I would like to play with 8-16 of my friends on Mario Kart Double Dash. I am currently trying to calculate the best way to accomplish this. I currently have 2 GameCubes and 6 original controllers, I also have two PC controllers and several computers. So far there seems to be three choices:
- Buy 2 more GameCubes, 10 more controllers, and 2-4 LAN adapters at $40 each.
- Buy several Wiis which have cheaper LAN adapters ($20?) and controllers.
- Buy lots of PC controllers and use some kind of emulator and the existing towers I already have (not sure if this is even an option).
Using the GameCubes I think I would have the most stable environment since that is the initial platform. However, using PC's I could use the same setup for multiple games which would justify the cost more.
Has anyone ever done this? Are their any DIY guides to handle some parts of the setup?
