Emulator Issues #10547
Feature Request - Show Hosted Netplay Games
Could it be possible, to show all hosted netplay games, which are currently waiting for players? I'm missing the possibility, to play against people over the world as in other games, or as in WFC. Do you know Game Ranger? Maybe it could show open games in Dolphin as in other games and can start a game between players.

The Current Netplay infrastructure doesn't work like that - everything is peer to peer and Dolphin isn't aware of anything.
Outside of a complete rewrite... there's nothing that can be done about this - there's no centralized server. The traversal server only helps people host without port forwarding and doesn't actually host games like a centralized server.
So, in terms of the current solution being modified to do that... it'll never happen. In terms of a new netplay interface designed with different goals in mind, that's possible but, we'll see if it ever happens. Considering no one has been working on netplay for the most part recently, I wouldn't hold my breath.

I think you misundestood me. There shouldn't be a server which is hosting games. The users can still host games and play among each other. As you give a friend a traversal hostcode, there could be a server which knows all hostcodes and the status of that hostcode. This list can then a user use, to find open games in dolphin.The game would still take place between the players not over a server. The host would only tell the server, if the game was started or not. Game Ranger does the same thing. It doesn't handle the game playing between players. It only shows, which games are hosted and which are currently playing. The game itself take place between the players.
