Anyone interested? I'm on vacation so any day this week is fine, 9:00 AM Japan time.
By retro, I mean: Do any of you use fightcade, and if so, interested in doing some Zero 2 or Zero 3, or CVS2 or something?

If not, SFV/Strive is fine too.

I CANíT BELIEVE MY EYES! GO FOR BROKE!

My body is ready for Zero 3 on Jan 15 JST / Jan 14 EST. Rugal, if you can swing either an hour earlier or later start itís a little easierÖany chance?

Either way, Fightcade worked great when we tried it the other week, and Iíd love to play with our Cafe dojo! If, like us, you were having trouble getting games to run, this tool is very helpful.

Have you guys got a Discord or something for communications leading up to lagfest? I recall one of you mentioning experimenting with it.

If not just posting here would be delightful!

Can I figure out how to run fightcade and navigate discord before the weekend? Probably not. But I'll give it the ol' college try!

Fightcade is ridiculously simple to install and get running compared to GGPO and the more intensive configuration required to get it running. There's even a MacOS native version unlike GGPO.

Start here.

Discord. . . allegedly I have an account. It was hacked yesterday apparently looking at the e-mail chain. I notified the company and just requested they shut it down. I have no record of the account, which I probably used as a one-off for my ADD afflicted chums who gleefully jump from platform to platform instead of remaining true to Internet Relay Chat.

I need to create a bot of myself so I can remain on IRC posthumously.

Everyone's favorite announcer sez: "BEAT 'EM UP, GUY! THIS IS STREET FIGHTER ZERO 3!"

Time: Jan. 15 (Sa) 10AM JST / Jan. 14 (F) 8PM EST (moved one hour later--thanks Rugal!)

Talking
: Join Rugal's super-secret lagfest-only Discord server above so we can find you and share a link for his...private lobby.

Setup: Ishmael, the new Fightcade is surprisingly easy: on the left, you can search for a game and "join" it as a channel, pinning up to three on the left. Once inside that channel, you can choose Test Game at the top right to go in single-player, and map and save your controls under the Input menu. This tool is the easiest way to get the games running. Rugal and I both used it and it's legit.

where are you??? Cyberbots is an option!

Conclusions:

-Old KOF games are fun and weirdly different from Capcom, even if their inputs are way too picky for a controller!

-Zero 3 is still loads of fun, and I never knew Sodom could be so mighty till I saw Rugalís

-Itís possible to survive having your supposedly good-ish Retrobit Saturn pad spontaneously break by connecting an old PS2 Udon pad to a PS2 to USB converter, then running it out of Joy 2 Key as a keyboard input! Or maybe the lesson is I shouldnít have left my superior Hori pad at the other house, and you shouldnít, either!

-Cyberbots was not enough to summon Spoon and I have no proof he is not my only online buddy who is actually AI

-Naomi games like CvS2 are really awkward to run on weirdo GGPO even when run through FightcadeÖwhy?

-Fightcade is so good and easy now that even less half-assed online options on the recent SF Collection might not have been enough to shift people over

-This is true love with bacon all the time

My guess would be this is a community project cobbling together, and making old things work with newer technologies through various dark arts.

So we should be thankful it's functional at all, as opposed to unusable as it was in the past.

God bless the mad geniuses behind these projects whose only reward is the satisfaction in knowing that they're keeping the thing they love alive. Although some of them do manage to segue it into careers in the gaming arena, or other fields.

Nuts, this is turning out to be a busy semester, but hopefully I can lag soon.

Just curious, but what do you think of fightcade? You have more access to original hardware than anyone else here, so how does the latest fgc fad compare to the real experience?

Itís functional. Honestly, the neo geo and cps2/3 stuff is pretty indistinguishable, naomi stuffÖ less so, ha ha ha ha.

Iíd probably whine about how the lag makes reactive anti-air with Sodomís lp/mp jigoku scrape and meido no miyage impossible, but in essence weíre just goofing around online, soÖ ww
Iíll have to dig out my pgm and do a martial masters comparison at some point, but itís probably fine.
QV: everything seems fine except Naomi stuff which has some issues even offline.

Nope, itís Friday 7:30pm EST if Sat 9:30am JST. Youíll need to join Rugalís super secret Discord above if you want to find the Cafe. Other links above show how to install soft. I donít know if I can join but you will have fun and learn a lot from the master!

Further to Ishmaelís question, Fightcade is pretty glorious and certainly no more laggy than modern games we play with our international group here. Itís also refreshing just how FAST everything is to load, just like in the arcades. Going to this from SFV is like going to FFVIís three second battle loads after waiting for literally 20 seconds in FFIX.

Handy tool for the consideration of players in other timezones.

Interesting to watch fan projects that have set a standard for industry quality be judged against non-existent commercial offerings. I'm still amazed these mad hobbyists have brought Naomi games to heel, after years of it being accepted as an impossibility.

On one hand, certain licensed games make the legal effort an impossibility; on the other it's sheer negligence, or disregard for the legacy of these intellectual properties that rights holders own.

Thanks for hosting, Rugal! Nice to play with Orochiaku for the first time, and multi-continent Fightcade works well other than the Naomi gamesí button config (why wonít they save?). One thing we were talking about for a future lagfest is how itís cool that unlike official releases today, itís possible for different groups of people in the lobby to play each other rather than having to just spectate a single match till itís their turn. Big fun!

PLUS you can also play nutty stuff like Gouketsuji (Power Instinct??) games, Waku Waku 7, and almost anything else! Still waiting for 3D fare like Justice Gakuen, though, which will surely draw the entire Cafe.
