Whoa, I just looked up that Kaillera thing...a program that lets you play emulators online? Sounds cool to me! Might have to check that out if it works decently.

I've been playing with kaillera nearly since it's inception by a relatively well known programmer working for NullSoft. It's pretty much a dead project nowadays and the author doesn't want to release the code to it. There has been no new update to the main kaillera clients/servers for about 2 years now. Although updates to the emulators that support it have been continuing at regular intervals.

Since that time though, a lot of different emulators have incorporated it into their network play. Here is an unfinished list of emulators with kaillera support:

Gens - Genesis emulator
Snes9xk - An unofficial build of the infamous SNES emulator
Mame - The first emulator to have kiallera support. It's an arcade system emulator with about 2000+ games emulated.
PSx emulators - through the use of gamepad plugins.

There are also numerous other emulators that also use kaillera nowadays. From NES to even N64 emulators. The interface is simple and the response of button presses of the server/client works well if you/your opponent have good pings(< 100). Nothing is better than being able to play a game of SFA3 against a friend in NY from my own house in California.

I must warn you though, most online kaillera players play arcade fighting games. Mostly Marvel Vs Capcom 1 and the KOF series. But co-op games like the old 2d sidescrollers are always fun with online buddies. Contra, Final Fight, Alien Vs Predator, D&D Tower of Doom, ect, ect...

Of course you mean Action games! Games like Diablo 2, Evercrack, WOW and the like draw hundreds of thousands constantly

220,064 the max number playing hl and hl2 games that is very impressive!

For those not fans of CS:S, it's actually the 2nd most played action game, behind CS on the PC.

Quote from the book Half-Life 2:Raising the Bar (actually paraphrased since I don't have it at work...)

Counter-Strike generates more internet traffic than the country of Italy.
