to the SSRG Staff Page. This little area is dedicated to
the staff members and people that helped SSRG become what
it is today. So, without further ado, here is the full
list of SSRG staff:
This page is highly out of date. Don't expect it to be updated, ever.
|Founder: Andy Wolan/ No Carrier (email@example.com)|
the original site maintainer and also the owner of the
Emulation Zone on which SSRG is hosted. In 1997 Andy
started up the SSRG with info on Sonic and Knuckles/
Sonic 3 ROM combinations, theories and all sorts of other
miscellaneous stuff. In late 1998 he offered to host
Secrets of Sonic the Hedgehog and the SSRG we all know
and love was born. Mid-1999 he redesigned the SSRG to
what it is now and then he decided to leave the SSRG
because he needed to put more effort into other aspects
of his life (and the rest of Emulation Zone), putting
Saxman in charge. Although not the maintainer anymore, he
still comes back every so often to fix up some things and
to do things for SSRG (and he still does the Sonic and
Knuckles lock-on technology ROM hacking page).
|Co-Founder Stealth (MStealthA@aol.com)|
has made tons of contributes to SSRG. He is also the
creator of excellent DOS Sonic fan games and SonED, an
editor for various Sonic games. He has always supported
SSRG from the very start and deserves his credit here.

is the creator of the famous Sonic HackingWiz Pro and the more advance SHWP-II
software programs for Windows. These programs allow a user to tweak settings

wanted to tweak, but weren't good enough with hacking.

Noted Past Staff Members
|André Dirk (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
he recently left the SSRG, André Dirk is worth
mentioning for his vast resources on Sonic secrets and
for being the first site to be hosted at SSRG. His "Secrets
of Sonic the Hedgehog" site created the big Sonic
hacking/ secrets boom with information on an early Sonic
1 (which he nicked from other sites) and his own photos
of a Sonic 2 Beta cart that his friend owned. This led to
the discovery of the Sonic 2 Beta ROM that you probably
know about and all sorts of other stuff. He also brought
us every Sonic ROM in existence, including several that
we wouldn't have otherwise known about. After opening in
October 1998 the site was quickly carted off to SSRG by
Andy Wolan. In early 2000 he left SSRG having been unable
to update regularly for about six months beforehand. His
work is still visible at SoStH but it will never be the
same without him.

residence at SSRG after having problems with SegaSonic.Net.

posted a wanted ad on the main SSRG page about a Sonic

ground-up with all the Sonic advertisements he had and
made them avalible to the public. Now LocalH helps Nayr
with the Sonic 2 Beta Hacking Guide.
