects section. That's what the section's for, and if he worked on them off and on for 16 years it would be a waste of his years of time and effort not to do so when there's so much interest by folks to carry on the torch of his legacy.
