    Just FYI, the Wii doesn't use motion controls for light gun games. It uses the IR pointer.

    In addition to Beast Busters, SNK also had Mechanized Attack; and yes, both were pre neogeo, but neither were light gun games. (nor was Hyper Neogeo 64 Beast Busters Second Nightmare). Yes, all 3 of those arcade games used guns as the controls, but they were potentiometer based & driven. No light sensors whatsoever. (although the home translation/port of Mechanized Attack for the NES was modified to use the NES light gun.

    Also, in early 2000, when we first heard about Bang Bead, the initial article incorrectly reported the name of the game as Bang Head, and the rumors were that it was a gun game. But alas that was not the case. So yes, as Tarma said, none of this is neogeo related, and this thread needs to move.
    Some men see things as they are, and say why. I dream things that never were, and say why not.

    Well, this thread is about a light gun for Windows, which is made by Microsoft. Microsoft is the same company that created the mini marquee artwork for Ghostlop. So technically the thread is the most neo related thing posted in awhile.

    Is still crap nonetheless. It feels like moving an old wireless mouse from 20 years ago.

    the reason it costs that is independent manufacturing is extremely costly.

    I did a kickstarter. if i had a huge company behind me, i could have bought in proper bulk, would have been able to reduce costs across the board and prolly cut $75-$100 a pop off my stick. Small run manufacturing is a bitch. Half of the people say "fuck thats too much" and the other half just lol at you. Honestly-300k raising isnt so bad- picture $30-$60k just to get molds made for the gun. plus all the parts. plus the shells actual production. plus software dev. plus packaging (another deceptively expensive bitch). plus marketing- and this kid hasn't even been paid yet. I honestly think 300k is a low number for what he would need to bring a fully realized version of this to market.

    Move to Unrelated.


    This is a neat idea, but there's not enough trust based on that campaign page.

    Wii games are not 1 to 1. They kinda suck compared to a Light Gun. You do point and shoot, but it doesn't shoot where you point with a Wii sensor.

    So bit of a Update.

    Hes posted a update video with a explanation of how it works.

    My initial instincts appear to be correct in that its a optical based system.

    Using a camera to map the screen then further software to determine where the gun is pointing in relation to it.
    He also demonstrates a proof of concept idea of strafing either side of trees which could make for some real interesting next gen light gun games!

    Pretty cool stuff tbh.

    Rise from your grave dead thread!!

    So this project has come along way since last year and the guy has just launched a new KS which is nearly funded already in 24 hours.
    Anywho I actually had a chance to play with his prototype a few months ago and it works really well.

    Anyways if you are interested here is the KS for it.

    And a independent review from some YT goer.

    Cool Project. The design of the gun is pretty sexy. Nothing wrong with my CRTs or Justifier, Phaser, Zapper, Stunner, and Glock. I'll stick with those for now.

    Nothing wrong with mine either.

    But thats a 19 CRT I am pretty excited to be able to play newer games on my HDTV.

    May have to invest in a new PC to run them though lol
