I'm up for it, but I lag pretty badly on some of the servers due to where my dial-up number is located.

Looks like the best time for me is tomorrow afternoon (Sunday) around 3-4pm central time or so. I lost some time on Friday on some tasks so I am playing catchup today. Do you have an xmpp/Jabber account? You can hit me up on there to reach me in realtime.

I just play to play, and I am well aware of the advantage difference between say Keyboard/Mouse and a Controller, and Broadband vs Dialup. I try not to pay too much attention to the score and am usually happy to just be playing with a fellow Dreamcast Online player Wink So no worries if you are lagging a bit on dialup. We are all sort of used to it because the Dreamcast is from that early late 90's era of online gaming.

No I don't have either of those accounts, but that sounds good and as far as I currently know I'll be able to get on around that time . Very Happy

I also just play to experience the Dreamcast online and have a bit of fun, I haven't really decided if it's worth it for me to buy a Dreamcast keyboard and mouse yet so I'll be using a controller, and regarding the Broadband Adapter unless someone starts independently manufacturing them for a reasonable price or the ones on eBay drop over $100 in price it's just not happening. So I guess it'll be dial-up for me for awhile. Smile

I'm trying a different California number, but I seriously need to find one closer. Did you see how bad my signal was?

lol yea you were seriously in the red

Wait you are in Central US right? Finding a different cali number isn't going to help. You need a local ISP. Physical location to the ISP is pretty important with regards to dialup.

Yes I'm in the central U.S., but what I meant was to find one that works but that was the only one that did, now it's having problems so I'm searching for a closer one.

Okay man I think I am going to power down for now. Good games Wink We will have to play again once you get some more stuff sorted out with your ISP situation.

Haha yeah sorry about that, I was very disappointed I couldn't play a good round. I'll keep trying to find a good free one and I'll let you know when I'm able to play again.
