Welcome to 2D COn: Simulation

Welcome to 2D Con 2022: Simulation. We are excited to be back for our 7th year. When we started this event we never expected it to grow as quickly as it has and while we have experienced normal growing pains, and a year without events we’ve never stopped doing what we love, hosting a great event for great people.

The goal of 2D Con is, and always will be to provide a quality, memorable event for gamers, while raising money for charitable causes. 

This year our charity of choice is Children’s Cancer Research fund. Please help us raise funds for this wonderful charity by donating to Midwest Speedfest, the charity auction, on the 2D Con website or the 2D Con Twitch stream. 

About Children's Cancer Research Fund

Creators Against Childhood Cancer is a streaming and gaming fundraising program benefiting Children’s Cancer Research Fund. Funds raised support the brightest scientists whose ideas make the greatest impact for children with cancer. We also fund resources and programs that help families who are fighting cancer stay strong, find community, and take care of themselves. Cancer is a tricky disease – it figures out how to hide from the immune system and build up defenses against chemotherapy. Join Children’s Cancer Research Fund community of streamers to fund researchers who are more creative than cancer. By fundraising with us or donating directly, you’re helping ensure that lifesaving ideas can keep moving forward.

We have a ZERO TOLERANCE policy for harassment or discrimination. This includes, but is not limited to sexual harassment, verbal harassment, stalking, assault, battery, intimidation or bullying. If you are found to be harassing someone most of the time we will speak with all involved parties to see if we are able to come to a resolution that does not involved any action.

  • Physical appearance
  • Disabilities
  • Religious belief
RESPECT PRONOUNS – Mistakes happen, and that is understandable. Do your best to refer to people as their proper pronoun. Using they/them when meeting new people is a great way to avoid any mistakes.

2D Con is an all ages event until 10pm, all we ask is that you follow the nudity and public decency laws of Minneapolis and be aware that children are present.

Breastfeeding is allowed  in public space, we also have a quiet room available. 

In the rare instance we find your outfit to be an issue one of our staff members will speak with you. 

We encourage cosplayers to carry props, sometimes they complete the costume. We do have a few general guidelines.

  • All propers are subject to “peace bonding” 
  • If it has a functioning trigger it is not allowed, this includes airsoft, water guns, nerf guns, toy guns and of course real guns.
  • No live steel or metal. If it is sharp or hard it will not be allowed.
  • Bows are allowed if they have been rendered incapable of firing by removing the string. Compound bows, or hunting bows are not allowed.
  • Large props are allowed as long as you are aware of your surroundings. If at any point you need to store your prop please speak with registration.

Any imagery that is considered offensive or that will make people uncomfortable is not allowed.

This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Nazi or other supremacist organizations
  • Vulgar imagery
  • Sexist imagery
  • Overly violent or gory imagery
  • Political imagery if used as a means to provoke

Anyone caught spreading or displaying anything blatantly offensive may be subject to revocation and removal from the event.

Most of use are adults and we all have fun in different ways. Our drug and alcohol policy is as lenient as possible, we aren’t the police. We only have a few common sense rules.

  • Do not smoke in the hotel, this includes vaping. There are designated spots outside of the hotel for smoking.
  • If you are smoking anything illegal you are doing so at your own discretion, please do this away from the hotel property.
  • If odor becomes and issue we may ask you to leave and to return at a later time.
  • Underage drinking is prohibited.
  • If you are visibly intoxicated we may:
    • Ask you to leave and call you a driver.
    • Have you sit in our quiet room until you sober up.
    • Send you back to your hotel room.
    • Call your parents… we don’t want to do this.

Tournament Rules

The most important thing about tournaments is that they are meant to be fun. While we encourage playful banter, we do not allow offensive language (see discrimination and harassment above)

You are expected to show up to the designated tournament area twenty minutes prior to the scheduled start time. Failure to do so may result in disqualification or forfeit. 

You must be a registered attendee of 2D Con to participate in any tournament. 

Tournament registration for some games start prior to the event, and certain tournaments may fill up before the event. For these tournaments there may be a limited amount of on-site sign ups. 

If a player is disqualified prior the tournament, we will fill their spot on a first come first serve basis. 

No one likes a cheater, if you are caught cheating you will automatically be disqualified. Depending on the severity you may also be removed from the event.

If you are accused of cheating, and feel that you did not cheat, tournament staff will review and decide on a fair outcome.

Cheating includes, but is not limited to;

  • Certain controller modifications.
  • Collusion with other players or spectators.
  • Use of any software that gives you an unfair advantage such as aim-bots, or wallhacks.
  • Screen watching.

Each game will have it’s own set of rules. Cheating reports are handled on a case-by-case basis.

