    SummEr's asked me to check how big replays are... well, I'm happy to say that a replay of a 4 round match (3-1) took up only 32KB! And the replay contains ring names and customized character outfits too. Maybe we should set up a replay exchange center...

    I brought up that idea long time ago, that's why I was so interested in knowing how big/small the save files would be...only problem is...uhm..where do we upload our replays to?

    We most definitely should! Especially now since it will make it easier to setup a central place for these (sort of the XS Reality of VF4 replays/versus/images/icons/wink.gif -- with better design to boot).

    I'm sure I could handle a few replay files...

    It'll be rad when the PS2 emulator comes out. Then we can get replay files on the PC and play them via the emulator. Sort of like VF2 PC replay files.


    Incidentally, someone started a rumor about bleem being able to play PS2 games. I haven't seen any proof of that, but I can confirm that VF4 is NOT one of them... =(

    An ideal replay exchange website should have the following, IMHO:

    User input fields:
    - text fields for 1P and 2P ring names
    - drop down menus for 1P and 2P ranking level
    - drop down menus for 1P and 2P characters
    - upload text box and button

    Automatic input fields:
    - date uploaded
    - name of registered user uploading the replay
    - system should check the .xxx file type to see if it's legit (and also a file size check, maybe under 100kb)

    Registration facility:
    - all users may view and download replays
    - only registered users may post replays
    - a registered user may delete his/her uploaded replays or edit replay info
    - only registered users may rate replays (to prevent vote spamming)
    - registration should be linked to a REAL email address (to prevent vote spamming)

    Ascending/descending sort:
    - ring names
    - ranking level
    - characters
    - date uploaded
    - rating (by registered users)

    Update: I tested out a 5-round, 45 second battle (time out every round) with two VF.net characters, replay size is only 36KB!

    Sounds like a great idea!

    I'd be more than happy to put a section up on VP for PS2 replays. No problem. People can email them to virtuaproject - we'll set up an address like replays@virtuaproject.com - and we'll put them up for people to DL.

    cheers!

    try time out while mashing buttons with each character /versus/images/icons/smile.gif See how much space that takes up.

    Since we're already at 36Kb...time overs, etc. shouldn't even bring this to over 100Kb. Imo, a replay of 1M would even be fantastic. VP has a gig of space - so there's lots of room available.

    cheers,

    If you're going to do this, do not get a Shark Port. Make sure you get an EMS PS2 Memory Card adaptor. You can check their site out at http://www.hkems.com and you can either order it directly from them or from http://www.lik-sang.com. This is a much better solution than what is available in the US.
