Do Most Emulators Support 240i?

    So here's a question. I'm playing all my 2D games through the homebrew channel on a CRT Tube Television, and I was wondering, what resolution do the games display at?

    For SNESX9 for example, do they display at 240i (wasn't that the original SNES's Resolution?)

    Yes, and you mean 240p.
    Some emulators as snesgx rever to this resolution as "original"
    Wiimednafen named this resolution "double strike"
    Standard these emu's are displaying at 480i/p, so you'll have to set it up to display the original low resolution from the settings.

    When using a rgb cable to connect to your crt using these settings, you will have an absolute razor sharp picture with perfect scanlines. ( arcade quality )
    It's the best possible way to play retro games on your Wii, as authentic possible.

    From what I know no major consoles used an interlaced output, it's only videos and cheap-o capture hardware that did interlaced stuff.
