    Hi. I recently downloaded two NES emulators (FCEUMM & NEStopia by the libretro team) and I was wondering if there is any way to make one of these be able to emulate the NES Zapper to fully be able to play Duck Hunt. tyty

    Perhaps with the touch screen. That'd be awesome.
    Nice sig by the way, totally expresses the noobs here in the 3DS section :D

    Thank you.

    OT: I wonder if there is a romhack of the game that basically has a cursor controlled with the d pad. That would be cool.

    Couldn't find anything with google. It doesn't seem that hard, I wonder why it hasn't been done.

    I know, right? It would probably be one of the most useful ROM hacks of all time.

    It is actually hard. You'd need to make a disassembly of the game, create graphics for the cursor, make a routine that stores the cursor position and modifies it according to the d-pad, locate the routines that manage the zapper and edit them to use the cursor position. Quite hard to make for something quite not rewarding.
