This main goal of this project is for this latest version port and the addition of new characters. Upon that, for the following reasons there are no planned changes to the online environment.
Currently, we are scheduling to base the net code on Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!!! which is already available on Steam. To change the net code at this point would put us in a situation where we would need to remodel not only the match environment, but the entire network environment as well. This would cost an exorbitant amount both in terms of money and time. There is also the worrisome possibility that if another net code was employed, play records would all reset. Considering also Arcana Heart’s game play (heavy on combos upon hit detection), we have decided that GGPO is not suited to this style of play.
Having fully considered the scenario, these along with other factors have led us to the conclusion that the risk would be too high to employ a different net node, GGPO or otherwise.
We are well aware that optimized online play is of vital importance, and will continue researching GGPO and other strategies so players the world over can have a pleasant match experience.
