Torin is actually StarPlatinum87.
Given the lack of good western Raiden players, that was the conclusion I came to after asking the question. Odd that he would use Torin instead of the name we usually known him online as.
Torin is his real name.

I'm not sure but I think Schooly D knows her.

Can't wait for the next one! It was fun practicing before they started. Really wish I got a few games against you Kirk. Sort of funny. I don't remember names or faces, but once I played some people I remembered them.

Damn I want those hori twin sticks now.

Do you have DC Twin Sticks? Those are easy to mod.

I bought a set of saturn sticks from tommy. problem is they slide around on my desk. Don't think DC sticks will be that different. maybe I need to find a twin stick clamp or something.

A clamp is a common solution. Another solution I heard recently from VOTwinstick (he was at the tournament with the cool custom DC sticks) is to coat the stick base with liquid electrical tape. When dry it is quite sticky and it should stick to the desk well. It's very cheap and can easily be reapplied when it wears out. Another solution he suggested is to add some weights to the stick.

It's hard to find random games. It's best to set something up beforehand (forum, Facebook, email, text, whatever).

Gonna post this here since I didn't want to spam up the Summer Jam thread with too much Vector Strike talk:
Porcupine wrote:I looked at the stream chat for a few seconds but then I ignored it. One thing that bothers me about video streams or uploads is that I rarely think the video quality is acceptable. Other people said the stream was better for them but I rarely got more than 10 frames/sec, with low resolution and a lot of MPEG artifacts.

I wish all uploads were 60 frames/sec.
I was getting straight 60 frames during Vector Strike, dunno what happened with you. There was some stuttering during VO4 so I had to switch the quality from 'Source' to 'High' (30 frames only), but during VOOT I was watching at Source quality with no hitches.
