Can we netplay Mario Party yet?

>> No.5578182

Yes, I have been doing it for years(since 2013-2014?)


Desync happens rarely, usually on the first few bootups, but after once or twice you can play for hours with buddies.

>> No.5578212

How does this whole netplay thing even works in theory? I can understand running emulated servers for games that originally had an online multiplayer like Phantasy Star Online or Resident Evil: Outbreak, but Mario Party 2 only ever had local multiplayer

>> No.5578319

Guessing instances run locally on each computer and have a protocol built into the emulator to sync up the game state.

Can you taunt in the later Mario Parties?

I'd assume it's sending deltas of the RAM since it's small enough.
I run the game, something happens to change the state, I delta that with my previous state and send the delta to you within some set delay window. Maybe handle desync with rollback or full resync or something.

I bet someone else will know.

Exactly this >>5578319
All n64 games run like if playing in the same room. I've been playing using various netplay plugins since 2011 give or take, been working for awhile.

>> No.5578354

Not retro but I want to play the gamecube Mario parties with my friends online. Is that possible now? What about the need for analog controllers?

>> No.5578372

Shoo zoomer, shoo shoo.

>> No.5578374

Yes, you can play all N64 and Gamecube Mario Party games online

>> No.5578397

>anon is a zoomer because they play games that are only 17 years old not 20 years old

>> No.5579438

Why doesnt /vr/ ever have weekly netplay threads? We could be doing tetris attack

>> No.5579439

When Dolphin 5.0 came out, there were netplay sessions for the games on /v/ for a while. We had Kirby Air Ride, too. It was fun.

I dunno about netplay but I'm so happy I just wanted to post I got a sweet yellow N64 cartridge yesterday with Mario Party 1,2, and 3 on it with I think fifteen NES games too. It was $50 the price of Mario Party 3 alone. It saves for each game too!

No one should be ashamed of who the-
>nobody wants to play fucking mario party there
Kill them all.

>> No.5582367

retro netplay is generally a mess for anything that's not running GGPO

>> No.5582505

Just use Parsec.

>> No.5582713

Kirby Air Ride is a different beast entirely, since it and Mario Kart were two of the only game that had the ability to link up multiple Gamecubes to do multiplayer on multiple TVs at once. People have been abusing that functionality to trick Gamecubes into doing online play since 2003.
