Title: MBCaster (Netplay Tool)
Post by: Tropsy on September 08, 2007, 10:01:48 PM
MBCaster has been updated as of December 26th, 2007. If you are running an older version it is highly advised to update (http://mauve.sandwich.net/MBCaster.html).

Hey guys, I made this thing you can use to play online. It's still in testing stages, but it's relatively playable -- you can get the latest version from the MBCaster homepage on Melty Breadthe MBCaster homepage on sandwich.net (http://mauve.sandwich.net/MBCaster.html).

Disclaimer: 99.9% of the credit for this goes to the author of Caster (http://njm4558.run.buttobi.net/). I just took his really, really awesome netplay tool and made it work with MBAC. Not that it was trivial, but still.

FAQ:
1) Jesus christ! It exploded after game started!
A: Make sure you have the latest version (1.03a as of now)

2) How do I use keyboard controls?
A: Set inputDevice to 255 in config_caster.ini

3) ERROR : mbacPC start failed.
A: Put the MBCaster files in the same folder mbacPC.exe is in.


Relay Information by Bellreisa

Hello, I would like to announce that the relay that we use for IaMP and SWR Caster now supports MBCaster as well. A quick explanation: relay is option 7, which allows you both parties who are unable to directly connect to each other to initiate a connection via a third party and then tunnel through to each other. This is not like Hamachi, where data is sent through someone else; you are still ultimately directly connecting, but using a host to initate the connection.

To use the relay, first make sure neither side can host (if either side can it's easier to just use option 2). Both parties should select option 7, enter port 7500 UDP, and then this IP: 209.237.242.30 208.83.220.135, which is the server where the relay is hosted. You should see the prompts "Now waiting for introduction" and "now waiting for response", and it will connect as normal if successful. If you time out with the relay then you may need to resort to Hamachi or figure out how to port forward properly. In order to facilitate spectating, MB Caster will print out the IP and port that you are connected on for you to copy and paste to other people once you are connected. Hope this helps.

Me and Psy tried this out, we'd time out when the match started. I also noticed that I'd time out on pretty much all of my other net stuff. I usually see this happen with stuff that uses a ton of bandwidth, maybe there's some issue here that doesn't agree with our routers?

The client doesn't work as well as Caster for IaMP, but I think that's mainly due to the nature of the games involved.

NOTE: THIS LINK IS SPECIFICALLY FOR IAMP, NOT MELTY BLOOD
For instructions go here: http://iamp.mizuumi.net/index.php/Netplay

But the general low down is if you want to play, you'll need one hoster and one person who'll connect to the hoster.

The person who hosts will press 1 then enter. The person whos going to join that game needs to press 2 then enter. After pressing 2, type in the hoster's ip and press enter again to connect. One of you will get a message that says to enter the delay rate. Depending on how far you guys are, press any number between 1-6. The link above has a nice chart for what the delays are reccomended for.

Hope that wasn't too confusing >_>

Game boots fine in single player but when we try to connect (one Vista machine and one XP) it won't work properly. More elaborate; if the Vista machine hosts the XP connects fine but the Vista can't chose frame data and just freezes. If the XP hosts the Vista machine's netplay program crashes as he connects.
If the Vista machine tries to run 9 (Debug) it'll show
Error: mbacpc setpath failed
Error: wait for debug event

Nope, that's fine, thanks for the link too, we finally know what we're doing. Only problem now is that when we try to connect we get the Error CharInit() Failed. It happens to us both when we try to use the debug mode and I just reinstalled MBAC with fresh settings, patched to 1.03 Still getting the error in debug.

I guess it's hopeless.

Post by: COD3player on September 09, 2007, 12:48:39 PM
Alright, another friend is trying to host and he's not behind a router. He's updated to 1.03 and extracted the files to the game's folder. So all he has to do is give me his ip to connect to him right? Well it just so happens after I connect to his ip and we pick a delay, the game starts up and then closes itself due to some error (I think it's an initialization error). Any solutions?

For all of the PPL who are having issues w/ getting the app to locate your exe note that the files MUST be extracted in the same directory as your EXE !!! ... Hopefully later on you can execute the netplay patch meanwhile it is not located in the MBACPC dir.

