"BetaZeldaman started hacking in May 2007, when he joined the Zelda Coalition, an Ocarina of Time hacking site. In June, BZM discoveed sites such as Sonic Cult and S2Beta.com. He found a Sonic the Hedgehog editing program, called SonED, which he stopped using and started using Esrael Sonic Editor II. He worked on a hack based around Ocarina Of Time, but gave up due to the difficulty of porting graphics from Sonic 1. He discovered SMW Central while watching a video by Megaman765 about ExGFX."
