July 03, 2008, 11:25:24 AM - ORIGINAL POST -

I'm going to be operating pretty much all of the music gaming for Kumoricon 2008.  Here's what we'll definitely have:

1. 4 DDR tournaments: Standard, Heavy, Expert, and Team.  Details for all of those should be up shortly.
2. 2 Guitar Hero 3 tournaments: Hard and Expert.
3. a Rock Band "Battle of the Bands", with judges.

Games available for free play throughout the convention:
Guitar Hero (all versions)
Rock Band
DDR* (will be run through StepMania so everything's universal and we don't waste time swapping discs, but we'll be using songs and charts from the US and Japanese PS2 games we'll have there and I'll rig up my cabinets so that you can use them with a PS2 if someone from Konami shows up and threatens suit.)

I've asked our Director of Programming to talk to Kyle Ward about Pump Pro, and I've asked a few people to bring JPS2's and Pop'n, IIDX, and PPP games.  I've also requested that one of our con JPS2's be available to people wishing to play those games.

This should be a great year for Kumoricon's rhythm gaming if some of you dudes come along.  I'd love to see you there!

PS, the DDR team tournament will have a total prize value of about $2500.  More if I can get some of the sponsorships I'm after.  Just lettin' you know.

EDIT: Apparently, there's been some confusion.  There is no cash prize; all the prizes will be stuff I make or stuff from sponsors.  If you're looking for a cash prize, I intend to run a standalone tournament event in late October if I'm faring well in the world, so consider keeping your calendar open around then.

EDIT2: Those wishing to run additional tournaments may do so, but should plan on providing the system, controllers, and games and will not be guaranteed any prizes.

if kidwhatever gets his booth issues sorted out (diskowarp records), you should connect with him and say hello.  he's one of the old school DDR players from oregon and had some of his music in ITG and has some of his music in new DDR.

Expert = ITG?

Out of respect for what you're trying to do here I will be attending. I still have PPP and Pop'n stuff if your other sources don't work out.

Great!  If you do happen to bring stuff in, you can just check it in at the front desk, and the Yojimbo (security) and game room staff will keep it safe. (I didn't realise that until my third con; I kept it under a table right in front of me the whole time and took it with me wherever I went.  That was such a pain. Tongue

Ethan, Expert, in this case, is ITG-expert.  It's basically a tournament for everyone better than me.  In fact, that's exactly what it is, since the initial qualifier is to beat me on any song. (I don't want to sort through a bunch of weeaboos who can't pass Max 300 who think they can stand a chance against the real crowd that tournament's aimed towards.  The play level will be kept in the 9-11 range, peaking with 12's, and 13's if everyone's chill with it. (I probably won't have any 14's though unless I pick up some licenses.)

Now for the HUGE cross-post:

NOTE: I am now organising ALL music games for the time being.  Since I don't play a lot of Harmonix games, I appreciate all input.  I also appreciate input regarding how I can better run Pop'N music, IIDX, and ParaParaParadise.

NOTICE (DDR TEAM and BATTLE OF THE BANDS): Bands and Teams should make an effort to plan heavily for these events.  A game room schedule will be made available as soon as possible for planning convenience.  Bands MUST consist of all 4 positions (a person may play an instrument as well as vocals if necessary), Teams MUST meet the requirement of at least 3 players, 1 of which must fit appropriately into the "Trick" bracket, once of which must fit appropriately into the "Maniac" bracket, and one of which must be able to play at a difficulty level of at least 11 "feet" ("Demon" bracket).
Online pre-registration for these events may be made available.

STAFF/VOLUNTEER NOTICE: I need an AM DJ (6am to 1pm), and Afternoon DJ (1am to 8pm), and a PM DJ (8pm to close) for Saturday and Sunday and a Monday DJ for all day Monday.  If you want to do this, please make sure you register as staff or volunteer, attend programming and general meetings, and contact both DancingTofu and Jamiche personally.  The job consists of watching people play rock band while sitting at a desk, so it's not a high-stress job, you just need to be THERE and AWAKE and there needs to be an apparent LINE.  It is recommended that this person have some unofficial assistants to help them out.  A Yojimbo may be available at times to assist with crowd control.

THE FOLLOWING GAMES will be available for free play throughout the convention:
Verified Games:
DDR/ITG - US Home Versions for PS2 and PS1 with pads (check-out)
DDR/ITG - StepMania, using songs and charts present on games owned by or lent to the operator or liscensed for semi-commercial use by the operator.
BeatMania - US Home Version for PS2 with controllers. (check-out)
Rock Band - For either XBox 360 or PS3, operated by a staff member
Guitar Hero - versions unknown; if you want to be sure a certain version is there, bring in your own copy and check it in with our staff.

