Default Lowlife to Lowlife +

wow... i'm like gonna write about how i came to be in the emulation and gaming scene... and a little about my personal life. this kind of shit is cool because there are actual people who read this and i would like any friends that i have to read it too. here goes nothing.

First off, i would like to say that I'm a proud smoker of Marijuana, ok that is done and over with. Anyways, I got into the emulation scene around 96-97 i think... i had heard about it from web surfing *my friend had a comp, and i was on it more than him* and when i found out you could play classic console gaming on your PC, i was hooked. I got sort of pissed tho, because my friends comp sucked ass and didn't run ZSNES to well. I went to this site called http://devilknight.cjb.net and i became friends with the webmaster. He was pretty kewl, taught me a lot that i know now, and i can't seem to get ahold of him. His last site was at http://emugamer.actionxtreme.com and it's not available anymore.

Anyways, after knowing him, i met others who were into emulation. I ended being a newsposter for Rush Emulation *extinct* which was a sub domain off of PE2000 *i have no idea what the site was called b4* i posted for awhile, until i wasn't able to go on the comp anymore. Anyways i left the emulations scene, but i didn't quit there. I ended up learning how to do basic ROM hacking *which hasn't improved much since then lol* and I got REALLY hooked. My first hack was Crash 'N The Boyz - Street Challenge for the NES. It featured all of my friends and stuff, and I thought it was the kewlest thing i had ever done. i didn't know anyone still tho, not as many people as i know now.

Then again i left the scene, because lack of a computer. I was like away for maybe a year? i don't know.

Then I started hacking FF1. Now i had a piece of work going. This hack made me a lot of friends LMAO!!!! it featured characters from River City Ransom *in a way, RCR heads with FF1 bodies* and was almost totally redone. I quit working on it because i got really bored of it. Don't worry all... Tzar and I have something very big planned, so stay tuned. Speaking of my FF1 hack... *it was called Quadruple Dragons btw*

Someone named Tzar ended up coming to my site *http://kabucho.20fr.com which is sort of dead, i don't update it anymore* and ended up signing my guestbook. go to the site to check out the signing. He said my hack was good and that made me feel so good lol. No one ever said anything about my work. QD made it to the ZD hacks section and i guess he saw it there. From then on, we were both staffers of the OmniPlay Gaming Network and now are co-owners of HotBlood Gaming. pretty fuckin kewl guy. One of my best friends on the net.

Then I found out about Final Fantasy Hackster. I got it and all, but for some weird reason, i ended up befriending 2 of my other best friends on the net, Disch and Y Dienyddwir Da. I don't remember how, maybe it was because i was posting at the ZD boards and contacted Disch, i think i met YDD at the OPGN boards, but i'm not sure. Disch still doesn't know why either. YDD prob does tho.

Rubicant and Tzar both liked my hack, i also kept in contact with them. I have reigned supreme at the OPGN boards to this day. Since I was a devoted persona of the OPGN, and I really wanted to be a part of the site, they ended up letting me help out with the site with me 1337 haXoring skillz or whatever. Rubes gave me my "membership" on my 18th birthday. The OPGN was my start, and I give my upmost respects to Rubes for starting me out and sending me on my way *he knows what i mean* hehe.

After some misunderstandings within the OPGN staff, the OPGN ended up breaking apart, Disch is on his own now, signed up with ZD now, zero soul is still making THE best FF1 hack ever, Tzar and I are starting up HotBlood Gaming, and Rubes is still going strong with the now newly opened OPGD Community.

I've met a lot of kewl ass people, befriended a lot of kewl ass people, and i've enjoyed every bit of it. My thanks goes out to...

Tzar - you've helped me out so much and gave me so much insight, it ain't even funny. I SWEAR!!!! that i will get that domain so that we can start up HotBlood Gaming.

Disch - you are my other best friend man, keep it real yo?

YDD - i like your schones!!!!

ZeldaDD - dude, you were my FIRST beta tester man. You are up there on my best friend lists man,

Rubes - you started me out, thank you again.

Damnit i'm sort of tired, but there are a lot of you out there who are my friends. I don't care what people say, but some of your best friends can be on the net.

OMG i just thought of some more people.

Elric - dude i forgot you man, you've been a pretty kewl mo fo. Thanks for hosting the HotBlood Forums and talking to me in dah morn. and also for putting up with my topic killing posts.

damnit i forgot more people... well shit if i missed you, you're kewl too.

This is Kabucho signing off, until then, peace out.

omg, i have Luifa & The Fortress of Doom, but i have 4 SNES's that work. I can "legally" download the ROM and keep it. My battery save thing in Lufia doesn't work anymore, so this owns! I have never thought about d/ling it either. In fact... i still haven't beat Lufia 2 yet.
