Per the Readme:

+ Please let me do a little an important talk for the game field. It is
continuation of the story (Input Delay(Lag) problem) written last time.
+ The delay influences people who do not feel the delay, too. Even if you
cannot feel the delay, the difficulty of the game goes up certainly, and
the pleasure of the game certainly falls. As a result, there might be a
case that goes away from the game (Or, the played frequency decreases.
Without recognizing the cause for myself).
+ "Golf game" is the most remarkable to feel the delay. Please play
"Naxat Open"(the masterpiece golf game of "PC Engine") by full-screen(for
easy to watch). And, watch the power meter(small circle) of the screen
seriously when you swing. In the state, push the button of the pad when
the power meter(small circle) came right above person's head. When playing
with the display monitor where delay hardly exists, in "Ootake", the meter
(small circle) stops at once if the button is pushed.
But, in "MagicEngine(input-lag is large)", the meter(small circle) stops
in the place that shifted to the right a little.
If you do not push the button (do not shot) after this, this test can be
repeated. Please try repeatedly. And, you must feel the difference of
"Play Sense".
+ When you recognize the input-lag, if you push the button ahead of time, it
becomes a temporary solution. However, you will not feel good feelings
in the method. True interest of the action game is ruined.
Though it is not desirable, the timing of the golf game can become
accustomed. However, the timing of the baseball and tennis game becomes
unnatural late. Because up, down, left, and right movement is necessary.
Even the timing of other actions and shooting games is similar.
+ As a result, I strongly worry about the misunderstanding (difficult and
not interesting for the delay) of the game.

* Measures on user side PC environment
-> http://www.ouma.jp/ootake/delay-solution.html
+ Therefore, please read above-mentioned "Measures on user side PC
environment", and make a good PC environment if possible. And, in
"Ootake", enjoy playing "PC Engine(TG16)" games sincerely.
