  1. Affordable Sega Genesis HDMI Console?

    Reading is for losers in school.
  2. Affordable Sega Genesis HDMI Console?

    Talked to Scott D over there, he is shipping a console to me today for evaluation. I'll do some streaming and offer some raw opinions on it's overall performance.
  3. Just a heads up I've started uploading individual games on the the Edge of 94 WI Facebook Page. https://www.facebook.com/pg/gbnhl94/videos/
  4. What : NHL 94 tournament for both SNES and Genesis Where : Edge VR Arcade in Green Bay, WI 2642 Packerland Drive Suite 1, Green Bay, WI 54313 When : February 24th, 2018 Signup here! https://goo.gl/forms/h4P4EyxNmxvACEgm2 Waiver form here! https://www.smartwaiver.com/w/5a4be09fbf6ba/web/ Cost : $30 for Adults $10 for accompanying children, includes automatic entry into both SNES and Genesis tournaments, one will precede the other. Please send payment via Paypal when RSVPing for the event to trojan1979@gmail.com, stating who you are paying for. All entries include a VR time voucher(a $20 value), valid for those at least 12 years of age.. Additional time may be purchased while present. Users may RSVP at this Facebook event page. You are considered signed up once you have sent in your payment, again $30 for adults, $10 for kids to trojan1979@gmail.com http://tinyurl.com/NHL94WI Format : Group play will precede bracket play, first SNES, then Genesis. There is an initial 32 player cap for this tournament. If we receive additional interest and have taken in payment, we will take measures to increase the tournament size. Rules : 5 minute periods, penalties on, no offside, manual goalie. If it's in the game, it's in the game. No game mechanics are banned. Examples are pass shots, CB checks, hail mary shots, goalie interference goals, rebound goals on penalty shots, etc. A coin flip winner will be the home team(player 1) and call the matchup. The opposing player is the away team(player 2) and choses which of the two teams they want for that matchup. A player cannot call a matchup more than once during the tournament. These roles are reversed for game two of a playoff series. If the series goes to game 3, another coin flip and matchup selection must be performed. Games cannot end in a tie. A new game must be started in the event of a tie game at the end of overtime. Intentional time wasting in your own zone is prohibited. You must attempt to advance the puck into the opposing zone whenever possible. Players caught abusing this may have goals deducted, or in extreme cases the game awarded to the opposing player. Players are required to take a photo of their score and report to the scorekeeper. There is a 10 goal deficit mercy rule. The game is over once a 10 goal difference is reached. 10 goals is the max goal differential counted. Players are permitted to bring their own OEM or approved 3rd party controllers. All other equipment is provided by us, however we could use your help(see down below) Payout : 100% of money taken in from child entries will be paid out, 50% to each bracket. For each $30 entry, $8 goes to the SNES bracket, $8 to the Genesis bracket, and $10 to the venue for hosting us and providing the VR experience. An approximate 60/30/10 split payout will be for each bracket to 1st/2nd/3rd place. Hotel Accommodations :There are multiple locations within 2 minutes driving distance, including one that can be walked to from the venue. We are working on setting up a group rate and will update this thread when we have it. We are about 3 minutes from the Airport in Green Bay. For those wondering where to stay, the Hotel J is a 2 minute walk away from the venue, or a 10 minute crawl if you overindulge. Hotel J Address: 2620 S Packerland Dr, Green Bay, WI 54313 Phone: (920) 499-1900 What types of systems are used for this? : All Genesis systems and controllers are OEM. All screens used are CRT, which means no input lag. SNES are a mix of 1st gen, model 2, and NOAC clone units. All controllers are either OEM or Cirka brand clones, which work very well. Will this be streamed? : Yes, unless otherwise stated you can follow the action on twitch. Please favorite www.twitch.tv/trojan1979. We may also have @kingraph and The Retro Sports gamer stream via wifi hotspot on their own stations for additional coverage. Can I dress up in hockey attire? : Yes, you will basically be put in the sin bin if you don't get into character. How can I help the tournament organizers? : In addition to making an early commitment to attend, we ask that you share the existence of this tournament, early and often, on all forms of social media. Make plans to travel with friends, and make this a destination. We are also in need of some additional SNES systems. At this time, we own about 12 Genesis systems, but only 3 or 4 SNES systems. Anyone willing to bring an SNES setup would be of great help. That would include, a console, composite hookups, two controllers, and game copy.
  5. Affordable Sega Genesis HDMI Console?

