    Guys, it doesn't matter which regional copy of Brawl you have, online play is a direct p2p connection once a game is up and running. The random matchmaking is really the only thing that will be affected by a distant server, but the lag is too great anyway...



    Tips for decreasing lag/bad connections:

    1) If you are far away from your Wi-fi router, get a USB adapter and hook up directly. Seriously. The lag caused by wireless drops can be immense.




    And for those who know what they're doing:

    2) Make sure you have all the ports forwarded for Wii online play. According to Nintendo, that's TCP 80, 443, 28910, 29900, 29901, 29920, and all UDP ports to the Wii.
    3) Do a speed/ping test on your connection to make sure it's stable enough. Maybe ask your opponent if you can ping them. Based on the speed of the game, I imagine Brawl needs something like

    I was on a 1.5 ADSL connection a while ago Toast, and sometimes it would seem like i was lag free, yet players on the other end would be having lag left right and centre.

    Sometimes, it was down to them possibly not having configured their ports right, and other times, just because 1.5 ADSL is slowly becoming slow as for online gaming. (That is, if you've only got an upload of 250ish, at the end of the day, the better your upload the better your chances)

    As Caesama said above, Ports and knowing how to get the most out of your modem/router is essential, especially for the wii. Doesn't matter if it seems sweet as to you, if its lagging one end it isn't always that persons fault its lagging, but in fact can be the opposite.

    I've seen a lot of peeps online complain about both the 360 and Wii and lag, but, all it takes is some googling and configuring some settings and massive changes can be had.

    Hey Adart, i just added you as well, but still awaiting on registration from your end.


    Just played 2 matches, both 3 player matches with Rhgy and Isuki (not sure who that is from the list lol), the first was a 2.0 hit psycho brawl, ick lol, came third, and the second a bit more sensible time based 1.2 match, came second.

    My end of things it seemed to be lag free throughout, but i'd like to hear from both players to see how it was on their end.

    Is your SSBB name Isuki, Adart? (didnt realize it was you man lol)


    What internet connection you on, and what modem do you have set up? (Just wanna get a good idea of what people are using and from whereabouts in Oz)

    One of you guys had a green connection to me, one had a yellow, can't remember which. Seemed to go pretty smooth, that is, when i wasn't trying to kill you for 2 mins before realizing it was a team game rofl.

    Lol, Isuki, izumi, wasn't that far off man lol:P


    Whereabouts in Aus you from dude, possibly i'm closer in region to rhyguy, not sure though. Either way, it ran smooth as, will definately be up for some more matches, preferably not with the hits set to 2.0 rofl.

    I haven't tried "With anyone" yet, but have watched a heap of spectate matches and my betting on the winner has been around the 90% mark, won lots of coins from it lol. Will give the "With anyone" a go today see if it works. I'm using a DVD5 of the game, on Wiikey 3.2E, 1.9s.



    On your friend list Muss, look to the right of the players name, and you'll see a coloured bar, if they are online i believe, Green=Best, Yellow=Good, Red=bad. (Not sure if there is an orange in there....lol.

    After a match there will be a coloured circle up in the corner of your friend's entry in your list. It will be green, orange or red (I think).
    They indicate the speed of the connection.

    I'm pretty sure there's a yellow one too. But I've gotten red dots on people with no lag, or yellow dots when people have massive lag, it's weird.

    I might be up for some later this arvo ronnie, if your online then.


    Does anyone know, if you can invite someone from your friend list to a team, and play random opponents with that player, or is that a no-go?

    Hey adart, thanks for the game, that was some pretty horrible lag we had going on there... [​IMG]

    I've got my Wii sitting 3 metres from the Wi-fi access point but I'm thinking of connecting it directly if it'll give me less ping. What's your setup?