There are a few reasons why you may be bringing your own equipment to 2D Con, we encourage this and even recommend it in some instances. Different equipment has different policies. 

2D Con is not responsible for any lost or damaged items.

PC

Bringing your own PC is great, and is required for certain tournaments. We understand that you don’t want to leave your PC unattended while you enjoy the event. We will have limited space to store your items.

Your PC may be subject to a health check, these are non-intrusive and include scanning for malware prior to connecting to the network. Nothing will be installed on your PC.

2D Con is not liable for any damage or loss of items, please keep an eye on your PC and make sure you know it’s status at all times.

We do ask that you use the below list as a guideline when bringing your PC:

  • Make sure it is clear of Malware, or anything that may slow the network.
  • Bring your own keyboard and mouse, if you want to guarantee a spot you will also want to bring a monitor.

If you are going to step away from your PC – lock it (Win+L) or log-off and have someone you know and trust keep an eye on it for you.

There are designated spots for PC set ups,they are limited. You will want to arrive early to guarantee a spot. Please keep your equipment in your dedicated spot.

If you are going to be away from your PC for more than 4 hours and are not registered for a PC tournament, we ask that you remove your equipment and store it in your car or with 2D Con. Space is very limited.

Controllers and Joysticks

It is highly recommended that you bring your own controller and/or joystick. We only have a limited amount and can not guarantee functionality, battery life, or availability. 

Please bring your controller to the tournament organizer for approval, prior to the tournament. 

Controller modifications that give you an unfair advantage are not allowed. These include, but are not limited to macro or turbo buttons. 

Each tournament will have it’s own set of specifications on what is allowed.

Sometimes equipment fails. Games can freeze, and controllers can stop responding.

If this happens you have the option to restart the current match. You must used the same exact settings and/or characters as the previous match.

If the console or controller is failing, or dead we will do our best to obtain a new one.

If a new one is not available the tournament may end prematurely. 

covid-19 safety measures

Below is a breakdown of this year’s attendee guidelines, and the measures we will be taking. The last thing we want to do is put anyone’s health at risk. We realize that some of these seem overboard, but we want to be as safe as possible.

Masks will be required in all event spaces. We will have a VERY limited amount of disposable masks available. If you forget your mask there is a Target a few blocks north of the venue that will have masks available for purchase.

13+: Wear a mask in all 2D Con event spaces
Show proof of at least half vaccination OR a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours prior to the event

Between 6 and 12: Wear a mask in all 2D Con event spaces

5 and Under No current rules apply

MASK EXCEPTIONS:

  • Children 5 and under.
  • Eating, drinking, or taking medication for brief periods of time;
  • Communicating for brief periods of time with a person who is hearing impaired when the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication;
  • When experiencing difficulty breathing or shortness of breath or feeling winded, until able to resume normal breathing with the mask; or if wearing a mask interferes with necessary medical care such as supplemental oxygen administered via an oxygen mask.
  • Masks will be optional for vaccinated staff working in a role where they are socially distanced and or need to be wearing a mic.
  • When on stage for performances, karaoke or the cosplay contest.
  • When having your photograph taken for cosplay at our designated photo booth, or socially distanced – please do not stop for photos in hallways.
  • When positioned behind a table that allows for social distancing (Vendors, Artists)

Due to venue policy we are unable to require masks in any public areas of the hotel. This includes spaces such as the hotel lobby, the registration line, or any hallway excluding the hallway to the main gaming room. We strongly encourage masks in ALL places.

The following only applies to ages 13+

Due to current CDC guidance being vaccinated against COVID-19 or having a negative test taken within 72 hours of the convention is required.

It is the easiest and safest way to handle the variants and keep community spread low. If you are not currently vaccinated, and are able to be, there are many places offering walk-in vaccinations to the general public. Having just 1 poke prior to 2D Con is better than none! You can find a location to receive the vaccine here: https://mn.gov/covid19/vaccine/find-vaccine/locations/index.jsp .

The Johnson & Johnson Vaccine is a single dose vaccine that takes two weeks to reach 77% effectiveness – This is the best option to ensure you, and the people around you are safe.

If you are unable to be vaccinated, we require that you do your part to keep this event safe and have a negative COVID test taken within the last 72 hours. There are many places to receive a rapid test prior to the convention. Many of the test locations do not require an appointment.

You can find a location to receive a rapid test on the MN COVID-19 Response page:
https://mn.gov/covid19/get-tested/testing-locations/index.jsp

Upon check-in with registration you will asked some basic screening questions and may have your temperature taken. These questions aren’t meant to prevent you from attending the convention, but as a way for us to gather useful information such as percentage of vaccinated attendees.

The questions will be non-intrusive.