Unverified games:
BeatMania II DX - Japanese Home Versions for PS2 with controllers. (check-out)
Pop'n Music - Japanese Home Versions for PS2 with controller. (check-out)
Dance ManiaX: Revival TOFU (DMXRTOFU) - Through StepMania using songs from DDR, DMX, PPP, IIDX, DM/GF, ITG, PIU, and Licenses; using charts from DMX, DDR, and Custom made.
Pump It Up or Pump It Up: PRO (Arcade cabinet)
Guitar Freaks
Drum Mania
other rhythm games

The following tournaments will be held, assuming enough people sign up for each one (these tournaments do not cost anything to enter, but you have a con membership for 2008):
Prizes not provided by the Convention are donations from other sources.  The Convention is in no way associated with the donors due to any donation for prizes, nor is the Convention responsible for the content of any prizes.  If a donated prize involves pirated or stolen software or hardware, it will be rejected.  Those donating prizes will be credited personally and/or as a business entity.  Those wishing to donate with the intent of advertising should contact our Director of Relations at

 2. When you sign up, do NOT close anything.  Follow all instructions.

B. QUALIFIERS (Trick, Maniac, Demon)
 1. There will be between 5 and 10 qualifiers for each tournament.
 2. Competitors may play any qualifier any number of times, and update their scores as needed.
 3. Qualifiers should be reported as a number, as follows:
I. Number of Combo Breakers (Miss, Boo, Good) for TRICK.
II. Number of Non-Perfects (Miss, Boo, Good, Great, NG) for MANIAC and DEMON.  The number of Freezes will be listed for each song in the sign-up file so you can calculate NG's.
 4. If you play a qualifier for multiple tournaments, you will be called for the tournament where you seed highest.
 5. Certain qualifier scores may overqualify or underqualify a player.  Please familiarise yourself with the listed "peak" levels and register appropriately.

 1. All convention and hotel policies will be maintained during the tournament.
 2. Players are to remain present until the tournament has concluded or forfeit their placement.
I. After being disqualified, a player may notify Dancing Tofu that they are leaving and do so.

I. except in the team tournament.
II. In the case that a song exceeds the MINIMUM PEAK, it must be played at a lower difficulty level.

 1. Peaks are the highest level of difficulty where a player can pass most songs.
I. For 10's and above, certain DDR songs will be re-rated for this purpose.
 2. Play bracket is the bracket in which most songs should be played.

I think I'm definitely down for showing up to Kumoricon knowing that this will be there.  I might look for some people to do team.

 ... What time / day should I show up?
Read July 20, 2008, 01:17:49 AM #7

I've requested Saturday for the Demon and Trick brackets and Sunday for the Maniac and Team.  The schedule should be available to me soon, so I can let people know for sure then, but figure either Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

EDIT: So, I figure I should let people know that my funding right now is zip; I'm relying on money coming from PSP modding and painting my grandparents' house to fund this, 'cause it seems nobody wants DDR pads any more, so the team tournament prizes may have to be scaled down if I don't get all the sponsors I'm looking for.

I would totally take a ddr pad.. too bad I can't make it on Sunday =/
Read July 28, 2008, 12:19:06 AM #9

So, I'm hopefully going to know the exact schedule really soon.  If not, I'll be prepared to bust some balls.

EDIT: Using mDawg's ITG2 build instead of regular StepMania.  Current songlist is 726 songs.

So I figure this is important; I finally got to see the rough draft of the schedule, and we got FUCKED.  3 hours for all DDR.  I'm trying to get this expanded to 12 hours, but if it doesn't happen, there will be no DDR tournaments at Kumoricon; I'm going to talk to Ground Kontrol about holding a series of tournaments there some time (I've talked to Art about this already; I'd be setting up 2 StepMania machines and 4 pads on the stage) in September or October.  Because some people have already made plans to come to Kumoricon for these tournaments, people will be able to register on a team as well as any of the 1v1 brackets free with their Kumoricon 2008 badge in hand.  Otherwise, it will be $10 for any of the 1v1 or $50 per team/$10 per player.

If we can't get the space courtesy of GK, it'll cost me an additional $250 and I'll be about $900 in the hole from all this, so I'll be banking on people coming and saying "wow, I love these pads/cabinets; can I buy one?"  I'll also be banking on a shitton of people coming.

