I’m looking to put together a history or time line of sorts for netplay when it comes to fighting games specifically and was wondering if I could get some help.
So far I’ve got it set up as XBAND being the first which was in 1994 which used the 28k modem. I also wanted to include emulators that had netplay such as Znes around 98-99. Then I got SegaNet being next in line in 2000 but of course this gets tricky because researching it so far I only know about Capcom Vs Snk 2 being available in japan only. The Kaillera client of course came around 2001 which I believe came before Xbox Live. Then you have 2002 with the PS2 which had some titles as well that were compatible.
I figure I’m pretty much covered after that but what do you think should be included? I have a feeling there may be some holes especially with PC and even Sega Saturn. There were a lot of JPN titles that got netplay we didn’t get over here in the US.
Any suggestions or direction you could point me in would be appreciated. I like to know about the experiences as well. I believe something was done here on shoryuken about Xband but I could not find the article.
