Custom Control schemes allowed only within the settings menu of SSF4, so if it can be set from the pause menu, it is allowed(ie throw button, taunt button, PPP, KKK, etc), and as a result the first round of a bracket for those players will have a dry match(no contest) to set/check controls. After which players go back to character select & choose their characters & start their matches.
Players are allowed to switch characters between matches.
Can I buy back in after elimination?
Can we use d-pad controllers?

This will be the second tournament held at this venue, which is my home, so I have the right to refuse entry or kick out anyone I believe might be or has been a cause for concern.
My wife and roommate have the same authority as stated above (Bottom line, be respectful and abide by the rest of the rules)
