No Alpha 3 :sad:

so SF3s is going to be played on an arcade cabinet right. still no pictures yet dude? whats up with that?? you have like 4 threads for this thing. count me in. good to see sa throwing tournies again!!!:rock:

No, SF3 will be played on a PS2 in order to win a SF:Z cabinet…I know it’s a bit weird, but the prize is well worth it!

ah oh well. i would prefer 3s arcade rather than ps2 console using a stick.

MvC2 is a bit weird. the ps2 version isn’t as good as the DC version, but the DC version has some issues with certain joysticks/adapters by randomly saying they’re not plugged in during a match.

I assume for all games aside from 3rd strike the prize is a cash distribution of 70/20/10?

bumpage. I believe pics of the cabinet should be up sometime soon. btw i’m hoping to learn some marvel2 so I’ll be happy to play :slight_smile:

Can’t wait for this shit let’s hope I can get off work for this D:

Yoyoyooyoy I wanted to know if there are any good players in sa? I noticed a couple of then at evo south, but nothing I should be impresed at. I guess ill look forward to this tourney as well.

Ps: I love betty >.>

Ps2: betty loves me too :stuck_out_tongue:

Hey Rice, I think that we should have the Mvc2 tourney on DC!

Reason: Not much lag at** ALL**, 99% arcade perfect!
DC > Ps2! Ps2 Lag is Horrible, 60% arcade Perfect!

Sounds good! Only problem is would other people rather play that one? And if so, who can bring a DC with a copy of the game? Lemme know ASAP so I can plan ahead.

Also, another question. Which version of Soul Caliber would you guys rather play? Lemme know so I can plan it.

still no pics of the cab… boo

I’m not even sure if people are going to enter for SC2 o_O

Here are the pics of the cabinet!

All of the parts are brand new! Also, I swapped the starting times of CvS2 and the SF3 tourny. CvS2 will start at 2 and 3s starts at 4. If there are any problems, please let me know.

sweet cabinet…american sticks…eww D;

so liek i shoudl be there.

how many dcs you have for mvc2 and do you have any converters?

rice burner. you need to have mvc2 on dc or nobody will enter… well from the local and out of town mvc2 players.

you need to check the south forums and look into the san antonio thread to see whos going to bring a dc for sure.

update yo shit

out of curiosity, will the cabinet be shipped to the winner, or will they have to find their own way to take it home?

Looks like the cab was a conversion from Killer Instinct 1 or 2 to Street Fighter Alpha. Only Killer Instinct uses the notation High attack, Low attack and quick, medium, and fierce. But still nice cab.
