You just need to add a set of Guncon 2's and a racing wheel...

I got into the PS2 recently. I have most of the North American releases but the only games I come back to play frequently are the light gun games. The PS2 is easily the best shooting game console and the official Namco guns are easily the best home gun controllers ever made.

Maybe you could put a PS3 in there too. A PS3 would make better use of that awesome fight stick panel...

It was all in Hebrew so I couldn't navigate through the site.

The video is of an Aimtrak / PC, not a Guncon 2 / PS2 one.

Ok I looked through every year and saw some very cool projects but nothing with a Guncon 2. If it's there, it's well hidden.

I saw your Aimtrak stuff but... I recommend the Guncon 2 with the PS2 library over an Aimtrak any day. They are 1000 times better.

I used my Aimtrak twice and then put it in a draw. The Guncon 2 got me back into light gun games. TC3 is magic!

the world of gun for home arcade, have a lot of issue. however aimtrak gun is the only gun so far close to accurate to the arcade, but i definitely agree there is a lot to improve :hissy:

The Aimtrak is nowhere near as accurate as real arcade light guns or the official Namco Guncon 2 guns.

It's not even close.
