    It probably isn't the greatest idea to run SFIV on a laptop, just a thought.

    If pricing is an issue, the 360 is cheaper, no? (And winning the console war! lol, no flame.) Also, 188 at Wan Chai should be a good place to start if you are shopping for sticks.

    well, i'm due for a new computer and i travel a lot, so i was thinking a highend gaming laptop would be able to run SF4... i looked at the specs and it seems that a nice laptop can meet the recommended requirements... so why not?

    i was wondering though, can the PC version play against players with the XBL version? it would make total sense.

    It does make sense, but it can't. XBL and PC doesn't mix. Also, I would try to test the benchmark out on this high end laptop of yours. I bought the newest VAIO 9 months ago, and I thought it would at least be able to run SFIV, but it can't. Yea it's 9 months, but really? Can't run it at all? I thought at least, it should run, maybe at crap quality but at least run the game, but no. So unless you are talking about Alienware, I would be very cautious about your choices.

    Edit: forget what I said about the lap top, I think if you get one of the 17" Multimedia laptops, things might work out a little bit better =).

    yah i'm eyeing a 17 inch... Deciding now... I wonder if the ati hd 4650 is better than the nvidea 130m...

    hi all hk sf4 players!

    i finally got around to sign up a srk account.

    i live in the tsun wan area and i would drop by the arcade at kwai fong from time to time.

    i mainly play at home on my 360 (gamertag: makemydate). and just today i bought a joystick finally (china made one, want a base so later on i can just swap in sanwa parts into it, hopefully).

    i mainly use balrog because i played with pad before (hovering around 1600 BP online), now that i have joystick, i will try to learn every other characters.

    nice meeting you all!

    and i think i played you

    Hey all - Gouki player here.. looking to get some good games going online (don't get time to drop by arcades because of work/family/etc. :sad:). All I usually get are 1 and 2-bar connections from US players, so hope I can add some of you as friends on PS3 and play some less laggy games!

    So far I've found:
    Ephemeral - snu_represent
    plexxx - GinTonicColonic
    Hyuga - YulBYeung
    Mister K - DuncAlunk

    Anybody else on PS3 and wanna rumble? I usually play pretty late at night btw.

    actually i'm eyeing the MadCatz TE joystick now, saw it at 188 Wanchai for 1680. i was reading about this one online and apparently it has all sanwa parts, so it's 100% like the arcade o_O

    That thing looks slick alright. I believe it is the best stick yet for home uses.
    You should still check for the sanwa stick's model on it though. 4 ways and 8 ways makes quite a lot of differences.
  • Bubba83309Bubba83309 Joined: Posts: 13
    By 4 way or 8 way, do you mean square gate or octo gate? Or is it something else?
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    ya thats what I mean
  • Bubba83309Bubba83309 Joined: Posts: 13
    The TE comes with stock square gate, and I am pretty sure all retail sticks have stock square gates.

    HK player reporting~
    Hi there, I've only started playing for a couple months,
    if you see a guy with waist length ponytail LOSING consistently with Viper, Vega and Dhalsim, it's most probably me...
    I play mostly in Diamond Hill, sometimes in MK, but never during the night, the league is simply god-like.... my $40 wouldn't last longer than 10 min...

    BTW, have any of you seen any arcade with SF EX2+ lately? Anywhere?

    just got back from my short HK vacation, managed to meet up with Ephemeral a few times at Mong Kok. Competition is fierce for sf4 especially on Thurs and Fri nights, 6 arcade cabs linked was so awesome. We have nothing like that in Canada so it was kinda disappointing coming back home lol.

    I'm visiting Hong Kong with my mom and have a ton of free time, she is always playing Mahjong with my uncle and aunt. I've only been to two arcades and they consist of gambling games and random KOFs with Neo Geo button layouts. I'm pretty bad at SF IV and I usually play on pad.

    Right now I'm in the Tuen Mun district and wanted to know the closest SF IV arcade to me and how to get to there if possible. I'm an ABC and my Cantonese is terrible and I go by Andrew or Drew so if you spot a confused ABC that is probably me. Also, do they have Third Strike here?

    You'll see a ton of those KoF arcades everywhere, you're pretty far from any arcades that has sf4 but if you can get to Tsuen Wan and take the line all the way to Mong Kok and exit D2 there's the gamezone there. 6 SF4 cabs all linked. I haven't seen any 3s anywhere, but I think Eph told me there's some around.

    My luck, I'll be in Mong Kok tomorrow and I'll have some free time. My mom is visiting a friend so I'll be able to stroll around and we are taking the "west subway." Apparently her friend lives close to a university, hopefully I'll be able to find it tomorrow.

    Played a few games at gamezone back on the 1st of October. It doesn't seem Capcom has much of a scene in HK and only one person was playing SF IV.

    Hi everybody,

    I just came back from my holidays in Hong Kong and gotta say that I got my ass wooped pretty bad in MK Game Zone, thanks for that. :)

    I don't know if anybody of the Chinese people who play there post here but I really liked to watch some of the players there.

    So props go out to that one Gief player who came to me and gave me tips on how to play my boxer better, you seemed like a pretty cool guy. Also to the other boxer player with the New Era hat with superfluent English (I figure he was from the US) who told me to keep on trying when I lost 3-0 against a really beastly Guile player. :) And a couple other people seemed nice too but I didn't really have the time to connect with them.

    Anyways, next time I'm in Hong Kong, I wanna play there too. :)

    That's probably Ern, aka Ephemeral on the boards.

    Hi Ephemeral, sup? :D

    Hi, I'll be visiting Hong Kong in late October and was wondering around what area the major arcade scene is located. I'm seeing a lot of reference to Mong Kok but I was also curious if there was a scene anywheres in or around the Wan Cahi or Causeway Bay area, since that's where my hotel will be.
    In Salt Lake City? PM me if you think your rad in 3rd strike, SFIV, MvC3 or CvS2. Looking for some good competition!

    MK = Mong Kok. Go to Exit D2 and from there you should be able to see the New Town Mall and the entrance to Game Zone.

    Have fun there!
  • noodlemannoodleman Cancer of GTASF Joined: Posts: 5,165
    yea, i figured out the mong kok part. I'll see if i get to drop by...I'm on a short leash from my fiance :P

    Your fiance can shop through the New Town Mall and pick you up when she's done. ;) The whole mall in which MK Game Zone is located is full with cute stores that offer interesting stuff for women (seriously, no shops for guys there).

    My girlfriend and me did it that way and we're still a happy couple. :D
  • Alvin81Alvin81 69th HipsterLord Joined: Posts: 150
    noodlenoob just bring her into the arcade, my gf and i went together one night, there's a shitload of other games she could probably play anyways. oh yah man you gotta try out that gundam pod there lol its like $25 hkd per play, getty has nothing compared to the machines they have over there
  • noodlemannoodleman Cancer of GTASF Joined: Posts: 5,165
    lol you have no idea how much she hates me playing games :P

    but I might get a chance to play this afternoon/evening at MK Game Zone.

    I'm pretty sure I played Ern today, there were two good rog players there today splitting rounds, a shorter guy in a suit and a taller guy. I was one of the scrubby sagat player. more specificially the one that was spamming Focus Attacks for no reason. GGs!

    If I you are talking about who I think you are talking about, no, neither of those guys are ern (ephemeral). Those two are pretty much noobs compared to ern. Don't get me wrong, they aren't bad, I have played them before, but ern's rog is like on a completely different level.
