I Am For Hire!

    Welcome to the home of Michael Martin. This site is dedicated to some of the work I've created since 1999 for games and system performance. I've been gaming on a regular basis since I was 8 on Atari then to PC when I was 20. 

    I was a professional gamer for about two years in two different games. I've worked with several game developers and communities pushing forward new ideas and new standards that I am very thankful and proud to be affiliated with. My dream is still to be on a game development team to analyze, design and perfect gameplay to its fullest potential because I feel gaming has severely downgraded over time and the demand for quality gameplay is stronger than ever. I am also Tetrachromatic, which is extremely rare in males.

Thanks for stopping by!

Accomplishments

Aside from the work and statistics of the files on this website I have....
  • Competed Professionally at Two games for two years in the Eastern part of the U.S. One event being the Electronics Sports World Cup in France 2006.

  • Worked with Kevin "arQon" Blenkinsopp on CPMA / Quake 3 Promode from 1.33 to 1.38 rebuilding and polishing the product finding various amounts of adjustments that have been overlooked.
    Kevin, with his amazing work ending up being hired by id to re-program a MOUNTAIN of tiny changes and fundamentals to make the game feel incredible. long live quake 4 max! never forget!
    But I am listed in the last part of the credits under Special Thanks because I had no specific title on the team.
  • Co-Created the CPMA Hud system acting as an end user pushing the system to its fullest potential to suit every clients need.
    Also managed to have a few of my mods / ideas end up in QuakeLive such as cg_lightningstyle 4 & ESDF to walk due to the natural alignment of typing fingers(also in CPMA), I havent looked at quakelive's files to locate my name.
  • 100% GTA:Vice City 3 times without cheats or books and had to purchase the system each time to play only that game. Laugh all you want I'm proud of that shit, yknow that game was awesome.
