    On Mame for Wii I was able to use the Wii Remote as a light gun but for Retroarch for Wii U I can't figure out how to do it if it is even possible. Does anyone know?

    I would love to do the same for NES (Duck Hunt) or the mouse in SNES (Mario Paint) but it won't happen I guess.

    This would be great! I have been wondering the same thing as I'm sick of ZERO light gun games for HDTVs :(

    I also wanted to know if you could, for example, use the balance board as analog stick input, and wii remote for the buttons to play 1080 or waverace for example on N64 emulation, via retro arch or dolphin (on pc/shield tv etc)

    Genplus has the Phazer option enabled, but nothing happens with the Wii remote.

    For what is worth Duck Hunt is available on VC with pointing support :)

    That's some news but to have such a feature in RetroArch would be fantastic nevertheless. ;)
