Davideo7 : Not to be "Off topic" But rcarter and Leggy both made threads already regarding this subject. Should those threads now be closed so people don't get confused?

Jordanv78 : It's a good question. His thread is just dedicated to finding people who want to play netplay, my thread is everything dealing with netplay.

Maybe we could keep both threads and I place a link to that thread from this thread?

I placed a link to this thread from the netplay sessions page.

One question if I may ask. Do we report issues involving netplay here as well, or to the other thread in the General Chat?

I have much information to learn.

Hi Davideo7. I use fire fox to play the netplay, it works but all the games lag. I live in the U.S , in the mid south. I noticed that when hosting it has United states 1 and 2 and was wondering if that or my location has something to do with the lag. Or if you know of something else that would help would be appeciated.

jlh : If you're playing with someone who lives in a different country, or if they have a slow computer/internet, they would cause you to lag as well.

Okay, many thanks.

Besides the issue with Perfect Dark (unable to play multiplayer; can't use cam spy item) and Snowboard Kids (screen goes black when a race starts), everything seems okay. When I tested some certain games for different servers, all but some of the N64 games played great for me. I'm still not entirely sure if my location [Georgia, US] has anything to do with it.

I have this one issue that bothers me a to some extent on Netplay. One of these days I have decided to play Diddy Kong Racing with some of the users from the Netplay lobby. I noticed that all the data was not there as I was playing the game ( I had beat the game ). So I figured that I may have to unlock some tracks in the game again but this time it would be during Netplay. So I decided to play single player during one of the sessions I've created to unlock a few tracks so they can be available for everyone to race. A few minutes later I invite a user to play 2 players an we played for a while. I made sure to save in the game for the next time I create an session. That time comes and I'm ready to play again. Once again I host and the data was not there, even when I tried to unlock it during Netplay. It also does the same when I play Mario Kart 64 and Super Mario World. Does Netplay not save your game data ? Or am I doing it the wrong way ?

cnw64 :
Davideo7 :

In my experiences Netplay does not save data nor does it allow you to take screenshots and upload them. As a matter of fact, every time you play a game you have to re-configure your controls.

Saving never worked for any game I tried. I always thought I was doing something wrong. I also have to input the controls in order to use my pc controller all the time.

Yes, just as Jordanv78 says. All the time. I don't mind doing it every now and than but it does get a little annoying.

Maybe this has been asked before somewhere, or mentioned or something, but are there any plans for Pokémon (the GBA) to be on/integrated with Netplay? I feel like these games (as you need the complementary game to beat them, FireRed to LeafGreen and so on) would be excellent to add to Netplay, and would definitely make a lot of people happy.
Or maybe something similar to Netplay? If Netplay is having (problems?) saving/loading, then such a feature would be absolutely null for the Pokémon games.

Or maybe that's impossible and I'm just hoping for too much at the moment? I'm not emulator savvy, nor am I savvy with anything other than single player on here, but it would be awesome if something like this were to exist.

jakkthebeastie : If we can come up with the budget for it we'll add it but since gameboy netplay is so complicating, it'd cost me a lot of money to have it added.

Okay. I can see how that would make sense. Based on the current donation/income/whatever money this site has on its own, do you think that Netplay/online play for GBA is probable anytime soon?

Either that, or having it so that people can meet on this site through the game chat or something, but also be able to do it individually? Again, I'm not emulator savvy. But is something like this even possible? I've heard that VBA has some sort of online play, but I'm not sure if the person who was talking about it meant networked play (emulator to emulator) or online play (like on the actual Internet/ connection).

If the emulator that Vizzed RGR uses for GBA games is similarly coded to VBA, would it be possible to somehow link people on a separate channel, if you will? (As in, all of the individual players playing offline could be in the main game room, playing by themselves. And then whoever wanted to trade/link up could chat one another, or use the game chat to find each other. Perhaps have a separate "online" chat, based on the functions for online play? It could even be in another tab or something, able to swap with the single player chat.)

And now I'm rambling.

But yes. Thanks for replying. Your reasoning does make sense, I'm just eager for this to happen and haven't ever gotten the guts to ask for it, as I am new here.
