    so i got a pc and a stick, and enough cps-2 roms to keep me happy for a long time. soi downloaded and installed the GGPO client, as its supposed to be pretty lag free and a good way of playing fighting games that have never had the luxury of having online modes.

    i was hoping to play some vampire saviour but had issues logging in last night....

    so anyone else here use it? or interested?

    I use it, but haven't logged there for a long time. Did you set the ports right and everything?

    no idea XD

    i kinda just hoped it was a install and go thing. did it late last night so didn't have time to mess much. the urge to play vamp against real people just got too strong.

    ill dig about tonight, see if i can get it to work. all it did was stay on the login screen after i clicked the button, didn't do anything at all.

    ggpo is an emulator with online components, or at least it comes packaged with one. fusion i think.

    other than that mame32 for all your cps1/2/3 needs. i guess this means capcom's avp has online mp now...

    Yeah, you can play them using the emulator that comes with GGPO, called ggpofba.

    Oh -thanks.
    I thought GGPO was like a plug in for emus or something.

    I might have to dabble.

    I've been hoarding roms since 2001 for arcade emulators. I've got Callus, Finalburn for both CPS-1 and CPS-2 games, Mame, Neo-Geo....

    Finding roms is not a problem. I'll dl GGPO and try it out this evening. I don't dare do it earlier as I'll forget about my daily chores and be having fun with GGPO all day. I can't remember the last time I gave my favorite arcade games a try.

    I've got hankerin' for some Samurai Shodown/Spirits, some capcom classics and such. I suppose GGPO will be able to facilitate online coop play for games like D&D, King of Dragons, Revenge of Death Adder?
