A note on GGPO and Windows 7’s lag.

(Crossposted from SRK) I mentioned in the last thread that there was some input lag while using Windows 7. After doing some moderate investigoogling, this seems to be an issue with vsync, which Win7 uses for everything in the standard Aero layout (the one where with all of the pretty semitransparent borders). This can be …

Updates, Videos, GGPO and More Frame Data

Hey, everybody. It’s been a while. I’ve been upgrading my PC for a while, and…long story short, I needed a new hard drive during a massive hard drive shortage (HDDs presently cost 3 times what they did a few months ago). As such, I haven’t been doing much blogging or game playing etc, since I’m …

GGPO Version .030 Frameskpping/Rollback issue

Edit (Nov.26.2011): It should be noted that after messing around with my settings- IIRC I just unplugged my router and connected my cable modem directly to my PC’s ethernet port- I lowered my ping number, which improved the frameskipping problem by a noticeable amount. However, the overall point of the below post (that the v.030 …

Evolution 2011: Thoughts on Skullgirls and Street Fighter x Tekken

Howdy, elite fraternity of readers. It’s been a while. I went to Evo last week (an international tournament for fighting games), and had a good time, as I always do. I got a chance to play a few matches of SFxTekken and Skullgirls. Skullgirls is kind of hard to explain in a few sentences, but …

Lag and You: An Amuse-Bouche

With GGPO down for a few weeks, I tried Supercade, which is a great program, but its considered by some to be silver medalist to GGPO’s gold. My experiences with the program were pretty good, but there was a noticeable increase in input delay compared to GGPO. Input delay, for the unaware, is a form …

GGPO Status: BACK

Website up! Client is up! But requires new download- it is a new test-build. You will need to copy/paste your ROMS folder into whatever folder you unzip the new GGPO files into. If you didn’t already have an earlier build of GGPO installed, then create a new folder named “roms” and put your games in …

What the Hell is GGPO?

So some guy asks me, “what is GGPO, and why do you talk about it so much?” Well, imaginary guy who didn’t really ask that, prepare yourself. Here is the GGPO description from the official website (which is mostly down at the moment due to DDOS attacks on the server by scrubs): GGPO is a …

GGPO status update // Links bonanza

Those of you who play on GGPO may have noticed that it was down last week. This was due to a DDOS attack on the server. Things are up and running again. Also, keep an eye out for the updated version of GGPO coming out in a few months. ~~~~~ I’ve also added a bunch …

Honda Closure

A few thoughts on some other Honda matches other than the ones posted in the last 2 blog entries. All matches probably feature the same Honda player, but I’m not sure. Unknown (Honda) vs DARK (Gen) Round 1: Honda tries to start the match off with a sweep (crouching Fierce) but gets countered by Gen’s …

Match Breakdown: 3 (A-Chun li vs A-Honda)

Couple problems with this match, #1 being that Honda does not have reliable anti-air vs Chun. Jab headbutt only really works if she’s above him or above and in front. Chun can jump with Short or the stomp from far away and basically hit Honda at his legs, and either beat the headbutt (bad for …
