Uhh... this game is optimized for HD, so there is no lag. I went and checked after reading this, and no lag as far as I can see. If anything, your reflexes aren't fast enough on the HD version vs. non HD. The animations run better than ever. It's basically instantaneous, because of the HD.

BTW, this doesn't count as a Wii game, so I have no clue why you brought up such an old thread.

Ummm, guys? This is a WAY old topic (Back in November) and I've long since all but eliminated lag on my Wii U via Wii games, thanks to Game Mode, which as actually helped all of my games. The refresh rate is amazing and it's like I'm playing on an SDTV again. Soooo.... yeah. ^^;

But if you'd like to continue, please, go ahead. ^^

Anybody there yet?

People, I need a little help. Sorry for my English! I'm from Brazil!

I bought a wiiU and a 42" LCD Full HD TV. One is conected to the other via HDMI cable, as usual.

When I try to play Super Mario Bross.Wii (obviously made for wii, not WiiU), I feel a very annoying lag. I've already turnned everything that I could off on my TV in order to try to let the image processing faster.

So, what you think? Is it because of my TV, the mario game, the cable?

Will I feel this lag in any Wii game that I try to play on my WiiU?

Try out more than one game. If there's delay with all of the games, it's definitely the TV. Some HDTVs have noticeable delay and there isn't much you can do about it. I have a 65'' TV (it's DLP), and there is a VERY small amount of delay, hardly noticeable. I just got lucky. But my 42'' TV has at least 100 ms of delay and it's very annoying. If it's the TV, the only thing you can do really is deal with it or get a new TV if that's an option.

Also try turning on game mode when the TV turns on, even if it's set as default. That helps too.

Don't forget, other people wandering by can benefit from threads as well, not just the OP.

Wikipedia: "Display lag is a phenomenon associated with some types of liquid crystal displays (LCDs), and nearly all types of high-definition televisions (HDTVs)... For older analog cathode ray tube (CRT) technology, display lag is extremely low, due to the nature of the technology, which does not have the ability to store image data before display."

If you think your TV's "game mode" function is eliminating lag for you, good for you. But even though 99.8% of games you play are playable, you still can't beat the original Punch-Out, and it's because you can't ever eliminate lag. Especially not on an HDTV.

Who would honestly think that playing an HD console would eliminate input lag. Blame your TV bro, not the console.
Get an HDTV with low input lag, The Vizio P(4k) Full array local dimming LED that's hitting this month does about 17ms/1 frame.. when using HDMI 5 with Game Low Latency turned on. ;)

It's a drag though playing VC games on any HDTV, since there is already about 1 frame/16ms of lag present within the Roms/emulations, then you add on the present lag from your HDTV and you're dipping into 32ms(if you're lucky, which still sucks a little imo), tot he 40's, and 50's+

It's why i only do the VC on a CRT tube tv.

Some HDTV's are even worse at 480p.

Basically this. Since the Wii U outputs Wii mode at 1080p, it actually does decrease lag as opposed to using a Wii with component cables. Wii just wasn't designed to hook up to HDTVs(large ones in particular) and work as well as a console designed specifically for HD.

I used to play Wii on a 26" 720p HDTV, and it worked perfectly, because of the small screen size, but Wii was atrocious on my family TV which was 47" 1080p. Wii U gets rid of those issues, and any lag after that IS actually your TV. I tested this when the Wii U first came out, and is one of the reasons why I transferred my Wii games to Wii U on day one, besides having all my VC and Wii Ware games in the same place, which is necessary to upgrade whatever VC games.
