    How about hosting PS2 replay matches, I mean they are really small in size like 36k or something for a whole match. The only downfall to this method is that one will need a mean to download the files from the PC to the PS2 memory card(shark port will do that nicely). I believe by doing so, more and more people will be able to enjoy VF4, say every now and then one can create combo exhibitions for certain characters and post it here somewhere.

    If you do this, do not get the sharkport. It's rather limiting and pretty piss poor device. You should get the EMS memory card adaptor instead. It's not only cheaper, but it gives you by far more flexibility with what you can do with it. You can find it on www.hkems.com and www.lik-sang.com. A couple people are already picking this up, so it's probably best to push this version of the memory card adaptor. One advantage is it will be easier to convert files between US and JP so that everyone can share.

    The EMS thing looks sweet .. unfortuanatly its not avaliable where am living.. I picked up the sharkport though.. and thought its good too .. maybe not as sophisticated as the EMS thingy but okayish none the less /versus/images/icons/smile.gif .


    And hey marcel, I am willing to share my replay matches with you or anyone else.. but don't expect anything special from me ( not yet atleast : ) ). I have barley made it after the switch from Tekken. :p

    Legend: The problem is the sharkport is its own format and you'll need to convert it. It's more likely that someone will develop a converter that converts the sharkport format to the data format that all the other adaptors use rather than the other way around. That's why I think we should push for this one standard on this board. The same thing happened during the PS days between the dex drive and all the other adaptors. It's a lot easier to hack the other data format as well. If you can, I honestly suggest you return it and try and get an EMS adaptor.

    So what you are saying is that if I use the sharkport to upload data from my PS2 memcard, to the PC, the thing will convert the data type to some format exlusivley used and understood by sharkport?! so like no one could download or play the replay unless he uses a sharkport to download it from the net.. right!?

    I don't know about you fellas but I'm using my VCR for the upcoming Singapore Tournament. My TV has 2 AV inputs. PS2 goes into AV input 1 and the VCR is connected via input and output 2. So all the plays will be recorded into VHS tape. After all that is done, it will be converted to MPEG via a TV tuner card I have. I will then dub each play piecemeal with headings and the such.

    Genie47 Your method is great for those who don't have a PS2 .. but the method I was talking about only works if you have the PS2 and a copy of Vf4..limiting but the good thing is that even slow modem people won't be put of by the size of the file.

    legend: Correct. Plus as far as I know, you can't use a Sharkport on a Japanese system. You can only use it on a US system. Also I don't know how to convert Sharkport save files between US and JP where as I do know how to convert the other format.

    Legend: The two links I supplied lets you order from them. Or what you could do is try to get a group of people on here and make one bulk order and distribute them that way. I just ordered five. I may have an extra, but I think they're all spoken for. I'll know in a couple days. They just arrived yesterday. Only takes two days to ship from HK.
