    Is there a gba emu for wii with which you can "link" and by doing that play multiplayer?
    Or is a multiplayer gba emu for wii in the making?
    If there isn't someone should try to make a multiplayer gba emu for wii or modify an existing one, like vbagx or something... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The wii isn't powerful enough to emulate 2 GBAs on a single system which is what would be needed for a "local" solution. Wireless play introduces even more problems as the GBA link cable was a physical cable that required very low transfer times from one system to another and therefor would be unlikely to work correctly online.


    Is it possible to accomplish this? Yes, but it would require a very hacky workaround (disable GBA cable timeout for online) and it would still contain the potential to screw up games and generally wouldn't work very well.

    There are already PC GBA emulators that support multiplayer on multiple machines. While VBALink was designed to play over a local network, it will still work remotely if you use Hamachi. Yes, speed is certainly reduced, but stability is not lost.
