Hi all! I’m having a strange online issue, I didn’t know where to post this.
I have SSFIV + AE for PS3. All US. I moved to Spain in summer of 2010 and brought them with me. When I tried playing online I was connecting only to US players and the lag was pretty bad. So I opened another PSN account setting my region to Spain, and everything was OK (even got the Spanish flag with my ID, kewl!)
I was getting good matches (green bars, no lag) with people from all over Europe up until about 1-2 weeks ago. All of a sudden all I get is US players (1 bar or nothing, lots of lag) even with my PSN account with the region set to Spain. I’ve tried deleting my Spanish PSN account and opening another one. Still only US players.
Has anyone had any problems like this? Is there anything that can be done? I read somewhere that SSFIV online matches are determined by the server it connects to, and that is software-dependent (if it’s a US copy, it connects to US servers only). I don’t think that’s it though…
Could it be because of a PS3 firmware update? Or SSFIV update? Or could it be because I still have my first PSN account (with US region)? I hope it’s not that, because I would lose a lot of save games.
Anyway, sorry about the long post! Thanks for any help!
