Starting out

omegazeroINFI first learned about SMWC by accident after watching kaizo from 900redyoshi's lp,[2] he became curious about how SMW was being edited like so, so he went around looking at comments from the videos and then started google searches looking for kaizo and then found lunar magic 1.63 lying around on google. From there, he started trying to make a hack and it was something id like to never speak of again.[3] During the production of the ruined blatentness it was, during that time, omega was using addmusic by perl.

Practice hack

After the major train wreck of a hack he left behind to never again touch for anything other then the title screen, he went on learning how to use tools like blocktool and to this day, still doesnt know how to insert anything to be used with blocktool, only the default ones. From here, he learned how to use Romi's Addmusic and inserted far more songs then he would ever have used in such a rom hack. Soon he had ecided on Mario and Luigi's Exploration, but had changed it to world so Exploration could be used in the future. In the en result, he had to quit it as is laptop died on him and is still waiting on finding out if he can recover any important files. Currently, this hack has been dropped, but can be played, by visiting his files and downloading the ips.[4]
