Closed Beta v5
Hello again everyone!

IT IS FINALLY HERE! v5!

Apologies for it taking so long. But we are confident that we will see some improvements with this version. However, we put our faith in you, our trusty beta testers, to let us know how things are going!

Please be sure to update your game on Steam. It should do so automatically (as long as you are not playing a game). But you can also double check to see if your version has updated by navigating to your KOFXIII local files in Steam, and looking for a file called "closed-beta-v5.txt" (it should be in the same directory as your "game.exe" file).

Updates in this version contain:

- Korean text fix in the Command List explanation screen
- Netcode quality improved
- Delay icons in room search and lobbies should be more accurate now (also, no more speaker icons)
- LK+HP macro should be working now

****************NETWORK PORTS*******************
Also, as noted in another thread, opening up the required Steam ports should improve your online performance too! You can find details regarding Steam ports here: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=8571-GLVN-8711. So please check that out!
**********************************************************

NOTE:
Please remember that the netcode changes have no effect if either you OR your opponent have not updated. So please, everyone update. Also please understand that it may take an hour or two for everyone to update.

We thank you all for your ongoing support and feedback. It's a combination of our efforts as well as the efforts of those here in this community that are driving the improvement of this game. Let's continue working together!

Jace :)

Yay!! Hope it's flawless *-*

Hey, just wanted to give a real quick first impression.
1 Bar matches are absolutely, I repeat absolutely unplayable...which is GOOD
People need to stop with the "it was 1 bar but really good" comments ;D

On the other hand I just played about 6 matches against someone from germany on a 3 bar connection and it was fantastic, felt just about as good as the 4 bar games that I had on ver. 4.1. So I hope that the direction this is going is to make the 3 & 4 bar matches as good as they can! Very awesome so far thanks!

Oh sorry and one more thing, towards the end of ver. 4.1 I experience ALOT of disconnects or just generally not being able to join rooms at all. On ver. 5 this has so far not happened.

Lets just clarify something, on 4.0 and 4.1 even with ppl in a 500kms radius, u werent able to see more than 2 bar connecton, so it gave the impression of something bugged overthere with the real status of the "bars", it was reported several time, even tho, sometimes, you had the luck of the draw while playing someone who is farther than your local beta test mates, I had a 2 bar connection from someone who was in Holland ( i'm from México) and it was GREAT, barely 9.5 out of 10 playable.

Apparently that "bug" is fixed now, let's see hows the netcode tonight.

Jace, to what ping do the bars translate to?
4 bars < 50ms and so on?

Just got done playing a few games with HighOnPCP and it was a 1 bar connection. While it felt better than most that ive played on xbox live playing any neutral game was impossible. Cant wait to try a 4 bar connection. I am in the Midwest USA.

Just played 6 matches against Nedjoe from South Australia to Queensland and the matches were very playable had a little lag spike a couple times but other than that felt good.

Played on & off host.

Edit: These matches were 3 bar.

Yes I agree with Humbag, try and mind those 1 bar games if you can, btw. the mr. karate guide you did back in the day helped me alot at that time, love karate

I playeda person who had yellow bars and was very unplayable, after, I player with a person in Australia (red bar) and was a little laggy but better than man with yellow bar.
