New: A P2P Version of Kaillera for Gens!

Recommended Posts

swos showed me something quite revolutionary tonight: a kaillera client that makes kaillera into a p2p application instead of client-server.

Kaillera p2p client

I've used it and it's legit as far as I can tell. The instructions for installation are all there and yeah, it's a little weird to set up, but this should really help with Gens netplay, mainly since it equalizes ping for both players. I was playing with swos tonight and he called it the best connection he's ever had against a North American player (he's Finnish). We should give it consideration for future leagues, especially in cases where there's a real ping discrepancy.

Again: READ THE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY. Yes, you have to have CAPS LOCK on when you start up Gens for it to work.

I'm bumping my above post because I feel like it and more people will see it now. If you don't like it, well...ok, we can still be friends. :unsure:

I'm guessing nobody really gets the ramifications of it i.e. equalized ping for both players and no reliance on a server.

Hey man, don't have to tell me twice. This could be the answer for international Gens play. Tick, so what's been your experience so far? If it's smooth with Swos, this could be excellent. Zbattle is similar, and I've had much better smooth connections using that over Gens. Give me a 36-hour day and we could research this quickly.

It's not foolproof. There is still some lag and dropping issues.

It's been great with the Fins, but the only time I tried it with someone in North America, James and I desynched several times. Odd, but I still think it's promising because geez, it worked well with the Fins. swos called it the best connection he's ever had for a transatlantic game.

I have a PSP with a GREAT wireless internet connection, so i guess this would atleast bring me up a little higher on the waiting list! haha..
