Being an administrator and the official Root Bear of GSHI, what would you say made GSHI unique when you first joined?

Its smaller userbase and collection of great psx hackers.


Ace:
What would you say has been your most well-known, or most impressive accomplishment in the hacking scene?

DarkSerge:
Finding half of the enable code for zelda majora's mask. Before then the game was unhackable.


Ace:
What do you think the earliest thing you did hacking wise was?

DarkSerge:
I did some stuff snes hacking wise. I hacked a bunch of different snes games, mostly platformers like the megaman x games and a few rpgs.  What all codes did I make? I only remember a few codes I've made, like enable z saber power up for Megman X3...


Ace:
Who or what were your early influences in the hacking scene? As well as who did you look up to at the time?

DarkSerge: 
KingEdgar0 and Arcane Darkness. They taught me alot of stuff that helped me become a better hacker myself.


Ace:
What's the most difficult administrative decision you've made while at GSHI?

DarkSerge:
Don't think I've ever done a administrative decision on gshi that I can think of


Ace:
What's your motivation for code hacking?

DarkSerge:
To hack something that normally you couldn't access/do in the game. 
I never liked hacking the basic stuff.


Ace:
What's your favorite code and/or hack?

DarkSerge:
Moon Jump code for Majora's Mask.


Ace:
What would you say is your favorite type of code to hack?

DarkSerge:
Debug codes.


Ace:
What would you say is the most difficult kind of code to hack?

DarkSerge:
Anything that involves asm hacks.


Ace:
Of the games you've hacked what was the most fun to hack, and why?

DarkSerge:
Final Fantasy 9, because this is one of those challenging games to hack do to adress changes in game for the most part


Ace:
What was the most difficult, 'hair-pulling' hack you've ever accomplished?

DarkSerge:
It was when I was trying to find the enable code for Majora's Mask.


Ace:
Was there ever a code you just couldn't get to work quite correctly (something you hacked/attempted to hack)?

DarkSerge:
Alot of times. Too many to list, most of them I don't remember.


Ace:
What do you think the most annoying thing about the hacking scene is?

DarkSerge:
The newbs that come and constantly ask for codes that are allready hacked that are on the site.


Ace:
What do you think must happen for the video game hacking scene to continue to thrive?

DarkSerge:
Hope that the new systems that come out are exploitable so custom firmwares and/or homebrew cheat apps could appear on them.


Ace:
One last question: if you had one thing to say to current, aspiring, and future hackers, what would it be?

DarkSerge:
I would tell them to have fun while hacking and don't treat hacking like its a Job.
