Cheers to liking Goldschlager my friend.  I don't come across to many other people who like it. :)

Hi, Im Snatcher. I've been into the Emulation/ROM seen for about 4 years now. Im 25 yrs. old, so I guess you can call me an old-schooler. Grow up playing the SNES and is still my favorite system. ;D

I have an Associates Degree in Graphic Design, which Im not using at the moment. There's really not many Graphic Design jobs were I live. Im into Anime, big fan of Ghost in the Shell and Akira.

I've been really interested in ROM translations, Mostly RPG's. I used to check Donut everyday to see if anything new was being released. Im glad to see that I have a new place to call home. :D

In case you're too lazy to look left, I'm Vague Rant. I'm from Melbourne, Australia, and at present I'm 19. I don't do anything useful in the ROM hacking scene (or at all, really), I just hang about and watch the people doing all the hard work.

I guess I was first introduced to emulation with Pokémon. A friend gave me no$gmb and Green Version. I'm primarily into SNES emulation (isn't everyone?), largely so I can play the stuff we missed out on over here ("I'm sorry, did you say 'arr-pee-gee'?") like all Square's stuff and EarthBound, which happens to be one of my favorite games.

My favorite bands are the Beach Boys, the Beatles, Blur, and Simon and Garfunkel. Favorite books are Nineteen Eighty-Four. Dorian Gray and Catch-22.

I'm tired of typing stuff, I might edit more in later.
I've got nothing to say, but it's OK.

Goldschlager is quite nice too, but I've only tried that a few times.

Oh shit, I have a friend who won't stop talking about how much he loves Goldschlager.  I've never had it before.  What does it taste like?

I myself am partial to Bacardi.  Southern Comfort is nice, too.

Ah well! My name Bongo`, Stealth, Barret or whatever you wanna cal me. I have been a fan of emulation since 1998 but a ROMhacker since 1999. I don't have many projects under my belt but I have had my hand in a few projects. I can only claim Doraemon, Fuzzical Fighter, Gulliver Boy, and JustBreed as my own 100% completed projects.

  I am a *gasp* 29 year old black guy born in Nassau, Bahamas but raised in West Palm Beach, fl. I love this place because I enjoy the weather, the money I make, and the women. I have been in school now for about 10 years ( no kidding ). I am TRYING to get a degree as a software engineer. I also hate this place because it is so expensive to live here, a lot of my friends have died from gun deaths and such, and these stupid hurricanes!

  I work as an UNLICENSED electrician and I get paid like a day-to-day laborer. But I survive. Anyway... I still do enjoy a good challenge when t comes to ROMhacking but not so much that I am up at 3 a.m. eating twinkies and drinking mountain dew. I have written a few utils in my time. My favorite so far is WindHex which is a hex-editor / tile-editor for Windows.

  I recently left the scene as a hacker and have become more of a spectator. I enjoy my time away from this computer. It allows me to hit the gym hard. I also enjoy watching the Miami DOLPHINS and the Miami HEAT. Well, that's all I guess there is that I wish to share! Have a great day people. Oh yeah, what's up, NightCrawler! Keep up the good work, bro!

Holy Crap! :o Look who crawled out from the closet to say hello! :P

Welcome to the board.

This makes me feel pretty good.  My site and aggressive drive toward assembling a community has drawn a few people we haven't heard from publically in awhile. ;)

Who's next?

I'm Liana, and I'm a 24-year old leasing agent and student. I'm working on my master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language, and also studying Spanish. I love reading, playing video games, cooking and learning new things. Most recently I've been playing Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Paper Mario 2, and I'm also fond of firing up the emulator and dabbling in random Japanese SNES RPGs.

As far as the scene goes I'm more on the translation-geek side of things. I've taken three years of formal Japanese classes and have done a lot of studying and reading on my own, so I'm not fluent yet, nor am I particularly fast, but I enjoy it and I'm stubborn. I've been working with Nightcrawler on Tenshi no Uta, and I've gone through the game twice -- once to translate, then again to edit. A third runthrough is starting to look appealing, because I'm obsessive. In any case it may be some time until Nightcrawler gets time to work on it, but I'm patient :) If you're interested in Tenshi no Uta, I wrote a little bit about it for my rarely-updated weblog at http://joechip.net/words/index.php?id=43.

I only tend to post when I have something to say, if I'm dead sure I'm correct about what I'm saying and if I feel it's useful. In other words, I tend to lurk ;)

Ah, SoCo. I used to love that shit.

