I first got started with X-Men Legends 1, being a huge X-Men fan I was in love with it! Me and my cousins would play it constantly, until we got stuck on the mission where Jean has to hold the ship together and you are on a time limit. I soon gave up on it, and eventually found out about X-Men Legends 2. I was so excited that I bought it right away and beat it incredibly fast. Sometime later when I was really sick and had nothing else to do I started X-Men Legends over by myself and beat it the same day. I still hate that final mission with Mastermold.
Then I found out about Marvel Ultimate Alliance, I first owned it on the Ps2, then on my Xbox 360. I soon like a-lot of other people was watching videos on youtube and found one called X-Men Legends 3 that was Marvel Ultimate alliance with a ton of X-Men mods in. I think I died inside with how excited I was. I soon found my way here and joined. Like a-lot of newbies to the fourm I was annoying. I posted the short posts, asked questions, complained, and used all of the icons
I could possible in any given post. I soon rushed to the mall, and then into gamestop and purchased Marvel Ultimate Alliance for the PC just for the mods. When I got home I downloaded a ton of mods and just took the zip file and placed it into the MUA folder. I had never modded before and I had no idea what a zip file was nor how to open it. i got so upset that I couldn't get anything working that I actually returned my MUA PC game and gave up.
Soon enough I started modding Resident Evil 5, although that took a lot of time to figure out, and this helped me figure out what a zip was and everything. I soon repurchased MUA installed it and downloaded the OC pack, and Dazzler since she didn't need to be edited in. I was so excited that I just had to figure out how to add more people. I first tried to figure out Heroselect, never got it working, and even to this very day I still have no idea how to work it. I found XMLB and tried editing the herostat. I came across a lot of problems and didn't really know what I was doing, but I soon got the hang of it and looked back at all the problems I had before and couldn't believe I couldn't figure it out before. Soon enough every character in my game was replaced by a mod.
As time went on I soon tried to skin, I couldn't for the life of me figure it out and i had everyone helping me. Eventually over Summer vacation I tried my hand at it again and I figured it out, I cranked out so many skins in a matter of days that it wasn't even funny, but then sadly I got burnt out on making skins, and then tried my hand at modding, which took time to figure out but everyone was so nice to help out on here.
I have now been here for a little over 3 years now and went from the low level poster to and invincible member. Then I got promoted to a Marvel Modder which I nearly died by the way being as excited as I was, and now I have been upgraded to Moderator. I couldn't ever find nor think of any other place or community that I would rather be, because nobody is as nice on other fourms as everyone is here. The thing I love about this place is everyone on Marvel Mods will bend over backwards trying to help someone. And besides being a modding community, we are all very social, we get to know each other, and we become great friends with each other.
It is hard to say I wish for something on this site to be different because being here so long, you just get to know the site and the layout and it may not be to fancy and all, but it is like home, and I don't think I would have it any other way then how it is now!
