From Sonic Retro

<forumuser name="Clownacy" /> Clownacy (sometimes mistaken as Clownancy) is a Tech Member of Sonic Retro who joined early in July of 2013, after lurking for some years.


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.