    I'm talking about the console listed above. It has NES and SNES ports. One is for NES, one is for SNES. As I understand it their SNES stuff is region free so you can plug the Super Famicom stuff in.
  6. @angryjay93 In the frenzy that followed after the end of the Genesis finals, I regret that we didn't get you in the final picture man. Anybody good with photoshop? I'm talking Michael Scott level.
  7. HDMI TV's

    I ended up with an OSSC, which is a line doubler. Pros, no lag from the scaler at all, not even 1 frame and it only costs about $200. Cons, it looks like a homebrew project because it is, and it's really finicky with capture cards.

    That's not for Super Famicom, that's for regular NES.
  9. Affordable Sega Genesis HDMI Console?

    So we already used about 6 of the Gamerztek HD SNES consoles during the tournament.(not the combo units listed above) I also bought extra controllers from them, as they were amazing IMO, something you don't typically see from a clone controller. The cable was long, the dpad and button action was great for what we are doing. We had the systems hooked up via composite however. I had played on HDTVs, and while the scaler is good for casual play, the timing difference is noticeable vs a CRT. My only complaint with the console was the audio levels. They were way too high, and it was easy to distort. I had one TV that didn't like any of the clones, only a real console. That might be due to the analog signal strength from the actual console. This was 1 out of about 10 TV's I had hooked up during the tournament, so I wouldn't let that be a concern. I have played using their non HD Genesis clone, and I am not very impressed so far. The controllers are shorter, and I struggled with games like Street Fighter 2 trying to pull off the moves. I was able to play NHL94 ok, but the buttons were stiff. I'm assuming the latency will be a similar concern over the HDMI, but I'm awaiting my HD Genesis test unit from them to confirm.
  10. After contemplated how events unfolded all weekend, I recorded a recap video, real raw off the top off my head. Probably missed something of note, but wanted to do this without emotion behind it.
  11. Thanks for the props @kingraph, I know there were some hiccups, and you guys were really cool about it. I even had a bunch of help from players swapping systems from SNES and GENS to help move things along. Everyone cooperated really well. We won't be making that mistake again. I plan on doing a video recap of my thoughts, the good, the bad, and what we plan to do about it in the future.
  12. It should be mentioned that I will be breaking the vids up into individual games as time permits.
  13. Great work @corbettkb! I combined these with many of the other photos that were taken and created a Facebook album on our King of 94 WI page. https://www.facebook.com/pg/gbnhl94/photos/?tab=album&album_id=581962518809141
  14. Answering the question related to the video take downs. TGFN gave us a ton of sponsorship support in exchange for broadcast rights. It's imperative that the tournament footage not be posted without permission on another platform, or we could lose further support from them. Everything mentioned below was made possible through their financial support.... -Organist -Broadcast Equipment -Advertising Budget -Arda and his contributions to the Raffles
  15. Just an FYI our friendly hosts have requested that we keep our beer consumption limited to bottles or cans, no kegs in the building. Also for you mixer folks, if you can drink from something with a minimal spill impact, vs a red solo cup, that's also preferred. Absolutely no alcohol will be permitted in the room where the VR equipment is held. Please adhere to this so we don't have to slash you.
  16. We went through the SNES groups on the Retro Sports Gamer Podcast yesterday, one correction was made adding Scatterbrainzz.(sorry about that bud) https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/159Hb08Bor8prZWR1M5QwpmIQt96SxJeW3wP3v16fbGs/edit?usp=sharing

  19. SEGATHON this Saturday

    If you want to go all low tech about it, i'd recommend just killing the audio input from the game, and then using your webcam's mic to capture the audio via the tv speakers. It's crude, but also picks up everything else, and you don't have to manage it. You should come to GB just to see what i'm working with.

  21. We were featured in a local publication. https://www.thepress.media/2018/02/12/nhl-94-tournament-coming-to-ashwaubenon/ On that note let me take this moment to announce that we will be pitting Coachmac and Angryjay93 vs Arda Ocal and Kingraph in a 2v2 vs cpu world record attempt during our tournament intermissions.
  22. Can't wait to have you. Anyone wanting to do Tecmo Friday night can do so by sending $10 via paypal, plus the processing fee to trojan1979@gmail.com. We typically have about 16 players at these things.
