    Anyone here seen Time Crisis 3 working with CCD gun?

    I've seen multiple posts here saying that Time Crisis 3 also works with a CCD camera gun set-up (in addition to regular light guns). Has anyone actually seen this working?

    Found cheaper drop-in replacements for Ghost Squad and Time Crisis recoil solenoids

    As everyone who uses arcade recoil guns knows, when it comes to replacing broken solenoids, Sega and Namco like to bend you over and fist you with a boxing glove. So, in the interest of keeping our botty holes the correct size, I wanted to share info on some drop-in replacements. First, Time...

    Viability of transplanting guncon 3 into Time Crisis 4 Arcade recoil gun?

Now I would like to do the same with my Guncon 3 to build a Time Crisis 4 and Razing Storm cab using a PS3. The TC4 arcade gun shells and solenoids seem to...

    Best way to handle 6 button games with Supergun?

    Just wondering how you guys handle 6 button game wiring with a Supergun? I.e. Are you rewiring buttons 4, 5 and 6 every time you switch PCBs to one that uses a different kick harness? Or is there a way to wire a 6 button controller to work with all PCBs when played on a Supergun?

    I recently dug out my old supergun from storage and I have an interest in trying a Naomi set-up. Can I use my regular supergun arcade joysticks with a Naomi board? If not, can they (joysticks) be wired to the Naomi directly? I read somewhere that Dreamcast controllers work with a Naomi. Is...

    Is there a benefit with flash carts over a regular multi-game cart?

    Please can someone explain the benefits of flash carts like the Darksoft MVS multi or the CPS-2 multi over a regular multi-game cart? I'm not criticizing the approach. I think it is fantastic that Darksoft (and others) are creating ways for us to experience rare games on original hardware. I...
