Ok, I did some play testing here and I definitely have some issues with the virtual console. There is some delay and it really effects game that rely on twitch. I always thought it was some sort of video processing delay in my tv, but I am thinking it's just a virtual console problem. I recently got an original NES and a copy of ninja gaiden. This game is all about timing and twitch. Hooking this up to a CRT television and playing it, man it play like a dream. I dominate this game and beat it 3 times. I have it on wii virtual console and man I struggle. So figuring its the tv I hooked the NES to the HDTV and to my surprise it plays fine and I dominate. On vc, I tried playing on the gamepad screen and the tv, didn't notice any difference. Bad on both. The graphics look much nicer on vc, but the controls man. I have had troubles with punchout and some with mario, most noticeably trying to bounce on those music note blocks on smb3. I thought I had played decent on on vc hooking it up to a CRT television in the past. I may try that again to test. Any real data on vc lag or anything? I think there is an easy way to measure lag between gamepad screen and tv, anyone know on that? Regardless, wow am I a believer now on playing games on the original hardware. It's so much better for these types of games. Vc looks pretty, but The control is more important.
