    So for a year now ive been trying to find out why SNES9x and FNES have lag - press a button and the action happens half a second later - making it impossible to enjoy nearly any game.

    But ive been reading on here that these two emulators are known to lag? Are there any emulators for SNES or NES that dont lag?

    Im new here so i apologize if this is all old news.......i went back a few pages and couldnt find anything on this topic.

    THanks so much!

    Doesn't happen on my end, are you using a Gamecube controller, Classic controller, etc? If you're using a third party controller, that might be why. As far as there being other Snes/Nes emulators for the Wii, there aren't any others. Tantric fixed any lag-related issues, but I could be wrong. Hopefully he'll see this thread and provide better info than I did.

    If you are not happy with the homebrew side of things, there is always the Virtual Console

    Just letting you know I've tried GBA, SNES, NES, and Genesis with a Classic Controller Pro and the Wiimote... AND a third part Wiimote (by Memorex) and they all work perfectly.
    I'm thinking it has something to do with your mod on the Wii.

    I'd try to resync the controller a few times.

    Emulators I use are VBAGX, SNESGX, um... forgot the rest at the moment ha. Whatever the GX ones are.

    Both emulators were VERY recently updated to remove that lag. Please make sure you're using the latest versions.

    I have never had any lag problem with either of those emulators they both work perfectly for them most part its the GBA emulator I'm having problems with but I found out that apparently the Wii isn't powerful enough to handle the GBA at full speed (bull shit is what I have to say to that, that has to be a joke!)

    It could be your TV. Some HDTVs have some lag because they're processing the upscale of the Wii.
