Thanks once more, I appreciate the support and the FC4 too of course!
I also wanted to offer my thoughts on this a bit. At home we can all choose our own equipment, but when we get together and play this isnt always the case. For example I care about minimising input delay, so I play at home on HDCRT and a low lag stick. I am glad that I have the CRT option for online play though, as that can reduce overall delay by about one “bar” (orange bar feels like LCD yellow, yellow bar feels like LCD green bar, etc). But when I meet up for games, we’re on LCD so I make sure to turn up the input lag option in training mode so I’m used to the timing.
Now some (most?) people downplaying the effect of lag probably don’t play in tournaments or at a competitive level, so I can kind of understand that this all seems very silly to them. But to serious players it does matter. Daigo has even said in interviews that he has a CRT setup that he uses for online play, but he practises offline on a LCD (~22 ms delay over a CRT from my measurements).
Tldr; if you care about input lag, this info I’m compiling should prove useful. If you don’t, then you can ignore it and be just as happy on your current setup. Just understand that there are people out there who take these games seriously that do find this information helpful.
