Seriously, I played it a few years ago and never got into it, so laggy and crappy. Went on XBox Live and played CVS2EO for a while and quit. Last week I tried Kaillera again and I could not believe how smooth it is. <50ms ping for both players and it truely feels like offline play. It feels BETTER than CVS2EO.
I almost fell off my chair when people created games for Real Bout 2, Breaker’s Revenge and other obscure games. I played someone in Break’s Revenge today and I was comboing into supers on a keyboard (serious wrist pain after that). Just get a $10 converter and you can convert whatever PS2/Xbox stick you have into USB (which I am getting).
If you tried Kaillera a few years back MAKE SURE you give it another shot, you won’t be disappointed. As long as people have <50ms ping and are on clean independent connections (aka not sharing with someone who is Bit Torrent 24/7), the games are so smooth.
Seriously I can’t believe Kaillera is the least popular online forum when it really should be THE number one platform for online fighters. And it is all free!
