Dual stick mod video tutorial, how to install a TEasy

SpeedBrkr mentioned an excellent video tutorial by Purplearms showing how to install a TEasy in under 30 minutes. Everything is done in real time, so you might want to skip around a little if you're not following along.

The TEasy is a solderless dual stick mod you can place in a Mad Catz Tournament Edition FightStick.

Doing so will of course void your warranty, but if you want the ability to use one joystick on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. This is an effective solution, and if you don't mind poking around the innards of your stick, it's relatively painless.

Problem with Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition, Sven hypes Street Fighter 3 Online

Problem with Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition, Sven hypes Street Fighter 3 Online Capcom's Yoshinori Ono and Christian Svensson made a few posts recently. First off, Ono mentions that there was a problem discovered with Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition and that it may miss its mid-December release date.

Yoshinori added that fans should expect an announcement regarding the release schedule of the new DLC costumes for the home versions of SSF4, though.

Also, Christian Svensson jumped into the fray to build a bit of hype up for Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition. Here's everything.

Ono: Wow, we have found a big problem [with] SSFIV AE today!! We should correct it. Will I make it in time?

Oh no, not like Gran Turismo 5, please Ono...

Ono: Hahaha, no problem! We can work it out!! ;P

Today [in the] evening [in Japan], the Official SSFIV's blog will announce [a new] delivery schedule [for] DLC costumes!! Everyone's [feedback] was carried to us!! ;D

Will Street Fighter III: Online Edition include new content?

Svensson: You'll find out... next year (which, since we're in November, isn't THAT far away). ;)

Unfortunately, we're not yet talking about the features or content of the game, as excited as I am about it. I'm going to have to keep you in suspense a bit longer.

Again, if I'd had my way, you wouldn't know about this title yet, so the suspense wouldn't be killing you just yet, but alas, we announced it just as the project was starting.

Community news roundup for November 4th

Community news roundup for November 4th

• LiangHuBBB posted another video in his series of funny and cool moments in Super Street Fighter 4.

• That1nega sent in a Gen combo and instructional video for SSF4. Despite the game being out for awhile now, this is still a character that doesn't get a lot of limelight, so it's nice to see a bit more about him.

• Keeping with the Gen theme, Azahel showed how it's possible to avoid some projectiles with Gen's Crouching Medium Kick in SSF4 when in Crane Stance.

• The original Street Fighter 2 arcade game, with touch screen controls, is now available on the Apple application store free of charge. This is a 'freemium' requiring you to either buy more tokens or purchase the inexpensive title to keep playing after awhile, but if you have an iPhone, iPad Touch or iPad, this is definitely worth checking out. Here's some gameplay footage.

• SitverGold created a SSF4 combo video for Seth.

• ChoBo sent in a Balrog vs. Balrog SSF4 mirror match showing why you should never give up during a fight, at least when you have a fully charged Turnaround Punch ready.

• Ruu made a video showing how to land a cross up Air Hurricane Kick into Ultra 1 with Ryu, when your opponent is cornered.

• Just like Capcom Europe, Capcom USA is also running an art contest for Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

• ComboVid.com has an interview with community member Ed Ma.

• YogaFlame24 sent in a Street Fighter dance video that a group called the Hygh Definytion Crew put on for Halloween.

Special Edition of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in the works, art contest

Special Edition of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in the works, art contest On Capcom Europe's website, an art contest was announced with a terrific prize, but another bit jumped out as well. Here's the blurb:

Capcom UK will select the best piece of artwork and the winning entry will receive either a PS3 or Xbox 360, a copy of Marvel Vs Capcom 3, a framed print of their winning entry and could have their entry featured in the art book to be released with the special edition of Marvel Vs Capcom 3: Fate Of Two Worlds!

It looks like Capcom Europe confirmed a special, or collector's edition, of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 with their announcement today.

This is something Capcom has talked about doing on a number of occasions, but it sounds like plans are much more concrete now. Details beyond what this edition will offer, besides the art book, of course aren't available, but it's nice to see that fans who want to purchase something more with their game will be able to do so, at least in Europe.

Thanks to Zonic for pointing this out.
