Tournament Videos and media from Worldwide

I made this thread (legal stuff) with links for videos and media from tournaments around the world:

The full B3 tournament video is now available for download thanks to eidrian


The B3 Battle By The Bay was the West Coast Street Fighter Alpha 2 arcade grand championship tournament held on 20 July 1996 at Sunnyvale Golfland in San Francisco Bay Area California. B3 was proposed by Justin Ratcliff, organized by Tom “Inkblot” and Tony Cannon and promoted/supported by ALT.GAMES.SF2
At B3 there was Street Fighter Alpha 1 and Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo but the centerpiece of this tournament was the all day Street Fighter Alpha 2 tournament.
This tournament had amazing players with never seen skilled characters like: Julien “Da Mizer” Beasley´s Sodom, Graham Wolfe´s Chun Li, Thao Duong from LA, Alex Valle, John Choi, Jeff Schaefer “everyone worst nightmare” more named “LAAkuma”, Richard Koven, Jason Cole, Mike Watson, Martin Vega, Apoc, David Sirlin, Tony Ngo, Matt Taylor and many other old school players.

Full video of Alpha 2 B3 Tournament recorded 10 years ago (1996) by Apoc with his camera and tournament directors:

Beautiful find.

This is pure old school stuff (Gold) and i have it in my hard drive for years, the only bad thing is that I still dont have the second half of the B3 Tournament video, this video that Im posting is the first half and has many goodness from Alex valle, John Choi, David Sirlin, Jason Cole, Apoc and many other old school players.

note: if anyone has the second half of the B3 video (I think the name is: Battle By the Bay (B3) pt 02.mpg) Im willing to do anything to have that video (I even will pay for that if I need to… please… anyone?) Apoc, Inkblot and others from that time: if you know anything about this second half of the tournament video or were to get it I will be very thankfull.


#4

where are the vids on hameko? I heard they had to change things because there bandwidth was getting destroyed.

anyone?


#5

I got some old shit too. John Choi vs Thao Duong MWC2k A3 finals. Soon, ppl. Soon.


#6

I have much more old school stuff, I will try to post tomorrow the USA vs Japan of 1999 in SF Alpha 3.


#7

Apparently I don’t have enough megs left on my passport?


#8

Any old COTA footage? :frowning:


#9

Seems the limit was 300 MB for first time users? Should’ve fucking told me moron, seems I downloaded 400 MB for nothing.

FUCK YOU.


#10

how did you get this stuff?


#11

I didn´t notice untill now that users can download a limit of 300MB, I will re-upload the B3 file (around 400MB) in our server at akumacombos and I will re-post it here soon.

NG1313: there´s no need for the shit talk, I uploaded this file in that freeserver because I tought there was no restrictions, in 1 or 2 days the B3 file will be available for download in a much faster server.

xX_Deus_Xx: I got this years ago and I have much more golden “era” stuff, more is coming.


#12

Why don’t you just throw the whole thing up on Google Video? (yes, you have my blessing).


#13

That was my bad, thatfree server is fake and allow only max of 300MB, more than that needs to be with bullshit "passport"
1 or 2 days and the file will be ready in akumacombos server (much more faster than the free server)

sorry about that :wasted:


#14

i used flashget and was able to resume the download, good video


#15

Doesnt the quality gets crappy/worse in Googles?

btw: do you have by any chance the secnd half of the B3 tournament? I think the name is “Battle By the Bay (B3) pt 02.mpg” and the original that I have is "Battle By the Bay (B3) pt 01.mpg"
The B3 video was splited in 2 files but no one knows who got the original full and both files.

The reason that I didnt PM you was that I already did in the past about familiar stuff like this and I never got reply, and since I do not want to bother you and other people who should be very busy with Evolution tournaments I just posted the B3 files here (part 1 because I dont have part 2)

I know also that the finals of B3 Alpha thatare surfing in the web are not completed because according with the B3 report setction of the Alpha 2 Strategy maganize Valle won the final match with Sagat against Choi so my question if you can reply is:

Do you have the full B3 tournament video and full finals?

p.s.: it is ok if I post here the USA vs Japan fight of 1999 in Alpha 3? (and stuff like that)


#16

really? great, I just edited the first post with instructions to use it that way.
thanks for the heads up.


#17

I’d rather host it on my own servers than having it on horrid Google video. Plus, if people want to keep it on their computers, they can’t because everytime you want to watch it, it must be downloded again.

If you want the B3 VHS i’ll just upload it for everyone, just say the word.


#18

the full b3 vhs? if so please do!


#19

Do you have the “full” VHS? with the complete finals and everything were Alex valle wins the final match with Sagat?


#20

Master Akuma, why not upload at Filefront? We’d probably get a decent speed too.
