LMZ:
You've been infamously known for doing such codes as "Very Very Blue Skies" for Final Fantasy VII, and ice skating codes for a wide range of games...

Zane:
Yea I know, the fact this question reflects on me shows people take notice of my word. lol

To be honest I hacked these codes for fun and for the hell of it, but hacking the same stuff everyone else hacks is boring, least with the codes I made there different, not always the most important or useful, but can least be good for good laugh or two, and shows you can do more in a game then simply cheating.


LMZ:
What codes do you think you're most well known for?

Zane:
Well I'm sure other people know me for what�s listed in question number 1, but I like to be known for my better codes like WWF Warzone nude code, or steal anything from store in Zelda Links Awakening, or Final Fantasy 9 Debug menu or nude Terra code Final Fantasy 6, or my personal favorite Have full control of slot commands for Setzer to name a few.


LMZ:
What would you say is your favorite hack?

Zane:
I've hacked a few like store modifier, music modifier codes, and graphic fix code for Final Fantasy 6, what�s mention in question 3, to many codes to think of, but I proud myself on the more useful and fun codes like the sprite control code for Final Fantasy 7 demo.


LMZ:
What was your first code/hack?

Zane:
Don't know, don't care.


LMZ:
What do you think is the most difficult type of thing to hack, and why?

Zane:
Honestly debug codes, but also codes like sprint control, fmv modifier, store modifier, random battle codes, see game ending, stuff of that nature.


LMZ:
What's your favorite type of thing to hack?

Zane:
You might be shock but it's not color mods, and ice codes, and stuff like that, I like modifier codes being music mods, towns people mods, sprite mods, size mods, doing the impossible in game sort of codes.


LMZ:
What's the most annoying thing about hacking?

Zane:
The whole finding the right code thing, personally I prefer memory hacking much faster, and easier, finding a code to help find more codes, sure it's cheating, but code hacking is code hacking to me. lol


LMZ:
What do you dislike most about the scene?

Zane:
The fact they don't make hacking device like the game shark pro for say older and current day game systems, which to me is a shame and a pain at the same time in terms of hacking.


LMZ:
What games did you find the most fun to hack, and why?

Zane:
RPG games, there the hardest and most time consuming to hack but there fun because there�s always plenty of codes to find.
 

LMZ:
Have you got any special hacking techniques?

Zane:
I steal them of course!!! RRRRR, lol Nah I used to hack codes by using codes that exist to make new or better codes, over time though I started using memory of the games to make and hack codes, much faster and easier then hacking codes one by one doing searches on code device, etc.


LMZ:
Did you ever hack an awesome code, or find an address in memory that would've yielded an awesome code, but then lost it somehow?

Zane:
Yes, there�s been a few, can't recall them all because it's been awhile, but I think it was a perfect walk through walls code for a game, and I think a code for final fantasy 7 being perfect replica of Midgar, now that�s hard code to make, won't see a guide on that anywhere.


LMZ:
What were some of the most obnoxious to pull off hacks you've done?

Zane:
Sprite control code Final Fantasy 7 and 8 demo, graphic restore code for Final Fantasy 6, to name a few.


LMZ:
Was there ever a code you tried to make but couldn't get to work right?

Zane:
The bypass code for Arc Of The Lad games, work fine for Game Shark Pro users damn Game Shark CDX made it a problem in the first place.


LMZ:
Aside from hacking and gaming, how do you like to spend your time?

Zane:
I don't hack as much as I used to, but I spent time hanging with friends, dating, and doing other stuff like other people do.


LMZ:
What do you think needs to happen for the game hacking scene to continue to thrive?

Zane:
Build a better emulator. lol Nah to insure that code devices, emulators and roms, among other things continue to exist, other wise they might take it away points to the playstation 3 as proof of that, so if all possible fight for your right to hack codes.


LMZ:
...and a final question: if you had one thing to say to current, aspiring, and future hackers, what would it be?

Zane:
Don't become a pain like Chris Bain. lol

Nah seriously when hacking do it for you not for everyone else, being popular isn't what makes you a great hacker it's what you can hack and the type of codes you can hack that separates you from being like the rest of being different and being the best.

But mostly you should hack for fun and for hell of it like I do, other wise it'll feel more like work and who actually likes work, I'm sure even Lazy Bastard would agree with me as he�s reading this I'm sure. lol
