  1. http://www.portforward.com/ forgot to inlude the link for port forwarding simple guide on how to do it.
  2. Some notes on the release: This is very important. Port forwarding needs to be setup for the matching to work properly. Please head to your router configuration and open port 7845 for TCP. Do not forward UDP; there is no need. Just TCP.. If you are unsure how to do this, check out the port forwarding guides for instructions on how to do this tailored to your router. Scroll down the page and click on your router. Then click "skip advertisement." You do not have to pay for anything on the site. The process usually does not take more than a couple minutes. To configure your game pad controls, open up the Xband/ZSNES folder, and click on ZSNESW.exe. Click the "config" menu, click "Input 1", and configure your controls. Do this before you start Xband, so that your controls are ready before game time.
  3. Team LagunaKrazy has released the newest update of their Xband 2.0 service beta. The biggest change- gaming is now supported! The team has been hard at work ironing out bugs, and I can confirm that the multiplayer matching is working well. This release features Super Mario Kart and NBA Jam gameplay built-in, so no need to worry about retrieving other downloads. Go ahead- grab a gamepad and let's play! Changes from Beta 2 to Beta 4 (Beta 3 was not released publicly) -Multiplayer gaming! -Taunt screen implemented for before the match-see who your opponent is -Xmail fixes -Player list fixes -Taunt and profiles added, player list feature added Some notes on the release: This is very important.

Post bugs and discuss the beta here, and bug reports can also be sent by addressing an X-mail to "Xband". Without futher ado, here is the download. Happy Xbanding!
  4. Yessir. www.saturnleague.com for now Check the xband 2.0 thread. The front page of saturnleague should be showing updates on releases of xband2.0 which should be tonight or tomorrow i would think at the latest. Xband2.0 also has a chatroom in the software where users can hang out as well.
  5. We havn't tried 97 and 98 yet but ill see what i can find out about them. we're using a diffrent emulator than gens right now that works perfectly without major lag. as for the snes version of nhl 96 i havn't tried that other than a quick play through i didnt seem to have any issues but then again i didn't play it in depth. ill see what i can find out. im sure when we try to implement it we'll come across it. If we can stream ram and pull out specific stuff from the roms (scores, timers, ect) and other data on the fly to make this work with xband im sure we can get the rom working properly on the emulator even if it means patching.
  6. As for stats it tracks wins and losses but no specific in depth stats. that might be added later on if we want to expand on the xband idea more. As for the NHL series we are going to support 95-96 to start with and then since 94 seems to be pretty popular i dont see why we couldnt add support for it. No nhl games are working yet with patches on the network but they will be soon hopefully. i cant say that they work perfectly yet as we havn't tested them but we are definatly lookin into implementing them and supporting them. Hopefully we can tweak the netplay a bit and get good results. There shouldn't be much lag if any at all the way we have the network setup to match players (latency is taken into account) BTW thanks for the offest info on where to get the stats in the save files this may come in handy later if we decided to implement stuff. What would help us out is if you guys had a hacked or update version of the nhl 95 and 96 roms with any bugs fixed. we'd like to start with a rom that doesn't have any special stuff in it other than fixes to fix bugs that were shipped with the game. Anyway ill keep you guys updated as things progress. we plan on adding a fighting game next (Mortal kombat, or street fighter) next and another sports game hopefully (nhl series.)
  7. Im glad you guys ask questions, most people havn't replied to a post yet but have browsed our site and signed up. id rather explain it to someone who doesn't know so they understand rather than assuming it does something it doesn't. Xband may or may not be for you, but here is what it does. Xband2.0 uses Zsnes and will search for another opponent based on skill and ranking stats and ping using its own coded program. you can also challenge people directly as well. Best part is you can randomlly get challenged or play your friends. The software is easy to use and comes with everything you need as well. the program will find your opponent and launch the zsnes emulator itself and connect itself. you dont have to do ANYTHING except choose "challenge". (yes its that easy). You might have to port forward a certain port on your computer if your running a router and heavy firewall but thats it. Currently, mario kart (battle/match race) is supported as well as NBA Jam TE for now as both roms have been patched to lock out any option changing and it directs both users directly to 2 player mode. most roms will be like this to avoid any cheating options or unfair advantages for each player. Other games for snes including Killer instinct, mortal kombat series (2, and 3) will be supported as well as super street fighter 2, madden 95, 96, nba live series, ect ect and a few others. We will also add support for other games that were not on the original xband as well eventually after the original few are supported XMail is an internal messaging system used on xband to send your friends messages to play games or submit messages to xband to allow you to sign up for a tournament (if there is one running) as well as keep in touch with friends. I guess you can use whatever client you would like to (ie aim or trillian or MSN) but the point is that its in the software and its easily accessable and will be shown real time to the other player if their online. if their offline it saves it in their inbox (just like email) and they can read it later when they sign on. Xband news gives new up to date info on tournaments happening on xband as well as other gaming news AND will display the top 10 highest ranked players each month for each game As far as taunts its basically a message box you can enter a creative challenge message or something vulgar if you want that displays with your use profile and profile icon while the game is being setup and about to launch. It adds a little excitement. can you do without it? sure i guess but it makes it just feel that much more competative. Keyboards are allowed, we figured most people would like to play the classics using the original snes controller via usb but there isn't anything that says you HAVE to use a controller. by default the program runs off keyboard which is configurable. Xband is NOT just for snes. genesis will be supported shortly after with the same games and more. We might be able to add NHL 94 if you guys really want it. Player stats will be kept and xband even has its own point system that ranks you based on how many matches you've played and depending on the opponents skill level your match will be worth either more points (if the user your matched with has a better track record with wins that you) or less if he has less wins than you. the points ultimately allow you to advance and get diffrent titles based on how many games you've played and your win/loss ratio Currently the stats system is under construction and more details are still yet to be revealed on it. Its not implemented just yet but will be shortly.
  8. Ok guys, im sure some of you know what Xband is, if not look it up on wikipedia. Basically we've re-created Xband on the PC using emulators and having our own front end program written to launch and connect to opponents. it also keeps track of stats and has xmail and you can get xband news and bandwidth as well as keep track of your friends with a player list. yes it will support NHL 95 and 96 eventually as well as host tournaments. Xband 2.0 for the pc is in Beta 3 right now and features gameplay and match making with player lists. In addition to this, we've also got Xmail messaging system and taunts. Stats are not kept at this time the dev team is still working on the stats database. Currently only two games are supported (NbaJam TE, Mario Kart (battle and match race)) BUT more will be supported including NHL95 and NHL96 Keep your eye on saturnleague.com for the download link here shortly within the next day. Play as many games as possible and please report any bugs or suggestions or report any gameplay issues by sending an Xmail to Xband. Remember, this is a beta and the GUI is not final and is very much under construction still. And dont forget your USB Snes control pads. it makes life soo much easier than using a keyboard.
