Hello, my name is Romeo. I am this tournament’s organizer. If you have any questions/comments, feel free to ask.

One of the owners has respectfully voiced her concerns about this, so let’s try to cater to our hosts’ concerns. If I see you with outside food or drink inside the venue, I will ask you to go outside and finish whatever you’re eating or drinking. Please remind your fellow players as well. Thank you.

#2

have you asked if a live stream is allowed or available?


#3

Jay, I haven’t asked yet. There’s not TOO much floorspace, so… would you be able to do it with a small stream station on the side? I’m really not sure if there’s enough room, if they’re cool with it, or if the internet would even be able to handle it, so… let me ask them if they’re ok with it and run any tests that I can on their internet. Let me know the best way to test it and I’ll do it.


#4

Speedtest.net if it’s 1.5mbps for upload, it’s do able. My setup can do, just replace the screen from my Asus 25.5" to a 23" if anyone has one. I can stream via PS3. I get out at 11am from school, so i can go straight to the venue and do it. My setup has less clutter.


#5

Marvel 3 will also be run. Updates will be posted if anything changes.


#6

i was told by Coopa that the upload isn’t great, i’ll just bring a recording setup for MvC3 and upload matches on this YouTube Channel FinestKO Productions


#7

Count me in. I will bring a PS3.


#8

Thanks guys. Call for setups and monitors. Shooting for at least 5 here; the more, the better.


#9

Bringing my setup (PS3 and Monitor) and the camera again.

EDIT: What time the MvC3 actually start? 'Cause I got a friend who would want to enter this but he gets off of work AT 5.


#10

I’ll be there for ssf4 dunno bout marvel yet since im beyond horrible at it.


#11

I’ll try to help with a setup friday.


#12

Will be making it to this tournament with Alejandro and Saikyostyle.

Spirit Juice will be in attendance with an HDPVR, so recordings will be done, as Raikanami said. Raikanami, if you read this, you do not need to bring your hdpvr (if you own one), but please bring a mixer, an hdmi splitter, composite splitter–pretty much anything you’d need if you want to record, minus the hdpvr.


#13

Last minute call-in for work. I won’t be able to attend the event. I’ll need to somehow schedule and make it to the next one for sure. Sorry.


#14

I know it’s hella late, but here are the pics I took from the last tournament on Feb 18th.

Geek Chic Photography | TapEx Tournament - 2/14/2011

Romeo, feel free to post any of these if you wanna promote your tourneys.


#15

Nice job! MAH SE STICK!


#16

Now that I see these, I think I was the only black dude playing in the tournament.

And I look fat…


#17

Alright, let’s address some posts…

Let’s see… we’ve got one or two 707 players showing up, so we’ll most likely start SSFIV before Marvel. That being said, I don’t generally start at 5 on the dot, so… talk to me tomorrow. More likely than not, though, I’ll be able to get him in.

Thanks Chris.

Jay’s not coming, so you might have to bring more equipment. I’ve no idea how to handle recording console games and such, so… I’ll trust in your judgement in regards to space and the transparency of the recording setup, so do your best!

Such is life - no problem. Next time, then!

Slick stuff… These pictures are pretty cool, man. I really appreciate the coverage.


#18

These pics are looking professional! Keep it up man :slight_smile:


#19

I’m offended :rofl:


#20

I’m pretty new at recording stuff, so please be patient with us. I literally just got my equipment yesterday and am still waiting for the HDMI splitter to arrive, so I didn’t have time to practice/mess around with everything.
