York Street Battles #35 - September 5th
« on: August 12, 2015, 11:14:34 PM »


Looking for one last chance to get some games in before OHN? We've got you covered! Registration for OHN13 closes September 6th so sign-up now at ohn.ozhadou.net



Details
Date: Saturday, September 5th 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 BYOC:
Worthy to note that setups provided by Ozhadou for casual and tournament play will not have controllers (sticks/pads) provided by Ozhadou. If playing on these setups, it is expected to bring your own controller (arcade stick or pad).

This also applies to DIY games.

While there may be arcade 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; do not assume there will be any spare on the day. The good news is most sticks and pads can easily fit and be in a small backpack to the venue on most forms of transport.

Registration
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.

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.

In addition to entry fees, tournament fees will be collected for games running on OzHadou equipment, i.e. USF4. Any other tournaments will be arranged by their respective communities.

How to Get There
Directions to the venue can be found on this link below:
http://www.99onyork.com.au/how-to-get-here

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.

Parking
Spoiler for Parking:
All-day parking up til midnight is available at the venue for $15. 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:
Cinema Centre Car Park (Centro Parking): accessible 24/7 from 521-527 Kent St and 306-318 Sussex St. $10 on Saturday if you enter before 5pm.

I noticed that MKX is on PS4; how compatible are PS3 sticks for PS4?

PS3 controllers may be used with MKX as long as you have a PS4 controller, as NRS has opted in for this behaviour:

http://shoryuken.com/2015/04/15/mortal-kombat-xs-playstation-3-arcade-stick-compatibility-still-requires-playstation-4-controllers/
From what I've seen it seems effective enough as I think most of the MKX guys at meets and majors have been using DS4s and BC mode these last few months.

Thanks, man. Will bring a PS3 stick in to give it a try. Still saving up for a PS4. :/
