LightGun Master System games on Mega Drive
« on: May 07, 2020, 01:53 PM »
Hello. I'm planning to order the new MD Pro when it's released. I have a Konami Justifier gun and I'm wondering if it will work with SMS Phaser games or I will need to buy a Phaser light gun and connect it to my Mega Drive II console (will it work in that case?). Thanks in advance.

I am pretty sure you need the SMS light phaser. If I remember correctly the SMS light gun works with SMS games on a regular genesis with the Everdrive.

Yeah, I've read in this forum that it works fine with the Phaser but I wanted to know if it will work also with any MD light gun. Fortunately Phasers can be found pretty cheap so I'll think about getting one. Also I'll try to run some SMS rom (I own an old ToToTeK flashcart which I think supports SMS roms) and see if it works fine with my Justifier.

The Light Phaser, Menacer, and Justifier all rely on different configuration, coding, electronics, etc. to work.  None of them are compatible with each other.  You would need to build an adapter like this guy did!

I see. People report here that the Phaser works plugged to the Mega Drive so it's the easiest way, don't you think?

Yes, that's exactly what I'm looking for. For the MD games I'll still using my Justifier. The Menacer has only two exclusive games as far as I know (Menacer 6 games and T2JD) and they're pretty bad so it's not a problem. Even the SMS has a version of T2JD if I remember well.

Okay because you're first question was written like you're asking if the Justifier would work on SMS, at least that's how I took it.  If you get a working SMS Phaser (they weren't well made) you should be fine, yes.

Yes, my question was if the Justifier would work but as other people (including you) replied that it won't without building an adapter my second and easiest option is to get a Light Phaser and plug it directly.

I've got a Light Phaser for 10 euro + an extension cord in order to avoid damaging the controller port changing between pads and the gun.

It looks like there are turbo switches on the device.

Yes, in fact that's what it does. But will work with the Light Phaser connected to a MegaDrive? Because it's a SMS adapter.