I'm pretty sure you can change those options before starting netplay. Then when you connect your game will have those options on

I think that you can change the screen mode by setting it to zero ... just looked at the ini more in depth now.  But thats all I see in terms of options.

Erum I was wondering ... Whats with the title screen mod w/ Happy B Day Len??  -- Is there a way to remove it?

would it be possible to add some solution to make it able to reg both keyboard input and joystick?

Anyhow, sometimes I get some kind of bug that makes a beep every time you press a button while in the game. Selecting mIRC and then MBAC again fixes it so it's not really a problem but got any clue of what causes it?

I was doing some testing with different things on my PC's trying to get my stick to work without joy2key(no luck but joy2key works much better on this than MBR probably something to do with the interpiter) anyways i noticed that it was lagging a bit the inputs on client PC had allmsot a 1 second delay and the host pc had a slight delay, what i did to fix this was changed the priority level to above average priority on the host PC and this fixed the problem the lagg(most of it) is gone now(i was using 1 delay or whatever for all my testing). you should know that when i did the same to the client PC it caused more lagg.  I think this needs to be tested i only have one dual core system which was the host PC so theres is a possibility that since the client was a single core it just lagged more than helped this might fix some lagg issues some may have. . .  i think

Hello, I would like to announce that the relay that we use for IaMP and SWR Caster now supports MBCaster as well. A quick explanation: relay is option 7, which allows you both parties who are unable to directly connect to each other to initiate a connection via a third party and then tunnel through to each other. This is not like Hamachi, where data is sent through someone else; you are still ultimately directly connecting, but using a host to initate the connection.

To use the relay, first make sure neither side can host (if either side can it's easier to just use option 2). Both parties should select option 7, enter port 7500 UDP, and then this IP: 209.237.242.30, which is the server where the relay is hosted. You should see the prompts "Now waiting for introduction" and "now waiting for response", and it will connect as normal if successful. If you time out with the relay then you may need to resort to Hamachi or figure out how to port forward properly. In order to facilitate spectating, MB Caster will print out the IP and port that you are connected on for you to copy and paste to other people once you are connected. Hope this helps.

set your controller, for some reason MBAC doesnt recognize it ... usualy if your using a pad or converter or whatever its going to be " 0 "  and 255 is for if you are using keyboard or using say a stick that uses keyboard commands or soemthing like joy2key.


EDIT:  I meant test your controler in MBAC and see fi its working then  in the caster config file  set it to either 0 or 255 depending on whatever type of controler it is

All people having random crashes, pathset errors or start errors not caused by mbcaster being in the wrong folder, try the latest version. It should fix most (all?) of them.

The loading screen lags because it's waiting on the other player to finish loading, if you load everything first.

You can see the same behavior in IaMP.

Anyone tried testing this w/ the new 1.03A patch?

Also I was wondering if it is possible to run the game in Full Screen Mode.  I set windowmode = 0 but that didnt do it  :psyduck:

Note: that I am only using the debug mode at the moment (which doesn't initiate full screen mode)  I havint tried online play yet.

As a request, I noticed that your app fixes the bg type to normal (found in MB:AC options, not the window executed prior to the game), is it possible to make an option to be able to set the bg to simple mode in the cfg file?

Recommended order is to run the 1.03 patch FIRST, then the NOCD patch.

That's all I got.

Otherwise, make sure you go into caster_config and turn vista compatibility on if you need to (change 0 to 1 in line that says Vista(something) = 0)

Post by: Tuxedo717 on September 10, 2007, 07:19:27 PM
hmmm i have the same prob

running on vista

got the latest version of mbcaster (september 10th)
copied the config_caster.ini, info.ini, and mbcaster.exe files into the MBACWIN folder, went to ecole's website and updated to 1.03a

double click the main MBAC app and make sure controls are ok, set it to windowed just to be sure, then exit that config window

start up mbcaster and press 9 to go into debug menu (like the readme says to) says the port ip address is the 127.0.0.1 (which is loopback)

then MBACWIN starts on the taskbar and it says mbacPC.exe has stopped working (vista's generic "program needs to close" message) and the game closes before even showing anything

caster stays working, however, and doesnt freeze (just refreshes its main menu)

Post by: Tuxedo717 on September 10, 2007, 07:32:45 PM
ah, when i updated MBAC to 103a the first time it must not have went through correctly...

