Clownacy first became interested in Sonic hacking after being lead to Sonic Retro by YouTube videos demonstrating modifications of Sonic titles on an assembly level, discovering the SCHG 'how-to' guides not long after. In the years following, he'd eventually join Sonic Retro.
From then, he went on to create several 'how-to' guides, refine the Git disassemblies, and, later on, create an enhanced version of Sonic 1's SMPS 68k sound driver: the Sonic 2 Clone Driver v2, which was a replacement for the aged, but still commonly used, Sonic 2 Clone Driver.
He was promoted to Tech Member on 29th July 2014, just over a year after joining.
In mid-August of the same year, he produced an upgraded version of Project Sonic 1: Two-Eight, sporting a rebase to the modern Git disassembly, bug-fixes, optimisations, and restored debug features. This was uploaded to the Git repository as a branch of the Sonic 1 disassembly.
Around this time, he also joined SSRG, becoming Staff on 6th June 2016.
Clownacy remains a Tech Member on Sonic Retro and Staff on SSRG. He can occasionally be found on the #SSRG IRC channel.
