Now you can help test software that enables GameCube LAN titles to be played online.
The Warp Pipe Project has announced the alpha release of their online software for GameCube. The goal of the software is to enable online gameplay in GameCube titles which support the LAN feature. It currently only works with Kirby Air Ride, of course, but Warp Pipe hopes to have the software fully working by the time Mario Kart: Double Dash is released in North America.
If you are interested in helping to test this software, hit the link above. Note that you will need a PC running Linux, broadband Internet access, Kirby Air Ride, a broadband adapter for GameCube, and some other stuff. (The software will soon be ported to other operating systems, including Windows.)
