    What? I don't really understand what you mean by play emulated roms online.

    You mean like a emulator that runs in your web browser?

    No online as in actually online, like me playing a friend who lives far away from me like on Street fighter 2, or playing Co-op on TMNT
    Thanks chuck, does this work on any emulator? if so, i will consider you to be my idol from now on.

    Yes it exists natively in some emulators.
    for example Zsnes has an UDP socket for multiplayer, works fine and I did use it a lot.
    Epsxe had a plugin (though it didn't work well) for online play from a second layer on the player input.
    Maybe visualboyAdvance special edition (I don't remember weel if it was online or just lan/local)

    I think other emulators might have this feature too.

    You could try zbattle.net for SNES if it's still up, used to play Secret of Mana on it with my friend and it ran pretty smoothly.

    Hamachi is really handy in situations where a game only does local gaming. Just set a network up with your friend, and the game will think he's sitting on the same network!

    Well..God-Weapon.com has a Classic Gaming Arena, which supports the following:

    SNES [Zsnes]
    NES [Virtual NES]
    KegaFusion [Sega Genesis/Mastersystem/Gamegear/32x/SegaCD]

    Unlike Kaillera, this is a Peer 2 Peer tool, so it connects you directly with your client. A lot less lag then Kaillera, basically.

    Directly Download: CGA

    And desynchs every other minute. Mupen64++ is a much better choice.

    The PCSX2 (PS2) emulator requires very little hassle to set up the online, and it's all in-built. I'm looking forward to playing Final Fantasy XI for the first time once it's playable on the emulator.
