    @HaruhiFTW WTF?! That's really weird.

    I think Spidertao did it once, I'll ask him on FB.

    @Hq32oL I'll get at you.

    from Tao:

    LOL I never had an account in Canada. I created my Live account in Korea.



    You may not be able to migrate it, but I'll do some searching on the issue. If you can't, you may just have to make a new one. That may screw with your DLC though.

    it might have something to do with that new law they past last november; you have to be over 18 to use xbl past 9pm or whatever. They must want you to make a new account using and i-pin to verify the age... I am not sure if ARC card numbers work... I am trying to figure it out.

    So... I am have been tinkering with the xbox live account thing. You CAN NOT migrate an account to Korea. You must create the account under the korean xbox live site. From there you have to confirm your age. To do this you have to have an I-Pin ID... I am trying to get an I-pin ID but it keeps telling me the password I want to choose is invalid... so I am stuck...

    Why are you trying to merge accounts and why can't you just use the account you already have? That's what I'm doing on Xbox, only thing different I did was change the locale in settings
    I blame... the new generation for wanting things to be easy :annoy:
    I'm that Spider-man guy... or better yet, just call me Z
    If you don't like change you'll like irrelevance even less.

    Because I can't pay for XBL if I have it set to USA region.

    Even through xbox.com? That's where I go to pay for everything when I run into those issues. Not sure if you tried that or not just trying to help

    That's Haruhi's snafu, he said his credit card expired, so even if it did work on Xbox.com, he couldn't because there's no credit card on file.

    Went to Technomart today and it was actually a lot closer than I thought thx to MP's directions. About a 30 minute walk. Unfortunately the place was just dead and there was only a tiny little space that sold games, extremely disappointing. No PS3's at all but had 2 sticks. A Joytron and another Korean brand. Both pretty shitty compared to my MadCatz but got the Joytron for 36,000.

    Now it's time to download AE for pc but does it matter where I get it from? Amazon or Steam or somewhere else? I don't even know anything about Steam so any help would be appreciated guys. I just hope the stick works and isn't a total piece of shit.

    Decided to get it on Steam with my credit card but couldn't purchase it. Tried multiple times but it wouldn't let me. I know it's because I'm in Korea and my billing address is in America. Waiting on a reply from support now. Can't believe it takes this much bullshit to simply play SF online here. Fuck I miss home.

    Depending on the Joytron, you can mod it. 36,000 isn't too bad for a Joytron. I think they accept Sanwa buttons. Granted, you'll have to adjust to the Korean sticks, but I'd get a Myoungshin from etokki and swap that in. Much better feel.

    Depending on your mains, you won't feel too much of a strain adjusting though IMO. The one that'll get you for a bit is downbacking. First time I played in Korea, I was so fraudulent on that stick, nothing came out right, I was literally toning back my playstyle just because I couldn't execute for the first few hours. After a while, i was able to execute better.

    I actually miss my K-stick.

    I vote when you go back home for your sabbatical, bring back your PS3 and stick, for sure. It's hard, yes, but I think you can manage it.

    Well decided to download the game from Amazon since Steam wouldn't let me after trying over and over again. Damn, this stick is a total piece of shit. When I first tried it I thought it was broken cause the joystick was so damn loose. Went into training mode and couldn't do dash 720's at all and struggled with certain combos that are normally second nature but it felt so good to just play the game again. Buttons are ass too but guess you get what you pay for so no surprises.

    Guys, so now I have another issue. I need to open some ports on my router but I have no idea what type or brand I have. Tried to jump online for a quick game or two and it was just horrible. Couldn't get a single game from my region for some reason and every connection I did see was red. On the bottom of the router it says G-PON GNT-2000. I tried googling for any info and nothing. I hope I didn't go through all this to have my router screw me from playing online. Any help would be appreciated.

    Did you check out the joytron that I told you about on gmarket?
    If you bought the game for PC good luck... there isn't very much of an online community for this region on PC. Like a mentioned before best bet would have been to find an xbox.
    Go to BenchBee and check your internet connection. Also make sure that your region is set to Japan. If not try to log in into the router. Usually default address is something like 192.168.0.1
    Also you might want to try and find things around Korea you can enjoy like the other things I have mentioned. If you hate Korea just because you can't play SF then I don't know what to tell you... I mean I realize you mentioned other issues, but its hard for me to want to help out if you don't take any advice and then just sit and complain about Korea.
    Not to be harsh but...
  • scratchbackscratchback Joined: Posts: 1,043
    Bro, my situation here is pretty complicated. Never said I hated Korea just because I can't play SF, come on that's retarded. There have been many issues I've had here but there's no need to get into that stuff here. Yes, I checked out gmarket and a stick and a console is just not possible with my situation here so that's why I got the pc version, way cheaper overall. Of course I would've preferred an Xbox or Ps3 but it's just not possible now.

    After hours and hours of trying to tweak the router I finally figured some stuff out. Been playing the game for a few days now and it was nearly impossible finding a green bar. All were red and saw only one Korean player and the connection was actually decent. Played him twice, won both and he proceeds to kick me every time after that. Reminded me of what happens back home on psn sadly. Funny you should mention changing my region to Japan. After a couple days of not being able to connect to anybody I just about gave up hope then I changed my region to Japan and all of a sudden it was a complete 180. Connections are better, way less lag, and more players to play. Even had a set with Ink7's Hawk last night. Seems that Korea has almost zero AE pc players.

    Most Korean players play with the Japanese region set that's why there aren't many korean flags next to the players names.

    Yeah, I don't think in my time playing online, I've seen many other flags besides Japanese. I think on rare occasion I see Hong Kong flags, but pretty much everybody in the region changes their locale to Japan.

    Same here, all Japanese flags so far. Think I've seen one Korean and that's it. I've only been playing a few days now but the overall talent level is so much higher then back home on psn. Back home it was just random scrub after random scrub but here everyone seems solid or at least knows what they're doing. Even the weaker players don't do the stupid shit american players do back home. I don't know, it's just been my experience so far.

    Yeah, it's the same on Live in Asia too. You can mash your way into win, and can't assume everyone's doing the same scrub crap. I remember having to get more used to the footsies game than in America over here. Plus connections are better, so overall, online is a much better and more acceptable form of practice than in America.

    Hello everyone. I will be at Kunsan AB in a few more days. Currently at LAX.

    Anyone near or around that place right now? I mainly play AE but I'd love to know if there are any nearby arcades. I love music games.

    Something interesting happened a week or two ago. When I first got here and tried to watch tv I just found it unbearable. Obviously the language barrier sucks but the shows themselves were just horrible. Nothing but dramas, weird game shows, and worst of all that k-pop trash on every channel. So I almost never watch tv now when I'm n my room but a week or two ago I was just flipping channels hoping to find something and I stumbled across this American Idol type of show(which I can't stand either) and saw WeirdoNeo singing. I was like WTF! Had to look again to make sure it was him and it definitely was. Just thought that was pretty cool. Have no idea if he won or not cause I couldn't watch that crap but hope he did well.
  • Manny2DgodManny2Dgod Joined: Posts: 62
    Well, arcade list on a website I visited said there was a SF4AE cabinet at Joy Plaza in Gunsan. Was incorrect but they had a bunch of music games. Not the particular ones I was good at but it was still fun to play!

    If there was Marvel up in non-Japan Asia, I'd have incentive to learn to play. I'm so scrubby it's not even funny. I did manage to hit Swamp with the Rex0r once (Sentinel incoming Hard Drive -> Hard Drive -> Orb hyper) and got incredibly giddy.