when running in windowed mode it only said 1.03 and at the time i thought maybe it just didnt put the a at the end

but i re-applied the melty blood 103a patch, and it now says 1.03A in the windowed mode's title bar...

tried out mbcaster and it works!

so that's my advice....make sure your MBACWIN's windowed mode shows 1.03A in the title bar, and of course make sure you have the latest version of caster (look at the changelog and see if its up to Sept. 10ths version)

thanks guys :D

so how do you get this to work with hamachi? i have hamachi already set up and have tried REact netplay a while back so i have the groundwork...
Title: Re: MBCaster (Netplay Tool)

you would just use the hamachi IP's instead when joining the game also there is a sept 11th version of MBCaster which mainly has support for 1.03a not sure what else is changed/fixed.
Title: Re: MBCaster (Netplay Tool)
Post by: mrthefter on September 10, 2007, 07:37:28 PM
The update probably didn't work correctly because MBCaster was open when you applied the patch. MBCaster binds mbacPC.exe, so it doesn't get updated.

# Keyboard inputs. Check keycodes.txt for appropiate numbers.

kUp=0xC8
kDown=0xD0

kB=0x1F
kC=0x20

A+B, A+B+C keyboard shortcuts would be technically trivial to add, but they aren't in standard MBAC and I'm sticking to the official format. Many people hate shortcuts, so I'm not taking a stance either way.

About 2vs2, no, it won't happen. Not because it wouldn't be playable, assuming decent pings on all sides, but because it would require massive modifications to the network protocol, which I am most definitely not going to do for a "joke" mode. Tag mode may be implemented in the future.

A+B is actually still used among even some of the top players.  Veteru, for example, uses A+B.  A+D and A+B+C are irrelevant with the addition of the Q button though, since it works as both heat and throw.

Anyways, I request that A+B be added, since I heavily use it for easier IADs and such.

A+B shortcut doesn't exist on keyboard. (If I'm mistaken, then by all means do tell me, but I couldn't find it and others confirmed it wasn't there) Hence no top players use A+B on keyboard, because, well, it isn't there.

This use to happen when I wasn't in full screen mode and what I did to fix it was just click on the caster dos window and then click on the mb window and that fixed the issue.  I suspect that XP believes that the game is running in the backround and thus the beeping noises occur ... or something like that  :psyduck: ...

I am not hating on Veteru, but he isn't a top player. He's pretty damn good mind you.

Caster only reads directional input from the X/Y axis of the assigned pad, whereas MBAC itself reads from both the X/Y axis and the POV hat. The D-pads on X360 pads and sticks are seen as a POV hat. This is a known issue with the DirectInput support and will be addressed in a future release.

Arlieth ... A game should be played to have fun ... not to win ... but winning is fun  ;D ... Damit now I'm confused  :psyduck:
Playing to win and playing for fun are NOT mutually exclusive, almost all people that play to win (save for sellout 'pro' gamers) have a blast playing their games.

Thinking in black and white is only going to ruin your perception on things.

My friend cannot seem to use the d-pad on his Xbox360 controller, but it's usable offline.
Any suggestions~nyo?
Thanks in advance~nyo.

Temporary fix until something better can be cooked up: Have him try using the third party XBCD360 drivers - they'll allow him to configure the controller so that Windows sees the digital pad input as X/Y axis input, though the XBOX360 headset won't function while those drivers are in use.

As a side note for keyboard users who want to use the combination keys - You might try looking for a program called PPJoy which can be used to create virtual gamepads/joysticks. It comes bundled with a program called PPJoyKey, which can be used to pass keyboard input to a virtual gamepad created by PPJoy. I did a brief test a few days ago, and was able to trick MBAC into thinking that my keyboard input was a genuine gamepad, though a friend of mine has had some issues getting it to work for him. It's an extremely messy work around, though - but something to consider if you really can't live without the combination keys and/or your keyboard doesn't much care for multiple inputs at the same time - which is an entirely valid concern, if you ask me.

I Used the mbcaster and played on my LAN and it worked well. The only problem i had was i  used my X-box controller to play and it did not accept the D-pad and i had to use analog stick. Other than that it was good.

