Yea, must have been input lag. I'll let my friend know to change settings on his TV (make sure it is game mode) and maybe mess around with the 3 different mode settings on the NES Classic. I suppose I should have debugged it more but I was highly disappointment that night. Hopefully he can get it running where it actually feels right. I guess I'm good on any future retro systems. Got burned twice now. One with that shit atgames Genesis console and now NES Classic.
