Tamkis was first introduced to Sonic Hacking and the sonic community when one day in the winter of 2006, he decided to research on wikipedia about Sonic 2 and its secrets. From there, he finally found more about HPZ, which he discovered exists in the final version by a GG/PAR code. Then from there, he found out about the former S2beta.org, where he found more about the infamous Sonic 2 beta. He occasionally visited the forums as a guest to try out some hacks of that time, such as s2Delta and Sonic 1 Remastered, which were his first hacks he tried out.
Eventually, he got bored with those forums for some unknown reason, and didn't visit the site for four years.
Four years later, he got a PSP with OFW 6.20, and hacked it with the Half-Byte Loader. Because few games would work with early versions of the HBL, he mostly played genesis roms with Picodrive. It was at this moment that his love for Sonic began to grow again, and he started to visit the present-day Sonicretro.org. One day, in November, he decided to join sonicretro and to try hacking Sonic 2. He is currently working on a hack called Sonic 2 Loco, and will be researching the objects in Chaotix for SonED2 as soon as he can get ROMulan working for Chaotix. He has contributed some minor articles in the SCHG, and he has ambitions on creating the first Sonic 2 Rom with modified special stages in his hack, Sonic 2 Loco.
