Hey guys,

If you live close to Texas, this might be of interest to you. The original topic is over on UQMF and it seems the author has discussed this with TFB as well. If you've been playing NetMelee for years, this is probably your chance to stomp all over the competition. and if not, you might want to practice on-line first, with our delightful crew of motley warriors at #uqm-arena. How do you get there? Well, just follow these instructions!

Hello Star Control Fans!

I just wanted to drop in to let you know about a free Star Control II Super Melee tournament we are hosting on August 13th between 1PM and 6PM at Game Over Videogames @ The Park North Shopping Center in San Antonio, Tx!

Besides hosting the tournament just for fun and bringing the Star Control community together this tournament will also be video taped and sent to Toys for Bob! Not only will they be able to enjoy the tournament with us but also use the footage to convince "the powers that be" that Star Control 3 should be the next project that Toys for Bob should work on! Let's show them (Activision) how much fun this phenomenal game can be! If you have any questions post here and I will try to answer as quickly as possible. Also for more information or directions to the tournament site you can call 1-210-366-4263.

The rules are simple:

1. Each match will have teams of 150 points or less until the finals which will have teams of 200 points or less.
2. The Thraddash have been banned from the tournament.

The Prizes:
1. $75.00 gift certificate to Game Over Videogames
2. $25.00 gift certificate to Game Over Videogames
3. A possible congratulatory certificate of some sort from Toys for Bob! I've been talking to Alex Ness about this but, This is not confirmed yet!

Thanks for taking a look and hope to see you there!!!!

I'm sorry, this must be a terrible ailment to carry in life ;)

On a more serious note, we need to get a dark background, like the one used over on UQMF.

Well that's an easy 75 bucks if I ever saw them.

I had a sense of dejection when I read the "In Texas" bit of the title. Damnabit!

Almost every Entertainment based forum I've been too uses a dark background, and for good reason. Dark colors are much more audacious and saturated then brighter colors. Dark gives a greater feeling of enlightenment, customization, and excitement. Dark colors are the colors that bring communities together! Besides, Black represents space....And Space is cool. {If you could get a StarControl 2 GUI style theme for the forum, that'd be even better}

I don't suppose there's anything you guys can do to check the authenticity of this tournament or give me an idea of how many people will be attending?

Pretty much. It would be a turkey shoot. Wait wait wait. This is on the 3DO? How does Super Melee work on a 3DO controller? And the rule list seems to imply that we would be playing with duplicates allowed, which I'd be willing to put up with but that's going to make things a little weird.

Well, the event takes place in San Antonio, Texas. According to their webpage, the contact info for that store is

Code:
410 @ San Pedro (near Alamo Drafthouse and Sears) 
602 NW Loop 410, Suite #111   
San Antonio, TX  78216   210-366-GAME (4263)
Store Hours: Mon-Sat 11am-9pm; Sun 12pm-7pm


I'm guessing your best bet is to cal lthe store to see what kind of crowd they are anticipating.
