ohn14_3s

We’re excited to announce yet another DIY tournament pot bonus for the OzHadou Nationals 14 today. This time it’s for Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, one of the most iconic fighting games of the OHN series. Dejan from Gold Coast Fighters is a big supporter of the game, and he’s throwing an extra $100 into the prize pool for 3S at OHN14.

There’s not much time left to register for OHN14, including the DIY tournaments. We need all DIY players to sign-up online this year so that we can minimise pool overlaps between official and DIY games. Make sure you register asap because our deadline of August 22nd, and player cap of 600 people, are both approaching fast.

OHN 14 DIY line-up announcement

I am bad

DIY tournaments have a long standing history at OHN and this year is no different. We are pleased to announce a cast of new and returning titles to the OHN14 lineup. Thank you to all who submitted applications, the unfortunate reality as always is we cant’t accept all games and it was a long and arduous process to narrow down this line-up to make sure every community gets represented. That being said, we are pleased to announce the DIY line-up for OHN 14:

  • Super Street Fighter II Turbo (Arcade)
  • Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike (Xbox 360)
  • Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (Xbox 360)
  • The King of Fighters 2002: Unlimited Match (Xbox 360)
  • The King of Fighters 98: Unlimited Match Final Edition (PC)
  • The King of Fighters XIV (casuals only, PS4)
  • Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- (PS4)
  • Persona 4 Arena Ultimax (PS3)
  • Pokken Tournament (Wii U)
  • Super Smash Bros. 64
  • Project M

Don’t forget to register for OHN14 here! DIY tournament registration will go live later this week.

Upgrading an Xbox 360 TE FightStick to Brook Universal Fighting Board

With the arrival of Street Fighter V, Australian fighting game players are looking for ways to compete in PS4 tournaments for the game with their own controller. For those that prefer arcade sticks, convenient, affordable options are in short supply. Taiwanese company Brook recently released a universal PCB which allows people to convert an existing arcade stick for direct, simple use across multiple consoles.

Stick Addiction member BeefyGoodness ordered some of these PCBs and has documented his experience installing one into a Mad Catz Tournament Edition stick for the Xbox 360. After the jump Beefy takes us through the mod process step-by-step.

If you have any questions about the mod, you can contact Ben Vanzino (BeefyGoodness) via the Stick Addiction Facebook page.
