Introduce Yourself Thread

Post by GF_Kennon on Tue Mar 10, 2009 12:07 pm

Ok, so here is the Introduce Yourself Thread, ill start

Zhs2 edit: Feel free to introduce yourself here, and tell us a few things about yourself (e.g. what you do, what games you like to play, what you hack, etc.) We'd love to hear about who you are! Wink

Hi, my name is James Kennon.

I have been hacking for a while now, somewhere around a year, but it was only simple stuff, rearranging tiles and the such, but I only started learning more advanced stuff more recently, I started experimenting with custom graphics and hex work and today I know tons about hex and graphical work, in my opinion, but their could be a person who wants to prove me wrong, but that can wait.

My first public announced hack is Metroid: Return to SR:388, it is a graphical overhauled hack with a nice bit of ASM in it to give it a new feel, as well as lots of things that have never been thought about, thanks to a few people this hack is becoming more exciting by the day, and is coming along nicely, the next announcement for my hack will be when I have a big video ready.

I am an avid Metroid gamer and have been playing Metroid for most of my life, I still have my original copy of super Metroid in mint condition, my best time on Super Metroid is a sub hour 0:57, I could vastly improve it if I did not grab as many items as I normally get, which is around 56% average. I have played most of the Metroid games, the exception is Metroid Prime 2 :echoes as I don't have it yet, I don't have Metroid Prime Hunters, but I have played it, and I like it for the fact that it is a portable 3D Metroid game, I have completed Metroid Zero Mission on hard mode as well.

I also like playing Warzone 2100, In the late 21st century, the world's civilizations are wiped out by a series of nuclear strikes. While most of the survivors form scavenger bands to survive, one group of people, who refer to themselves as "The Project," seeks to rebuild civilization using pre-war technology.

The game begins with the Commander, the protagonist, sending teams to gather technology in Arizona that would help with reconstruction. While gathering said "artifacts," the Project fends off attacks from an organization called the New Paradigm, which is under the command of an organization called Nexus, which is actually one man responsible for the nuclear war. In the final campaign, the Project launches a full-scale assault on Nexus, destroying it and thus removing all significant, organized barriers to its reconstruction of the Earth.

I love playing this game and I frequently play with other people on-line, if your interested about playing with me then send me a PM and we will talk. Cool

I might as well jump on the bandwagon too. Hello, forum members! My name is Zeke Sitkoff, and I'm proud to be co-administrator of the Metroid Construction forums.

I've never hacked. Truth be told, I only got involved in the community because of Bloodsonic himself, SM hacker extraordinaire. (Well, he's pretty good at it, so to speak. Very Happy) Since that, I created a channel on irc.esper.net, #doom, where we'd hold multiplayer matches and so forth. Today it doesn't get much use, but I hope we can turn it back into something people visit. =P GF_Kennon was one of my fellow Doomers and hacker peoples, and when he'd gotten the idea to create a full-fledged site from a college project, I'd jumped right on, and that's how Metroid Construction started.

Like I said, I don't hack. I've played all of the Metroid games, of course, but the last time I tried to hack (which, incidentally, was Super Metroid,) I got bored too quickly. Sad Instead, I mod day-to-day for Doom, when I get the motivation up for it, of course. Otherwise, I'm playing some various PWAD or another. I am impartial to the kinds of multiplayer you've got to bring, though, so Doom, Descent, Quake (all 3,) Warzone, some Mechwarrior, and pretty much anything else I'll be around to play. Don't be shy to PM me visit #doom looking for multiplayer of all kinds! =D

As for hacking stuff, I am versed in the use of a hex editor, but that's pretty much it. D:

I'm here. That's all you need to know.

That and the fact that I know my way around a hex editor and the no$gba debugger, especially when it comes to ZM/MF. I've also created several ZM hacks, most recently Escape From Metroid Zero Mission. It was mediocre.

Oh oh, me too!

Well, I'm squishy!

I've been haxer-ating Super Metroid for a year now, and have learned quite a bit! I am currently (3/11/09) working on a hack called Super Metroid World: Rainbow City, and a Pokemans hack, -name not to be released just yet;) - I like to hang around on #jzd when I have time, and have become friends with the Mario Bros and our own good GF_Kennon! I'm always open to meeting new people so who knows, maybe we could be friends too!

Anyways, lets see... about myself...
I'm an avid gamer, who spends most of his free time either playing video games, or hacking them! But I'm also an a huge fan of anime. I'd have to say my favorite is Fruits Basket, with Trigun coming in a close second place. Anything with a good plot, and I'll probably watch it!
My favorite games include: Final Fantasy VII, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Super Metroid, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Starcraft, and the list goes on! -in that order btw;) -

Lets see, what else?
Ah, I work at Subway! XD

Post by Phazar on Wed Mar 11, 2009 7:44 pm

Hello, I'm Phazar. I first started going beyond the usual in the Metroid games when I found Samus.Co.Uk and Metroid2002 a few years ago. I did a bit of speed running for a while, but shortly after I completed a section of Metroid2002 about Metroid Prime Hunters tricks, interdpth posted a topic about a "GBA hacking class" he was having on #jzd. Interested by learning how to hack, I decided to check it out. Now I make some hacks myself. Although I love making Super Metroid hacks, I also like to hack Metroid Fusion and attempt to make the impossible possible. I have some documents related to Metroid Fusion hacking on this site, in case you ever need them. That's just about all to my story, so hi! Smile