MBAC has no problem recognizing my dpad on my 360 controller. Also, I still cannot get mbcaster to work. I'm fairly certain that it is an issue with my system. Is there anything aside from gameguard that is known to make mbcaster crash? I'm having the same issue with efz.

@Tropsy

Any chance on cleaning up the source code/commenting on important stuff in the code? I think it'd be great for future software development on the program and would entice would be coders (read: me) to help out in the development. I guess I could start by translating the Japanese comments in case there's a need.

Just thought I'd throw that out there.

You type in the internal IP address of the other computer on the lan. To find out what it is, go to the start menu and hit run and type "cmd" then "ipconfig."

The person connecting will need I.P. of the person they are connection to, they will use option 3.
The person accepting the connection will use option 1.
When i did it i just connected at the same time and it worked well (minus the D-pad not working).
P.S. firewalls must be turned off or set to allow mbcaster.

Caster only reads directional input from the X/Y axis of the assigned pad, whereas MBAC itself reads from both the X/Y axis and the POV hat. The D-pads on X360 pads and sticks are seen as a POV hat. This is a known issue with the DirectInput support and will be addressed in a future release.

I just thought I'd drop in and let you guys know: I have found a Workaround for the D-Pad issue: JoyToKey.

http://www.electracode.com/4/joy2key/JoyToKey%20English%20Version.htm (http://www.electracode.com/4/joy2key/JoyToKey%20English%20Version.htm)

Open JoyToKey and map your attack buttons, then click on the 'Others' sidetab, and check the Use POV box. Go back to the Joypads tab and configure the POV to match your keyboard controls for movement. Make sure that Caster is configured to use the Keyboard, and just have JoyToKey running as you play.

Also, this allows you to put multiple buttons on a key, so it IS possible to make an A=B=C key, even though Caster doesn't have it built in yet  ^^

mainly cause it emulates all the buttons on your controller, i remember having some troubles with joy2key on 360 controller i think.

but w/e eliminates input lag more i guess is better


and for the problem, are you using kb or pad/stix
if pad/stix then check to see if you configed the buttons correctly

Someone should update the top of this thing.  I was having MAD desync issues with EVERYBODY and then I turned stage backgrounds to "simple" and it fixed EVERYTHING.  Haven't had a desync since.  Note that this has nothing to do with the processing power of your computer.  Complex backgrounds just interfere with caster for some reason.  Maybe it will be fixed sooner or later.

The program is really amazing  ;D

However, I have a problem: I have 3in1 MagicJoyBox (playing with GC controller), and the thing is my joystick is used, so I can't get it to directions by 100%.

Is there a way to modify the sensibility required for the joystick?

For example, in the game itself, the sensibility is NOT at 100%, so I can play with it with no problem. mbCaster is the one I can't get working. (Directions up-right-left are all right; down is not all right xD, and there isn't any "calibrate" function in its joystick menu)

Thanks nevertheless

it doesn't open in debug-9-mode with mbcaster, though. Any idea, why that happens?

Post by: Keith on November 04, 2007, 07:07:58 AM
The src folder is simply the source code to the program. 99% of the people who use MBcaster will not need this folder. The contents of the exe folder is all you need.

Also Dakanya, do I see Notepad++ in the background of that screenshot? You have good taste.

Title: Re: MBCaster (Netplay Tool)
Post by: dakanya on November 04, 2007, 08:48:37 PM
It is Notepad++ (:

To decrease the chances of a desync, enable your macros (A+B, A+B+C, A+D), set your background setting to Simple, and make sure you both have Neco Arc Chaos unlocked.
Title: Re: MBCaster (Netplay Tool)
Post by: Keith on November 05, 2007, 03:08:41 PM
Also, as a note, from what I've gathered, enabling macros means UNCHECKING the boxes next to them, as counter-intuitive as it may seem.

Also, maybe some desync issues have the same roots as ones in IaMP caster: FPU differences. Two people playing against each other using CPUs that handle floating point operations in different ways may generate desyncs with certain moves. Just throwing it out there.

-Step by step to netplay using mbcaster
-Here's the only line that needs to be changed.
Quote
[INPUT]
inputDevice=255
# Your pad number (starting from 0 for the first pad) or 255 for keyboard.

