    Hi there,

    You don't need to register on SRK for Heroes World casuals. You're more than welcome to just drop in and play.

    The TOSF HQ is another venue that requires pre-registration as they have limited space. You can check their thread here:
    http://shoryuken.com/f248/team-stc-presents-tosf-hq-its-here-toronto-256046/

    Hope that helps.

    Just paid the $15 today, very very good deal for regulars. My buddy(padkuma) doesn't come that often and he paid it as well though I remembered it being $20 lol!

    Also 20% off Second Cup coffee when I'm there! lol!
    Never noticed that it was the preferred coffee over Mcdonalds(just noticed how many SC cups there were tonight!).

    Hidey Hidey Hidey...if only you had a clone VLX Pro Travel Bag available but nonetheless, very very cool to have some YRSF merchandise, get some Tees!

    BTW hows the protection of the bags, are they basic or do they provide padding, plastic takes a good banging but wood cases absorbs hits.
    ·
  • omega_orochi423omega_orochi423 Joined: Posts: 1,051
    More merch is in the works, coming down the pipe for the New Year.

    These are pretty standard issue, no real padding. We can look into getting something more versatile but pricing is an issue once you start to get fancy.

    Ah nice!
    I think if you can make a EVO bag clone but higher quality(heard a lot of people say, it's really not a real stick bag because it's essentially "just a bag" with an EVO print), people will go crazy for it. Something like a white and turquoise coloured bag for YRSF represenin' colours, I'm sure a good number of the HW attendees will love one since I've noticed a good number just carry their sticks from their car to the shop.

    Hey Andy,

    Looking for someone to manage recording, editing, and uploading of whatever footage we can capture. There's been interest from a few folks already which is fantastic. I would like to make sure we go forward with what is most convenient. I'm not familiar with what method of capture/upload is the cleanest and least time consuming. In the past we've just used HD Camcorders/Digital Cams and uploaded raw to Youtube.

    Would an HD PVR be tricky to hook-up and upload from?

    Oh and I have to give huge props to Chowwun for doing an absolutely amazing (as expected) DM job on my XB360 Chun Li TE-S.

    I never had any concern leaving her Ta-Ta's in his capable hands.

    If anyone needs a DM job done super clean, quickly, and professionally I highly recommend his services.

    syn13 - can you tell me where you print your templates and how do you go about in doing so? do you just say, go to a Staples and have your PSD in a USB drive and be like "hey can you print this out for me for such a cost?"

    The Printing House @ Steeles and Woodbine did a great job for graphic prints. I had to print my Qanba art on bigger label paper(then laminated), cost was about $6 which is very good. I got my SE graphic done at Kinkos/FEDEX Office fro $5.70 but I had to do it all myself whereas the guys at TPH just asked me specifically how I wanted it printed. Being that someone that works there that has a buddy that does templates there, it was more of a reassurance.
    Something that needs to be printed on the VLX will run $25 because they can't do something that big in house and it was printed on high quality vinyl, not laminated paper.

    So yeah, just goto TPH and give them your thumb drive with the PSD files that you need to print. From what I noticed is that it's easier to have it in a .PDF file with the button templates gone so they won't have to convert it.

    Gotta do some money management, my Master Grade ReZel Command Type is available and my Alter Valkyria Chronicles Selvaria is arriving soon from my dealer in Halifax but I'm sure I'll be good for the Dual Mod for Wun. Yes, I also strongly recommend Wun Yan as a DM Specialist for all the work he did on my Qanba, everything else should be a walk in the park for him now lol!
