    Kind of a random question, is it feasibly possible to do netplay with the emulators for the homebrew?

    The Wii64 team has plans to include netplay in their emulator but it's not high-priority.

    it's very possible to add network support in any emulators , not just n64 (why did you get this idea ?)...
    it's "only" a matter of getting player 2 (3,4,...) controller inputs from the network instead of reading the connected controller as usual.
    Easier to say it though because, not only the network server/client stuff, it would also need a very well designed implementation in order to reduce latency as much as possible.

    Having everyone on the same exact system (Wii) could make this better/easier than the pc implementations of netplay.

    why ?
    the problem with PC networking is not the internal hardware but the difference between qualities of the internet connection for each user... same will be for Wii users
