HISTORY

The third and final version of the third installment of Capcom's flagship fighting game series. The SFIII series never came anywhere close to the same level of popularity as the original Street Fighter II, and was usually seen as a disappointment by people. And when 3rd Strike was released, it didn't really change any minds of people who wrote the series off. Despite this, the game still saw play in select parts of the world, namely Capcom's home country of Japan. Slowly but surely, people started coming around to the game over the years, with more people able to enjoy the game through console ports to systems like the Dreamcast, Playstation 2, and Xbox. But it wasn't until the EVO 2004 tournament, where one of the most memorable moments ever captured at a fighting game tournament lead to a true resurgence in the fighting game scene. Although it's lost some steam since then, there are still dedicated groups of players around the world that enjoy the game to this day.

That's all well and good, but this isn't a fighting game tournament - this is a MAME tournament. We know that not everyone is well versed in the ways of fighting games, but it is a genre that saw much representation in the arcades, and we'd like to think that the players that have made it this far can handle a fighting game. As a 1-player vs. CPU game, 3rd Strike is actually quite good - there is a respectable difficulty curve to the game, the early stages are easy but it slowly gets harder. In addition to that, you get two choices on who to fight for each stage up until the end, which lets you avoid characters you might have problems with. Finally, the scoring system isn't ridiculous - although you can get some good points by winning rounds with super art attacks, there are a lot of points to be had by clearing consecutive stages without losing a round. Hell, there's a "hidden" fight after the 7th stage where one of the prerequisites is not losing a round up to that point. Either way, I don't think this round will end with people suiciding on purpose :)

(as to how those 10 million point scores are done - I'm not exactly sure but I think it requires getting a lot of the highest grade finishes after each stage)

Although the CD-required romsets are now playable at MARP thanks to some WolfMAME-specific additions by our very own Barry Rodewald, we'll be using the sfiii3n No-CD romset for the sake of simplicity (plus it has a slightly shorter bootup time!). Do note though that this game is NOT playable in 0.106, so you will need to use WolfMAME 0.148 for this game. If you have issues running 0.148, please let us know and we'll do our best to assist you.


We're now down to the semi-finals. Of the 4 players left, who will advance to the final game?

RAX@AIVA [8] vs. nii-san [4]
*Goldtimes* [7] vs. colman paolo [3]


Good luck to everyone!

Haha, now yes that I'm happy to have lost in the previous rounds :D thanks for keeping this in the last rounds.
I would have fear even to try the first round of this beat.

Good luck for those who compete ;)

marpirc.net has been really sluggish as of the last day or so - it takes a long time to load pages. Just be patient and you'll get through eventually.

Works fine. Your score upon losing the last round was 1,815,700, but the "final score" ended up being 1,788,200. I forgot to mention that there is some weirdness in regards to what the game says is the final score, if you don't clear a stage then the score reverts to whatever your score was at the start of the stage... I think we should use highest score reached?

However I lament the lost chance :?
I could have reached the final.

Congratulations for Paolo Colman and Rax. You have deserved to play the final, no doubt.
