    HDMI TV's

    These do output a decent composite signal, and are extremely small, and the included controllers are as good as any 3rd party Genesis controller I've used. I brought one to the Tecmo tournament in Chicago, and it worked great for some Genesis pick up games while we waited for a game to stream. Crt is best, but if your hotel has an HDTV, upscaling composite or using the built in HDMI scaler is going to have a similar lag experience, the difference being that the HDMI will look better.

    NHL 94 SUPER NINTENDO HIGHLIGHTS

    What you have said is the most insanely idiotic thing I've ever read. Nothing you have written could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this forum is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points, and may the NHL94 gods have mercy on your soul. Seriously, your level of trolling exceeds even my own. Go find a new bridge.

    [October 28, 2018 - Vancouver, BC] - KING of '94 III

    I apologize, has the actual weekend been determined on this yet? I'm looking at hosting a Tecmo event in October in Green Bay, preferably the weekend of the 20th which is when the Packers have a bye week. Would like to avoid any conflicts with you guys, as there may be a player or two that would choose one over the other.
  5. Stay tuned for more fun. We will start locking down dates soon. Hoping to make an announcement not far off from the big dance in Vancouver!

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.

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.

    Affordable Sega Genesis HDMI Console?

    Update, I was able to get in touch with my contact at Fallout Games. First off, he stated that the batch their ordered was supposed to have longer controller cables, and that their next revision will have that this go around. Right now they are comparable with a normal Genesis controller, but they should be closer to that 10 foot length enjoyed by their current SNES clones. While the image appears sharper than the SNES clone, the Minigen HD does have that video distortion on horizontal movement issue. I have forwarded the following video to them for review. My guess is that the pixel uniformity is not there, or the signal is interlaced coming into the scaler, causing this artifacting. All that being said, it still beats playing via composite on an HD screen. There is some latency, but it's not bad. Some of the deke timings might be a bit off against those top tier goalies like Roy or Belfour, but maneuvers like checks, quick passes, really aren't affected IMO. I'm not a pass shot guy so I can't speak to that, but i'd think that would also be affected somewhat by the minor delay. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1g-YrAAq6S1W_sHuoi4UppNZ_PotEuxwm ^^ link for the video

    The Retro World Series Tecmo Tour

    Our friends at the Retro World Series are touring the states running Tecmo Super Bowl events. There is a high probability that we will be teaming up with them for a WI based event, one with a far greater reach. Check out their promo video, and please retweet it to spread the word to other retro gamers.

    Affordable Sega Genesis HDMI Console?

    I've had some time on the minigen HD. It's performance is comparable to the SNES version from Gamerztek with these differences.... 1) There is some sort of weird graphical distortion on movement. It's something that is difficult to unsee, like some sort of dithering. I'll try to post a video showing that later. It shows up especially around the stars that surround the player 2) The included 6 button controllers on the Minigen HD are closer to the original product, than the SNES version and are "good enough" for NHL94, but I'd still encourage folks to bring their own in case they were finicky. For some reason, the cables are fairly short, in contrast to the 10 foot cables on the SNES clones, which are really nice. Given the choice between composite on an HD screen from an original console, or HD from the clone, I'd go with the clone. The lag was not an issue for me to pull off dekes, one timers, etc. While it's not perfect, it's certainly playable, and would be an improvement over standard systems not attached to a CRT. In both the SNES and Genesis clones from Gamerztek, there seems to be an audio level issue, as in it's really loud and can easily distort, so you have to keep the TV audio down to compensate.

    The Stars were in Dallas for NHL94, so again, this is NHLPA with one timers added. It's a tweener game. There isnt' even manual goalie.

    Incorrect, it's NHLPA93 teams and rosters. The Stars are still in Minnesota in this game.

    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.
  15. 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/

    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.
  17. @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.

    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.

    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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. It should be mentioned that I will be breaking the vids up into individual games as time permits.
  24. 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
  25. 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
