    Nice video, it makes me happy seeing you trying to develop a scene in your area.

    How is the quality of your TV? It looks pretty bad in the video, but I'm assuming that's just the camera?

    The CRTs are provided by the venue's we play at. and yeah. they're pretty crappy but not as bad as the video makes it seem. There's a blue hue and we have no idea how to change the colour settings to make it proper there's no remote, and ... menus using tv panels are awkward...

    The camera's not bad, but it's just the lighting and angle makes the TV look worse than it is...

    It's not too bad, after a few matches you get used to it and the monitor looks (pretty) normal. Except sometimes certain colours look the same.

    Hmm. After reading
    http://shoryuken.com/forum/index.php?threads/comparison-of-hdr-versions-ps3-360-dc-cps2.81717/page-4#post-6633806

    I have Dreamcast RJ-45 cables now (and I always had a total control2 PSX-> DC converter) , and SSF2X for dreamcast. A&C I'm sure has a console...
    I also have SNES RJ-45s as well as SSF2 and HF cartidges at home...

    Maybe in a few months when we have more people we can have more SF2 setups... I don't think A&C has enough CRTs though...

    edit: The real question I wanted to ask, but I lost track of when making the post was.

    How would you feel running different versions of ST side by side? (DC, CPS2)
    Obviously it wouldn't apply if I brought SSF2/HF on snes...

    I think those who want to play ST just want to play so more setups wouldn't hurt. As for HF, well I can bring my xbox setup if you want to run that (or if you want to have another ST setup, puzzle fighter or whatever old skool arcade goodness you want to run), or why not invest in an HF board as well if you want to play that? They're easier to find than ST and probably cheaper too.

    As for SSF2, running it on SNES is actually not a bad solution (it's faster than arcade version for sure), but who has 2 SF-style arcade sticks for SNES?
  • UnessentialUnessential Joined: Posts: 1,171
    Lots of people have sticks with RJ-45 ports. so as long as people bring sticks with RJ45 ports. I can bring cables to make them work with the snes. I recall last time at A&C we needed an extra stick because the one A&C provided didn't work, and nobody could press start on brett's stick. So I found a random stick with an RJ 45 port, asked if I could borrow it... (the guy was like,I don't have an extra cord and it's not a USB... , guess he didn't know I had my own cable, and wasn't using it for an xbox) I'm like, it's an RJ 45. I have my own cable. Same deal with the snes and dreamcast.

    SSF2 on the snes is faster than arcade? had no idea. still feels hella slow to me... My preference is to have another ST setup. (or puzzle fighter!). But I'll bring HF carts or SSF2 carts if other people prefer...

    As for why not buy another HF board...? I might in the future. but it would still only leave 1 supergun setup simultaneously, because I'd have a board. but no supergun (the conversion/connections to TV/controllers). So that's why I suggested SNES or another console rather than another JAMMA compatible board.

    and again, I'm just feeling it out... I don't think we have enough people for more than one setup... yet...

    well, actually... if everyone shows up for the entire night, then maybe that would justify a second ST setup...

    When UofT starts their casuals again in September I may start bringing my setup there on Saturdays as well as A&C. Saturdays work a bit better for me, so we should be able to have it more often.

    Turbo2Tone is coming home from Japan on April 30th. I'd like to plan something at my house (at least two stations with ST).

    Yeah, my final exams finish after the week of the 16th. So I can certainly come down lots then. What are you going to use for the second ST station? HDR?

    We'll talk next time at A&C.

    Great shit Unessential, keep it up man. When I get back, me and elSalvadoreno will start coming back to TO more often again for ST. Also don't worry about getting the CVS2 players back into ST, most of them sucked anyways. If you could somehow, get Gerjay back into it he was good. Kevin, you should convince roger haha.

Take those same sharks and put lasers on them with guided missiles, and propellers to make them fly and you have the most retarded idea ever made, that is new fighting games."

    This is my idea and my cave allows 8 people maximum:
    -The big TV will be used for your setup
    -The small TV will be ST on DC (I have one Innovation converter and my TE has DC however the port is extremely sensitive so it'd help if we had another DC converter)
    -I have an empty room which I will move in another CRT and that will be anything PS2 (HSF2AE, 3S, CvS2, etc...)
    -I have HDR but we would use PS3 as my 360 will not work unless connected online unless someone else brings their 360

    ps. Everytime I do these casuals, I ensure no new games will be played (SSF4AE2012, UMvC3, SFxT, etc..)

    I think I have a Total control 2 PSX->DC converter somewhere. It works. but I'm not sure if Total control 2 is lag free. I got it before I was into fighting games seriously.

    I did just get 2 dreamcast rj-45 cables, so if people bring sticks with RJ45 jacks they can use those.

    about your 360 not working online... you realize microsoft has a licence transfer so you can match it to your current console... right?

    I can bring a PS2 with Hyper AE/Alpha/Darkstalkers and my XBOX setup. If ppl want to play CVAss2 someone is gonna have to bring a PS2 copy because I don't have that dumb game.

    When you get back Chris you better show up. I have Roger on FB so I will try and convince him to drag his ass outta retirement. As for Gerjay, we'll see what I can do but we might have to have Marvel 2 on DC to bait him out.

    I downloaded a bunch of MvC2 ISOs with custom soundtracks... And I'm always looking for more too, (although I suck at that game). got any suggestions?

