  1. It is set to One Player mode, and yet they do not realize. Also, they are horrible. (Well, the one that is actually playing is.) Still, thanks for the link.
  2. Here is my feedback for the latest rendition: King of 94 IV in Toronto. Halifax and Smoz do an amazing job, of course. I figure these two must have to go into hibernation for two weeks after all of the effort that must go into putting this thing together. And Sroka was great with the stream. Some quick Pros and Cons: PROS 2 day event (with a dedicated day for Sega and one for SNES) Stream Facility itself (very modern and professional) * Those CRTs! They were great quality -- big, and in great condition for the most part. Organization (getting games in, and scores in, seems better/easier than ever) Got lots of games. Having a minimum of 6 games is cool. I think I had 12 games (made it to Round 3) CONS Location (so far outside of Toronto) * No beer! * * In short, the facility itself is amazing, but the location/alcohol sitch knocks it down considerably. Too few locals came out Wish more forum dudes made the trip, too Cost: $50 seems pricey. I wish it was like $15, just to cover expenses, and no (or little) prize $$ On a personal level, Atomic and I (who live in Toronto) got a hotel room for Friday night, thinking there would be some games happening, and to save travel time the next day. In retrospect, we should have booked a hotel for Saturday. After the Sega events Saturday, if we had a room, there would likely be more social games happening, plus we could have had place to relax after we got eliminated. I went home -- which took 90 minutes!! -- and was too burnt out to make it out again on Saturday. (I had the stream on from the comfort of my own home as soon as I got home, and it was awesome to watch! Especially the finals between AJ and Raph. Best finals ever, "in your life!", to quote Hali!) Note to self: Book hotel for day of the Sega event if it is in Toronto again. And I do selfishly hope the next one is in Toronto, too, but we need to get the beer sorted!
  3. Very handy, Smoz! I live in Toronto. If I were going to this event from afar, I personally would stay downtown, and take the subway to the venue, then a short bus (or Uber) for the last 1.0km. This venue is amazing -- it is designed for eGaming!! -- and if that is all you are going to do, yes, get a hotel close by. But!! If you want to do any "Toronto" things, I would get a hotel downtown, and take Public transit. (The vibe near Waves eGaming is not a "city" vibe; it is kinda in the middle of nowhere IMO.) I know last time around, a lot of guys stayed at the Doubletree on Chestnut St. That hotel is in a decent area to walk around and see downtown Toronto. It is also close to St.Patrick subway station, which literally is the same subway line that takes you to Pioneer Village station, which is 1km from Waves eGaming. (Mind you, the subway ride will probably be 40-60 minutes, but it is handy cuz there are no transfers.)
  4. Really? They have a solid weight, and the plastic is sturdy? That is a surprise. Hopefully you can give a followup report in a month or two? (Cheap crap shows its shoddiness pretty quick. Need to know if these are the real deal or not?)
  5. And how to you rate this emulator? Does it have an advantage over GENs or RA? (I know you are busy, but maybe just a few words?)
  6. Wow, lots of nice touches. Well done, Raph! Sometimes a pixelated look is even cooler than hi-rez; certainly they can have more character. Love the Blackhawks logo screen, and the Ranford (with light ray effect!) one below it. Nice work!
  7. For LA Kings, my D starters are reversed. (I prefer Coffey on RD.) Not a huge deal, but thought I would mention it.
  8. Sounds very cool. (A "Game Night" would also go a long way to getting ppl gathered for games among themselves, cuz some ppl get hard to find as the season advances.) The 5-10 min lead in might be a nice-to-have (that may not happen -- pretty sure Brutus is the only nerd here that isn't a shut-in), but streaming games is easy enough. Edit: Boo! Hiss! (Directed toward MikeG above :P)
  9. Edit: Tweaked lineup May 29, 2019 LA Kings C: Lebeau #47LW: Mogilny #89RW: Muller #11LD: Brisebois #43 RD: Coffey #77 Xtra attacker: Leeman #26First Forward Sub: Leeman #26First Defensive Sub: Bautin #3 Goalie: Essensa #35
  10. LA Kings if avail for me.
  11. Why? Work commitments? That is a bummer, Coach.
  12. Glad to know this is sorted! (I still don't understand how it works, but you sound like you know what you are talking about! And by now you have a lot of experience with these things.) Thanks, Halifax!