Hey.
I'm another one of your Super metroid hackers. The release of my first Super metroid hack is what brought zhs2 into the metroid community.
anyway, I'm pretty damn good with smile, most likely since I've been using it for almost 2 years. Also, I know a bit of ASM. I'm not one of those amazing guys out there like InsomniaDMX or Kejardon, but hopefully some day I'll be able to accomplish something real through learning. If you have something to ask of me, by all means, pm me. I need practice :)
Another hobby I have is Drawing. I'm not one of those manga book illustrators, but I'm pretty damn good. I've yet to meet someone who can draw better then me altogether. I drew my avatar btw.
hmmm, what else? oh noezz, my "introduce yourself" is mostly bragging silent
Oh yeah, here's something that isn't bragging: I'm not as good at super metroid as most hackers are. I get destroyed by hacks like easy cliffhanger, and even pantheon. (pantheon was not easy, squish. No way! )

My hacking origins story:

I saw a vid of Redesign on youtube several years ago, which was my first introduction into the world of Super Metroid hacking. It was something I was interested in but also something I never thought I'd do. At the time, I was an FFXI nerd/addict who didn't really have a life besides FFXI. Fortunately, I came to my senses, realizing it was an addiction I would never be able to control the time I spent on and forced myself to quit cold turkey. I went through a long time of withdrawal symptoms, and still to this day wish I could play again, but I can't.

(If you must know why I can't, I tallied up my playing time racked up in almost exactly one year of playing. I had around 200 days of playing time not including the afk time, which is over 13 hours a day spent playing. However, this is an average, and there was probably a 4 month period where I literally spent 18 hours a day every single day of the week. That's how addictive it can get.)

Eventually I got over it, and went searching for things to do with my newfound time. I had forgotten about the Redesign vid, but rediscovered it. Being the stickler for details that I am, I noticed when looking through a Cliffhanger preview vid that Dmantra had mispelled a word in the brinstar lore in the vid. I found M2k2 and promptly joined, just to send him an e-mail letting him know about the error. About a month later (late July 2008), I started hacking, as evidenced by my post around that time asking how to place water and how to make my red door not be opened up by beams (at the time I thought you placed water by placing water tiles or something). I've progressed quite a lot since then...

I'm learning ASM and have progressed to the point where I can help others with basic things, especially if there's documentation on it, but I'm still constantly calling on the real experts for help understand/figuring the complicated stuff out, but I'm getting better. Soon I should have my first new item project complete. I believe I have a lot more to learn than what's under my belt, though.

The inspiration for my hack is mostly from the drawings and ideas for Super Metroid 6, which was a bunch of Super Metroid related drawings and stories my siblings and I all did back around 96-97. There's quite a lot of content there as well as other stuff through the years, and the number of ideas I have for my hack is massive. My brother has his own ideas that he adds, and when combined... Well, we're probably going to stuff every area to the brim, and then some, at least until we're out of room and can add no more.

Outside of Super Metroid, I'm also doing a little bit of stuff on Super Mario RPG. Outside of hacking, I'm an astronomer, writer, guitarist, chef, reviewer, and horse poop scooper... (One of the mentioned items is not an actual hobby)

Post by Silver Skree on Fri Apr 10, 2009 7:30 am

Hi there. I'm also a Super Metroid hacker, and have been working with SMILE for about 15 months. I know my way around the program mostly, but I have yet to really even get my feet wet (so to speak) in any ASM whatsoever.

I've been told I'm pretty good with aesthetic (although in games, DMantra has me beat like a dead horse) and level design in general. The name of the full hack I'm working on is Tierus, and I have a thread about it over on the Metroid Database Message Board (MDb MB). If interested, have a look. I probably won't be re-making the thread here since I already have one there, so I see no point. I'll just sig-link it or something.

I, too, have a YouTube channel, with about 150 videos up as of now. (Whoopie, look at me.) The majority of them are "Let's Play" videos, which, if you don't know what those are, go YouTube it and you'll find out pretty quickly. I've LPed the 3 classic Metroids (note that I did Super -> MII -> Metroid, and my voice has changed significantly since all of that. Ugh.) and am in the process of trying to get the last bits of Let's Play Super Metroid Redesign up. After that, I'll be branching off to other genres and games, like finishing Secret of Mana, which is in a frozen state as it is now.

Anyways, this seems kinda like #jzd on Forum, as it is now, AMIRITE

Hopefully we'll get some more miscellaneous people in here soon enough. I can't wait to start telling the SMILE newbies "hao 2 hax bettar"

Well, why didn't you say so before? I've actually done this very thing quite a bit in the past, and that was without Photoshop. Now, as He-Man would say, I have the POWERRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!

Just not the motivation at the moment. Maybe after I finish watching Death Note (started last night and am already on episode 14).

Also, I'd like to introduce myself. I'm uNsane, and I've been hanging around here quite a bit recently. I do mostly GBA Metroid stuff when I don't feel horribly uninspired. You can read more about me, if you want, by reading my first post in this topic.

Hello, my name is Bob. I've done a light amount of modding/hacking on various games including Metroid, Mario, Zelda, and a few others. Most of my basic knowledge, in some form, has come from Grime over the years.

Where I don't spend as much time as I used to doing any type of computer work/editing (because of work and college), I make up for by hanging around the forums, downloading peoples mods, and giving my input on various things. I'll spend most of my time just staying around to chat and make friends. :D

Welcome to the forum, Cell! 'S not much in the way of released hacks and stuff here yet, since we're only a month old, but it's great to have you. You do know we all hang out on irc.esper.net on #jzd and #metconst, right? That's mostly where the real chatting happens. :P

Hi, I'm Wingard.

I'm 14, I'm a real live computer hacker, I have never touched a ROM hacking utility in my life, and do not really plan to because I have no idea what any of them are, where to find them, or etc.

I frak people's shit up on the internet for laughs.

That is really all there is to say about me.
