GBAtemp Tournament Week - Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (LAN Play)

super-smash-bros-ultimate-switch-hero.jpg

It's time for users with a banned Nintendo Switch to get another bite at the apple, with our LAN play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament, with a $50 gift card up for grabs to the winner. Unfortunately, since accessing LAN play on SSBU requires a custom firmware, players with unmodified Switches can't enter this tournament. (Don't worry though, we'll be hosting a four-day tournament through Smash's regular online features from April 7th to April 10th!) The tournament will start at 2pm CDT (3pm EDT, 7pm GMT, 6am ACT, 9pm CET). If you're unsure what time that is in your timezone, please go to this website, type in "2pm CDT" and it will tell you what time that is in your area (make sure you're not connected to a VPN!). Since this tournament isn't catered specifically to competitive players, but we still want it to have that competitive feel, we'll be using a simplified version of the 2GG ruleset.
  • Stock: 3
  • Timer: 8 minutes
  • Items: Off
  • Hazard Toggle: Off
  • FS Meter: Off
  • Best two out of three matches
  • All characters are allowed
  • Stage Selection: Random
  • The following stages are in rotation: Final Destination, Battlefield, Kalos Pokémon League, Pokémon Stadium 2, Smashville
For users running Atmosphere, you'll need to go to this page, download the ldn_mitm_v1.3.3 zip folder, and move its contents to the appropriate folders on your Switch's SD card. You'll also need to download this file and put it in "SD:/modules/required."

For users running SX OS v2.5 and up, you need to go to the SX menu, head over to settings, and then make sure you've enabled online local wireless play. If you're unable to find a room, make sure your Switch wifi icon doesn't have an L on it--if it does, then that means the kip didn't load and you'll need to reboot and try again.

If you're having trouble, be sure to check this thread, with further details.

This is the server we'll be connecting to: kirbfeels.throwbackcountdown.com:11451

To break it down, what you'll need to do if you're a first-timer to LAN-play:
1. Grab the improved version of WinPcap, called Npcap.
2. Grab Switch LAN Play from GitHub. Here.
3. On your Switch, set your IP to 10.13.?.? where "?" represents any range between 10.13.0.1 and 10.13.255.254
4. Now, set your subnet to 255.255.0.0 and your gateway to 10.13.37.1
5. Next, you'll set your primary DNS as 163.172.141.219 and secondary as 207.246.121.77
6. You're almost there! Get the server address in the paragraph above and copy and paste it into the lanplay program on your computer. It should connect.
7. Now, connect to the internet on your Switch, and go to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
8. Go to the Wireless Play mode (it's one of the options on the dashboard on the right side of the screen).
9. Join the room!

Please make sure you have the latest version of the game (7.0.0).

If this is your first time using LAN play on the Nintendo Switch, we ask you to make sure you can connect to the server before the tournament starts so you have time to troubleshoot any potential issues. Give yourself about 20 minutes to work through the process and avoid any potential delays in getting the tournament started.

If you're interested in participating, please post in the thread below. Please also post the name of the account on your Switch if it differs from your GBAtemp name to help us keep track of everyone. Prior to the tournament beginning, we'll fill everyone's name into a bracket and post it so people know who they're facing off against. Since Ultimate's Wireless Play only allows users to connect to each other in private rooms, participants will have to host their own matches and arrange the rulesets themselves, so posting your Switch's account name will help make it easier for you to identify the proper room to enter if you're not hosting, or for you to know who to accept and who to reject from your room if you are. We encourage anybody who's hosting a match to pre-make a ruleset in accordance with the rules laid out above in order to expedite the process.

Good luck to all the entrants!

At least this time I don't think I'll mess the time up. .-.
I don't know if you're messing with me or not.

I've done everything but actually connect to the network I registered. I've never done this before and I've kept my switch offline since the "homebrewening". I've used 90DNS a few times for FTP before there was an MTP solution. The first DNS is the same as 90DNS, what's the second one? Will I be sending anything to Nintendo doing this? Just checking. If my internet's not crap for this I'll give it a go. It's probably crap though, and I don't own a lan adapter.

I’ll host a room about an hour before the tournament starts to let people ensure they can get in and understand how it works. I’ll make a post when I have it open and tag anyone who’s signed up.

Also, something I only discovered when testing this last night, is that the restriction on taunting doesn’t apply to wireless play the way it does to regular online play. So be sure to spam “Looking cool, Joker!” and “Sonic Speed!” at your opponent for maximum psychological warfare!

I'm messing with you, hence the "*banned*" instead of the more common "*shot*".
