Multiplayer on NDS
Just wondering if anyone has tried it, and how it is. The few times I've logged on, it just sits looking for games and nothing ever comes up....
It is working, but finding games can take a while, so be patient. Try searching for two player, fast turn, then it should be quite easy to find someone. When searching for 4 player games I think most people choose slow turn time, so try search for this.
I've been luck enough to get a game or two, and fourtuntly I haven't encountered any bugs in the multiplayer. There's no lagging either. (or at least for me.) I was on an island stuck with an AI fighting them while all the other players, according to my foreign advisor were involved in a long conflict.
But yeah, you'll enjoy it once you get a match.
Its too bad there isnt a way to view games that are looking for players.
It seems that if there isnt someone out there looking for a match with exacty the same settings you put in, that you wont get a hit ?
So like, you could put in 2 player, fast, no AI handicap, and if someone else put in 2 player, fast, 10% handicap, you would never know they were looking...
Tbonicles: I totally agree with your sentiment there. I really wish I could be given a List of online players, and then sort out the game settings from there. Unfortunately, I don't know if the DS multiplayer system can be fixed with patches like the console gmaes. :C
To the OP: 2 player, Fast/Slow, and No Handicap. You might have to wait a little while. Also: More people are online at certain periods during the day. For me, it's early afternoon, but due to time-zone differences, the influx of players may occur at a different time for you. C:
