Real Life Stuff
HeX9109 was born and raised in the Victoria, Texas area and has lived in the same house since being brought home from the hospital as a little baby boi. He played a few sports in his early school years and was placed in advanced classes despite being a little, loud hellraiser. In Jr. High he joined band and stayed in it until high school graduation. He currently attends a local community college despite not being inspired to further his education. He works as a Service manager at a Texas-only Grocery Store chain.
HeX9109's dad bought a 100MHz Pentium Packard Bell PC the same day Windows 95 came out for roughly $3100. It was a piece of shit. However one day after playing Spiderman Movie Maker, HeX9109's dad plopped in a CD that had several shareware games. HeX9109, his brother, and his father were introduced to Wolfenstein 3D shareware. They played that for about a month before getting Doom 2 1.666 from HeX9109's dad's boss at work. They played it in I'm Too Young To Die from beginning to end without cheating and with no sound due to their dumb asses not knowing how to configure Sound Blaster at the time. Soon after beating the game, HeX9109's brother obtained The Ultimate Doom from the local KB Toys, and HeX9109 got Final Doom for Christmas shortly after its release. He was 6 years old.
HeX9109 also obtained Doom64 in 1997 and played Doom occasionally over the years, however, he had mostly forgotten about Doom until 2003 when he and his brother both obtained copies of GBA Doom 2. They played co-op on GBA for several hours, until they got fed up with the finicky controls and investigated playing with connected computers. They found out about the NULL CABLE connection and linked their two Windows 98 machines together and played Final Doom on PC together. With the research they found, they also discovered a concept called the "pwad," and ZDoom. The first pwad HeX9109 ever played was TeamTNT's Eternal Doom III.
In 2005, HeX9109 started searching how to play Doom online. He found Doomworld's source port page, and on it three choices: ZDaemon, Skulltag, and CSDoom. He knew based on research that ZDaemon was the most popular, but when reading about ZDaemon having accounts HeX9109 assumed credit card information would be required with it. He downloaded Skulltag and played it offline with bots. He never joined a game until 2006 as "Flump." While learning how to play Skulltag over a 56k connection, HeX9109 met ShinobiXtreme, leader of SNS6. Despite being a nublet Shin liked HeX9109 and let him join his fresh new clan. Within a month "Flump" had changed his name to "Vulture" and was promoted co-leader. He also befriended a player named Dread, who HeX9109 had truly considered his first real friend in the Doom community. HeX9109 stayed in SNS6 for several months aliasing around as KageXtreme as well as Vulture, and eventually joined #skulltag.
With 56k, HeX9109 was limited to how he could actually play Doom. He never took competition seriously because he could never get the aiming down very well. On December 22, 2006, Skulltag 97b was released. This marked the first time HeX9109 had experienced Unidoom, a legendary clan full of the best doomers in the world. An peculiar player named [UD]DD_133 had joined a dwango5 duel server HeX9109 happened to be idling in. After a few rounds, HeX9109 queued next in line to duel this member of UD also on 56k, and lost a whopping 10 - 6.
Through the next few years HeX9109 managed to join a few clans.
Thanks to obtaining Cable internet in 2007, his skill grew and was starting to be noticed. He aliased around as "HeX" to grow a new identity as a great player, instead of the kid that sucked due to his 56k connection.
HeX9109 was invited to join LF by Tenchu some time in 2007, a clan he wanted to be in because his fellow friends, Kabal and Mastan, were in it. Meanwhile, in #skulltag, drama was ensuing. Carnevil had left Skulltag and Metalhead, who HeX9109 had started to befriend, needed IRC cops. This was when HeX9109 had officially become a member of Skulltag staff. While being in the staff, HeX9109 was successfully promoted to tourney admin along with friend Tenchu, and they were both upgraded to global moderators a few weeks later despite not doing shit with tournaments. HeX9109 (by this time known as HeX_Vulture to have a name unique to a google search) was clanless in late 2007 due to LF disbanding, and was invited into RB by Metalhead. The clan dominated Skulltag in the late 2007/early 2008 era, thanks to Unidoom ignoring the port in its 97 era. While in RB, HeX9109 spent most of his time administrating the Skulltag forums and testing beta versions of Skulltag with fellow clan member, ClonedPickle. Additionally in late 2007 HeX9109 started hanging out in #unidoom, and was starting to be noticed by Ralphis as being relatively awesome despite being in RB. He was even invited to help test the almost-ready UDMX until its release on December 31, 2008. HeX9109 was credited thanks in UDMX's text file, and in 2009 HeX9109 was officially invited to UD by Ralphis.