-Open mbcaster, have it in the right folder and all, get someone to play with. Preferably, have both of you be on the same Hamachi network. If you're going to host, enter in "1" without the "s, then hit the enter key. The other person needs to input "2" minus the "s and then enter in your Hamachi IP, which should be plain to see once you have Hamachi going. Then once they do that, one of you needs to punch in the buffer margin and you're all set.

Oh shit, I know this problem quite well. It's a bitch to fix, and it really requires a bit of research depending on the equipment you have, so the below may or may not work.

The solution to this problem is...

Forwarding your ports. I think there is a universal way to fix this... It took me an hour to figure this out, as I had the same problem but let me give it a shot in helping you out.

Go to your Network folder somewhere hidden in your comp, not sure exactly where it is, but look for it. (I have Vista btw, so unno where it is in other Operating Systems)

If you're using a router, it should be listed there in that folder. Click it, and wait as it loads...

Unno about you, but with my router, it opens up a window in Firefox for me with, and its like a personal site for my router. It also asks for a password and username to use the router. If you haven't put some personal thing on it, the username's probably just admin, and password's  nothing.

From there, there should be a tab or something, (in my case "Advanced") which gives you options on how to forward a port for LAN stuff like MBAC and XBC for Halo.

Name your port, it really doesn't matter what it is, it's for you to know its use.

Afterwards, it asks for your private IP, that is something you'll have to research yourself. Private IP is something different from your normal IP, and is more like the IP of the private network you have set up at home. You have to use command prompt or something to figure it out yourself. I'm not sure quite how myself, since my friend found it out for me before, but if you get stuck here, I'll ask my friend to help out. Note that this is the hardest part of the opening port thing, if everything else works smoothly.

Pick protocol type to UDP, and Private and Public port should have 7500 typed in.

There should be an enable option availiable, make sure that's coloured in. If there's a schedule option, pick always. Afterwards, click an ok, or accept, or whatever you have on that screen.

When you've done this, go to MBCaster and press 8, put in your private IP and Port 7500, and it'll test to see if ur port really is opened.

Yea, I think you would be bound to have problems, so post back on anything that doesn't work.
Title: Re: MBCaster (Netplay Tool)
Post by: Twinniss on November 13, 2007, 09:33:39 PM
lol wow didnt know vista had a direct link to your router

anyways its the same if you were to log in with a web browser



as for all the other problems MBcaster will only work on WinXP/Vista (i had 2000 before and i only upgraded because MBCaster wasnt working)

@NinjaNero: Me and my friend are trying to use the relay for some netplay. We have tried ports 7500 and 51001 but both dont work for him. I'm working fine, but he's the one who cant connect. (I have netplayed many times already but i have no knowledge with port forwarding so i can't help him)

@KidPhantom: I'll get him to see this and make him try it out.

@Twinniss: His debug works, he also got the latest version of MBACverB and MBCaster. He's also running on XP

To get your private IP you can do either start->run->cmd->ipconfig. for windows 98 it's command instead of cmd.
or
right click on your network connection in the system tray or the network connections folder (if you don't have that easily accessible, there should be a link there from my network places), then click status and then the support tab. It's listed under IP address.

YOu don't need net play for two people you can go to team and set you as the same team and play the com. if you wanted to play with more than two people then netplay (or a 4 player patch) would be nessary.
But i agree one would be nice.

Can please someone help me with that :/? I read through the whole thread
but didn't find any solution. Well, i have opened ports , everything works,
but my friend can't connect. Her mbacPC.exe opens normally, and the game works fine,
it doesn't open in debug-9-mode with mbcaster, though. Any idea, why that happens?
We already seemed to connect through relay, but while the game opened on my side it didn't on hers. It seems to load something but closes down immediately.
Thanks in advance

Well, i know this is extremely late but unless i missed something no one else gave an answer that fixed the problem.  I had the same problem when i was trying to use a pad with the input for config_caster set to 255. if thats your problem open config_caster and change the value to 0. Do the opposite if your trying to use keyboard and the value is set to 0.

Also, do you have MBAC v 1.03a and when you open mbacpc.exe to the little menu where you can select full screen or small screen and set your pads up does it say 1.03a at the top. When i patched to 1.03a i had to manually copy and paste in a couple of the files and press yes when it asked if i wanted to overwrite them. i think they were from the file folder in MBAC Ver 1.03a patch.

