Patched roms for using original lightguns on crt

Unread post by peke »

is it possible to patch roms to make original lightguns work on different cores? I have daemonbite adapters with nes/snes/genesis inputs.

I have an older IO board and buying snac will only work on nes zapper, besides with snac I will need the original peripherals with each core.

The short answer is no.

In my opinion GunCon 2 support still isn't in a great place and has gone largely unmaintained for quite some time now. It does work ok-ish in a few cores but I would consider it a novelty rather than a serious option. There is more information here.

GunCon 3 works pretty well but ideally the original peripherals are the way to go via SNAC. There's also Reflex Adapt but I don't have any experience with it and lightguns.
