Is Tatsunoko vs Capcom Online laggy for you?

Steve FSteve F Hidden ST CharacterJoined: Posts: 397
Hey guys, been playing TvC for a bit now, the game is great, but I've had some bad experiences playing online. I haven't played anyone who is definitely near me, and there's no ping/gauge to tell the connection quality, but almost every match is laggy as hell. Out of about 20 online matches, maybe 5 have been CLOSE to normal. I am using a wireless connection, but the Wii is literally 5 feet away from the router. I would get a Wired adapter, but do you guys think it would make a big difference? The person on the other end may just be using a weak wireless connection and it would foul up again. It's a shame the online had to suffer from this, or this would be a great addition to online capable Wii titles.

    Most of my matches are pretty playable. Normally there is just a slight delay. Every know and then I get a match with super lag or button delay. So far though every thing runs great.

    As for getting the wired adapter, Is that going to make a difference if the other guy is wireless? Have you tried port forwarding?

    that makes two of us ... out of 20 matches i get 1 match that is "PLAYABLE" .. the adapter just doesnt work, well it didnt work for me, i bought it and SFS. it just make you connect faster to the wi-fi network but in real matches i get the same

    Does anyone know some methods of port forwarding to make the online play a little faster on the wired end? I just got an adapter and it does work fine, but there are too many people with crap wireless connections, and it's destroying the online play pretty hard. ALL of the matches I have, have delay or lag. Haven't had a decent match yet really. Button delay, movement delay... just takes away from everything. I can't get a handle on it to save my life. Just results in more loss, and no real experience or practice. Just whiffed moves all over the place.

    Really? Was our match really that laggy? There was practically no delays on my end.

    In Brawl, using the adaptor auctually made button lag worse for me.I wouldn't give wired connectivity too much credit. I get no button/input delay on all the fighting games on XBL and it's wireless. I think having a wired connection makes it more secure, and less likely to drop on your end.

    The problem is most players play under their firewalls. They haven't port forwarded or DMZed their Wii. It's the security that makes it hard to play games online. I remember when I was under custom security settings, my wii was always dropping Brawl matches. It would only go one or two matches before disconnecting, and swapping/KOing pokemon with PT always lost the signal. Once resetted to factory settings, I didn't have that problem anymore.


    If I ever get my friends code, I've play a couple matches with some of you. See if the lag gets better or worse.

    Unfortunately my friend. =( It was pretty laggy. It could just be me even though I'm wired through my router. That's why I'm wondering if anyone could help me forward the ports, or give me some advice. It could just be on my end. But I don't know, I thought being wired right to my router would help definitely. Maybe I need to hook it right to the modem.

    Is there anyway you could help me do this M.D.? Well, any advice on what I can do? I know nothing about port forwardign or "DMZ"ing Wiis. Also, are you talking about factory settings on your Wii? or router?
    I have no problems playing wireless on my Ps3. Blazblue matches run smooth as a babies bottom. No lag, always perfect. Just my Wii I'm having trouble with.

    It's in your router. Most routers have a setting to let you DMZ one device that uses internet, and it should be somewhere under your firewall settings.

    What WaInut said. just connect your Wii to wifi, then access the router menu from your computer. The address is different depending on what model you have(On my netgear router, it's http://192.168.0.1/). You can find out the username, password and instructions from Google.

    Ah, it's too bad, since the game is pretty great, that we can't get a good online experience as well. What ports would I need to forward, I could do that pretty easily if I needed to...

    my experience with online is not so good. i use wireless connect but still get laggy matches. i hear some people get good online with wireless connect. so what am i doin wrong? my wii is upstairs while my internet modem is downstairs. does that make a difference? i get beat on because of lag but i can tell im at least decent enough to put up a fight if there was no lag which is what i dont like, i get beat on by guys i couldve hammered offline.
  • Pancake_BlasterPancake_Blaster Joined: Posts: 12
    Yes that does make a difference. I had my Wii set up in my living room with the router upstairs. I had an ok connection, it was playable. I took the Wii upstairs into the computer room and the connection is now damn near flawless.

    My Wii is on wireless, DMZ'd. I've had a few laggy matches out of 20 or so, but the majority are very playable.

    Same here. Once I switched to "Wired" It was like night and day with the online. I may get 1 out of 5 matches that has very slight lag, but input is always on the money.

