Post Guncon Conversion Patch!
This is pretty cool.
I just stumbled across this patch that gives the PSX version of Policenauts Guncon support for the shooting segments!

For those of you who do not know what the Guncon is, then please read this,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GunCon

The creator of the patch is shalma, the same guy who brought us the Policenauts multi-disk merge patch. The main thread for the project can be found here at ngemu.com
http://forums.ngemu.com/showthread.php?t=143143

I have the Policenauts Guncon conversion patch as an attachment, here is the patches readme.

Converts shooting segments to use a Guncon (port2)
- Special thanks to Paubi for much testing and feedback!



Instructions:
0. Rip game cd to bin/cue or ccd/img format
1. Use official English translation patch
2. Run bin/ppf-o-matic3
3. Drag-drop bin or img file
4. Drag-drop bin/ppf file
5. Hit patch



Uninstall:
1. Run bin/ppf-o-matic3
2. Click 'undo patch'
3. Drag-drop bin or img file
4. Drag-drop bin/ppf file

I don't own a Guncon, so I can't vouch for this patch personally; though I'd be interested to hear if it works for anyone :)

That's really interesting =)

I do have a couple of guncons, but I believe they are all PS2 versions... Will need to check if I can find one in my box of "plastic accessories for consoles" and then check on a CRT =)

how did you find this?

I was googling around for a mouse plugin for PCSX-Reloaded and I stumbled across this. I'm a little confused on whether or not this was intended to work only with emulators or not. It's a little hard to tell just by reading the thread. I would imagine it would work on real hardware, but who knows.
I know the same guy has done other Guncon conversion patches for Crypt Killer, Die Hard Trilogy, Lethal Enforcers, ect.

Interested to see what your tests show!
