    I just have a quick question regarding this, would lightguns such as the NES zapper work through an adapter using emulated versions of lightgun games on a CRT? As far as I know the way these things work is that they rely on a flash from the television screen and the gun itself registers if a target was hit or not, meaning that as long as the adapter was working fine these controllers should work with no issues as well?

    If you are talking about emulation on the Wii the position of the Wii remote is where the zapper would "shoot" they do a pretty cool job of emulating light guns in that way.

    but yeah light guns on the NES require a CRT because LCD TV's do not switch fast enough (lag)

    I've heard light guns won't work even on CRT HDTV's, it's gotta be a plain old SD set.

    Wii Remote on Genplus GX and Snes9X GX is the best you can get in any platform.

    It depends on whether emulators for the Wii actually support light gun input with suitable controller adapters.
    If not this topic is over until that happens.
