Changes from the Last Tournament

The one main problem from the last tournament was spacing. Thats all about to change. For this tournament, all the games will be placed outside of the arcade room that way theres plenty of spacing. They will continue to remain there from that point on for regular business as well as future tournaments.

Sometime before the date of the tournament, we will have pictures posted showing you where the machines have been moved to.

Cabinets

Okay, definitely the biggest disappointment for this year since the company that makes our cabinets is on back order (I dont know why). I was planning on getting at least two more showcase cabinets for this to work, but it turns out that planned got ruined.

So this is how the cabinets will be setup for this tournament:

CvS 2 will have two showcase cabinet setups.

MvC 2 and 3s will each have one showcase cabinet and one Capcom cabinet (the slightly bigger sized blue cabinets like Camelot has). These games wouldve had two showcase cabinets, but the plan got ruined. So this will have to do. HOWEVER, we will have the Finals/Losers and Grand Finals played on the showcase cabinets.

ST will be put into the showcase cabinet that 3s is in after the conclusion of 3s.

Heres Directions to the Special Parking Area:
(Two ways depending where youre coming from)

From Mt. Vernon Ave. (10 E/W):

-Head North on Mt. Vernon until you come to Johnston St.; TURN LEFT.

-Head West on Johnston until you come to Bordwell Ave.; TURN RIGHT.

-The very first gate you see on the right side, enter through there.

-At the gate, hand in either a printed out or hand written paper with: Pro-Swap-Meet Fighting Game Tournament 7/17/04; then you will be granted access. Park anywhere in the designated parking area, just remember to leave plenty of room when it comes time to leaving.

From Mill St. (215 N/S):

-Head West on Mill until you come to Mt. Vernon Ave.; TURN LEFT.

-Head South on Mt. Vernon until you come to Johnston St.; TURN RIGHT.

-Head West on Johnston until you come to Bordwell Ave.; TURN RIGHT.

-The very first gate you see on the right side, enter through there.

-At the gate, hand in either a printed out or hand written paper with: Pro-Swap-Meet Fighting Game Tournament 7/17/04; then you will be granted access. Park anywhere in the designated parking area, just remember to leave plenty of room when it comes time to leaving.

Final Things:

All controls will be checked prior to the date of the tournament.

Around halfway through the tournament, we will have an intermission and have pizza and drinks. This intermission should roughly be about 20-25 min worth so that everyone can relax, have some food and drink, and chat with one another.

What Im hoping for is by the time we reach intermission, all we have left are Finals/Losers and Grand Finals for the games.

This will be a great tournament this summer as well as pre-evolution practice (although Evolution is on consoles this year).

Thats about it. Any Questions, just post them on this topic.

Just wanted to bump this shit up.

P.S. Hey Eugene, what about GGXX? I’m sure there are some GGXX heads around here too hoping to get some games in…


#19

I don’t have it anymore :frowning:

I don’t really see GGXX as that great of a tournament game and it doesn’t really do that well in business over here.
