    When it comes to emulating the Nintendo GameCube or Wii, the Dolphin emulator reigns supreme. With features like upscaling, netplay, and so much more, it's a shining example of the sorts of peaks that emulation can reach. Netplay is especially one of those magical features, allowing online players from around the world to sync up and play local games as if they were together in the same room. Through the many years of development, Dolphin's netplay function has improved, though it has always required an extra bit of effort on the user's part to make sure everything worked right. For all those users that have struggled with tinkering around through multiple settings menus, the Dolphin team has introduced a brand new feature in their latest update, which makes it leagues easier to start up and join online netplay matches.

    Thanks to the new Netplay Server Browser, players can create private or public lobbies for specific games, removing the need to find your IP and copy and paste it to everyone involved. You can also sort by region, which helps for those that care about their ping, or by the specific title, and can see at a glance how many players are in a room before joining. If you're interested, all you need to do is update your Dolphin to any version that is 5.0-9908 or later, and select "browse netplay sessions" from the tools menu.

    Although I almost never use it since I have my Wii U for Wii games, I gotta say Dolphin has matured into one of the most amazing emulators ever.

    Nice but I never care about online. Good for people who wants to play online. That is not for me, actually.

    Move over Parsec, you guys are out of buisness!
    Also, Sexy Poker... This is not what Dolphin was built for.

    I gave it a shot and it was incredible. Played some Mario Party 7, Double Dash, Sonic Adventure 2, Mario Kart 64 and Mario Golf 64 no problem at all as long as the host was in NA. There's a feature of spreading out the lag to everyone which some hosts forget to turn off and then some guy from Brazil joins with a ping of 400 turning the game into a slideshow. Hopefully more and more people join so everyone has people to play with.

    To be fair, Parsec has a ton of other uses like, most relevantly, PCSX2. Definitely still has its uses for split screen games.

    No doubt this is incredibly handy though, I had to resort to Parsec to play Splinter Cell: Double Agent co-op with a friend (the GC version with Dolphin netplay was a mess, but Parsec with pcsx2 is what we settled on.)