Well, hopefully that is of some help. good luck.

um no, you only goto the config_caster.ini file if you want to change it so it works on keyboard or if it works on joypads

anyways just open up the game normally, and there will be pad1 button in pad config

config your joypad there.

If you cant move during netplay thats when you break out the Xpadder, change the config to keyboard, and map all the buttons on your joypad to a key on the keyboard

I am not very good with networking things so I really have no idea what might be the problem. When he would try to connect to me his would say targeting then stop. When I try to connect to him it just goes straight back to the menu. Now when I tested my port it said that UDP 7500 recieved no signal. So I went to my control panel and added that port to the firewall. It still says the same thing. Any suggestions?

If you have a router, you're gonna have to open the port on it too.

However Hamachi prevents the need for all this if you're lazy.

So, (correct me if I am wrong), if you connect to a hamachi server, then all of the people within the server can access without setting their router up to accept the port (because they are all on the same server)? The only thing hamachi does is this one thing? Or is there more to it that I am missing.

Yeah. Basically, that's all Hamachi's used for in mbcaster.

Because Hamachi kinda sets up a fake LAN. Over the internet.

To get MBCaster to work on Vista:

Start by going to your desktop shortcut of MB and MBCaster (or the actual .exe files, either or). Right click on the file, go to properties,  then go to the compatability tab. From there, click on the "Run this program in Compatability mode", then select Windows XP Service Pack 2. With this, its set up to run it via Windows XP. You may or may not also need to check the box at the bottom of the tab page for "Run as Administator". I have both of them clicked on, but I'm not too sure you really need them. Having Administator on, just means you hafta click "Allow" when the program is running.

By using the Compatability mode, you'll be able to use MBCaster on Vista without a problem. If you still are having problems, then make sure your patches are up to date, as I didn't do that and spent an extra 24-48 hours 'cause I forgot about it. There you have it. A wonderfully easy way to get MBCaster to work on Vista.

Bind error means that the port is in use by another application.

Some people's routers fail it and you can't connect. Has absolutely nothing to do with the game itself.

Additionally, when there's more than one spectator around, you're actually spectating through one of the other people watching, not the original hosts. So if they have router issues or are blocking stuff, then you're pretty much screwed.

One of the reasons I have Get Information report the remote address is so that you can try to spectate the _other_ guy playing, which gets around that.

Cool stuff, yunalove. I was doing a netplay keymapper for myself, but you were faster. Though I did make it the formal way :V

Edit: you have a mail, sir.

Hi, new member here, and was hoping someone could help me w/my problem... I've played online a few time w/a friend, and I'd always host, but suddenly i got this error message:
(http://i48.tinypic.com/yo4rl.jpg)

I tried redownloading mbcaster, and i still get this message... plus, I always seem to lag by 1/2 a second whenever I connect to someone else...

If you need them, here are my settings regarding the controls, which I think are default...

[INPUT]
inputDevice=255
# Your pad number (starting from 0 for the first pad) or 255 for keyboard.

# Keyboard inputs. Check keycodes.txt for appropiate numbers.
kLeft=0xCB
kRight=0xCD
kUp=0xC8
kDown=0xD0
kA=0x31
kB=0x32
kC=0x33
kD=0x34
kQ=0x24
kAD=0x25

# The values below are only used in broadcast mode
inputDevice2p=1

kLeft2p=0xCB
kRight2p=0xCD
kUp2p=0xC8
kDown2p=0xD0
kA2p=0x31
kB2p=0x32
kC2p=0x33
kD2p=0x34
kQ2p=0x24
kAD2p=0x25

# For controllers with POV Hats (e.g: XBox 360 controller), this sets
# the angular sensitivity for the diagonals.
# Valid range is from 90 to 179.
povHatSensitivity = 135

I have a quick question. Is it possible just to use the address used for the game IaMP (mizuumi.net)? Since it is the same kind of client I wasn't sure if it would work. I have everything else working. I am just wondering if that would work because I honestly would remember that over the few IP I have going between houses.

HeroKing, what are you trying to do using option 4?

1 for hosting
2 for connecting into ip
3 for spectating
4 for error

just type the right option and you're good to go
