Who wants to play Super Famicom Wars online?
« on: February 08, 2019, 09:23:32 pm »
Hey, folks. I've been enjoying the heck out of the Super Famicom Wars English translation for the past year, but mostly as a single-player game. I did manage to get a buddy to play a couple matches with me in person, but I'm hoping to find a few more experienced players who are interested in online play via an emulator. I'd like to do a 2v2 co-op campaign against the computer on the highest difficulty and set up some 1v1 and 2v2 competitive matches. If there's enough interest in competitive matches, maybe we could set up a small league.

One issue with SFW is that a lot of the maps aren't particularly fair, so we'd have to agree on which stages are considered legal (probably mainly ones that are symmetrical or perfect mirror images and thereby give both players equal resources). For four-player maps, free-for-alls might be fun, but they would be unfair since players can just gang up on whoever is winning — so 2v2s are probably the best way to play competitively.

If you think you might be interested, please let me know so we can start figuring out the logistics.
Sneko, the Super Nintendo Entertainment Kitty, wishes you luck.

Good luck looking for players.
Now you're playing in... three dimensions.

This sounds like a blast, actually! I'll have to get a copy of Super Famicom Wars, but for now, send me a PM so we can discuss communications (Discord, etc.).

I was planning to use SNES9x. I haven't tested it yet, but it does have built-in netplay support.
