Basic Netplay Setting
Some Dolphin settings that can help you to have a smooth netplay experience in SRTE:
Set backend to Direct3D 11 (This is dependent on what plays nice with your graphics, so experiment with these. Direct3D 11 is normally less intensive, but if you use Linux, Mac, or a mobile device, you won't have access to it)
Select your graphics card/built-in graphics, they'll say Intel, AMD, or NVIDIA
Check "Show FPS"
Check "Show NetPlay Ping"
Set to "Asynchronous (Skip Drawing)"
Check "Compile Shaders Before Starting"
The usability of these settings are more dependent on your hardware. If you have a decent GPU, you can make things look nice. If you have an integrated graphics card, you won't be able to improve much. No matter what, it's important to have a smooth 60fps experience, so scale these settings in mind.
---Embedded Frame Buffer (EFB)---
Check Skip EFB Access to CPU
Check Ignore Format Changes
Check Store EFB Copies to Texture Only
---External Frame Buffer (XFB)---
Check Store XFB Copies To Texture Only
Check Skip Presenting Duplicate Frames
Check Fast Depth Calculation-Check Disable Bounding Box
And that's it! Remember that for SRTE, performance is critical.

Ready to start playing online?
You or your friend may have slow internet which we usually determine via ping. Click here and click "Run Test" to find out how fast or slow your internet is. The person with lower ping and stronger internet should be the one to host. The lower the ping, the better. Ping over 30 is ok-ish, but 50+ is bad.
Buffer (sacrificing input speed for better connection) should be anywhere from 3 (both players have fantastic internet) to 15 (both players have decent connection). Buffer over 15 isn't very good, and anything over 20 is unplayable.
NEVER ENABLE HOST INPUT AUTHORITY EVER. Makes the host inputs work better than the connectors, creating an unfair experience. Also, if you are in different countries, it will most likely lag unless you both have strong internet.
Note: This doesn't apply to every situation, however. There are some instances where ping reaches up to 100-200 ms. As long as the game runs at 60fps with little to no stutter, under 15 pad buffer, you are qualified to enter tournaments. Parsec can also be used during friendlies, however, it isn't typically used in a tournament setting. Keep that in mind.
