Some things about Eric the person:
I'm a pretty giddy 151617181920 21 year old Swedish dude. I plan to eventually become a doctor. Yup.
I got done with Sweden's equivalent of high school in 2015, then I went straight to Bible School for three semesters. During those one and a half years I grew more as a person than in any other time of my life, so I'd say it was pretty good. I went as a missionary to India too, that was pretty fun.
I do like my fika and occasional Dr. Pepper.
Some hobbies I enjoy include: SNES hacking, playing videogames, watching the occasional TV or web show.
In Sweden we drink a lot whenever something happens. Doesn't really matter what; anything warrants some alcohol. Well, most of us drink. I don't (silly glorified poison, alcohol is).
My favorite band is Demon Hunter and my favorite number is 2.
I'm also a Bible-believing Christian.
Some things about Von Fahrenheit the hacker:
I got interested in ROM-hacking sometime in 2007 I believe. I played through a hack of Zelda 3 called Parallel Worlds. I got interested in SMW hacking specifically after playing The Tale of Elementia and Bowser Rampages Again. I stuck with SMW over Zelda 3 simply because Lunar Magic is miles better than Hyrule Magic. After a while I started learning this magical little thing called ASM. It's the machine code all SNES games run on and programming in it let's you do pretty much anything with a ROM that one of them good ol' developers could do. I've always liked math and ASM comes pretty easily to me. I was an ASM mod for a while but oppressing other people by saying no to submissions was too much work so I quit. Now I spend all my hacking time working on Extra Mario World with Eminus, PercentN, and Ruberjig. Our goal is to one day make it the best ROM hack of all time!
Some great quotes:
"This is extraordinary. Gotta go now because I have a massage."
--ForthRightMC, just casually commenting on Gamma V's hack
"Has it got custom music?"
--ForthRightMC, all the time dude
"I've got a power to crush wood."
--ForthRightMC, explaining what his ideal super power would be
Let that last one sink in for a bit...
"What makes a good hack/level vs. What makes a great hack/level? I know ExAnimation is one thing but what are some others?"
--Kaisaan Siddiqui, wondering how he can make Luigi's Revenge the best hack ever
"Another hack that makes me very good."
--ForthRightMC, commenting on Gamma V's recently revealed hack
LevelIntros2.0 put on hold until I feel satisfied with progress on my main project. Planned features are: auto-generated tiles to allow longer messages; levels with unique messages; support for little animations you can play before levels, maybe for humor or to show a new enemy or something; messages for GAME OVER and TIME UP.
