    It sucked that we didn't do a HDR tourney at Battle For Seattle. There will be a next time rcaido keep showing people that HDR is a good game.

    I love HDR. I was down for playing in the tournament. is your cab like not secure all the way though? Some jackass was playing me and the CP kept scooting forward
  • RisingChurchRisingChurch Bass Bass Wub Wub Wub Joined: Posts: 456
    Yeah the CP isn't secured. I think it makes it easier to pack and get to the buttons on the TV, and stick parts. Some people were pretty brutal on it though. :( Sorry about HDR tourney not happening, all of us from the Oly crew were down for it, but we decided to leave because it was getting late. Hell I just got home like 20 minutes ago myself.

    I like how in the picture you have your two giant cabs and you managed to get the top of the SSF4 setup in the shot. In mother Russia baby games must be played on girly setup.

    Yup also MK9 Noob!

    Well here's how fucked up my cab turned up after Battle of SEattle, i'll probably just bring my atomiswave next time...

    The control panel also doesn't hold down anymore, there was some serious mashing going on :sad:
  • ShotgunSteveShotgunSteve Goes by Henners Joined: Posts: 575
    ouch dude! D: That's horrible.

    when I played, there was one guy...I had to sit with on leg across the other, so that my knee would hold my side of the CP in since he was like using the fucking joystick like a gear shift.
  • Lord_RaptorLord_Raptor Joined: Posts: 8,809
    Yeah had to yell at some dude and his girlfriend when they were playing HDR and just mashing the hell out of the sticks. Same dude who was mashing the hell out of them when he played MvC2.
    Are you right? Are you READY!?

    Dude in green on Sunday? GF was blonde? I think he had a hat?
  • Lord_RaptorLord_Raptor Joined: Posts: 8,809
    Yeah, dude also got hella pissed and banged the cab a little when he got worked in Marvel
    Are you right? Are you READY!?

    I would also have been down for a side tourney. Thanks for bringing the cab, I'm sorry it got mistreated.
    It was cool to see you there. You look just like your avatar. Nice Gief.
  • AE8621AE8621 I Fight for Eliza Joined: Posts: 257
    No...:( Why do some players mash so hard on arcade cabs to get a move out. If you practice you can get good at being gentle with the movements so that you don't have to mash so hard, damn it might make you a better player if you practice on that. Also the buttons on the cab are sandwa so they don't need to be press so hard one light tap is all it takes. I hope you can get the cab back in good shape rcaido. DAMN MASHERS

    Alright, just so everyone knows, Mother Russia is NOT open this Friday. I made plans with the asian wife, so dont be dropping by after the Play Live tournament...I rescheduled it for next Friday June 10th. Good luck in the tournament & remember to get those contact numbers.

    Me playing you in HDR is like you playing me in SF4. I'll give you a 3 match handi-cap too. I don't know how you get satisfaction in trying to be competitive in a game no longer at evo. Also, at least some of the ST players actually play SF4 and or are PUMPED for AE. That ones who don't play SF4 reluctantly play David Sirlin Fighter 2 because well, its better than nothing.....maybe?

    I dont need to have it at Evo for me to continue my perfection...I get my competitive play by playing people who are still dedicated to the game i enjoy learning/playing...I dont want to waste my time to learn a game i dont care for...Its not just SFIV, i dont care for Marvel 3 either or any other new game that has come out so far...As for ST, im still not a big fan of it but its growing on me. Its still SF2 after all...
  • BokkinBokkin Have gun Will shoot Joined: Posts: 2,135
    I don't play ST but damn, even I enjoy watching it. How can someone enjoy the SF2 series and not like ST. MvC3 is not an everybody game, I can see why people don't like playing, lots of cheap stuff. I still don't get the hate for SF4. AE I might understand since it's kind of a have a dive kick or GTFO game but Super was genuinely a beautifully balanced and footsie/strategically fun game.

    I don't how you get your competitive play from a secluded region with same 5-10 players. Who doesn't want to play the best in the world? Evo.

    A few things:

    1) There are people who enjoy fighters primarily for the competition. I used to definitely be one of these...if I couldn't play with others and try to improve, I didn't see the point. I would say on the other side of the same coin, there are people who genuinely love the games. For example, I play oldass Fatal Fury Special, and I don't care how old it is and if it has competition or not, I am down to play it whenever and wherever because I think it's great.

    So ST is the longest lived tournament fighting game ever, and the only reasons it has stood that test of time is because a) People think it's really good and it doesn't matter what new games come out, and b) People are attracted to the competition ST brings.

    So I cannot blame him for liking HDR just because it's not at Evo... I play ST and it's only just recently announced as a side tourney for evo...but I don't care, as long as I can get people to play with me, I will always play ST because I love the game and IMO it is the best.

