From Sonic Retro
<forumuser name="Rabid" /> I was a new entry to the Sonic hacking community in about 2000, slowly learned the ropes and practiced palette hacking, I worked on a few minorly spread Sonic hacks such as SuperSonic 3D Blast of whom without Kojichan would never have hit off the ground and "The Rabid project" for Sonic 2, a small palette and sprite hack. On another note I also worked with Ultima to make palette corrections when porting Angel Island Zone into Sonic 2 and most of the palette work for Sonic 2 Ultima. Unfortunately I have been very absent from the communities for some years as I have no net connection of my own.
Thanks for reading, Rabid
