Samurai Shodown V: Special Tournament (01/15/2005)

With my moving to another city and no longer having my Sunday poker game, I am free to start running the bi-weekly Kaillera tournaments again.

Game: Samurai Shodown V Special

Emulator: MAME32K 0.64

Date: Sunday January 15th

Time: 9:00pm Eastern Standard Time

Format: 2/3 Falls, Double Elimination. 3/5 Falls Winners and Losers Finals. 4/7 Grand Finals.

Server: Godweapon Server #2, Godweapon Best Of Best

All brackets will be co-ordinated through an IRC channel of my choosing on the day of the tournament and will be posted here.


  • Mandatory IRC rule is still in effect. If you have come across players on Kaillera that play this game please send them a link to this thread and tell them to get IRC. I will not co-ordinate matches between IRC and Kaillera because people don’t want to take 30 seconds for a couple meg download.

  • This game is gaining a lot of steam very quickly. If you need this game then I’m sure you can find the appropriate means (use your head) to acquire it.

Want to be a part of this…I’ll try to be around for it.

Suija has the best fatality in any game ever IMO.

So is the only thing I need to do to be in the tournament is be online at the time~??? Or is that where the mandatory IRC rule comes in~??? Please help, so I can be prepared.

i would join but i hate irc

You have to be online and in the MIRC channel. I ask everyone to be in channel so I can give out the assignments for each of the players as the rounds keep going. MIRC is very simple to use, very small (under 2 megs IIRC) and makes life a lot easier for future tournaments.

Didn’t think mame .64 has a playable SS5S, news to me at least…good luck with the online tourney.

The latest version of MAME 0.64 (you can find it on Anti3D’s download section - Anti Close) allows for play of SSV: SP. How you find the ROM is your own business but trust me it does work just fine. SSV: SP is essentially the only game played on Kaillera as it concerns SSV. Apparently SSV is broken (I don’t know I never got a shot to even play it) and SSV: SP is the only game recognized as good in this regard.

yeah hes right ,it works cuz i play it on kaillera all the time,but to people who dont have the rom yet its gonna be a bitch to find unless some1 sends it to them.

I’ll join-in and participate, although I am really not any good at the game, I’ll give it a shot anyways.

I’m stuck working overtime so I won’t be able to host this tournament.

Apologies for any inconvenience.
