You should be able to pick up a nice Sony CRT for less than €50, even free

Got Point Blank 1 &2 yesterday from London.
Second g con gun delivered yesterday.

Slim ps2 sourced from his uncle
Sony Trinitron sourced FOC from adverts

All done now. Just to set it up when I collect the ps2 at the weekend.


Have to try and hide this massive TV from herself now

It'll run on the PS2 due to the backwards compatibility. Fairly sure you would need the original Gcon45 rather than the PS2 version though.

There's actually a great Namco shooter compilation for the PS2 called The Gunvari collection which has the Point Blank games, along with Time Crisis. (that works with the Gcon2)

Disaster

None of the g guns come with the yellow video splitter lead.

Attic searched I cleared out all my old splitter boxes.

I'm snookered.

If I found an old composite splitter box I'd parallel out three of the yellows.

I can't even find any if my single splitter one peice units.

Chance of Two player Point Blank for Christmas is massively diminished.

Got sorted with the AV splitting

Got an old poundshop parallel scart, a composite scart breakout for one gun and inline ps2 breakout for the other

Anyway poxy TV is not working.

Waste of time.

I give up I can't even lift the big mofo to try to fix it.

This project is dead. Young lad will have to be happy with Lego.


Happy Christmas everyone.

Looks like a proper solution is in the works, finally!



Kickstarter page here, it's fully backed already!

Really interested to see how this develops - the response time will make or break it.

Just backed it!
Couldn't quite spend that much on the recoil version so opted for the normal one. Postage is £20 on top to any country.

Is it using the white border around the screen for tracking? Is that a worry for screen burn? Great to finally see something to improve on the aimtrac guns.

Maybe on plasma TVs, not much of a worry for LCDs I think though.
