It's a shame you feel that way. I thing CCProjectGenerator is a great idea and can be useful, no comment about this
The discussion is more about what tools can/should do to make cocos2d developer happy
Clearly we do not totally agree on this, but this is life no ? Just share your point of view on the subject if you have any, it can be interesting
I thing one tool is enough to not confuse people more
A clean website with link to official repository, a direct .zip download of different cocos2d versions, and a link to a tool for managing your projects and visually editing them. It's clear and it lets developer choose what best feels their needs.
I agree many people didn't use SB, but some did, I was one of them. Steffen wrote a great book about this too. But it's also clear that now, not too many must use SB, and even cocos2d-objC ...
So let's try to reverse this ...
