Phantom-X has been a part of FAF for many years and has many fans, but development for it seems to have been forgotten about or something. I saw this thread and this other one and was wondering why those threads and such a large bug were seemingly ignored. Then, I checked the FAForever/faf-phantomx Github and realized that Phantom seems to lack an active maintainer. So, I figured I'd increase awareness of this and ask; is there anyone capable who wants to fix and maintain Phantom-X?
Do any devs want to fix/maintain Phantom-X?
I'll throw in advanced Github permissions for future maintainers.

@femboy I've already done a decent bit of lua for FAF
I may eventually look into fixing Phantom-X, but I have other things on my plate these days. Hopefully someone will volunteer

I won't commit to maintaining it, but if no-one volunteers in the near future I might have a brief look both to see if it's an easy fix, and if my AI is compatible with it. However my experience of Phantom is a grand total of watching 1 cast and part of 1 replay.

@jip it seems like phantom does its own thing for full share vs no share so maybe something in that is outdated. Ill look through it when i have a free period.
Just made a PR that should fix the issue. Just waiting on getting it merged/made a maintainer.
I, for one appreciate the effort, folx.
"Learn Lua and be the change" is something you've almost tempted this zero-experience old-guy to try, but now is not the time in my life where I have the time, so thank you to those of you that do. Best I can do at this point is try to isolate things we find in our games and bring them up to smarter people.
@SpikeyNoob I can look at it tomorrow, can you share the link here?
A work of art is never finished, merely abandoned
