    I ONCE WROTE A LONG TIME AGO IN ANOTHER THREAD ON THE SAME SUBJECT:

    > it's 425 MB big now and getting bigger.

    ha, how things change...

    archive update:

    my initial figures given in the other thread were off. here they are as of 5/18/01:

    total size: 1.72 gb

    text: ~13 mb for ~300 items; conversations/posts, guides, faqs - all the old ones, with many new or previously unreleased guides and info

    images: 536 mb for ~2100 items; cg portraits, gold disk portraits, arcade flyers, screenshots, alpha/beta shots, "people" section with snapshots of many of you fugly bastiges (send in more!)

    sound: 326 mb for ~230 items; arcade vf1/2/3 and sega saturn vf1/2/k soundtracks, vf3 on the vocal, midis, vf voice samples

    movies: 870 mb for ~310 items

    web: 17 mb of archived web pages

    with one more disk full of goodies from a contributor on its way, and some final additions and cleaning up, and it'll be ready for it's initial release. so, pretty soon now.

    howEVER..

    i don't have the resources to meet the (even small) demand for this, so i suggest a chain distribution. i'll send a few copies out and then the people who recieve it can copy and send from there.

    it's ready

    finished the damn thing - at least as far as it being ready for initial release.

    2.1 GB of stuff. four CD-R's.

    i will make two copies. at this time this is all i am prepared to copy and send, because i am exceedingly poor and don't want to be an asshole by offering copies and not being able to send anyone anything.

    i suggest a chain distribution. who here a) wants this archive and b) will be able to to handle making at least a few copies and sending it to someone else who wants it? and hopefully, those others that do want it can make copies.

    lemme know...

    Re: it's ready

    I would definitely love a copy.... but I don't have the credibility to back up sending it out...

    Wish someone had at least 700MB of webspace to post an ISO/versus/images/icons/smile.gif If you want to place your bet on me, I definitely would plan to send the darn thing out... But I haven't quite proven my reliably yet (despite how certain I could send out about 4 or of these things within a few days of receiving it). If you wanna place that bet, I'm willing to WILL DO & DO IT/versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    Re: in reply to the news post:

    This is my understanding (correct me if I'm wrong):

    Beat Tribe Cup is the continuation of Athena Cup which were a series of tournaments. As far as the Beat Tribe Cup (BTC) is concerned, it's run by a specific arcade (or maybe it was a joint-effort of various arcades?). Generally assumed to be a VF tournament, I think. But there are also BT tournaments for Soul Calibur, Guilty Gear X, Third Strike, and Alpha 3 I believe.

    VF tournament is team battle played on OB mode (TB machine). Team Battle meaning that the participants play in teams against each other, each person in the team using their representative character. Player to player battles are in matches (not single round) I don't know the specific rules, but if you can read Japanese or wanna go through deciphering a translation, <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.beat-tribe.com>Beat-Tribe Page</A>. VF section is known as VFR (VF Relation I think).

    The clips that were posted on "that one Japanese site" (originally brought to light on this forum by SpodMePls in Vancouver *thanks*, then I started updating the forum whenever a new clip was rotated) were from BTC2 back in October I believe. The clips that Shota posted earlier were from the first BTC which was January 2000 (and is currently available on two tapes). My understanding is that a BTC2 tape set is in the works also/versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    The 3rd BTC will happen next month on July 29th, I believe. Man.... if I wasn't working and going to school around then, I probably would fly to Japan just to watch it in person.

    If you're interested in the history of BTC and Athena Cup, check out <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.beat-tribe.com/vfr/btcup/history/index.html>History of Athena Cup/Beat Tribe Cup</A>. If you can't read Japanese, try a translator (E-lingo seems dead, I gotta go look for that link for the altavista one or whatever it was).

    Oh yeah, going back to the clips, I believe there are 20 clips from BTC2 (there's also an extra clip in there which looks like it came from elsewhere). One of the clips doesn't have gameplay, but gives you an idea of what the tournament hall looked like at BTC2. Keep in mind it was only last year too.

    P.S. Found the altavista translation page (ran a search in the forum). Thanks Vicks for posting this earlier: <A target="_blank" HREF=http://babelfish.altavista.com>babelfish.altavista.com</A>
    Doh, putting a link for a translated page doesn't quite work, so if you wanted to see it, just run the darn thing through the babelfish site/versus/images/icons/smile.gif<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1>Edited by Chanchai on 06/20/01 00:36 AM (server time).</FONT></P>
