Cause SNK is probably focusing on 2k2UM.

NGBC had some of the best netcode SNK has put out on a console and yet it wasn't perfect but much better than their previous attempts. I'm sure this has echoed and it would be beyond stupid of them to have something that is not better than that for one of their most premiere games.

As for 98 on XBL, I seriously doubt we wil ever see any netcode patches. That game and many others like Garou have died because of extremely bad netcodes and it's such a damn shame to.

You're not kidding.  As a Mac user, 98UM on XBL was my one chance to play KOF 98 online against actual people, and SNKP dropped the ball in a big way.  Major letdown, since 98 is easily one of my favorite games ever.

If you want, add me on XBL since I live in NY and you're not that far away from me in Boston. I have a friend who I play and he is in Florida. We actually get some decent matches in. At most, maybe 3 out of 10 will have noticeable lag input.

As a Mac users myself, it's killing me that GGPO and all those other online services are Windows only. I'm eventually just going to try to find someone who knows how to install boot camp on a Mac so I can run a Windows partition. Yeah, it'll only be for GGPO, but at this point I really would love to get the ability to play KOF98, 2k2 and Garou online right on my laptop.

BTW, XBL GT is Positively Ralf. add me and let's see what kind of matches we get in. hopefully not so bad knowumsaying?

Iknowchusaying.  XBL tag is pharaohoffunk.  Finishing up a summer semester at college, and it's finals week, so I don't know how often I'll be on, but I'll definitely add you and see if we can get some decent matches at some point.

You'd think they would patch it but I guess it's too late, there is always OG 98 on GGPO

Very true.  I just hope that this game doesn't die out completely.  It's my favorite KOF :(

well my friend said the online works alot better than Garou motw. so i was thinkin bout buying it...guess its still not good enough? cause Garou was the worst thing ive ever had to deal with.

i'd love to get it on ggpo but i can NEVER get it so that i can fight or connect with others. Does madkatz fightstick work on ggpo?

ive only touched the demo of 98...im total noob to the franchise.

I played 98UM online a bit. From what I played, the lag wasn't as bad as SSF4, but hardly anyone still plays.

98UM online is barely playable.  Nobody really plays, and if you're lucky enough to get a match, there's a slim chance that the connection will be halfway decent.  As stated before, OG 98 on GGPO is definitely the better choice.

Well, I got GGPO working on my comp but now it can't even recognize my arcade stick. Imma see if I can buy some cheapo PC stick and see if it would work.

btw Judge, tried to enter your GT but said it does not exist.

What kind of stick are you trying to use?

Really?  Odd.  I'll try adding you.  Also, you're a Mac user right?  How did you get GGPO to work?
