Where is netplay? Why is it disabled? When will it be back?

Post by Deathlike2 »

Netplay has been removed from the source for two reasons.
1) In order to improve the movie code, netplay had to be decoupled since netplay was dependent on it.
2) The netplay code simply isn't good. There have been numerous issues with it (we have a Netplay support board after all) and it obviously needs work.

Netplay will be back when core randomness is resolved... Data needs to be consistent between computers and core randomness hurts it. We have yet to identify the source, but eventually the core+sound core will be replaced, which should help deal with the issue. There is no ETA for when it will be back. You can certainly still use 1.36, 1.42, or 1.42n for your netplay needs. 1.42n can also be found here
