I discovered rom hacking when i reached lavender town in fire red. I had (and still have) a large interest in lavender town, the song didn't scare me, but i loved humming it and i adored it. Until i turned 7 and devoloped the feeling called "Creepyness". One day i was on a youtube vid about the lavender town theme, and i found in the suggestions a video about pokemon choas. I watched it and thought "What is this??". After reading the comments for 5 minutes, i found out it was rom hacking, a process in which you get a gba game's guts onto your computer and play it in your gba gut player. Except with the game modified in ways that can make it a totally different. I got myself an emulator and gba fire red file. Then after moar research, i got all the programs neccecary and made rom hack.

There was a Pokemon Naranja video on the Youtube "related videos" section on another video I was watching... I decided to click it, and from then on I thought romhacks were awesome.

That was almost ten years ago, so I don't really remember.

I think the first thing I did was downloading PokeMap and GoldMap and fool around with them, but I don't know how I found out they existed. I didn't join any ROM-hacking communities until a few years later.

I was a boy about 7-8 years old and was on YouTube to look for stuff I could do on Pokemon I found a video called Pokemon: The Hack and it featured an item called Glitch Powder and I did not know what hack meant or read a description or even look at TamashiiHiroka's other hack videos. A few years later, I got my first laptop and I somehow typed in Glitch Powder without knowing and found the video again and I found the description and her videos on how to hack so I experimented and later found PC and registered to download hacking tools and stayed because back then new tools came often and I would check the forums and I fell in love with PC and found some tutorials and am now working on a hack.

Youtube..... I found out when I typed in "Pokemon" In Youtube and got to "That part" of Youtube. There were some people who hacked Pokemon games and made them tell stories and then they'd put them on Youtube like it was a T.V. Show. I eventually found out the call themselves the NGH (Next Generation Hackers) And I enjoyed watching the stories take place. The series that I remember msot fondly are the Golds Adventure Series and Pokemon Dawn of Darkness. They both contained music soundtracks from multiple games I recognize now. Among others though I also remember watch the series revolving around Doryan the water master. After I learned how they did it and found I could do it I started downloading the tools.... That eventually brought me here.

I found out about ROM hacking a long time ago. I had just gotten the first generation iPod Touch and I planned to jailbreak it so I could emulate the GBA games on it. This was back in 2007 or 2008. I was searching for a download for Emerald or Fire Red or something and I somehow stumbled across Naranja, the Orange Islands hack. I was really interested in trying to do something like that myself and eventually found myself here.
