Give me a little bit, I'll post it later tonight. Gotta finish something first, working on rendering APIs sucks.

There's broadband "speed" (bandwidth) and then there's latency (travel time) . A link cable is probably sending small amounts of data, but with virtually no latency. Sending data over the internet introduces significant latency no matter what your "speed" is. At best you could probably get Netlink via VOIP type results.

Anyone know how many bits the serial connection uses on the DC? Surly it cant just be one bit


I think it is 2Mbps. Could be wrong

Man, i pretty much play XLink Kai every day, with my Original Xbox.. Tony Hawk, XIII, Dead Man's Hand.. Counter-Strike..

Hell yeah, LAN would be cool but i'm going to be straight forward with you: The developers of XLink honestly don't care about requests and this has been brought up in their official discord many times with mostly negative attitude. If this was really going to happen, custom tunneling software would need to be written; You won't be able to rely on Xlink. The developers are *****, usually. I've starred that word just to be clean towards the community, but it's brutally true.

I do however think the servers, as PC said, would be a better idea and definitely more 'efficient' in the long run.

Sorry to bump; I just wanted to clarify this.

Easiest way to play these games would be over something like parsec. If someone made a usb to dc adapter people could play off a real console instead of emulation.
