...if you have a PC, a broadband line, and a copy of some XBOX PC software...let me explain....

Some of you may allready know this, but it is possible to Play Mario Kart GC online. You see, before the days of XBOX Live people wanted a way to play Halo on the net. A company named Gamespy who you may have heard of, released a program named the 'XBOX Portal'. It emulated 'XBOX System Link' - A.K.A. Lan play. You could then choose a lan game, with an ethanet cable from your box to your PC, and choose a game online to play through the Gamespy XBOX Portal software.

Worked a treat! Played Halo online myself, months before I got XBOX Live (and Halo 1 unlike Halo 2 isnt even meant to be played online full stop)

Now, if the GC Mario Kart can play LAN games via a broadband adapter, why won't it work with the exact same peice of software? Awnser is it will. So when Mario Kart pops through my door, perhaps I will see you online.

If you have broadband, a cube, a PC, and a GC broadband adapter as well as the obvious Mario Kart game that is...

Don't tuant me if you allready knew this - just spraeding the word for those who don't

because if you had 16 players going through one GameCube and TV the game would be jerky as hell and each character's screen about the size of a matchbox. füol.
