Typing of the Dead - Network => Game Lag
« on: January 04, 2010, 12:47:21 PM »
This would be a question for those who know about the game, and those who have tried the network feature of the game out (I doubt many of you have).

I am trying to play the game via network with a friend (SP is fine), where during the game it seems to compensate for network (100ms) in return for perfect sync, which results in ~one frame per second and a similar timescale, and therefore is absolutely unplayable.


Anyone know anything at all in how to allow for normal network play with Typing of the Dead non-physically (not decreasing latency, not obtaining new equipment/etc.)?  I know it's an old game, so that probably is the issue here--I'll be surprised if anyone here knows about the game, let alone the issue here.
I'd take a sea worm any time over a hundred emotionless spinning carriers.

Not sure what to recommend regarding your issue, but I've at least heard of the arcade game. What a peculiar game. :P

Well oddly, SEGA decided to release it on the PC.  =\