    You need to define a static IP for your Wii through the connection menu. Then forward these ports through your router: 28910, 29900, 29901, 29920, 80, and 443.

    Wired WILL make a difference IMO. Even if its five feet away, it's still not gonna be as fast as a wired.

    I'm afraid this is going to happen to me allot when I get the game, I live in Australia. I'm sure most players will be from the US. Anyone know which ports to forward to get the game running fine?
  • ColinoColino Little Dancing Sandwich Guy Joined: Posts: 748
    The main problem with all of this is, even though you can personally do your best to make the connection as good as possible (wired, static IP etc) the other player is going to have his own connection regardless, and the match is going to be shitty anyways.

    I've gotten maybe 5 satisfying (not saying perfect) matches out of 20 and decided to quit because it really wasn't worth it.

    Unfortunately, there's no way I can play with a wired connection, the modem is in my parent's bedroom and my Wii is in the gameroom. =\

    Anyway wireless isn't all bad, at least it makes tick throwing easier IMO.

    In my opinion it's almost unplayable by competitive standards, after playing online for a few hours I could see that it was making me worse at the game. You have to resort to using basic tactics/lag exploits because most of your better options are nonviable because of the Wii's online speed. I can play MvC2/BB on XBL with almost zero lag against most, so it's definitely not my connection.

    I actually suffer from laggy matches a lot, as some of my lag-free matches are at least once every five matches.

    I agree with most people on here in that my online matches are UNPLAYABLE!! I think it is nintendo's fault, cuz i have a 360 and SF4 runs flawlessly 99% of the time.

    In my experience, wifi lag really kills the game. Just someone jumping at you, you blocking the jump attack, then the opponent tries a link string starting with d.A ... results: You eat the whole combo because when you pressed down to block the low attack, lag prevented you to do it instantly. Is this the actual case? If so, then **** this game on wifi.
  • M.D.M.D. digs older chicks Joined: Posts: 4,188
    ^Truth. The online aspect of the game for me is just to study the matchups to see how characters pit againist one another. Trying to play without mashing results in missed inputs and mistimed combos. Mashing doesn't help either cause it then results in SF4 jab combos knocking the opponent top far away to combo into anything else. Add on top of that having to fight guys with the wiimote shortcuts making every easy for them, and you have a pretty lousy time.

    Man... I just tried it for the first time tonight... there's gotta be somethin' fugged up on my end, 'cause this is just bad. We're talking minimum half-second delay on input and stuttering like mad. Even Brawl wasn't this bad. Any ideas?

    EDIT: Before I get any "do a static IP" replies, I do have this set up. I did the best configuration possible back when Brawl came out to mitigate the lag and it did okay for how bad Brawl was, but this is still far worse.

    I also cannot stand playing this game online anymore, ive played about 300 matches and about 75% of the players i go against results in games with half-second input lag or longer. I stubbornly kept playing on and on hoping that i would atleast find a decent pool of lagless players i could contend with, but those 1 or 2 ppl dont even play anymore it seems...

    I have a wired connection, tried both DMZ'ing wii and forwarding ports with the only noticeable improvement on delay for lvl selection, connecting to a player ( all that less than important stuff)

    a couple of the most annoying things about the lag is no-register on quartercircle or wutever motions, and Tekaman blade's falchion spam is near impossible to block on reaction (mixups in general too truthfully)

    without any further suggestions to solve this problem i guess i will just have to go back to SF4

    i dont know bout it really being laggy but right now im overseas in turkey and im really tired of not being able to play people and even more upset with losing to fucking zero scrubs due to the lag.

    So guys...... is there ANY way Nintendo can improve the Wii's wifi to the level of 360s and PS3s? As much as I hate the Wii's wifi, it's a shame that good games such as this and Naruto CONR3 have suffered from it.

    And I don't know about you guys but, I was actually hopeful for Brawl's wifi. ;_;

    What a disappointment, the lag in this game has left it practically unplayable for me online.

    I guess Im not alone here. I stopped playing online for a while, now today I wanted to see if I had some good luck in finding decent comp with decent lag ... It was just horrible.
    I wanted to get again into the fighting game scene, and since I still dont have a ps3/360, wii's tvc was going to be a viable option with its online capability. Now I guess I will have to wait to play fighting games, and keep playing other ones.

    Had some matches today that were really close to being button lag free. If you haven't DMZed your Wii yet, I strongly suggest that you do.
