Title: Mario Party 1-3 Netplay/Kaillera
Post by: NintendoFan on February 03, 2015, 07:30:49 PM
So, you want to play the classic Nintendo 64 Mario Parties online? Well, you can if you follow this simple guide!

Prerequisites:
-A Mario Party 1/2/3 rom (For legal reasons, I won't link the roms here. Use google. Make sure that every player has the same rom, or else the game could desync.)
-Project64. Specifically, this preset version (https://www.dropbox.com/s/8f2uons1c3r2fmu/Project64%202.1.zip).
-The ability to port forward, or a Hamachi setup.

When you have the roms and the preset emulator, make a new folder and place them in that folder. Open Project64, go to "File > Choose ROM directory..." and then choose the directory where you put your Mario Party roms. When you've set the directory correctly, the roms should appear in a list inside the emulator.

Head to "Options > Settings" next and uncheck "Pause emulation when window is not active?". Click Apply. While you're still in settings, go to plugins and change Input to "AQZ netplay." Click Apply again, and then click OK.

Head to "Options > Configure Controller Plugin" and in the dropdown menu, select N-Rage's plugin. Click "Configure" and set the controls for your keyboard/controller. Save the configuration.

In the list of roms, open the game that you want to play online. A small window with a list of commands should pop up. Here's where you need to port forward or use your Hamachi setup. In the command window, type "/server (port)" where (port) is any number you want. Use "/name" to change your username to whatever you want. Forward the port that you selected, or if you're using Hamachi, give them your ipv4 address along with the port. The other players need to connect to the server in the command window using "/connect (ip) (port)".

If you did everything correctly, the players should be able to join the server. When all the players are inside the server, start the game using "/start".

When the game starts, it might seem slow, so you need to increase the lag delay between the players. Doing this will make the game run smoother, but it will make input lag higher, ie when you press a button the game will take longer to respond to said button. If you have it on a low number, ie 9, you shouldn't need to worry about it too much. 15 is probably the highest you should go for anything playable. If it's still bad, then check to see if every player has good enough internet using a speed test website.

If you need help, just ask in this thread. If you're experiencing desyncs, I'd advise you to check your internet connection, if all players have the same roms, and if the game is running smoothly enough.

What server do you guys usually play on, I'd love to catch a game sometime, but I don't know if I'll always know ahead of time when I'm available to play. Maybe PM me and we can add on facebook or something

I'd also be up for this if you're still looking for more people.

I've just downloaded the software and got it working, getting good frame rates aswell.

I enjoy MP3, it's my favourite Mario Party of all time and it's competitive as hell, just can never get 4 players together to play it.

I've only just joined this forum in the last couple of days, been a fan of the game for years though.

OK, I have been not so active on the forum lately, how about the four of us(me, brady, Zand and Flopsy) get together for a game on 7PM EST? I don't have the server IP now but I will message it to you guys then.

I can do 7pm EST on somedays but not all of them, I'm over in the UK but I work night shifts so I can't do particular days.

Sundays, mondays and tuesdays are best for me, I tend to work the same nights every week.

Thanks for your quick reply

Me and a friend have been playing mario party on P64@aqz netplay the last few days, but would be happy to play with 2 real players instead of computer players.

I created a hamachi channel, as i figured it would be easier to find games with some direct contact instead of forum posts.
Anyone is welcome to join for some games, be it mario party 1, 2, or 3.
Hamachi info
Channel name: MarioPartyCh1
Password: mario123

But you can contact me in here as well, will probably just take a bit longer to get back to you :P

Hi,  I used to play Mario party as an addict, me and my brother are big fans of this game. I never played online this game but I used hamachi for other games. Feel free to contact me if you fancy a game. Best times for me are 8 to 11pm UK time or weekends nearly at any time.

I sometimes go on the channel, but the other 3 are always offline...

Also, I think instead of using the PJ64 method we should use the Mupen64++ method if we ever get together for a game.

I honestly doubt that there will be no lag, but Mario Party 3 did play fine when I hosted from the Pacific with people from Canada, France, and Eastern US playing with me and there was little lag and no desyncs using the Mupen64++ method.

I know, but you didn't even show up on the time I said I was going to be on. You showed up an hour and a half before.

If you're still interested, I can play a game on 8PM est tomorrow. If not then try 11am est-12pm est Saturday.

Okay, first off, your memory must be VERY fuzzy. Because the only person who was EXTREMELY late, was you. You said to log in at 12 PM EST and I did. :P Proof from shoutbox:

(2015.04.25 - 12:03:20) SpiderStaryu: Nintendofan I'm ready for Mario Party 3 in the server now

Then here you come, 2 hours later:

(2015.04.25 - 13:59:39) ChatBot: NintendoFan logs into the Chat.
(2015.04.25 - 14:00:06) NintendoFan: SpiderStaryu, still here?
______________________________________

Now that that's corrected, I can play Friday at 8 PM est and on Saturday at 11 AM est, I just hope you'll show up. :P

Hm. Just to avoid any timezone errors, instead of 8pm est I'll be on 3pm Pacific time. You can check what time it is in my area of the Pacific here: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/usa/honolulu (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/usa/honolulu)

Okay, so 3pm your time (apparently Honolulu), should be in 3 and a half hours. So that is 9 pm my time. I should be able to make that.

First of all, this isn't even the right place for this topic. Second of all, I can play Mario Party, but only if it's 1 or 2.

There are servers floating around, just find them with the master servers list in Mupen. Did you want to play a game?

Also, you think this is old? Try looking at the original thread (http://www.mariopartylegacy.com/forum/index.php?topic=14188.0)

Yeah XD I wanted to try Mario Party 2 or 3, but I hate when the graphic messed up :(

Post by: NintendoFan on November 09, 2015, 06:18:42 PM
I could probably play a game on Wednesday, since I don't have school that day.

Also, using the second method(Project 64 1.7 AQZ Netplay plugin), the graphics don't flicker or anything like that. I'd use that method, if I could get all of my friends to get the emulator. But honestly, you get used to the flickering in Mupen after a while, especially after over a year.

At which time can find the most Mario Party players?
Which Emulator, which emulator settings are best for Mario Party? Especially for Mario Party 3?

Thanks in advance

So, I've rewritten the guide in the OP to be less cluttered and it's probably better overall. I'm open to any constructive criticism, so if you have an idea to improve the guide, just let me know.

The old guide has been kept in a spoiler, for archival purposes, if you're wondering about that.
