I have a friend in Chicago, but he hasn't had a lot of time to play a whole lot of games recently.  He loves KOF though and is definitely looking forward to playing it.  I'll see if I can get him to contact you, as he doesn't really lurk around these forums.

You're eventually going to have to take the risk of dumping money, only to lose, if you want to pick up XIII.  XIII has a really different feel when you first play it, which is why I think it doesn't matter too much which KOF you should play to prepare for XIII.  I play quite a bit of 98 on GGPO and 2002UM, and I still haven't completely adjusted to XIII, but that's mainly because I haven't played the game enough. 

You can't go wrong starting with those three characters, though Iori has changed noticeably going into XIII; he's still a very good character, regardless.  K' pretty much plays the same and Kyo plays like his '95/Kusanagi version.  All three of those characters are good, and if you REALLY can't get away from uppercutting and fireballing...I guess you'd be fine sticking with those characters.  Personally, I don't think the learning curve is so high that it'd be difficult to learn more than three characters, because I'd find it really boring to play only one to three characters ever in any fighting game.

Like in SF, spacing is very important part of the game.  KOF offers more movement options though, with hops, rolls, and backdash cancels.  That also makes a KOF match much more high paced, and rush down-based.  I think the thing that seperates KOF from SF is that most characters have tools to deal with many situations, allowing you more offensive and defensive options.

Fundamentals still apply in any KOF you play, so the Beginner's Guide still does help you learn how KOF is played.  Training mode only gets you so far though, and my suggestion is that you play a KOF, ANY KOF, with real people.  KOF is less about character matchups, and more about player matchups.  Where do you live anyway?

I have a friend in Washington that likes SNK games, and is also excited for XIII to come out.  He lives way out in the middle of nowhere, but he does try to make it to the tournaments that Jason Cole holds in Seattle, so you'll probably see him there.  I'm sure if you bring KOF to those tournaments, he wouldn't mind playing.  His handle is "YabukiStyle".

If anybody is having trouble logging into GGPO, make sure Adobe Air is up to date.  Also try deleting everything but your roms in the GGPO directory and installing the files that LouisCipher has linked.

You guys that are interested in going to ReveLAtions, please let me know within the next few days, so I can book the hotel.  Keep in mind, you'll be paying about $70 for the trip, if enough people go.  If none of you decide to go, I might as well fly there than drive.  So please make your decision as soon as possible.

I like the idea so far.  As for the youtube feature, do you think you can organize the videos by game and series of videos, like the 02UM Master Tutorials?  That would help it make look less cluttered, since you guys upload videos for many games.

Paul!  I know you're busy pushing the local event at your buddy's place but how's the XIII frontier doing?  I remember when you were down here for that week you said you can't wait till it's up in your area--we're counting on you to push that scene forward!

I'm planning on going to Southtown Arcade sometime in the upcoming weekends to see what's up.  The general consensus is that people are waiting to see how the console version turns out.  Until that happens, players are pretty much only looking at the mainstream games.  It also doesn't help that AE will be out next month, and most people going to the arcades are there to play AE.  I would like to be proven wrong, but somehow I doubt the KOF population increased any with this new arcade.
