Worthwhile?

How's the Net Play?  More specifically, how's the lag?  Is it worth getting?

Considering it only works for ReAct, and it can lag pretty badly if you're even a couple states away from your opponent...prolly not so worthwhile right now.  Hopefully they get a better netplay for MBACpc though.  =\

If you can get it to work with a reasonable framerate, it might be fun to play, however...  I'm inclined to say that learning how to play MBACvB2 in battle royale mode would be more constructive for learning how to play the actual game.  Netplay is a completely different beast from the original game.

It's pretty fun and I would say worthwhile. If you can't play melty blood offline with anyone else, netplay is the next best thing. Prepare to adjust a lot, though. First of all, you can only play ReAct right now, so combos and timing is all different. The other thing is that there is lag, and it slows down the game quite a bit. This makes some combos that can easily be executed in normal play, i.e. Satsuki's Ex-arm loop, very very hard to do. Even with all that, it's still a lot more fun than playing the crappy computer who never blocks on when getting up.

It is worth. When i play with friends (some are from europe) we use a hight FS and we get a fps of 50. There is almost and somethime no lag at all. If its lag its minor. And its better than play versus comp all the time :P.

We even created an IRC channel on irc.deltaanime.net server and the channel is #meltyblood come join us ^^.

There's already #SRM on mint.sayuri.ca and it is the largest Melty netplay community in existence.

NEW NETPLAY FOR MBAC

Relevant? Yes. MBR netplay is no longer worthwhile at all.
