Dolphin Emulator is one of the oldest emulators out there for both Gamecube and Wii. The emulator is very stable and has seen many improvements over the years. Dolphin also supports online play and now it has introduced a Netplay Server Browser to make that even easier.

Users with the latest build of the emulator can now access the Netplay Server Browser under the Tools menu. You can access it by clicking the “browse netplay sessions”. The emulator emphasizes that it wants all of your saves, cheats, settings to be synchronized as you play.

Users can now create full server lobbies and be able to search and find hosted netplay games within the emulator. You can create both public and private lobbies within the emulator, and these can be accessed by simply clicking on the specific lobby from the list.

Players can also create named lobbies, with passwords so they are matched with only their friends. The games are handled in a peer-to-peer manner so there is no additional added latency on the lobbies. All of this is something you’d expect from a competent server browser for various games that support online functionality. Most emulators don’t even have basic online play, let alone full lobby management infrastructure.
