MAMEnet! The future is close! - July 2, '98 by JoseQ
No wonder why Emulator Authors make us feel respect as if they were gods, they tend to fulfill our wishes as if they were miracles from heaven. The latest miracle comes in the form of MAMEnet, a version of MAME that allows people to play via the Internet. Not everything is as good as it looks yet for various reasons...
First there is the speed and lagg matters. While Sardu managed to add netplay to Callus, the MAME guys are having trouble transmitting the information from one place to another and have gotten unplayable results through modem speeds. Thats not at all bad with house LANs and fast internet connections appearing all over the place. Isn't it time you bugged your cable company for those cable modems? Just tell them you want to play MAME with your friend in Japan.
The new MAMEnet will feature a Chat window where users connect and select the game they want to play.
The best part about this in my personal opinion is that they have kept this on a driver independent model. This means that as new games appear, they will automatically be able to be played on MAMEnet when MAMEnet is merged with all the ports of MAME. This is a process that will likely take some time, but at least this is a big step towards the goal. We congratulate Peter Eberhardy and Michael Adcock for their tremendous dedication and work.
