Long term idea: WahCade Lobby Server?

Postby Zombie » Fri Feb 25, 2011 3:51 pm

I had a long term idea that WahCade would some day be able to function in a network transparent manner. The basic idea being that WahCade should be able to detect other WahCade instances (other cabinets) and connect to allow other computers running network aware emulators of similar build to communicate.

Either one. UDP/IP is UDP/IP. I suspect that it will read out like a table some how, like Warzone 2100, emulator, Rom, IP Address, PID, etc.
