    I used to work a lot with Habbo retros, and had my own hotel. But havn't worked with them for around 2 years now, used to play on Habbo when i was younger back in 2008 :p, are they still as big as they where?
    I thought Otaku Studios was the largest source of Habbo retros but it seem's to have removed its section, sorry if this is the wrong section just thought I'd see how they are going as I started to reminisce them :p

    Not really. Otaku Studios' owner got sued by sulake for licensing an emulator (phoenix) and making a shitload of money off it. There are still a lot of retros that get many users. A couple english ones are Fresh and Habboon. There are also some foreign hotels that get 1-8k daily as well. Most hotels still use phoenix, but I prefer the up-to-date, r63b ones. I don't think the retro community is as big as it was in 2008, due to everyone releasing they're stuff instead of people ripping others work, licensing for money, etc, but there's still some developers out there that are contributing to the community. Hopefully one day we'll see the community come together again.

    They have not died if anything are growing more then habbo is. agreeing with sledmore 100% Habbo will die before retros do.

    The Retro Community, is certainly not dead/dying. There are people opening retros daily to hope that they will become like Fresh or Habplus.

    Are you not sane? The retro community is dying.

    Take a look around, most developers have retired only releasing what they made NOT helping to teach the next generation. The few developers that lurk around are ones that have been around for like 4+ years. Even they don't help out as much only sit back and criticize. Sure new hotels are opening, but do you see any hang around for long? Do you see more then 1 (english) hotel getting 1k + users daily? Do you see the retro community booming? No.

    It has fallen apart and has become unstable. From Sulake taking everyone down, to everyone just ripping off everyone, or as far people Leonising everything *cough Leon Hartley* .

    First off, how is it the developers responsibility whether they teach the new generation? It isn't developers fault whether the new generation learns or not, they need to learn themselves like the older developers.

    Secondly, criticism is good. If you call it bullshit you have your head up your ass. Criticism is something an owner can prove on not cry about, if you hate criticism shut down your retro and fuck off.

    Thats my 5 cents.

    There are still pretty good developers who still focus on making Habbo emulators and what not but they don't release it in public because what they develope and what they make is mostly aimed for hotels that they are going to further develope for and going to work for. It's too bad that they don't feel like going open anymore like open as for making Habbo emulators to be released but that's just how it goes.

    The developers you see now are no real developers they steal others work do some editing work and just claim that they've coded it all. Some people are stupid to believe that and some stay smart and can see easily that it's based off others work and the problem is the people who rip-off other's work are probably going to stay for a long while now and we're not able to do anything so that's that.


    The retro's are not dead and will never die, even though Sulake is still watching nothing's gonna stop now.

    I never said it was their responsibility, I implied that they should help out younger developers and teach them the tricks of the trade.

    Again I never said it was bad. You are being to stupid and just getting ahead of yourself to take actually take in what I said. I implied that all they do is criticize other peoples work, they don't release anything or when they do, they just flame people for criticizing them. I do not own a retro nor do I dislike criticism. You sir are the one who needs to fuck off and learn to take in what people say and not just jump straight at there throat.

    It's not your 5 cents, it's your daily stupidness kicking in.

    Guarantee you I am calm.. I'm not happy that the retro scene dying. It shouldn't be, but people have to face the facts that it is.

    In my opinion;

    Reason: As you can see, there were great emulator developments, and now-a-days it's just phoenix/bcstorm renames with just 1 or 2 lines editted! I think habbo retro community has to work together, and try to become EVEN better than Habbo!

    Can't you guys stay on-topic for once without fighting each othe for once. If you're not agreeing with someone's opinion than simply say so and move on with it fighting isn't going to help the thread neither the people who are in this thread. Just stay the hell on-topic.

    I don't think the retro world is dying at all. They are even growing like plants everyday there is a new hotel opened and some are good and some are not so it's not really dying to be honest.

    If a plant dies you just plant another one.

    I'm not really a habtard like I used to be in 2011 - 2012, but even I know it's dying.

    Put it this way. A hotel in 2012 could open, and would get 15 users - and grow up to the 100s and prosper.

    I've seen about 5 hotels within 2013 and 2014 open, and close within 3 months time because of not getting enough users. New hotels don't get enough users.

    Look at the topsites, I mean the #5 retro has like 10 people on.