Example questions:

  • Are you vaccinated?
  • Have you had a fever within the last 7 days?
  • Have you traveled from a State or Country with a high infection rate within the last 14 days?
  • Have you had a positive COVID test within the last 14 days?

There will be a variety of sanitation items in all rooms.

This may include:

  • Hand sanitizer
  • Sanitizing spray and paper towels
  • Sanitizing wipes

These items will be available for use. While we will be cleaning at set intervals, we ask that you sanitize equipment before and after use. We also request that you come prepared with your own hand sanitizer in case we do not have enough!

Arcade and pinball machines: Use the available sanitizing spray and a paper towel to wipe down buttons and joysticks – DO NOT SPRAY DIRECTLY ON THE MACHINE! – We can not stress this enough. Use a minimal amount of spray directly on the paper towel.

Consoles: Return the controller to the console desk and our staff will sanitize the controllers.

PC: When you are finished using a PC, flip the keyboard upside down and our staff will sanitize the station.

Microphones: Wipe down with a sanitizing wipe.

*For Karaoke specifically we will be using single use mic caps for each singing!
*Upon entrance to any room you may be asked to use hand sanitizer. 

PLEASE ONLY USE THE PROVIDED SANITIZING SOLUTIONS – OTHER SOLUTIONS MAY DAMAGE EQUIPMENT

Performing on stages alongside national acts like Migos, Logic, Tyler The Creator, and The Wu Tang Clan Nur-D is well on his way to becoming a house hold name.

Theology

Hey everyone! I don’t like 3rd person bios so I’m gonna speak to you directly. My name is Theølogy and I am a VGM Remix producer and DJ from Lexington, Kentucky. Believe it or not, a few nerds exist here 🙂 I have been DJing and producing for 15 years and I am a veteran of the trance scene (my previous music being supported by Above & Beyond, Cosmic Gate, and Fatum), but I also create every single genre of EDM. My remixes are melodic and beautiful (as video game music is) but I combine this nuance with really uplifting chords and incredibly dirty bass

Do A Barrel Roll

Have you ever noticed how some songs sound like other songs? See a cover band like you've never seen before! Do a Barrel Roll! is a videogame music band with a mission unlike any other--to SMASH together VGM classics, deep cuts, and unexpectedly similar music from the popular realm into a beautiful ear stew. This 5-piece act is focused on tight grooves, exciting arrangement ideas, and high-level musicianship.

The Masters of Unlocking

We are a video game music band from Austin, TX!

Growing up in the era of the Nintendo and Super Nintendo we spent a lot of time playing video games! Many Friday nights were spent trying to finish that one last level or beat that last boss, only taking breaks to get another slice of pizza until we could finally raise our hands in victory as we passed the finish line ahead of our friend who was determined to beat us on the next track. Video games were a large part of our social lives but we didn’t yet realize that the music from those games was going to be an  influencing factor in our musical lives. As the years passed our interest in music grew. We picked up guitars wanting to learn how to play the riffs from our favorite Rush and Metallica songs and to maybe even start a band of our own one day.

And now The Masters of Unlocking have arrived, paying tribute to the games we grew up with, the games being made today, and the composers that have left a lasting musical legacy  within those games that we feel is greatly under appreciated!

Nitrowave Twin Cities

Nitrowave Twin Cities is a group of retro-themed electronic musicians from the Twin Cities dedicated to promoting, supporting, and creating outreach within their community.

MATT SILVERBERG (MARIMBA MATT)

Video game enthusiast Matt Silverberg is an accomplished percussionist, composer, and educator. His compositions have been featured at numerous events such as his percussion quintet Hypnotic Crystals being selected as a winner for the 2017 Wisconsin Alliance for Composers (WAC) New Music Festival and the large chamber version of Silver Filled Dreams being featured on a panel at the MidWest Band Clinic in December of 2020. He’s had commissions ranging from percussion ensemble, chamber works, full wind ensemble, and orchestra.

THE ARKADIAN

The Arkadian is a solo/group act based out of OKC that writes songs about video games in the style of 80s heavy metal. The band was founded in 2016 by frontman Jon O’Neal while in Boston and their first live show was at PAX East 2018. Since then, the project taken the gaming community by storm with the release of their 2019 album, “Playing With Power” and an epic catalog of tunes following after.

DJ PHATZO

DJ Phatzo is the first speedrunner to sequence break the rap game. A nerdcore artist from Wisconsin, current Earworm Entertainment affiliate, and a member of Midwest Speedfest.

 

Entertainment

2D Concert

Video games have some of the best soundtracks, from large budget AAA games like Skyrim and the Legend of Zelda to smaller independent games like Undertale and Ori and the Blind Forest, the unique sounds span generations.
