So yeah. Hi.
I have been known for the past few years as MetroidMst. Been in the ROMHacking scene since early/mid 2009. Saw my brother hacking my favorite game, Super Metroid, and he then showed me some YouTube videos of Redesign and another hacker was born. Started off making a hack with my bro, which he named Super Metroid: Again. Got a little bit, restarted, went further, restarted again, got further and getting way better at using SMILE and restarted yet again. We built quite a ways, then a bug destroyed the hack. Deciding we needed to get better ourselves before doing our big "main hack" as it were, we started to do separate hacks. This has led to both of us becoming even more advanced at using SMILE. Helped us both really get good with building the rooms. I've learned to be competent with a HEX editor, and he has taken it farther and is doing ASM for Super Metroid. This separation of us has led to him releasing one hack, AngryFireChozo, and I just recently released So Little Time, a hack I made in a single week for a competition.
So yeah, we started going our separate ways about 3/4 into 2009. I've been working on a hack called Super Metroid: Fear since that time. I personally hated each restart we did with Again, so I have never restarted Fear, I just keep working on it and working on it, fixing errors and bugs, expanding it, building new rooms, fitting new ideas in. It is a ways off, but I can finally see the light after over 2 years. This has been fun. I used to draw maps/enemies/bosses/items for Metroid all the time. Super being my favorite game ever I always wanted to make my own 2D Metroid that would advance it further than Super. Little did I know it was actually possible to try it. So yeah, getting close to 3 years hacking Super Metroid now. I find it amusing to look back and see that first room I did. It is terrible.
So, I hack Super Metroid, I play Super Metroid hacks and often upload it to YouTube under the guise of ShyGuyExpress.
I'm probably not going to be too active over here, but I don't want to be a total stranger. You will find me more often than naught on the MetroidConstruction forums, where people put up with my stupid questions. I will probably be around every once in a while. I will definitely release hacks here too, as I want to get a broad audience to my silly creations, and I look forward to maybe watching someone make videos of my hacks on YouTube someday.
So my favorite games are:
- Super Metroid
- Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
- Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
- Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong's Quest
- The Lost Vikings 2
- Super Mario Bros 3
- Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
- Metroid Prime
- Donkey Kong Country
A lot of SNES games on that there list.
