Re: [Networking] Online Gaming on HughesNet

- Mario Kart 7 (Nintendo 3DS) (Fully Playable*) -- As far as I can tell, the online aspects of the game work perfectly under Hughesnet! I've both won and lost races playing against random opponents and it wasn't due to lag by any means. Your opponent appears live on your screen and you appear live on theirs, from what I can tell, despite the 1200~ms latency and 600~ms jitter. This is especially exciting for me because several friends of mine have the ame now.

* However, there are occasional connection errors. Whether this is due to Hughesnet or due to the 3DS network itself, I honestly can't say. But when it works (which is more often than not), it works perfectly!
ISP: HughesNet Satellite Internet
Modem Model: HN9000
Service Plan: Grandfathered ProPlus -- 425 MB + 100 MB/day, 1050 MB total, 1.6 Mbps DL; 250 Kbps UL)


for whatever reason, mario kart always worked well on hughesnet for me on the wii and ds. plus it doesn't even eat up that much bandwidth
