Questionnaire

Emerald Nova: What names are you known by in the Sega Xtreme and Sega Homebrew community?

Knight 0f Dragon: Knight 0f Dragon.

Emerald Nova: When did you come into the Sega Xtreme and Sega Homebrew community?

Knight 0f Dragon: Joined in 2004. Lurked prior to that.

Emerald Nova: How did you find the community?

Knight 0f Dragon: One of the many search engines of the time, could have been Alta Vista or Yahoo.

Emerald Nova: What projects you have contributed to in some form? Who did you work with on these projects?

Knight 0f Dragon: I am most notably known for starting and developing the tools behind the Shining Force 3 translation. With the help of legalize freedom! over at shiningforcecentral.com taking over management duties on handling the actual text in the translation, it left me free to spend more time working on the tools.

I have also started the Symphony of the Night translation project, which has been pretty much a solo effort outside of the help of many of the folks over at SegaXtreme to discuss technical issues or ways to attack the code.

Emerald Nova: Is there anyone you think is in danger of being forgotten or lost to time that made contributions to the community?

Knight 0f Dragon: We are all in danger of being forgotten, we tinker around with systems that will eventually be known via emulation only, or not being touched at all because a device that requires the use of your hands is like a babies toy.

Emerald Nova: Is there anything else you could think of that should make it into the Saturn Homebrew history pages?

Knight 0f Dragon: Coffee, cocaine, anything consumed by developers that caused them to work 24+ hours straight trying to understand the mess that was Saturn development. Maybe also a history of tools used and a timeline of their existence, because I can assure you, cracking a game 16+ years ago was a lot different. Our "best" emulator at that time was Giri Giri.

Emerald Nova: Do you have any previous history in game development or the game industry?

Knight 0f Dragon: No. I work in business application development to be paid, and I tinker with homebrew and game cracking to have fun.

Emerald Nova: Thank you for your time!