Hopefully we can get it worked out with Kumoricon, but if not, I really want to keep you all as in-the-know as I can.

Got a response from the Programming Manager; I'm trying to get the Music Gaming run on a separate schedule from the Console Gaming.

I finally got around to getting all the official DDR songs I have typed out.  This is a current, but not final mix.  I'm going to look for a few other songs individually, like The Shining Polaris, and Un Deux Trois, and if you notice than any of YOUR favourite official DDR songs aren't on this list.  This is less than half of all the official songs in existence (566/1200+)

All DDR [ITG2] tournaments (including the preliminaries; schedule posted below) will be sponsored collaboratively by VISO and Dancing Tofu Gaming.  You will see products from both of these local businesses used in all the tournaments, with an approximate retail value of $4500 worth of product present and $2800 worth of product given as prizes.  Both of these establishments are going out on a limb here, and your support would be appreciated.  Representatives from DTG will be present at the convention at all times on all three days.  A representative from VISO may be present at the convention at some point. (I should know tomorrow after I go in to pick up the product from VISO)

Looks like Disko Warp Records managed to get a booth again this year at Kumoricon.  I'll be at PAX this year though, but hopefully it comes together well.

Disko Warp's one of the standards; I'd be shocked if they weren't there; same with Darkhorse and Sakuracon.

So wait, this is next Saturday? So soon. I have my final the day before...

So yeah my attendance is up in the air right now. Right now I can barely afford the cost, and on top of that a bunch of my friends are leaving the country on or around this day. We'll see.

You better both be there.  If either of you miss it, I'm going to rape cats and hang them from your doorways.

One day attendance = $25 IIRC. Tongue

I am pretty sure I can go.

I don't really like anime, so hopefully the girls in costumes and opportunities for hotel room shenanigans will make up for that.

If you can secure me one ATTRACTIVE girl in cosplay I will certainly go.

Otherwise it looks like the only thing I have to worry about is the money and I think I can work around that...

edit: Just dealt with the money. ALRIGHT ASSHOLES I GUESS I'LL GO.

One of the VISO reps is going to be a hot girl in Cosplay.  I don't know if Alex has figured out a costume for her yet though. Tongue

Anyway, as long as you don't need to have said attractive girl in cosplay, it's not a problem.

Don't need it but definitely would be added incentive so that if something else came up I would ditch it to get with the cosplayer.

So, apparently I suck at living.  I made four flawless DDR Pad frames and spent over $300, tried to wire them up and wound up with a disaster in my garage and seven dead controller chips. (I could swear I only owned six) Anyway, I'm going to be busting my ass tomorrow morning trying to make the best cabinet I possibly can to redeem myself as much as possible, then I'll be modding the hell out of the con's CF's once I get there around 4ish.  I'll try to set them up with bars (sort of; I'm actually using 2x4's lol), because I like bars, but can't guarantee that will get done.

We've still got a fuckton of VISO, but if you were hoping to try out some of my pads, I hope you're accustomed to disappointment.

Sorry to disappoint. . . again.  I'm not going to mess with DDR pads any more; I'm going to see if I can sell my designs to CF, MMB, or Logitech and start focusing on school again after this.

If anyone can make a killer pad with the frames, they're yours.  I want to see them turn into something fantastic, because I put a lot into them; I just don't have the wiring skills nor (at this point) the motivation.

Sad to hear that it didn't work out for you after all that work you put into it. Sad

Zeppy's gonna take the frames.  Here's the only cool thing I made after all that:

Had two of those setups.  The bars wound up working really well, and only costing a couple bucks each.  The plywood made up the bulk of the cost. Tongue

Once Zeppy finishes making the frames into pads, we'll work on getting some pics and vids up.  I think he'll be able to do a lot more with them than I would.

Kumoricon went really well.  More GOOD DDR players than any past year except possibly 2005, even though the total turnout for the tournament was 14.  Hopefully we'll see more people signing up for the tournament next year, because I'm going to work on getting the tournaments set up with a little more attention geared toward them. (working on getting them run separate from the game room, which will allow me to have the tournaments ready to start on time and then I can run them with no delays and no hassle.  I can also have some snacks and drinks in the room so that nobody will be tempted to leave unless they need to pop out to use the restroom.)

I want to see lots of you there next year, okay?  I'll be running Guitar Hero and Rock Band next year as well, so be sure to bring yourselves and your friends for those too!  If enough people ask for it, we're willing to run BeatMania and DanceManiaX* tournaments too.
