now i am new to the dreamcast scene and i have yet to experience online play with it, or any console for that matter, and i have a few questions about online play with this game. do pretty much all of you people who go to these organized events live in europe or something? because i live in the united states at gmt -6 so thats a full 7 hours behind if my calculations are right. and an event at 9 pm would mean 2pm for me which is bad with school goin on. so are there any north american organized events? also how well does the game run on a dial up connection. i dont even have a high speed connection for my computer just dial up. and just 1 more question, is the online play really that good or do you people just play it because its an online dreamcast game and there are only about 3 or 4 others left? if this game actualy works with dial up and im able to find online matches at a time that actually works for me id buy it.

No, I'm in the US. If I had to guess, I would say it's about half-and-half Europe-Americas

I sometimes schedule some events on saturday, 8pm in los angeles. Try scheduling your own events and see if people come. Try to give 5 days notice if you can.

The game runs perfectly with lag in only rare situations. Starlancer is only compatible with dial-up, so it was designed to be stable with up to six people in one game.

I like the online play a lot. I've been online for about 3 years off and on. It takes some getting used to, but fighting against real people, as opposed to mindless drones, is rewarding and challenging.

I think that we are very lucky that the only games we have left online are the best. 6 player online starlancer is awesome Mr. Green its the best feeling when you get a kill (especially how everyone else is better than me, you try getting a kill on mertens Laughing )
Also starlancer is very easy to get online, no codes or special settings.
Starlancer was my first game online and i would definately advise this game, hope this helps Smile , lozz.

yea i was lookin at a copy on ebay but im only 15 without a checking account or paypal or whatever so i have to ask my parents if they will use their account to buy it. if i do get this it will be my first online game and lookin at the small selection of games left online it may be my only game i get my hands on that is online unless unreal tournament makes an amazing comeback and goes back online. i may also look into 4x4 evo and max pool since i wouldnt have trouble finding opponents since they are able to do pc vs dc, i think. o yea one more question, do you have to use a keyboard to talk in the lobby on starlancer?

EDIT: bought it for 10.75 usd with shipping, i thought that was a good deal and i should be able to play you guys online the next 2-5 days depends on how fast ups is.
