Guys and gals.

I'm extremely late to the part and seem to have missed all the entertainment. Is there anyone out there willing to dump a few hours into a beginner to help him get better? plzzzz?

Can it be used by PC as well? And could you take some photos please so I can have a look.

Many thanks.

I have a Round 1 Madcatz Tournament Edition arcade stick for Xbox 360 I'd like to sell.

It's in good condition and has all Sanwa parts. I can sell in person at the upcoming YSB in Sydney (November 7th) for $80 ono if you're interested (or anyone else for that matter). Bonus of exchanging at YSB is you can try it out before committing.
Tournament Announcements / [SYD] YSB #37 - 7th November
« Last post by kyokugen on October 29, 2015, 08:02:20 PM »


Date: Saturday, 7th November 2015
Time: 11:30am - 10:30pm
Location: Red Room, Level 1, 99 York St Sydney NSW 2000
Entry Fee: $15

The doors will open at 11.30am so we can start setting up. If bringing setups, it is recommended to arrive at this time so we can help coordinate the space and power requirements for the setups on the day. Also, if you plan on parking downstairs you will have more chance of getting a spot if you're early.

Players are free to move about any game and any setup for casual games, though in the interest of fairness and ensuring everyone gets games in, please restrict casual matches to the best of three games if anyone else is waiting to play. Winner stays on. Please be considerate of others and ask if any onlookers whether they would like to play games.

While OzHadou and other communities are providing gear throughout the day, DIY setups are welcome for all games, listed or otherwise; the more setups, the more games for everyone on the day!

What is YSB?
YSB stands for York Street Battles - Sydney’s monthly gathering for all fighting games, which is supported for the players by the players. It is held at the central venue of 99 on York St in Sydney’s CBD.

Casual play, exhibitions and tournaments are all welcomed and encouraged on the day on a multitude of OzHadou and DIY set up games. Tournaments are optional, and will be run if there are sufficient numbers/interest on the day, with casual play taking up the majority of the event.

All players, communities and games are welcome - if there is a game which is not listed for DIY, please feel free to come and bring a setup - YSB is the ideal place to get people playing and interested!

BYOC - Bring Your Own Controller
Spoiler for Hidden:
Setups provided by OzHadou for casual and tournament play will not have any controllers (sticks/pads). If playing on these setups, you will need to supply your own stick or pad. There will be no spare controllers available.

There may be sticks and/or pads being unused on the day by other players, and borrowing with permission or prior arrangement while permitted, is not advised due to potential availability issues - for example, you may be playing a tournament match against each other, or at the same time. It is therefore highly recommended to bring your own controller regardless; most sticks and pads will easily fit in a small backpack for the event.

OzHadou setups are all Xbox360s running on BenQ LCD and LED monitors. Please consult other groups’ organisers with regards to any other controllers needed on the day.

Signups will be taken at the front of the Red Room by the YSB organisers - David (kyokugen), Henry (Genxa), Jonathan (Jarop), Will (azuzu) or Youssef (FaYd). Please stop by at the front desk before moving onto playing casual/tournament games. Correct change also helps.

We will be collecting registration on the day at the front until 2pm. If arriving after 2pm, please locate a YSB organiser to register. Please make it a note to locate and register as soon as you arrive at the venue, and to have correct change to make the process as smooth as possible. We will be checking registered players throughout the day.

Tournament fees for USFIV is $5, with the entry distributed for the top 3 players. Tournament fees for DIY games is dependant on the organiser's decision of the respective DIY tournament.

How to Get There
Directions to the venue may be found at the link below:

If catching public transport, get off at Town Hall Station or the Queen Victoria Building (QVB). When you arrive at 99 on York, head through the automatic doors on the right, which lead into the club, then walk up the stairs to level 1 and turn left.

Spoiler for Hidden:
All-day parking up til midnight is available at the venue for $20. A $5 discount may be attained with a 99onYork membership, which costs $10 a year (ask the front desk). Simply present the card to the staff at the car park office before using the payment machine to receive the discount.

Please note, as this is a valet service, keys to vehicles must be handed to the 99onYork staff while the car is parked in the car park. Due to this system at the venue, the car park may take some time to get into, or appear closed for periods. As mentioned previously, arriving early is recommended to minimise hassle.

Alternatives to this car park are as follows:

See you guys there!

Hello all:

Recently I have been looking for a good fightstick as my current stick is bad and hard to use.(bought with a very cheap price)

Actually I want to buy Qanba fightstick instead. I saw a post of Qanba Store (Sydney Arcade on FaceBook) on this forum and sent a message to them but got no reply, but anyway the post was in 2013 which is long ago.

Here is what I want for my new fightstick:
--I want to try and use Qanba, because it comes with "Sanwa" components (Sanwa stick and Sanwa buttons).
--Any other brand of fightstick is also fine as long as it is with Sanwa stick and buttons.
--Second hand is also ok for me, but not too old and unusable please.

I'm living in Sydney so face to face trading will be good!
Tech Talk / What is a Good HDMI Switcher / Selector to Buy?
« Last post by Vargus on October 25, 2015, 06:53:28 PM »
I was after a HDMI Switcher / Selector, preferably one that contributes the least amount of lag if any, powered and at least 4 ports.

I found these, but don't know if they are any good...

The two outputs will come in handy for streaming / capture.

and I also found this one...

Happy to buy elsewhere and online if better and / or cheaper.

Any recommendations?

Been on the beta today. Big thanks to Niah for some help. Ends up I got a play it on low settings but hopefully the game get's "optimized" in Niahs words.

The game itself is....interesting. Can't say I was like "Whoaaaa, this game is awesome" , although with so few characters and experience it ended up just as a fuck around. All of the weird block stun/push block things seem quite true, although I guess no one is playing optimally. I ended up picking Karin for a bit who seems fun. I also picked Ken, but felt I was falling back on basic SF4 techniques, but that were less effective because of how the normals operate.

Verdict - Wait to see more characters and gameplay.

Community News / Stuff Yo' Couch! (Melbourne CouchWarrior ranbat recaps)
« Last post by mutton on October 23, 2015, 10:56:25 PM »

Hi guys, welcome to the first episode of Stuff Yo' Couch!

This is a ranbat recap where we could go over all things CouchWarriors; go over results, give you guys a peek into the action and sights to be seen at the ranbat, and maybe get a few interviews with important faces and figures in the Melbourne community.

I'm still ironing out what I want to do with the show, so I apologise for any roughness or inconsistencies - please let me know what you guys think or what to see in the future!

In this episode we interview Philip John Pretty aka Redact, who's recently joined team Exile5 in light of his stellar work at BAM7 which turned out to be massive with 500 plus registrants- huge kudos to the Smash community for really blowing up the event with their international guests and hype. And we also have Darren Taing aka Dreadtech- the hardest worker in the Smash community right now, and a deserved winner of the Community Award at BAM7. The August Couchwarriors ranbat had a welcome guest in the form of an SFV preview build courtesy of Capcom Australia, so thanks very much to them- so we have a brief section of some quick opinions from the players such as David Ladu, Darcy Higgins, Jake Lynch and Kris Dabrowski.

Hope you guys enjoy the episode!
