Hi, I'm EmotionCorrupts.
I first became interested in ROMHacking after discovering the sheer multitude of Pokemon hacks out there. With the amount of pre-made utilities for the Pokemon series, and the amount of dick-joke based hacks like the ones on badhacks, I falsely assumed that hacking in general was a pretty easy thing, and that it'd be a fun way for me to spend a couple of years learning more about the way software works. I quickly decided that I'd wow everyone with heavily enhanced versions of two of my favourite games: Clock Tower for the SNES, and Alisia Dragoon for the Genesis. Then I started reading the tutorials on RHDN, and that's when I really fell in love.
I have none of the knowledge you need to be a real hacker. I can convert numbers between binary, decimal, and hexadecimal, but that's about it. I don't know any programming languages, I'm clueless about how to figure out what all the code does on my own, and I'm probably going to screw up so many times it'll give me an aneurysm. But somehow, that makes it seem like to'll be even more rewarding in the end. I'm stubborn as hell, and the idea of actually fighting to learn something that I'm probably going to spend at least a year being terrible at is appealing as hell.
So, yeah. I'm hopelessly uneducated, highly unskilled, and ridiculously ambitious. Not exactly the best qualities to be a successful ROM-hacker one day, but hopefully I can one day create something good enough to be put on the site. I look forward to months of failure, frustration, being told 'lol, noob' a few dozen times, and hopefully learning something along the way, too.
