Play Nexus, Nine Breaker, and Last Raven Online
--------------------------------------------------

Are you tired of beating up the same old mindless AI with your ACs? Have you ever wanted to play Nexus, Nine Breaker, or Last Raven with other people? Have you ever wanted to personally test your ACs against other people's ACs? Have you ever wanted to test your skill at piloting an AC against other good pilots? Do you want to become a better, more knowledgeable, and more robust AC player all-around?

You can do all of those things using XLink Kai. With XLink Kai you can play those Armored Core games online with anyone else in the world who has them, although lag will be an issue when playing over great distances. We already have numerous Kai players here at ACU, both veterans and rookies. Finding a match to fool around in, a practice partner to get better with, a teacher to learn how to play, or a knowledgeable veteran to help you fine tune your design is easy. Need to find someone to play? Try visiting ACU Chat or posting in this topic and asking if someone can play. Need help fine tuning a design? Try posting it here and getting some critique on it.

Are your nipples sore from a strong desire to play Armored Core against real people instead of AI? Are your panties in a bundle over the thought of totally and utterly dominating some weak fool of a pilot in an Armored Core match? Do you want to know what it feels like to have your spider sense tingling in the heat of player vs player battle more than your toes do after a wonderful orgasm? Have you ever wanted to do a 2v2 team match with a friend against other people?

What are you waiting for?! Don't be shy. Give it a shot! Stand up and shout, "Niji! I want to join you on XLink Kai right now!"

--------------------------------------------------
How XLink Kai Works
--------------------------------------------------

XLink Kai is a program that you run on your PC that allows you to play System-Link / LAN games for your Gamecube, XBox, XBox 360, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PSP. This software is referred to as a "tunnelling" application. There are various other single-console tunnelling applications available, but XLink remains the only one to support multiple major consoles.

XLink Kai lets you connect with other console users around the world, and play games online for free. XLink Kai tricks your console into thinking that the other users it is connecting to over the Internet are actually part of a Local Area Network (LAN). It essentially makes your console believe that the computer you are running XLink Kai on is your friend's console, rather than just a computer. It does the same for your friends computer and console, making his console think his computer is your console. This is the basis of "tunnelling" and of system-link gaming. With XLink Kai, you have the option to test your skills with anybody in the world as long as the game in question has a System-Link / LAN option for multiplayer.

--------------------------------------------------
Requirements for XLink Kai Use
--------------------------------------------------

You want to try XLink Kai out, but don't know if you'll be able to run it? Don't worry. I got you covered, friend. Using XLink Kai to play Armored Core games with us only requires a few things from you. You don't need an amazing computer or a super high speed interenet connection. As long as your computer isn't from before the year 2000 and your Internet isn't Dial-Up, you should be fine. It's also important to note that you can only play Nexus, Nine Breaker, Last Raven, Armored Core 4, and for Answer online. Only those AC games have support for LAN mode play. The most played game on XLink Kai from that list is Last Raven, by a long shot.

Make sure you have everything on this list before you try to install XLink Kai as you can not play on XLink Kai without it.
  • Armored Core: Nexus, Armored Core: Nine Breaker, or Armored Core: Last Raven
  • PlayStation 2 w/Network Adaptor, PlayStation 2 Slim, or Backwards Compatible PlayStation 3
  • Desktop or Laptop Computer
  • Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7
  • Ethernet Wires (DO NOT USE WIRELESS)
  • Network Router
  • Broadband Modem

4.3.5?!

The last "good" distro was 7.3.17 which is no longer supported and you have to get 7.4.24

Hey whatever works right. I'll try to get a lr save up and running and I'm sure LCC might try to join in as well eventually. Our last big gig were the Last Raven Fantasy Duels like last year, but havn't really thought about the game since then.

Yaka should probably up a fileshare link to his old version of Kai, since the current one is problematic.

Since when is there an OSX version?! Last time I tried to use Kai I had to fuck around with Wine to get it to run and I was still never able to connect to Owen.

Lol Zealous gave me OSX version since I first got on kai. That was like 8 years ago. It was the version of kai I used for the longest time-- until it stopped working for me.

Is kai really down? Their site mentions of DDOS attacks, and they're working to fix it.

HAMACHI

It works for a computer-based VPN at least.

Your best bet is converting kai to allow one of the host computers to be the server for the connection taking the place of the kai servers. Since either way you'll need to modify a program.

I would be getting my pops on this, but he's hella busy.

Once he gets settled into a comfortable workload-pace at his new job, he should have some time to give this a gander.

People in Europe have few scruples, the 20th Century is proof of that.
