Returning back to GFWL
Well, since they annouced that GFWL is not closing, and i hate to say it, but the netcode was way better on GFWL than on Steam. Anyway, to bring it back to GFWL?? or start a petition to do so?

I'd rather they just fix the Steam version.

Well, yea fixing the netcode would be good for now and future fighting games, but its kinda like they "fixed something, that wasnt broken" kinda of thing. I mean dam, GFWL had it issues, but was wayyyy better than it is on Steam. I mean disconnects actually penalize YOU and You lose points in ranked matches thats not your fault. But yea, hopefully it gets better, especially this friday for Ultra....cant wait...

GFWL will be closed forever, that is why all the games had to transition, some games won't get the treatment and will be forever unplayable (sfxt), only a few survived, SSF4AE and Bioshock are 2 of them.

They can't go back to GFWL, they either fix it or ggs.

i just thought about that too, then i noticed that i still have the forum open, it would be great

the worst thing now is, that when it lags my fighting stick isnt working anymore for 10 sec.

Hmm, so it's not just me. I've been wondering why SSF4AE was having such awful connection issues. At first I thought it was because of the shoddy internet at my place, but I just moved and my internet is much more stable now, and the issue ensues.

Every. Single. Match. There is major lag. Slowdowns, lag spikes, "waiting for player" messages, cases where I would lose control of my char for 10 seconds like Simpson said. You name it, it's there.

How could the netcode for this game be THAT bad? Is anyone still supporting the PC version? I mean for crying out loud we paid the same amount of money as any console gamer, and we're being treated like 3rd class citizens in fighting game terms because everyone agrees a legit online match can't happen if there's lag, and there is in every single game that I play now.

Up till now I've been considering getting Ultra, but after testing today, I'm seriously doubting whether it's even worth it. If the netcode is not fixed, SF for PC is dead.

Steamworks is the way but they need to fix it.

Oh man Ultra release on Friday and Capcom sayed they work on Patches.
God damed hell,no one here has played the PS3 Version befor Ultra right?That was a Lag Festival,now you have still Framedrops but mostly playabel Games.DC and waiting for Players are there also and when you now run back to GFWL you will play with less and less Players.GFWL will die at least.

GFWL will remain running but the Games on that platform will never recive updates so you will not be able to play Ultra what people have remained Playing on GFWL will have to move to steam if they wish to play Ultra

what's the point of going back to gfwl when USFIV comes out in 4 days + will only be playable with steamworks? it's too late for gfwl and steamworks just needs a few patches to be truly awesome and better than gfwl...I really hope they get it done.

Open your ports guys, seriously. After I did that I only see problems if I play a long set with a friends but that is once every 20 matches or so.
Simpson Aug 4 @ 10:09am 
I opend my ports already, but that helps nothing if the other one in ranked matches dont.
