ok this is bringing back some really old school stuff here, but I was curious if there was something like xlink kai for the gamecube. for those that don't know what I am talking about... there was a program that you could run on your computer that would match you up with halo players (and if I remember correctly, a few other games as well) via system link... so the xbox recognized it as system link players (thought you were on lan), but the program would match you up with players online. it was a way I got around buying xbox live back in the day (cheap college student at that time).

reason i am asking is I just got mario kart double dash gamecube for the wii... but it only allows multiplayer through lan unfortunately. any ideas if there is soemthing like this for gamecube/wii?
