HD Remix patch details and videos

Watch new netcode actually improve it.

Capcom has outlined changes being made in the upcoming Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix online Xbox Live beta patch.

There are 13 discrete tweaks, all of which you can read about on Capcom-Unity, and they're all the sort of thing an SFII die-hard would appreciate. Were you bothered by the number of juggle hits on Ken's fierce Shoryuken? Not as much as we were by the distance between him and his opponent after a Hurricane Kick.

Not content with merely outlining the improvements, which prevent crashes and reduce packet loss between duelling players, Capcom has also produced a pair of videos contrasting new and old netcode under identical network conditions.

We suggest heading over there to see it in action.

SSFII Turbo HD Remix is due out as a download title for Xbox 360 and PS3. The current online beta is Xbox Live-only for logistical reasons and you can access it by purchasing Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 on Xbox Live Arcade. It lets you set up online fights between Ryu and Ken.
