Xbox lightguns... do any of them work?

Postby madbuzzin » Sun Mar 18, 2018 3:31 pm

I purchased these two guns (attached) and the don’t work at all... I have tried them both with silent scope collection game disc on an un-modded Xbox.. they are unplayable. The crosshair just flickers all over the damn screen.. yes I am using a crt I’m not retarded. I have an Emerson vt2522d which I can’t find any info on in google. Why does every other console’s light gun work on my tv but the Two I have for my Xbox don’t? Does anyone know what would cause this? How to fix this? Any explanation at all????

Ps1, ps2, Saturn, genesis lightguns work on my tv perfectly but Xbox for some reason doesn’t

I have the Beretta gun in pic 2 and it works fine with my XBox, i've played house of the dead with it so not sure why yours would have issues. I'm also on CRT TV, its a larger one and the only issues i have with it with lightgun games are that it can lose accuracy around the very edge of the screen.

The crosshair doesn’t stay still... idk what the hell is going on.. I wanna get this figured out so I can play some mame lightgun games on my modded Xbox.. I have another tv I can try it with but it’s a huge crt and may take a min to get it inside. So sounds like it’s my tv?

I have the VGA sniper rifle and the MadCatz gun for XBOX and they both work fine, you have to adjust the screen brightness and/or the room lighting a bit to get the best out of it plus make sure your CRT TV is not 100Hz as these don't work well with light guns of any kind, but that might not effect you in the states, I don't know.

I'd also try another gun if you can locate one as it might just not be that good with the TV, I have a couple for PS1/2 that are just total crap.

Is this just an Xbox thing? Why can I play point blank on my ps2 with no lighting in the room but the Xbox (I would argue is a more powerful system) requires all these particular settings and exact lighting environments in order to even function properly?

No it's not, an XBOX shouldn't be any different than a PS1 or PS2 with a light gun, try reducing the light in the room, curtains & blinds closed and increase the brightness a bit on the TV, if I remember right this is what you do to get the best from the gun and re-calibrate it in the game too.

I don't think I can suggest anything else.

The gun is pretty standard as far as I know, it works on all the XBOX gun games as do the others, I have 2 of the rifles boxed as they were once commonly found here in the UK and sold new at Argos, a high street catalogue company that bought out any competition.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_gun_games#Xbox

The rifles box states "Compatible with all light gun games for Xbox including Silent Scope Complete" and the game case just has "Light Gun" ticked on the back cover so I don't think either are exclusive. That doodle on the scope is just 2 ends of clear plastic to look through, nothing fancy and the box indicates it's red but it isn't, it is a good gun though but better as a shotgun as the rifle stock comes off too easy.

Hi, don't have an x-box but a few lightguns on DC and ps1. I got the problem of accuracy on a big ( 70cm) crt ( edges and aim going crazy). Stillcool , does the brightness need to be high or low ? I heard it also gets better in a dark room. Is that right?

I own that gun. The gun works fine on my Sony sd crt wega_kv27fs100l . I have only played house of the dead. I've never tried it with silent scope.

I got the mad catz light guns for the xbox they work fine, and no messing around with the screen brightness.
Biggs makes a valid point, i find all light guns tend to lose a bit of accuracy around the edge of the screen.
And stillcool is also right, a 100hz crt will not work with light guns.

Doing a little Googling, brightness should be turned up.

Back to the original thread, I'd try a definitely not 100Hz gun like the MadCatz or the VGA rifle with the exact same set up you have already, either ebay or local shops.
