Various stages of the “Carbon” site design developed in 2006. The final version was used from the ZREO relaunch in December 2006 up until October 2009. Included here is a derivative (Beta 2) that was not followed for the final design.
1 – ZREO gets its first layout change! Notice that ‘Lost Woods’ was the latest entry into the ZREO music library, we had a poll asking if we should contact Nintendo about the project, and don’t miss the update about site problems. Oh the problems we had!! Interesting note: a letter to Nintendo was sent. Of course, no response.
2 – The list shows that we were 28.04% completed with our goal!
3 – An interesting look at this page reveals an FAQ about the project. The site was gaining more attention from Zelda fans, so we had to create our own FAQ page from this point on. As you can see, most obviously, the updated site logo utilizes some of the site’s background. It really was an ugly color… What were we thinking? Barf green? Anyway, the FAQ clearly shows that the project started in October 2004. It also describes the purpose of ZREO and how the songs are made.
4 – Notice anyone here? This was MoZ’s first post on the site. This post was made on April 9, 2005. He was still a senior in high school. Shortly thereafter, MoZ joined ZREO as Art Director!
5 – Jim, one of our first international visitors, saying a quick hello! This was when we knew we had a gem on our hands. It’s messages like these, during the early days, that kept us going!
You are now looking at the very first ZREO web page ever! It introduces the ZREO Project and its staff. At the time, only Dave, TheodorKrueger, Joseph_Burrell, IpsoPhatso87, and FireGS made up the ZREO Team. If you notice, this page was only a mere 4 months old. The site and project were given birth in October 30, 2004. This page was updated on February 8, 2005. It’s very rare to be able to take a look at ZREO’s origins. It’s nice to be able to see the progress we’ve made since then!
Here is the list of songs that the ZREO members hoped to finish. At this early stage in ZREO’s life, the goal was to simply reorchestrate all the tracks from Ocarina of Time.
And the list concludes. Notice the funny copyright text at the bottom!
This is the home page of LOTRMusic.com, the first music website FireGS was ever involved with. This was the site that started the love of MIDI and music.
Before MoZ joined ZREO, he did an interview on behalf of HTLOZ II to help FireGS and team!