    If you need one, I can bring a hacked capcom fighting games collection for DC. which includes mvc2 and ST. Ikaruga is on there too oddly enough (awesome shmup) . I forgot what else is on the disk .. The interesting thing about that is that the soundtrack can be swapped between games too. (ST with Marvel 2 music is trippy)

    Oh man, this thread is awesome. I would be SO HAPPY to find people in Toronto (I live in Scarborough) to practice with!!! I'm not too big on SSF4 (nor own the game), and right now the only fighting game I'd put time into is SSF2T.. after the real one (Muay Thai). I'm willing to practice tons with good players, so anyone up for it - online or offline - please let me know.
    I think I may be the longest active hardcore KI player in history. 7+ years on Zbattle; XBAND didn't even last half as long, rofl. So many years I took up dominating in a game that I now barely even play.. WTF?!

    You should come down on the 25th!

    I finished my job interview. And my hours end at 3:30. so I won't be *that* much later than normal. My guess is that it'll take me an hour to get down there so 4:30-5:00...

    I'll try to go there this Wednesday. The thing is, I have no gamepad or arcade stick, and while I can use most pads quite well, all my fighting game mastery is on keyboard (I played Killer Instinct at a very high level with keyboard and absolutely no macros). If people don't mind letting me use their peripherals, then I could eventually adjust.

    Read the first post in the thread. I provide 1 arcade stick (just cuz i have too much crap to carry otherwise) Usually someone else brings another one. If not, I bring extra RJ-45 cables and I mooch an arcade stick from a random person who has an RJ-45 port...

    I noticed you said you're from scarborough. Could you give me a lift there and back? (I'm at danforth & victoria park) If so then I can bring two sticks and not have to worry about finding a stick at A&C.

    I switched from keyboard to arcade stick, it's not too bad... I could never play on pad though (still can't) my peference for controllers is stick>keyboard (left handed controls) > Keyboard( right handed controls) > pad.

    A&C has sticks but they all have non functioning buttons, so I can't configure the buttons properly with my converter.
    Also check the first thread for updates on what days we have ST casuals.

    I'm best with keyboard, followed by pad, and arcade stick the least. I have very little experience with arcade sticks, so I'd need time to adjust to and perfect its usage.

    Good to know. Well, I hope to make it this Wednesday and learn SSF2T from OG vets and pros. :D

    After heroes world I figured the blue tint couldn't be the TV. (just so happened that both TVs messed up the same way?)

    So I decided to plug it into my HDTV (ugh, input delay) yup. tinted blue.
    So I opened up my supergun to see if there was anything wrong. I noticed that there were three spots with joints but were empty. labeled R G and B... That's when I realized that the 3 pieces of plastic that stuck out of the supergun were colour knobs. (oddly enough, the PAL/NTSC switch which I also found is still hidden inside the supergun inaccessable unless opened)

    Also this was to make sure my video capture card worked with my supergun setup. Yup. It does. so If anyone decides to bring a laptop we can capture video that way rather than with a video camera.

    [meoutube]aWUkmSl2eQE

    Edit: Shit. my video was 5 minutes too long and got removed. DAMN that took a long time to upload too... .

    It wasn't that important to see the video anyway, I just wanted to include it so you had an idea of how the quality is.

    Youtube has a damn video editor built in. Couldn't they just clip the end rather than remove the entire video?!. What a waste of bandwith and time.

    I'll be at A&C tomorrow, but first I gotta take my Jetta to the mechanic at 8 am for some stuff. Hopefully I won't be too long.

    As for the capture card business, I have my laptop with a program called Pinnacle Studio 12. Don't know if that's what we need. I don't know anything about video capture tbh. Let me know if there's any free software I can dl and whatever else I may need too including cables and such.

    Around 3pm I get out of class. My school is right by Broadview station (yes, that crappy adult school). I really don't know where to meet up, though. Plus, I'm sure I could make it from Broadview to Spadina on TTC quite easily. Therefore, I think Unessential is more in need of a ride than I, lol... that is, unless I have my classes switched from last period to first period (morning). I am not sure if that will happen, so I will say that at least for this week I should be good without a ride. I really don't mind missioning it out via TTC, anyway.

    Are you still working during the summer?

    And if so, do you have to head back to work after showing up still? (is your d/f on your arcade stick still messed up...? brett seems to use it just fine, for me, at heroe's world it seems it always messes up on me at the worst times)
    I'm ok to get to A&C games myself. I'll just bring what I normally do. (1 stick, supergun setup, and a whole bunch of extra cables just in case). You don't have to come pick me up unless you foresee us having lots of problems finding a second arcade stick for the setup,..)

    It just seems like lots of trouble for you going from sauga, past A&C to come here, and then backtrack to A&C again.

    Yea my crazy schedule doesn't end until around june. If you guys have no problems TTCing it then it's all good.

    Yo Brett, I'm bringing my stick tomorrow, can you take a look at it?

    Darn, I might not be able to make it tomorrow; I have to run some unfortunate last minute errands. Will there be ST at every meetup in the store? I am really looking forward to playing local people for more practice, as online I can only use Supercade (in a fairly limited way - not everyone will connect) and not GGPO.

    Please be aware that May 12 is a projected date.
    Nothing is officially set in stone.
