XBAND Server



This is a reimplementation of the original XBAND server. I'll add some more info to this site soon, but for now, this should be enough to get connected.

Supported Platforms Setup Instructions
Choose your connection method: Supported Features: Gameplay Specifics:
Gameplay is only supported on SNES/SFC, and is very laggy (see video). Gameplay also requires that you use the VoIP or Landline connection methods, and you can only match with players who use the same connection method as you.
Gameplay on Genesis may work via a real landline, but this has not yet been tested. Gameplay on Genesis should be considered impossible at this point.

Battery Info
XBAND works much better if you have a battery in your modem. I've tried to make the server work as well as possible for modems without batteries, but every time you turn the console off you'll have to download your info again.
The battery type is either CR2430 or CR2032, usually CR2430. Here's how to identify the battery size if your modem is missing it.
