Since Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection will shutting down soon, now seems like the perfect opportunity to try and revive the game by moving over to Dolphin's netplay! Don't worry about needing to upgrade your PC. Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars is one of the few Wii games that has a five-star Dolphin compatibility rating, which means it's very easy to emulate!



What You Need:
  • Dolphin 5.0-321. This is what you use to play the game online.
  • A North American ISO of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars. You can find a guide to rip the game from your Wii here.

    If your game's MD5 does not match your opponent's, you may not be able to sync.

    Minimum Requirements (480p/60 FPS):
    Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 or AMD Phenom X6 1090T
    RAM: 2 GB DDR2
    Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4600 or NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT or AMD Radeon HD 4770
    Operating System: Windows Vista 64-bit, Mac OS X 10.0 "Yosemite", or Linux 64-bit (Ubuntu-based, Debian-based, or FreeBSD)
    Hard Drive Space: 5 GB free

    Recommended Specifications (1080p/60 FPS):
    Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K or AMD FX-8320
    RAM: 4 GB DDR3
    Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon R7 265
    Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit, Mac OS X 10.11.6 "El Capitan" 64-bit, Linux Mint "Cinnamon" 64-bit



    Installation:
    1. Extract Dolphin.
    2. Create a new folder named "ISO" in your Dolphin folder.
    3. Place your Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars image in your ISO folder.
    4. Configure Dolphin to use the following settings:

    You can join the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars group on Discord for live chat, matchmaking, and tech support.

    Hosting:
    1. Click Tools at the top of the Dolphin window.
    2. Click Start NetPlay.
    3. Set Traversal in the top-left, not Direct.
    4. Click the Host tab.
    5. Select the game in your list of ISOs.
    6. Click the Host button to host a lobby.
    7. Click the Copy button to copy your Host Code ID.
    8. Paste the Host Code ID to your opponent.
    9. Set the frame buffer to your opponent's ping divided by 8. Adjust as needed for higher latency. (4 buffer = one frame of input delay. 60ms = recommended buffer of 8 / 2 frames.)
    10. Start the game.

    Joining:
    1. Click Tools at the top of the Dolphin window.
    2. Click Start NetPlay.
    3. Set Traversal in the top-left, not Direct.
    4. Click the Connect tab.
    5. Paste your opponent's Host Code ID in the Host Code field.
    6. Click the Connect button to join the host's lobby.



    Known Issues:
    • Having "Insert SD card" set to on and having any Wii remotes enabled will cause immediate desyncs.
    • The game may stutter while it loads character effects into memory the first time you start it up. Just play through Survival for a while and it shouldn't happen again after that.

    You're too kind. As it turns out, I forgot to mention something:

    Since Dolphin doesn't sync saves that means that the unlockable characters can't be used.

    You just need to enable the GeckoOS codes as shown above. That gets around the save issue and lets you use the unlockable characters.

    You can set the delay to what you want. We were playing on 7f-8f and it felt fine.

    Yea I have played both Serris and Rotan and the matches were very smooth lag spikes every now and then when supers happen but besides that it was good enough to do combos without any problems.

    I'm getting inconsistent FPS. It holds around 60 but the instant a Super happens it goes down to like 20 and bounces back.

    Who's a good partner for Alex? And don't say Zero.

    No it doesn't I have windows 8 and it runs fine. Besides a little bit of stutter when supers happens i get a constant 60 fps.

    Yo. I've been playing quite a bit with Serris and the lag is usually manageable despite the massive distance between us. I've been playing this game for a couple years now as there is a small local scene in Finland. If you want to play you should contact me with a PM or in Skype since I usually forget to visit the chat.

    Hopefully we can get a list of people that play tvc on dolphin because I don't know how useful the irc chat is cause everytime I go in the room only two people are there and they are usually afk. Maybe we can come up with a better way to communicate to set up some games.

    I'm all up for a Skype/Steam group. That would be where people are online almost all the time so it's easier to just ask for a quick game. No one remembers to check the IRC chat and they will only go there when actively seeking games so it won't be so easy to send invites to people.

    I doubt anybody will see this on time but anybody want to get a quick set going.

    It's pretty much impossible to explain those specs in a simpler format. Just use the run command and type DxDiag, it will show a list of your specs that you can simply just compare to the above one. Obviously bigger numbers are better.
  • Spiral0ArchitectSpiral0Architect Joined: Posts: 603
    Ah I see, thanks. Well, looks like I'm nowhere near the requirements. Ah well.

    Just a heads up to all the people here who owns a actual nintendo wii, the game Tatsunoko vs Capcom Ultimate AllStars was "NOT" affected by the nintendo wifi service being shut down. I am assuming it is because TvC does not run on Gamespy servers.

    Let me know if anyone can get the GeckOS codes to work alongside the iso. The characters aren't unlocked even though I've followed the instructions

    Just as a note, the IRC channel is essentially dead. Rotanibor and I have been the only consistent presence in it since its inception, so I'm removing it from the guide.
