Hi Mikael,
Take a look at the 64HDD Projects page. There is a lightgun project there. 
The gun from LightFantastic is not like a light pen, but slightly 
different as far as how the trigger is activated. I believe the gun will 
pull pin 5 to 5V. My "customised" gun is wired like this and works with 
the games you mention. There is a demo program there in BASIC too!

Subject: Lightgun programming?


I just got a Light gun of ebay. It came with the usual three Light 
Fantastic games (Army Days, Gangster and Time Traveller). 

Now I really would like to make my own light gun enabled programs/games? 
Does it work like a light pen or what? 

I saw in an old thread on that it had som,e thing to do 
with address $D013? Anybody have any info about light-gun programming?
