Hi everyone, I searched a lot on the web to see if there is any place people hang out in case they want to play shmups together, but I couldn't find anything like that.

Fightcade supports shmups like Progear and Giga wing, but their servers are pretty much empty and no one plays those games on Fightcade.

So how do I see people willing to play these games together on Fightcade?

You can always check the Meetup subforum. I hosted a few meets way back when that were a lot of fun. I was a little hesitant inviting strangers over to my apartment but everyone ended up being very chill and having a good time.

Except that one crazy guy who showed up in touhou cosplay :shock:

Fightcade has an official discord. I occasionally hang out on Fightcade2, it supports a lot of neat games.

I've tried to get emulated netplay games going with people on the shmup IRC channel before but people are so helpless they think it's impossible to play shooters seriously with a few frames of input delay. All of my two-player no-continue netplay clears have been with friends who aren't really 2D shooter fans. :cry:

Giga Wing is super forgiving even with input delay, it's a very good one to do netplay. I have a tough time with the left/right screen wobble in stuff like Dodonpachi more than the input delay honestly, but there's lots of neat shmups that don't do that can be played coop of course (anything Psikyo for instance).
