I wouldnt let people play BF1942 over the net, it eats bandwidth totally. Have a big screen showing the tournament games, with someone being spectator and moving the camera around.

God i wish there was somewhere like this near me, id be there all the time.

Cornfields everywhere...
What are you planning on using the PS2's for? I reccommend getting a few multitaps . You can search for games compatible with the multitap here . I think this would be a great way to increase your revenue without spending too much dough. And it wouldn't hog any bandwith either. Lemme know what you think and good luck - I think your idea has loads of potential.

Infinity:
a dedicated T1 will be able to handle BF1942 easy at about 40% utilization. Trust me, I've worked out every last detail you could imagine as far as that goes. We have a 50" hdtv TV that will of course be able to view any computer (mirroring) for tourneys and so on.

dashocker:
Right now we have 2 ps2's w/ the i-link and both have ethernet adaperts for online gaming. Haven't had time to look into the multitap thing. Main focus right now is the gaming PC's and the games we'll be having. Don't want to lose site of our main objective.

So as far as updates we went and looked at 8 different retail locations. Everything should be settled about teusday-wednesday of next week. I'm very dissapointed in how long it took to get a place though. I need this place to be opened ASAP.

later
