the netcode is not as good as ggpo so only train with your friends that are < 100ms ping from you.
Go into training mode (you have to select 2p character for your friend). After the game is running, you can control 1p but 2p is a dummy.
press start and go to training menu
change the 2p to be controlled by human and you can optionally change super to be unlimited, and adjust the speed to turbo 1 (or whatever speed you feel that is closer to arcade)
possible hacks to enable GGPO online 2 players training mode
After getting destroyed on ggpo yesterday, another light bulb pops up in my mind.
I was thinking if there are more efficient ways for beginner / intermediate players to practice the game and improve faster.
You can practice combo on single player offline but things like counter throw, reversal, safe jump, wall dive defense are much easier to learn if you have a partner to practice together.
There are mame/nfba cheats for Infinite Time, Infinite Energy PL1/PL2, Infinite Super PL1/PL2 but ggpo doesn't support nfba cheat.
However I think there is a way to hack the roms directly and embed the cheats into the rom.
I know that with some cps2 games you can toggle cheats in the system menu after phoenix'ed, so those cheats must be permanently burned into the rom.
So in theory if two persons have the same hacked ssf2t.zip rom, when they connect the cheats should work.
I have no clue how to hack cps2 rom, but I'll continue to do some research on the web to see if this is possible.
If you are a hacker or you know people that are hackers like FelineKI, Dammit, and MZK, please try to pitch the idea to them and see if it is possible.
