yeah that’s true. I’ve met cool people on GGPO and people worth playing for sure. just a shame to have to wade through the rest of the stuff that comes along with it.
we need to play soon! I’m hungry for revenge. I’m going to try not planting my face into your pokes this next time around.
yeah definitely. when I was describing my experience with GGPO and several people didn’t really experience the same thing, I figured it was probably a Windows 7 thing. ChaiTea was saying Windows 8 feels awful too and it sounds like you are having the same experience. maybe dual booting with Windows XP might work? I’ve been thinking of giving that a try.
that’s the nice thing about OE, everyone’s setup is identical. where on GGPO one of you might be on XP and one of you on Windows 8, or the other is locking his refresh to his monitor and you aren’t. seems like there’s a lot of stuff that can potentially go wrong.
I think in ideal circumstances GGPO is clearly better than OE. Funland and I went from pretty close to unplayable on OE to definitely playable on GGPO, and we’re both on 0 frame delay, one of us in Alaska and one of us in eastern Canada. that’s a pretty good testament to GGPO when it is working smoothly.