    Secondly, you guys are not going to be able to prove anything because there's about a 90% chance you can't beat him at HDR Carlos, and there's absolutely a 100% chance he can't beat you at any SFIV. So I think you guys should stop with the money match thing, there is nothing to be proved there. I think you guys are both at least semi decent human beings, so you should either powow with a beer and learn to get along, or just ignore each other, one of those.

    I grew up playing SF2 Hyper Fighting at the arcades & SNES....I didn't like how they added supers & stuff, turned me off into fighting games...I stop playing fighting games for almost a decade until XBL brought out Hyper Fighting, once Hyper Fighting died out, i slowly went to HDR...I've been hooked since, i tried getting into ST but the matchups are just too lopsided to my taste, especially since I main Gief who loses to pretty much all of his matchups.
    Yes ST is fun to watch but frustrating for bottom tier characters to play. I mean ST was practically the main show in Battle of Seattle.
    As for SFIV, matches are just way too slow for me....SSFIV helped a lot but still dont like the game.

    Sorry Julian, its 100% he cant beat me in HDR in 7 game set & yeah im pretty sure i cant beat him SFIV either. That's why i did this to prove a point when he challenge me to a money match in SFIV.

    You really need to see me play HDR, im just in another level compared to my ST Gief. But im slowling improving my ST Gief, next time you see it ill level up even more...The 1st time i played you ST my muscle memory was way off & then Battle Seattle i probably only got about 2 sessions of training. Once i get my setup going in Mother Russia i can be crown king Gief in the Northwest!

    Oh & last i dont mind the online drama haha i live for that....

    No, I really don't. I care about HDR as much as I care about SFIV, which is zero.

    But I was telling people how much you improved at ST compared to the last time I played you at my house, the improvement was impressive, but I can only be "impressed" with how people play ST. I was super dissapointed we didn't play in the tournament!

    The logic of this seems a little weird to me. If someone was world champion at Evo in HDR and yet had never played ST, would that mean nothing about their ability to play say, Zangief? Would you learn literally nothing from watching someone like that play HDR?

    I see this mentality with ST folks a lot where it's like other games don't even exist, and people are looked down upon unless they've specifically accomplished something in ST.

    The difference between ST and SFIV is clearly immense. But it seems like it's fashionable to consider ST and HDR wildly different when they clearly are not.
    Just one example of ST fundamentalism on dontblowthis.com: "HDR is just another game with no relation to the Street Fighter II series" - riz0ne
  • julius blazejulius blaze is really airthrow Joined: Posts: 596
    Yes, Rcaido was a "baby Zangief" when we first played cus he couldn't SPD on the real game, but he's since practiced and graduated to a legit zangief.

    And I do think plenty of other real games exist, I just think HDR is inferior to ST so I don't value HDR play. I play tons of other fighters than ST, ST is just my favorite. I really don't want to devolve another HDR vs ST thread, so my bad for bringing it up.

    I want to make a trip down to Oly to play you guys when I am not running around with my head cut off like at BFS, and I will help the twins learn the Boxer matchup too. Do you have an ST setup Ryan? My car is in crap shape right now though.

    How different is the dreamcast port of ST from the original arcade port? I think that's what we usually play since the Showcase cab has been down. I don't know if he has an ST board or not, he might though ( I want to say yes). You should definitely come down though! Mo' ST mo' betta.
  • rcaidorcaido Dynamic Bayside Duo Joined: Posts: 8,273
    My ST setup was in that Showcase cab but i've been to busy & also a bit lazy in getting that monitor info sent out to those sites you sent me.

    But as of right now, i took out Dreamcast setup(Atomiswave) & currently is now only for arcade use. The only problem is that i dont have a CPS2 kick harness at the moment. I ordered from Jamma Boards but they haven't sent it out yet since last week...So yeah we have an arcade ST but only punch buttons haha...Hopefully those bitches will have it by Friday...

    Church- I was told that the DC was suppose to be Arcade perfect but i think there is a slight lag in the execution. Also the speed seem a bit off to me after trying to play it after Battle of Seattle.

    Also notice how awesome HDR is in actual CRT arcade monitor & not that Vewlix cab i have currently. It flows so much better like the arcade ST board i have. You guys be the judge of that this Friday...
  • julius blazejulius blaze is really airthrow Joined: Posts: 596
    Did you set up the dipswitches for DC ST? The speed is fine, there are a few stupid minor changes but it's basically arcade perfect.

    I can make you a kick harness I have tons of connectors.

    Yeah if you could that would be sweet, i would do it myself but have no idea where to buy the connector to connect to the ST board.
  • julius blazejulius blaze is really airthrow Joined: Posts: 596
    Ok I will make you one, it's a pretty obscure Japanese-made connector, I bought the last 19 they had from either mouser.com or digikey when I bought them, dunno if they are still available.
