Look fubar never said your tornament is worthless and to ban anyone just because they were critcal of your tournament is wrong, i suppose if someone really trashed talked your tournament just cause and said some really nasty things about the staff ok ban the guy. but all fubar did was try and warn people of what probably seemed to be a unpredictable and unchangable situation.
so what if he rushed to the forums, i wouldnt have really thought talking to you guys would have done much good. plus its pretty simple, 480i does not play on a device that displays in anything higher than 480i without some hardware scaling. and theres an entire faq in the tech talk section that has been there since Last year this month 7/05 http://www.shoryuken.com/forums/showthread.php?t=94426
how was he suppose to know you guys would be able to accomodate 20 new tvs overnight for the event. when has something like this been done in the past or even seem fesible, never! so i think he acted with what he though was the right thing to do. warn people that have not left yet that EVO EAST was in reality going to be the laggiest real time tournament ever.
also you guys claimed you tested it, when there shouldnt of even been a test. it will take hardware processing time for the game to display 480i at 720p or 1080p
of course youd never notice on a dvd or a slow game. also since cvs2 has varible speeds probably wasnt the best game to test. although i dont play it, i feel that would leave room for error. and you must of had a scrub test it, although im probably wrong about that, atleast i hope.
bottom line, it should of just been known that hdtvs = no good for fighters. except doa which is output at the correct resolution. And i and alot of other people understand fubars response, UNBAN FUBAR!
hopefully one day arcade tournaments will come back and problems like this will not exsist, that maybe as false as beliveing there is a god but hey anything is possible.
