BlazBlue and BlazBlue: Continuum Shift are almost lag free even when Noel is Chain Revolver-ing an opponent halfway around the world. The netcode, in Arc System Works’ words, is virtually transparent to the user and here’s why.
A technical document posted on their English site highlights two points.
- When network lag is detected, Arc System Works’ technology complements this delay and uses it to perform CPU and GPU intensive tasks such as rendering.
- When a delay is detected, there is code that examines the condition which existed before the delay and the current condition. Arc System Works’ proprietary technology creates a new condition based on the change.
Thanks for the tip Matty!
