  1. The playlist is assembled. We apologize for the poor video quality, as we chose downscaling to allow a smooth enough live stream experience as possible given the available bandwidth. Definitely check out the Jason v Regulator video in the mix here. You may have to skip ahead in sections, as this hasn't been cut up much at all. Also, during group play we were delayed getting the names and team helmets updated since I was playing in my own bracket and made the changes in between games. Stay tuned some details related to NHL 94. I'd try to keep your Saturdays clear in September if I were you. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBo10ggbB8gPlbGi2aUPJYuWKwpT5tzQE
  2. All attendees check your email, groupings are listed and some other important details within.
  3. I've wondered about this too. I'd also like to see the official tier list being used, so I know what matchups to practice.
  4. Congrats to Levi Lacross for taking 1st, Tim Ubrick for taking 2nd, and yours truly took home 3rd place after starting 6-0(grr) We are pleased with the testing results, and are confident with the quality of the setups being contributed to Tecmo Milwaukee on April 23rd. Here is a link to the Challonge bracket after group play concluded. http://challonge.com/gblantsb We had some dropouts before and after bracket play started due to participant time restraints. Here is our video playlist for the event. Skip ahead to about 22:00 minutes on the first video. We had a couple of video glitches earlier on so we apologize for the awkward cut ups early on. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6ugUwFXP54&list=PLBo10ggbB8gNgd6IVvRhqr-8NHCekBcev
  5. As Tecmo Milwaukee approaches, we are GBLAN are going to put the equipment through its paces by hosting a tournament a week from today. The stakes are low, but so is the cost to participate, only $10. Standard Madison game rules apply. Group play will be followed up with a double elimination bracket. There will be no less than 8 functional setups. Our goal is at least 16 players. Any help getting the word out is appreciated. Proceeds will go towards additional items needed to add to our game recording capabilities. The tournament main system will be setup to stream via twitch at twitch.tv/trojan1979 Please RSVP at https://www.facebook.com/events/1696079260631854/ Thanks, Trojan
  6. New number, 57 today on first attempt!
  7. We play this at our live gaming events in Green Bay. You can add me trojangb or trojangb2 on steam, and trojangblan on ps4 network
  8. There are a number of reasons why I don't think this has been as popular. 1) Flash carts aren't cheap, if you don't get them sponsored, you are likely looking at about $150 + cost of console hardware, x # of stations being represented. 2) Nostalgia is a big factor in Tecmo Super Bowl Play. The modern roms seem to be more of a novelty to mess around with casually. 3) The modern romsets don't seem to have those bugs we all love, such as Bob Nelson's insane speed, Wayne Haddix's Interceptions, and John Elway's abysmal pass control. As response times continue lowering on gaming monitors + cheaper portable computers like the Raspberry Pi(Retro Pi), I can see this being done via emulation as time progresses, and CRT screens + working NES consoles fade from existence.
  9. Where the heck was this held?
  10. Yeah that 4 person tournament at Boehmer's(not run by me at the time) with a clone console + generic contollers attached to an HDTV comes to mind.
  11. It's official, GBLAN will be teaming up with the organizers of Tecmo Milwaukee in April, to help put on a great tournament! We will be providing multiple setups including CRT screens, NES Consoles, controllers and copies of Tecmo Super Bowl! We have 10 functional NES systems plus cartridges + power strips and controllers to spare. The challenge will be the CRT transportation, but I think we can get 8 screens for sure in our vehicle. We've started reaching out to the community members, shared the posts in multiple Facebook groups, and will be reaching out to the local game stores for some additional exposure. We also have the ability to setup a stream or local recording capture of one of the stations if needed. This will be a great opportunity to network with other Tecmo players in our state. We are also looking to do a friendly mini tournament in Green Bay a couple weeks out to help warm up the players prior to this grand event, and do a nice dry run of the equipment prior. Stay tuned for that! -Trojan
  12. Oh wow, will check it out later! Why has this gotten no love?
  13. I am having a conversation about the bandwidth of the tournament and X-promotion with GBLAN's retro events later today. I am able to supply up to 10 fully functional setups to help through this.
  14. I'd be interested in getting in on that for multiple cards. It would be nice to be able to record more stations per event, and at that price, it would be hard to pass up.
  15. My stash of 11 NES consoles won't be far away if challenges arise.
  16. In my dreams for sure. It's hard to throw $200 on top of a 30 year old console, but it's so pretty!
  17. Most sub 50" HDTV displays(especially computer monitors) do not produce any significant input lag if the signal is fed captured from a digital source. The problem typically lies with the integrated composite input on the display, and it's shoddy up-scaling technology, converting analog to digital on the fly. The use of a dedicated hardware upscaler can produce a great result that can be played on. There are plenty of dedicated upscalers out there, with the best being the xRGB mini(Framemeister). Here's a link to a poor man's upscaler, which requires no modification to your consoles. http://www.monoprice.com/Product?p_id=9994&gclid=Cj0KEQiA_fy0BRCwiLaQ5-iFgpwBEiQA884sOTiiuU7QCdvBiVvSdiwqJ1DsEEBG9TqYMovYQiRfryQaAuR-8P8HAQ To further improve upon NES hardware image quality, and other retro consoles, this series by My Life In Gaming is a great watch. Here's the intro video to the process, and I'd encourage any retro enthusiast to have a looksy, as CRT displays won't last a lifetime.
  18. Trojan Jr plays TSB. Let me know if this whole jr bracket becomes a thing.
  19. I had some trouble exporting via Twitch to Youtube, so it had to be broken down into 15 minute videos. Here is the playlist. The link on Twitch expires today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVH4yPuL09s&index=1&list=PLBo10ggbB8gPLnuvmNyjlnTjb6uPgawpx
  20. Congrats to SuicideKing81 as the tournament 1st place winner! Nate from Retro4Ever took 2nd place, in a game that was filled with about as many turnovers as completions. https://scontent-ord1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/12246863_1033845909989286_5846335959814507871_n.jpg?oh=1677d9ec3ed2815b69cf8dcc1ac37cfc&oe=56BBBF08 We hope to get the games separated from the streams fairly soon, but for now enjoy the archives of both streams. http://www.twitch.tv/tecmosuicideking81/v/26024945 http://www.twitch.tv/trojan1979/v/26025012 The Trojan clan will be going on vacation soon, so give us time, and we will update with event photos. Thanks to all that participated!
  21. Update: participants may arrive as early as 5:30 to get registered. We will be setup and ready to rock and roll by then.
  22. Nathan from Retro4Ever will be at our event. We will have a signup station available for the Tundra Bowl at that time. Anyone that shows up and signs up for the Tundra Bowl while at our event, will immediately get $5 back in hand from Nathan, which essentially makes your visit to our event free. Geaux Tecmo!
  23. So does this mess with the whole "no sex in June" rule that millions of fans are now adhering to?