I drank about 3/4 of a liter of that after a particualrly tough breakup once (right after I turned 21--damn! that was 6 years ago!!)... and yeah, I haven't been able to drink it since. That's one of those drinks you can't tolerate after getting sick from it.

Mine was Capt. Morrigan's Spiced Rum... even the smell puts me off nowadays, and that was about 10 years ago now.

Edit: I should say, the smell of ANY rum, not just the Capt.

Hi, I'm disroyal, a 22 year old programmer from Sweden.

I've bin lurking around "the Scene" since 98.

I worked on a english to swedish FFV translation years ago and asked some questions about FFV's pointer sytem on the old RPG dimension board, that was the last time I crawled out of my shell and said something public, we'll see if I can do better this time around=)

Aeris130, 20 years old. Swedish romhacker/translator. Is blissfully grateful for the fact that he can translate games from english to swedish while avoiding asian tounge.

I've studied some japanese though, and once spent 4 month translating "Chibi Maruko Chan" (Snes) from Japanese to Swedish (it turned out rather crappy to be honest, much because of the fact that I hadn't learned about pointers or DTE by then). Only to find out that the menus were compressed, so I had to release a rather unfinished translation (but hey, I learn form my mistakes :P).

I've been an active member of the scene (not the community) for about 3 years (at least I think it was), being geared more towards translations rather then hacking. Can't say for how long I've been playing videogames, but I was young and there was duckhunt, SMB3 and battletank. That's about all I can remember.

Nowadays, I usually play Saturn games, with the hopes of sometime in the future make a tiny Saturn-based translation (as in, not Sakura Taisen or any of the likes). Honestly, that console is by itself reason enough to hack roms. Sadly, it would seem that its massive collection of untranslated games is rivalled only by the complicity involved inhacking them. Sight...

I don't really have a lot to say, so usually I just keep quiet. And that's about it.

You poor bastid.
One night, me and a couple friends had a large bottle and a half of ouzo between us. None of us can remember everything that happened that night, but apparently we had a damn good time and were threatened with being kicked out of our hall of residence. I was sick as a dog, right in the sink in my room. I went to bed without realising that the sink actually got clogged, and awoke to a nasty surprise: a sink full to the brim with vomit. The smell of vomit didn't leave my room for a few days.

I can hardly keep down any aniseed drink now, be it ouzo, sambuca or absinthe. It's getting better though, mostly due to my insensitive friends who keep ordering rounds of sambuca shots.

I'm actually glad to be rid of ouzo though, the only value it really had to me was its special party trick. Mix ouzo (a clear liquid) with water (another clear liquid) and hey presto! You suddenly have a milky-white liquid.

I know how to do that without ouzo (or water, for that matter).

Hmm good to see a lot of non-hacking/translating people are joining the boards.

Alright, where should I start?  I've been into just the emulation side of things since about 1998 when I would run Pokemon Red on a 33MHz windows 3.1 machine with No$GBC (which is a marvelous emulator).  My venture into translating began with Pokemon Gold in 1999 (I know, lame!  But I still love Pokemon) and I've been on and off with it ever since.  My biggest project that I've tried to complete is Black Matrix Zero for Gameboy Advance and that has been off and on as well, finally with the most recent turn of events of me losing all the work I had done on it and wanting to restart from scratch.

Now a little about my personal life.  I am 19 years old and have already dropped out of college (hahaH).  I currently am employed at Insight Communications as tech support (it's an alright gig).  Pretty much all I do is hang out with friends or stay at home.  I do play WoW if any of you guys do (set up a possible new romhacking guild on a server?).  One of my main interests is music in which I have a very wide taste; I would have to say my favorite genre is probably psychobilly with my favorite band being Tiger Army (not really psychobilly in my opinion though).  I always try and learn assembly but don't really succeed, the furthest I have gone is to grasp the idea of some z80 for GBC.

So that seems to be about it I guess, any questions are welcome ^_^  And it feels good to see that the romhacking/translating community is coming back.  And if there is anything I can do to help this new community just drop me a line.

Lemme see how I'm gonna do this...

My name is Victor A. I live in Corona Queens New York, I'm 30 years old who grew up playing games in the 1980's. I'm also into emulation, cartooning, reading, working out, and I also ROM hack. I own a rottweiler named Cyprus and I also own two turtles. I got into emulation around 1998 (I have lotsa ROMS from the Nes to Neo Geo and arcades) and got into ROM hacking in the summer of 2003, I made alotta friends online in the scene when I joined TEK Hacks in March of 2004.

Right now I'm working on a few projects that'll keep me busy. I guess, that's about it...see you peeps around.  ;)
