death match query

Postby fazeo13 » Sat Mar 08, 2003 6:06 am

Greets doodz

I'm ignorant so I just need some info to elighten me...???please?

1]can you play continent to continent on kali or is there a certain radius?

2]can someone give me directions to the faq for mame kalli gaming?

3]because the games are smaller does that mean less lag 7-9mb Vs 40mb?

4]how do you cut down on lag?

5]can you play a four player beat-em-up on mame using kali Deathmatch style?

eg. four ppl beating up npc and each other just for fun

eg. a game like crime fighters konami 4 players beat-em-up FUN GAME

with a rotation system so that ppl can spectate? and join in when someone dies(take their place?) and have stats so that you can see who are the better players?(just to keep it intresting)

so while 4 guys battle it out when one guy dies another spectator can join in?
almost like a mporg I guess?


so what do you guys say yay? or nay?
does anyone understand the wordd that are coming out of my mouth?

excuse my bad engrish 0_0

cheers later doodz

1]can you play continent to continent on kali or is there a certain radius?


I don't know about KALI (which is a pay gaming service) but in kaillera, yes you can, but your mileage will vary. The farther away you are from each other, the laggier it tends to get.

2]can someone give me directions to the faq for mame kalli gaming?


Not sure where its at right now, but it's actually very simple.

1) Connect to the internet.

2) Start up Mame32k (the "kaillera client").

3) Select "Play Network Game" from the menu.

4) Select a server from the list (refresh list if necessary) and click "connect."

5) Wait patiently.

6) once in game room, "create game" and select one from your list of installed roms, or click on somebody else's game and click "join" make sure you have same emulator version of course.

When done, hit escape to exit game, and then close program(s).


3]because the games are smaller does that mean less lag 7-9mb Vs 40mb?


I'm not sure about this one. Perhaps, because there is less data to send? Though button presses shouldn't take anymore to send. Anybody know?

4]how do you cut down on lag?


1. Upgrade your connection (to broadband).
2. Join servers with lower pings and ones that are geographically closer to you.
3. Play with fewer people in your game and play people with lower pings.
4. Have person with lowest ping and fastest connection be the "host."
5. Join servers with fewer people in them.
6. Don't run any other programs in the background that could be using up your bandwidth (instant messaging, downloads, FTP's, etc.)

5]can you play a four player beat-em-up on mame using kali Deathmatch style?
eg. four ppl beating up npc and each other just for fun


If you mean, can you play a four player game just like in the arcade? Yes. Four player games work just like they do in the arcade.. 4 people vs. the CPU (or each other, if the game originally allowed that too).

eg. a game like crime fighters konami 4 players beat-em-up FUN GAME
with a rotation system so that ppl can spectate? and join in when someone dies(take their place?) and have stats so that you can see who are the better


The only thing you can't do is have people join a game already in progress. We all want this feature, but it isn't here yet. Rotating "hot seats" are in place in some one on one fighting games, and I'm told that in some games where you have more than one person on a "team" like Marvel Vs. Capcom, you can "swap in" when you switch characters. As to spectators, I'm not sure about this.

so while 4 guys battle it out when one guy dies another spectator can join in?


The "hotseat" one on one fighters have this feature I think.

almost like a mporg I guess?


Almost. ; ) DnD almost counts.. though I'd doubt the "massively" part.

Hope that helped... good luck and welcome to the world of online retro-gaming!

Let me add to my last post by saying that "spectators" in a game should be possible... all you have to do is have say four people in a game that only supports three players (like Cadillacs and Dinosaurs) and just have one person not put their credits in and hit "start" until one of the other people has died.

Just have four people start, as if it were a four player game, but only three of them play at any one time, with the other just watching.

They could just keep chatting (with the "T" key) in the background while they watched the game.

Good idea..although you'd have to have friendly people willing to put up with more lag by having one more person who didn't actually play the whole time.

you are very well informed I appreciate your efforts


I haven't been able to sucessfully use kalliera yet . yes I am using kalliera :P

1]the first time I tried there was a lot of chat and things and the second time nothing no luck at all.. the 2nd time I was dl things so thats why my ping was so bad(possible?) what is a good ping?eg 182-139 ( I don't know just an example)

but I'll keep trying

2]so is continent to continent possible?

3] I am on a network it is fast, much faster than 56k if I set ip packet small will it help?

4]also I noticed that you wanted a diffrent multiplayer game !

try Neobomberman great game
but I warn you the luck factor is quite high

but four players should roxxor

5] After much deliberation I've decided that all I want to do is play four player Crimefighters fun game against four ppl

Comatribes should also be kewl but its only 3 players

thanks very much
kind regards

Neo Bomberman isn't 4 players.

For 4 player madness either play Bomberman World (mame) or Mega Bomberman (gens).

Mega Bomberman is such an awesome game to play online 8)
