How many of you have played other people SNES online using Zsnes?

Lately, I've been playing Bell-Chan Mario Kart and two player FF4 (she owns in mario kart... :(). It's great fun. Any of you other people even play?

Yea... but I want to play Yugi Oh advance online.... now that would be cool

Yugioh EDS on GBA is cool.

Anyways, if you go to the option screen in FF4 you can assign characters in your party to either P1 or P2. So in battle you'll both control your selected characters. Whoever is P1 moves around on the map. Oh, after you select who gets who, you can't "accidently" control their characters in battle, so it's pretty sweet.

As for internet play.. Bell-Chan has dsl and I have cable, so it worked cool.

So far I've beaten Mario Kart with BC, and Donkey Kong Country 2 with my GF.

Talking about Zbattle net right? Yeah, Try Kirby Super Star. But whoever is first player must be really good in the game. I would play more often but...
*Kirby still using phone line...* T_T

Mario kart is fun... what else is good.You can't cheat on Zbattlenet, right? Too bad... I have some custom codes for Turtles in time... Uhmm, try Gundam Wing Fighting game (Gundam Wing: Endless Duel). That game kicks ass :D

Mario Kart is just more fun with two people! :D Oh yes, let's continue FF4 later, right?

Hmm... I think SNES9x has online play too....
It does! I wonder if it works with ZNES also...
Hmm... too bad the only remotely 2-player game I have right now is Kirby's Super Star ^^;

12-13-2002, 05:02 PM
Yeah, I beat all the 2 player adventures in Kirby SS with the GF.. cept for the race and one where you have to play by yourself.

Play everyone! I command it! :D

Oh! You can cheat! You can still save state... so if you mess up in Kirby or Turtles in time.. "F4 to load state" ... repeat.

Yeah, I know. but that kind of puts all my hard worked codes to waste... Oh wait... I have a mem modifier program...

I tried connecting with my friend to play Super Mario All-Stars with SNES9X, but we couldn't figure it out. ^_^;

It sounds like such a fun idea, though ~~

I haven't tried it personally, but this would be great if it worked with multitap games like Super Bomberman, Secret of Mana, and Seiken Densetsu 3.

you can do it online?? where? how?

This is for L to the Third (or anyone else who would like to know) how to play via the net with a friend.

Step Zero: DL zsnes off of www.zsnes.com . I suggest version 1.377 since it's the best with net play.. and rumors are that newer versions have many glitches.

Step One: Start ZSNES

Step Two: Click on the "netplay" icon

Step Three: Click on the "internet" icon

Step Four: Enter nickname

Step Five (if hosting): Give your friend your IP number which is located under the "connect to server" icon

Step Six (if hosting): Click on the "Start as Server" button

Step Five (if connecting): Get your friends IP number and put it in the box which asks for IP (under client options)

Step Six (if connecting): Click connect to server

Step Seven: Click load icon (like when playing normally)

Step Eight: Pick rom (either player, ONLY one person do it :P)

Notes you need to know:

1. If you can't seem to connect to your friend, it must mean one of you have firewall. To connect when someone has FW, both of you must unclick the "allow UDP" icon found in the internet connection area under the IP.

2. You and your friend must have the SAME exact rom. By that, I mean literally the same one (name and type). To make sure they are, send the other person your version of the rom via AIM.

3. If you sent/recieved the selected rom, make sure you/they put the rom in the folder with the rest of their games (of if you don't have one, let them load the rom from wherever they decide to put it)

4. Most roms for SNES can be found on www.vimm.net The dl speed is always slow though. :-/

5. Whoever hosts the game will contain the save file. That means if you host once in a RPG, you'll most likely have to host everytime if you wish to continue playing your file.

6. You must have the same version of ZSNES as your friend. I also heard that the newest version doesn't work well with net play. I suggest DLing version 1.337, it works the best for net play.

7. You can cheat via saving and loading state (F2 and F4), but if your connections are slow it CAN take a while to send the state.

8. If you have 56k, I seriously hope you don't have firewall. Because without UDP connection, it's really slow for 56k users... but you never know, try it both ways.

9. To type to your friend while playing, press T, then type what you have to say and press enter. It'll then appear at the bottom of the screen. It's really helpful in some games, and it's good for cracking some jokes during play.

I suggest you play Mario Kart, FF2, Secret of Mana, Kirby Super Star or any good two player side scroller. If you really have the time, play your friend Romance of the Three Kingdoms pt. 4.

If you need any help, feel free to IM me at TrunksSS61 via AIM. Oh, yes... a "thank you" would be appreciated. :D :crylaugh: Have fun!!

Oh, and I'm excepting ANY challengers in Mario Kart... I will OWN YOU ALL! :)

Omg Seiken Densetsu 3 with other people would sooo r0x0r...


12-16-2002, 09:52 PM
I would call Hawkeye first, Kevin second in SD3. Boy or Girl would be ok in 2, just as long as I don't get stuck with Sprite. ;)
