It was somewhere in the year 2012, when I got my own iPad 2. Getting this thing on my hands felt like a key to millions of doors, that I could open and explore...
But after a year of “exploring”, I realized the “key” lead me only to some limited paths and consisted by only few things, which could be done:
Install a game > follow the rules in the game > end the game, because you got bored. And so later I got introduced to the world of Jailbreak.
The purpose of Jailbreak is described by its own name. Instead of using my iPad as an entertainment device, I was able to use it as a tool similar to a compact PC, perfected for my needs. Hacking games is not an exclusion of things I could do.
February 2018, while I was playing an online game with not permitted abilities, I saw a guy even more advanced than me and he told me about the tool „Flex 3“. In short it’s a tool, which allows to download and create patches.
The list of uploaded patches to download is incredibly huge and of course the list included 2 patches for Deepworld: “Walk Through Walls” and “Walk On Air“.
These two things made me play Deepworld, which I stopped playing for about two years, again. Although these patches made me insanely overpowered, I pushed it even further by creating other ones, which I uploaded for everyone to use (my first mistake). After running around with the patches in Deepworld, people started to ask me how to get those and I didn’t resist and said how to do it (my second fatal mistake). Why are those my mistakes? It’s because in my mind, I thought there are 2-5 people that would dare to hack their devices followed by hacking Deepworld, so it would result in having an „Elite“ group of people. But these people spread the instructions to other and soon the download counter on all of my patches went over 20. Unfortunately I started to see first details of patches getting in the wrong hands... To be honest, I wasn’t better...
So the only thing I could have done is remove my patches that are being free for everyone to download, by contacting the developer of the „Flex 3“ tool.
3rd April, I made a post on the forum, where I basically turn myself in, but nobody noticed it.
13th April (ironically it was the Friday), the most reported players caught the hit of the mighty ban hammer, including me, D4N_2xI_L. That was the point where I should have just left and stopped playing Deepworld, but that wasn’t possible for me and I kept playing as D4N_alt_1-15 with all the patches, until I came across @Everywhen
, who convinced me to not use them.
And so I now play as D4N_alt_infinite, without any patches, facing all the problems I came over 5 years ago.
What I want to add is, that I’m sorry for my actions (again). I don’t know if or how can revert those bad and unthought things I’ve done.
My masterpiece, I had to give up...
