#3

I guess I will be representing Team GNG. GNG PheNOM!


#4

I’ll be there representing team me. Although if GNG is willing to have SFIV 2v2 or 3v3 (since enough players should theoretically be there) I’d be down to represent an actual team.


#5

The date sounds great. Hopefully the weather will be too. :>


#6

2v2 would be amazing


#7

A 5v5 would be even more amazing and fun, but I don’t know how teams will be assembled.

Also, I really want to improve the stream for this event, so if anyone (sonicBOOM, FunkQue) will like to brainstorm about that and share tips/secrets/suggestions or even get talk about it in-person, we should do that ASAP. What needs to be improved upon is:

1.) basically two capture cards, last time I had to keep switching the video inputs from one tv to the other. Plus there needs to be games being playing on the stream at all times, no idle screens (aka a character select screen running forever)

2.) more help with commentary and running the stream, I’ll show and teach people around the program I use

3.) the internet needs to have a steady upload speed throughout the whole day. In the morning at GNGC 1, the speed was great at 4mbs but at night it crawled down to 0.8mb or some shit.

4.) I think I may need a stronger pc for wirecast or something because it’s running so slow on my laptop, lol.

If anyone has anymore ideas, please feel free to post them here or bring them up to me in-person.


#8

I’ll be there.

I’m sure as everyone in Minnesota knows, I’ll be there that week visiting my folks.

:wgrin:


#9

I have $50 on mike… unless i’m entering… then i have $50 on me :slight_smile:


#10

Will be here.

LETS HYPE THE HELL OUTA THIS EVENT!!! :cool:


#11

Fear not, Desmond. I shall help! From our tests last night my machine should have enough hardware to handle a stream, next week we should see how well it would fare with two capture cards running so we will be able to reduce time spent on the character select screens and such.

If anyone has a USB hub they could contribute to our great cause, it would be much appreciated and awesome.


#12

Sounds good. We should probably do a test stream at the next GNG SSF4 tourney.


#13

Get Hyped the stream is going to rock nice work guys. Webster will be back to help out this is confirmed. This event will be amazing.


#14

Btw Gene and Matt, we should try to brainstorm a cool schedule for we can a lot of the games equal stream time. We can discuss this in person.


#15

nice! ill make sure to be there and more prepared than last time! cya guys there


#16

Some of us Wisconsin guys might come over again for this.
