    Edit: Is there input lag or monitor lag with a CRT and a Wii for Melee?

    So I decided to buy a Melee setup :)

    I already have a Wii with the red yellow white plugs.

    Is there input lag or monitor lag or display lag with a CRT and a Wii for Melee?

    P.S. HDMI adaptor sounds expensive.

    And hey, I might wanna practice perfect shields one day.

    Another way to ask this is:

    what are the pros and cons for all the types of setups?

    e.g. HDMI converter, S-video, red, blue, green plugs, Wii vs Gamecube vs Dolphin, portable DVD player (lol).


    P.S. is this the right forum to ask this in? Couldn’t find a technical support forum.

    There is no lag using a wii, it is still 60 frames per second.There are no real pros nor cons compared to other setups like Dolphin and a GameCube. The only problem I know with Dolphin is that your setup has to be good enough to run at 60 FPS online, plus a good connection. Thus, it is a little costly compared to just modding your wii. For my wii, I use an AV cord (the one with the multiple colors, along with red, white and yellow) and there is no lag in my CRT. I checked using 20XX and looking at the number of frames going by per second and slowing it to be accurate.

    I am not sure about using an HDMI port, someone may have more knowledge on that.
