  1. TITLE CHANGE - I will now be posting what I am listening to on Fridays at work or when being awesome. I encourage you to do the same. I'm always curious to know what everyone listens to. Hurricane55 is jamming Jay-Z. TDO is probably listening to Boy George. What about the rest of you? I've been cranking Young Widows, Young Widows – Old Wounds , and Thrice, Thrice – The Artist In The Ambulance , today.

    Irving, TX - July 28, 2018 - Tecmo Dallas

    The misguided self importance here is comical. Since I’ve seen nearly the same “numbers” since before Madison, at least we know the source of accusation now. (Not Hal? Maybe he was given that spreadsheet? Just saying I am seeing it in full now and it is coming from this “camp”.) Storage this year was ~3100 You can’t manage an AWS site with RDS, Elasticache and etc for less than 90/mo. You forgot travel/lodging/food for 5 staff. You forgot travel/lodging/food for multiple trips per year to madison. You forgot advertising. You forgot email services. (before you complain, you can’t use free email services for a list of 30k people.) You forgot box truck rentals. You forgot all the donation entries. You forgot free flight travel and hotels for multiple less fortunate players per year. Who knows what else. I’m on my phone and really don’t care. The assumption here is amazing. Hal, post your P&L for 16, 17 and 18ytd then I’ll post mine. I promise you my losses are far greater. Adios, Tecmo. P.S. I have the IP of the person who submitted the takedown as of yesterday. That person has multiple accounts on multiple sites and services. They are posting in this thread. I’m not disclosing who it is because the more they visit our forum from different locations, the more dots I can connect back to them in regards to other drama and accusations. Multiple Discord accounts, twitter accounts, TPC profiles, you name it. I will post it all in full in due time. Maybe I’ll pull a RWS and announce it the weekend of this person’s Upcoming event. It wasn’t Hal, however, It is an associate of Hal.

    Update: Where I've Been

    Sorry for not being more responsive. I was waiting to make a huge announcement involving our tournament manager with customizable data points where you can literally make a reactive database for ANY title you wish, but, then the unthinkable happened. In the last 8 weeks, I bought a business and moved to Jacksonville from Tampa to run said business. In addition, my Tecmo Madison partner and best friend (Casey) took his own life. Tecmo has been a bit of a sore spot since and I've pretty much checked out on it since that happened. A lot of you met and got to know Casey. He was a super happy, creative and talented man. He really enjoyed building the new Tecmo Madison, the new responsive database and our esports tournament manager which we were about to roll out. I hope this feeling passes but as of now, every time I look at what we built, I tear up a bit. Going from talking to someone nearly every day to then trying to understand what they did is super, super heavy. If you're a praying man, say prayers for his family and also mine. There is a lot of hurt and confusion going around. As of now, I have zero Tecmo plans in the near future. I am swamped with work but also have a heavy heart. If you are hurting, reach out. You know me. I love all of you and would give you my all and have in many cases. Let this be a lesson to us all and let's not bury anyone else anytime soon.

    Wayne, NJ - 05/19/18 - The Jersey Cup

    For sure. Gotta get through Madison and then we can start the hype train. Having a tourney super close before/after Madison is definitely going to hurt any hype train from my end. We'll have a good 3 weeks though.
  9. You can dive. This whole post is a lie.
  10. Heck yea man! Have you signed up yet?
  11. I nominate someone else. Freaking slammed right now. @segathonsov?
  12. I've been working on a player/tournament manager for Tecmo tournaments for awhile. Last year, was v1 and I learned a lot. This year v2 will be in use. Having you all add players and submit results will be a piece of cake. If you have a WordPress site, you can install it and run your own as well. He is a quick snippet of the player manager tool.

    TecmoPress - Live Tournament Manager

    An update was pushed live today: You can now set a round robin format which can output to the next round: more round robin, double elim, single elim, etc. This basically makes Challonge look likes child's play in addition to it being tied specifically to the Tecmo tournament database. You will also be able to add your own game (e.g. NHL94, Street Fighter) and parameters then also submit results.
  17. So, what the heck, right? Yea, Tecmo Madison (TM) is back from the dead. Well, never really died. After receiving numerous emails, PMs, tweets, and etc from you all, we sat down to discuss where do we go from here. In a nutshell, Chet's and Josh's families + commitments outside of Tecmo have needed more attention and rightfully so. Without being able to give TM the time it deserves and needs, they decided it would be better to walk away then put out a half-baked effort. *Enter davefmurray* I am taking over the overall directing and promoting of the tournament. I have a team of awesome dudes helping out -- @Knobbe, @qb_browns, @tecmoaz & my bud Casey. qb_browns has been the tournament event director for many years and will continue to do so. Your tournament day will be just as smooth (if not smoother) as it has always been. Knobbe is helping out on the tech side. We are going to sync the TM site and T-Borg. Your records, profiles, and stats will be brought into the T-Borg world. TecmoAZ is a stream & broadcast professional in the college sports world. He will help take our media offerings up a few notches. You will see a few more cameras floating around. Casey is an event coordinator and marketing professional in the Tampa area as well as a personal friend of mine. He will be helping me with all higher level decisions and be making sure all of our offerings are top notch. Chet & Josh will still be involved. Josh will still be your MC. The book of LT is not going anywhere. All the familiar faces you've come to know will still be around. There is just a change of hands behind the scenes so we can carry the TM torch. There are lots more updates to come. As we finalize things, we will announce them. For those that want the information first, we have an email list that you can sign up for on TecmoMadison.com. Those on the list will get updates first and will get hit up directly with sign-up info when the time arrives. #TecmoXIII is going to be awesome. Let's celebrate Return of the Mack. -davefmurray Let's all be bros and talk on FB. I made a group for those interested. Join here and let's riff about the greatest tourney on Earth -- https://www.facebook.com/groups/tecmomadison
  18. It is the corrections log and will get corrected. There are bigger issues to sort through first. The ones and twos missing games will be last.
  19. The passive aggression is real. I'll look. My PM backlog is longggggg.
  20. Hey, man! Welcome! Are you in Wisconsin? To register for Madison, go here: http://tecmo.cc/XIVreg If you have any questions, fire away!

    Detroit, MI - 03/03/2018 - Detroit Tecmo Kumite VI

    I typically like your dissimilar strategy or analysis. However, I must this say that this is total nonsense. 😂😂 81/69 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 50/63. This is a massive, massive QB advantage. Burn routes for days. Marino is a drone's worst nightmare.
  22. I made a Mac app to run Brudtopia with online play capabilities. Mac users can finally play vs PC players! Audio is a bit buggy but it does not affect performance that I've noticed. Port setup and everything is the same. Reply here with any issues. It is a 300mb download and it is 645mb unzipped. You've been warned. I'll work on getting this reduced as time goes on and if people actually use this. Grab it here. In its present state, the file is too large for our Downloads section.

    (Emulator) Brudtopia - MAC - v0.1

    This is not for Mac vs Mac. You can play anyone. Head to Discord and find any opponent PC or Mac.

    (Emulator) Brudtopia - MAC - v0.1

    It works great. I run it on OS 10.13.3 without issue. I never really got feedback so not sure if all the flags work for everyone else. I'm definitely curious to know.
