Playing Multiplayer SNES Games With People Hundreds of Miles Away

Jeff Matson figured out how to play multiplayer SNES games using Retroarch. Although it was laggy at first, we’ve made a few adjustments and now it plays smoothly with little lag. It’s a joy to be able to play SNES games with people hundreds of miles away.

I’ve ordered a retro SNES controller from Amazon because playing games with the keyboard absolutely sucks.  Once it arrives later this week, I’ll let you know how it is as I’ve read some reviews commenting on the quality of the D-Pad and sticky buttons.

Although it took a few games, I managed to beat Matson fair and square with Stockton and Malone from the Utah Jazz in NBA Jam TE. NBA Jam is an excellent game because there is a small learning curve and it’s anything goes basketball. It’s one of my favorite games from the 90s and one I didn’t realize was on the SNES. I thought it was only available on the Sega Genesis.

I win!

I win!
