I officially love you!


#3

I can play this game again. Bless you Serris


#4

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

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.


#5

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


#6

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


#7

how is the delay?


#8

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

VERY awesome news!!!


#11

sweet i hope it works for my computer it looks like my video card might be a little too weak for 1080p/60fps but I’m down to play if I get it to work.


#12

it was great actually playing this game with people. besides the frame drops with supers it was really smooth would love to play other people in this game.


#13

are you guys playing this for reals? always wanted to get into this jawn, ill be a noob tho


#14

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.


#15

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.


#16

a guy on the fb group said this sucks on windows 8? if thats so thats disappointing :frowning:


#17

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.


#18

sweet good to know


#19

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.


#20

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.
