This sounds awesome. I know this might be a stupid question but will there be a stream? Or do we just tune in on GGPO and watch the matches?
And I went through all that trouble putting the stream link in the banner and posts.
Sabin will be streaming on his channel: www.twitch.tv/nycfurby
We would like all spectators (in game and out of game) to use the stream to keep the games free of any spectator lag.
Edit: Plus you get to hear Sabin’s great commentary! :tup:
Looking at the signup page, I saw many non-regulars entering.
From my experience playing/running ggpo online tourneys, the most annoying thing is unable to connect.
You’d often have two guys blocking the whole tourney because they cannot connect.
Most likely it’s because their ports are not forwarded correctly (they will tell you it’s forwarded), and they were playing fine with other players because the other guys set it up properly.
I strongly suggest requesting all participants to test their ggpo setup before friday and make sure it works properly. Instead of waiting until friday when kuroppi enters you into the tourney and then you get stuck.
forward UDP ports 6000-6009 to your computer
follow instructions from http://portforward.com/
download open check port tool
test UDP ports 6000-6009
if everyone can do that and test it prior to the tourney, it would probably make this a successful tourney
(if time permits, during the ping checks, the participants should challenge sabin from EC and cigarbob from WC and make sure they can connect)
Great idea. Thanks papasi!
Will you be available to assist with this before the tourney starts?
Also, please note where you are on the signup page (in the first 32 or listed as an alternate). Though we don’t know how many people may not show up and how many alternates can get in, you should be able to have a general idea of your chances to get in.
The stream looks great! Big thanks to you and Kuroppi for putting this together!
Can i still enter? didn’t know about this until just now, lol.
List of players who have signed up are here: http://www.kuroppi.com/ggpo/results/
The 32 bracket has filled up a while ago but we’re still taking sign ups as alternates and you can even try to sign up in GGPO before the tournament (you never know). I know a couple of people who made the 32 have stated they probably can’t make it now so there will at least be a couple of alternates who make it in. As with any tournament (online or offline) people will flake or have something come up so I would expect a number of alternates to make it in.
In retrospect, I should have opened the signups to round one only and open round two after the first tournament finished and round three next week, so that players who found out about this late, could have a good shot at entering. Live and learn.
We’ll do it that way for the next one.
I see, well i have already registered in you page, if i can’t make it i’ll try in the next one.
Cleared my friday night just to watch people play Super Turbo online
I would enter , but have a shitty wifi connection only right now =(
When are the brackets coming out?
When the tournment starts.
I apologize, I missed the link in the first post. I did say it was a stupid question
Thanks to iplaywinner!
Too good, this’ll really help pass the time I’m trapped at work
Never played ST (Unfortunately…) but fuck I’m so hyped to watch this.
