What sort of electronic jigeery pokery is needed to partake in this wondrous new gaming net fest? I have a PC and a web connection, will that do or do I need one of those new fangled consoles?

all you need is zsnes, the emulator from http://www.zsnes.com/

then you need a controller for your pc

then you need a copy of the super mario kart game file which can be provided by myself if you cannae find it

simples!

aye, once you have zsnes, you can either use your keyboard as a controller or a gamepad if you prefer.

i'll flick through the roms and clag a RAR file together to sendspace over thiis of various driving / fighting / other multiplayer style games (mario kart, bomberman, streetfighter 2, owt else with a decent versus / multiplayer mode on it)

incidentally, ive got around 760 roms if anyone wants anything theyve not got i'll sort something out  if ive got it :)

Ahhh the irony, I have a Mac not a PC.

But I have Mario Kart(DS) and Bomberman(PS3, DS)

Yeah I like Zsnes so I'd join in probably.

SNES Mario Kart's only for two.  Bomberman'd be good but we might as well just play one of the Flash clones, like Boomberman.  Or we could play Tetris Attack, that'd be good.  I'd destroy you all.

What's wrong with Mario Kart Wii?

Shitty motion controls. And the fact that I never win at it.

Oh, and the AI is way too biased towards the losers.  Fair point.

I'm pretty sure this is the game file for mario kart on the zsnes

http://www.sendspace.com/file/oiubif

it doesn't need to be unzipped, just stick it in your game folder as it is and load it up

If someone can recommend me a controller that's practically identical to the SNES controller, then I'll get one and beat you all.

i believe at one point they actually did a USB to snes pad converter - however, the one ime using at the moment is more like a playstation one

Most generic USB gamepads will be suitable, and should be configurable with ZSNES (if it's like any of the other SNES emulators).

ZSNES is for Intel Macs only, so no online gaming for me.

Anyone for a game of Urban Terror?

I've picked up one on Amazon for a fiver, so will be able to give you all a beating when it turns up and I've got used to the controls - there is no way I can use the keys.

You can use the keyboard, but we'll point and laugh at you.

I've tried that and I can't do it.  Jump turns are impossible.

Yes it's an FPS, it's free, and I can play it on my computer against others on Windows, Linux & Mac OS X. It is also fun. There's an online game browser within the game itself and lots of people playing it.

edit: Perhaps I should stop hijacking this thread and start another for UrT.

My chauffeur and I are up for some Mario Kart - if we can work out how to connect the zsnes to the internet.

ive just had a scan through the documents, and you have to get v1.41 to get it to connect to the net (they discontinued the netplay aspect after that. i was thinking about that snes9x thing as well, but i'll have to figure that one out from scratch.

For Mac users only:

1. Get BSNES here
2. Also get Emulator Enhancer here (this permits network play and add joystick/gamepad compatibility)
3. PM/Skype me, or post here, for a game.

Likewise (still for Mac only), for Gameboy/GBC games online go here
And GB Advance here

Both with Emulator Enhancer again.


Name your game and (for the SNES, GB & GBC at least) I will probably be able to find it.

edit: no network play for GB or GBA, sadly.

However, there is network play for the NES on the Mac (again, with Emulator Enhancer).
