Where**
Tapioca Express 9105 Bruceville Rd. #3A
Elk Grove, CA 95758
TapEx is known for its boba (bubble tea) drinks, popcorn chicken and calamari, and for it being the quintessential Asian hangout spot :rofl:. Free WiFi for those who are so inclined.

When
December 3rd - Friday at 4:30PM. Signups begin at 4:30PM and tournament will start at 5:00 PM.

Rules
-All characters allowed
-Double elimination format - 2/3 rounds, 2/3 games.
-Grand finals will be at the discretion of the players in finals. If no agreement can be reached, a coin toss decision will be invoked (heads, 2/3 - tails, 3/5). We haven’t had issues with this before, but just in case.
-If a player loses a game in a set, they can change their character. Winner can change Ultra, but must choose Ultra before the loser has to pick theirs (Evo rule).
-$10 entry fee - 9 to the pot, 1 to the venue.
-70/20/10 payout
-PS3 setups (at least two are confirmed - if more setups are available, they will be put to use)
-BYOS

Please post if you intend on entering. I like to get a general headcount to get a better idea of what I’m handling.

Also, possible HDR. I need a solid 8 man bracket to consider running it, but if it WILL be run, it’ll probably be $5 (all to pot). Post up if you intend on entering so we can make this happen.


#2

HDR will be PS3 too? Heck I might try it out.


#3

Yes, PS3. Right then, so that’s you and I. Anyone else? 6 more.


#4

I would be in, but this is on my little brothers birthday. Boo.


#5

I’ll be down if I come.


#6

Bump for sticky


#7

I think the Astro City is at Tap Ex; gonna take a look. I am gonna help work on it and see if we can get it ready for HDR next Saturday. Hope we can get a tri-sync chassis so we can use PC, PS3 (with VGA adapter), and Xbox 360.


#8

Romeo, it was nice seeing you again last Saturday, it’s been a while. I’ll get the word out for HDR, try to get you enough heads for the tourney. Not sure if I could make it, but I’ll try.


#9

Sigh I guess my retirement isn’t “official” until 2011, so I am free on Dec. 3rd if you need more guys. I could bring Tyram if he’s available and maybe Kbeast if he’s interested.

Playing HDR on a cab is very weird. I think I’ve only ever done it the one time I went to KS2. I have no real objections though, it is your tournament.


#10

ROMEO, ROMEO, wherefore art thou, ROMEO?

Oh shit, he’s over there running brackets.

I would go for both games, but I think I’ll only enter HDR cuz I don’t want to hold up any games.
Will get there late somewhat like last time cuz we still gotta travel and I still gotta work in this rough economy.

Rexy, I’m looking at you, bud.

Holler if you do end up holding it, bro.


#11

I’ll make it if I don’t have work.

crosses fingers

I really want to get into the SF scene in Sac/Elk Grove lol.


#12

You HDR heads are hardcore, jesusssss. I really appreciate the posts and if guys could get people to come, I’d be very happy about that.

No rush, but the sooner you get in, the better the opportunity you have to improve faster and have more fun.

**Now, **regarding that Astro City post…

I don’t understand this post. There’s an Astro City cab at Tapioca Express - the same venue we had last time? Please clarify, I’m a bit confused.

I’ll get back to you when I find out more about this Astro City cab.


#13

There is now an New Astro City cab at the same Tap Ex; it was put while you and the other guys were at NCR. I was playing a bit of Marvel Super Heroes on a CPSII board.

Bad news that the cab isn’t ready to run on PS3 by next Saturday; the components like the sticks and a DIY Home button is set though. A tri-sync chassis for the monitor is planned which allows VGA directly instead of hassling with converters.


#14

Wow, really? Who brought the cab there? I vaguely remember you talking about a Supergun setup some time ago.

I’ll probably stop by to take a look at it sometime. Thanks for letting me know.


#15

The one who was playing Super Turbo with you for a while (I constantly forget names :P) said it was brought by truck. It’s his own cab he got with some PS3 components already installed (has 2 Cthulu boards).


#16

Sang, huh? If you can, post whatever you know about the cab here so our tech gurus can provide some info. It has two Cthulhu boards, right? Is there a console inside? What kind of hookups does it have? What kind of sticks and buttons are there (Sanwa JLF, Seimitsu LS32, Happ…)? Etc, etc. Interesting developments we have here…


#17

From what I remember…

[LIST]
[]New Astro City
[
]Sanwa JLFs and OBSF-30s (all black). P2 has a slightly altered button layout; slanted counter-clockwise. Panel has no labels so it’s just the metal plate. No moveset insert. I guess Sang is planning to make a custom one for Super IV.
[]2 Cthulu boards but no PS3. Sang is gonna get a PS3 and a laptop (hope it can run a NAOMI/Dreamcast emulator) specifically for the cab.
[
]15/24k monitor. Planned to get 31k for VGA.
[]Marvel Super Heroes came with cab.
[
]A bit dirty. :stuck_out_tongue:
[/LIST]

I will come back there on Wenesday to get photos. I suggested Sang to put a Dreamcast in the cab since that also uses VGA so possible MVC2 and CVS2 (if the Cthulu is multi-console)


#18

Ridiculous, that’s fucking boss. I’ll check it out. Thanks Carlo.


#19

What did you expect to happen when you put HDR in the thread title? :stuck_out_tongue:


#20

Will come thru and participate in HDR and maybe SSFIV.
