Syntax is working on a project called MSX Guncon. MSX Guncon is a modified lightgun, which unfortunately isn't compatible with the ASCII Plus-X Terminator. The lightgun itself is already fully functional. Syntax is now working on some Guncon compatible software. We expect to hear more news about this project later this summer.

Well, is it Gunstick compatible then? Light gun is so simple device, that there are no too many options connect it different way. If I would be starting to produce light gun's for MSX, I would make a switch, that you could use to select any existing gun "standard" as well.

But the Terminator-X from ASCII has negative logic, hasn't it?

I know that Gunstick and Sega LightPhaser are the same thing, with the DATA line remapped. Is it easy to convert a Nintendo Zapper?

Actually yes, but even if you have to buy one NOT chip, that is something like 0.5€ or something...
