The release of Street Fighter X Tekken has been marred by controversy: on disc DLC characters and non-functioning 2 vs 2 online play on the 360 version.
However, the game is marred by network connection problems as well. One of the most prominent issues affecting the online component of the game so far has been the intermittent sound effects during fights.
SFxTekken assistant producer Ayano has responded to these issues, explaining that the problems have arisen from the new netcode used on the title:
“The new netcode implemented in Street Fighter X Tekken allows for up to 4 players to have a smooth online experience, however depending on the connection stability between players, things like “spontaneous match rollback,” “voice effects cutting out,” and “sound effects cutting out” also are occurring.
“In order to completely fix all the sound issues, the smoothness of the online gameplay has to be traded off, so it is a very complicated and difficult balancing act.”
Ayano has assured players that the company is “looking at various ways to improve the sound issues.”
