Would you mind posting a video of multiplayer in action? I think there are many not in your position to easily set such a thing up at the moment; myself included! I am really curious what the latency plays out like in a real time game.
Good point! I can perhaps setup my dusty EOS 550D and tripod for an over the shoulder view. All I need is to convince a friend or sibling to have their ass kicked in Tank Fu!
... of course, I'll need to build my second Uzebox and hook it up to another television. WORTH IT!
Job well done!
I totally intend to pick up two Uzebox portables when they become available just for this reason alone.
I can update the Online Emulator's copy with the new version 3. Are there any new features aside from the networking?
EDIT: I just read your other post. You've updated quite a bit. Awesome, I'll have this updated online by tonight.
Yeah I'm pumped for the portable as well I think it is the best thing for the longevity of the Uzebox platform. Apart from the convenience of not having to have to setup a lot of bulky AV equipment and tangled wires, I can't help but compare this to the evolution of classic consoles. Start big, then shrink it down as modern tech allows. ( NES -> Game Boy)
It will be so much easier to demo it to other people as well. Just take it to work in your backpack or leave it out on the table for whoever to pick it up at a BBQ.
Also, just moving house, or re-ranging your living room / bedroom can easily mean your TV + console get's stowed away in a closet somewhere never to be setup again.

Below is a short video demo of the LAN mode in action. Not the greatest game play demo as I'm playing against myself and swopping out controllers in my hands constantly, but it should serve nicely to demonstrate the latency you can expect.
Wow, nice to see this game getting new features! This is a really good game, one of the bests realized for the Uzebox in my opinion (I will always have some preference towards original designs, so Lee, those ports are beautiful, but come up with something original at last! ), especially for multiplayer, along with Bugz, but that's a really different experience.
Yeah, Tank Fu is awesome! It reminds me a bit of Atari 2600 Combat... but with color! I played the heck out of that game so Tank Fu has it's place for me right next to Combat. First multi-player game over wifi too!
