01 My Light Gun does not shoot. What should I do?


Check that:
>   Your RGT Camera is correctly connected to your console and the Green light is ON.
>   Your light gun is not in sleep mode. Wake by pressing A, B or C button.
>   Your light gun is switched ON; the light gun’s Red power light should be ON. If the light gun’s Red power light is flashing the batteries are low and need replacing.
>   Your light gun is not out of the cameras field-of-view. If it is, the camera’s Red light will be ON.
>   Your light gun’s scope piece has been COMPLETELY inserted; if not, the camera’s Red light will be ON.
>   Your light gun has already been calibrated; the Yellow calibration lights should be OFF.
>   Your light gun is aiming directly at your TV screen. It will not shoot if pointed elsewhere.
>   Your shooting game has been inserted and loaded into your console.
>   Your shooting positions may be out of the 5-10 foot range.
>   Your light gun was temporarily out of the camera’s field-of-view as you pulled the trigger.
>   You DON’T have direct sunlight or any incandescent light source, such as light bulbs, ceiling spots or standard lamps where the RGT Camera is facing. However, you can have as many fluorescent lamps or energy saving lamps in the background.
   
     

02 My RGT Camera has a Red light ON. What should I do?


To turn off the red light, ensure:
>   Your light gun is switched ON; the light gun’s Red power light should be ON.
>   Your light gun is not in sleep mode. Wake by pressing A, B or C button.
>   Your light gun is located in front of the camera within a 5-10 foot range.
>   Your light gun’s scope piece has been COMPLETELY inserted into the connector of the light gun; if not, the camera’s Red light will be ON most times; Only if you move your light gun very close to the RGT Camera, the camera’s Red light will be OFF; This is the indication that the scope piece has NOT been COMPLETELY inserted into the connector; Remove it and then insert it again completely.
>   Your light gun is within the camera’s field-of-view. Move the gun slowly up, down, left and right to see where the camera's field-of-view falls. You will notice when the gun is out of this field-of-view, a RED light will appear on the camera. You may need to rotate the camera head down/up slightly to suit your comfortable shooting position. Make sure your gun is within this field of view while shooting.
>   Your light gun’s Red power light is not flashing indicating that your light gun’s batteries are not low.
>   You don’t have direct sunlight or any incandescent light source, such as an ordinary light bulb in the background where the RGT Camera is facing. However, you can have as many fluorescent lamps or energy saving lamps in the background.
>   You DON’T have direct sunlight or any incandescent light source, such as light bulbs, ceiling spots or standard lamps where the RGT Camera is facing. However, you can have as many fluorescent lamps or energy saving lamps in the background.
   
     

03 My RGT Camera has one or both Yellow lights ON. What should I do?


These indicate that your light gun has NOT been calibrated and is still in Calibration Mode. Please refer back to the Calibration Instructions and follow them carefully. It should take only a few seconds.

When calibrating be sure:
>   Your light gun is switched ON; the light gun’s Red power light should be ON and not flashing.
>   Your light gun is not in sleep mode. Wake by pressing A, B or C button.
>   Your light gun is located in front of the camera within a 5-10 foot range.
>   Your light gun is within the camera’s field-of-view.
>   Your RGT Camera’s Red light is not ON, but the Green light is ON.
>   You DON’T have direct sunlight or any incandescent light source, such as light bulbs, ceiling spots or standard lamps where the RGT Camera is facing. However, you can have as many fluorescent lamps or energy saving lamps in the background.
   
     

04 My Light Gun is NOT accurate after calibration. What should I do?


Your light gun is only accurate if you have done the calibration correctly and accurately. It only takes a moment, but it is important to take care. This means shooting at the top left corner and the bottom right corner of your TV screen in the right order and with accuracy.

You can incorrectly calibrate your light gun without noticing by:
>   Not waiting for the first Yellow light to go OFF before moving on to shoot at the bottom right corner. Sometimes you may need to shoot several times before hitting the correct spot so that the Yellow light goes OFF. Until it does, you cannot proceed to the bottom right corner.
>   Shooting at the top left corner when the bottom right Yellow light is ON.
>   unintentionally pulling the trigger when the gun is pointing at the wrong spot.
>   If you use a Widescreen TV (e.g. 16:9) to display normal 4:3 images of your video game, you will have two blank areas on your screen not used by your game. Shoot at the top left corner, then the bottom right corner of the video images of your game, instead of the screen.
>   You DON’T have direct sunlight or any incandescent light source, such as light bulbs, ceiling spots or standard lamps where the RGT Camera is facing. However, you can have as many fluorescent lamps or energy saving lamps in the background.

To correct inaccuracy, follow the Calibration Instructions carefully and recalibrate your light gun. Remember, you can recalibrate at any time by pressing the H-Calibration button twice quickly. If you are in the middle of the game, first press the Start button to pause the game, then go into Calibration Mode and then press Start to resume play.
   
     

05 My Light Gun loses accuracy after a while. What should I do?

>   Assuming your calibration is done correctly, your gun should be accurate so long as your shooting position, distance or style did not change after calibration. If they have changed, you will need to recalibrate your gun. Put your gun in Calibration Mode at any time by pressing the H-Calibration button twice quickly. If you are in the middle of the game, first press the Start button to pause the game, then go into Calibration Mode and then press Start to resume play.
>   You DON’T have direct sunlight or any incandescent light source, such as light bulbs, ceiling spots or standard lamps where the RGT Camera is facing. However, you can have as many fluorescent lamps or energy saving lamps in the background.
   
     

06 My Light Gun’s buttons don’t always work. What should I do?


Your light gun works in much the same way as a TV remote controller. You need to point your light gun towards the RGT Camera and TV screen if you wish to send commands.

Make sure:
>   Your RGT Camera is connected to a game console and both are in working order.
>   The Green light on your camera is ON and Red and Yellow indicators are OFF.
>   Your light gun is not in sleep mode. Wake by pressing A, B or C button.
>   Your light gun is located in front of the camera within a 5-10 foot range.
>   Your light gun’s batteries are not low.
>   You DON’T have direct sunlight or any incandescent light source, such as light bulbs, ceiling spots or standard lamps where the RGT Camera is facing. However, you can have as many fluorescent lamps or energy saving lamps in the background.
   
     

07 My Light Gun has a flashing Red light. What should I do?

>   The batteries in your light gun are low and need replacing. Please use Alkaline batteries for best performance and long playing time. Turn off your light gun when not in use to save batteries.
>   You DON’T have direct sunlight or any incandescent light source, such as light bulbs, ceiling spots or standard lamps where the RGT Camera is facing. However, you can have as many fluorescent lamps or energy saving lamps in the background.
   
     

08 How do I determine if my RGT Camera is working normally?

>   Connect the RGT Camera to a game console (XBox or PS2); Never connect it to both consoles at the same time, this may damage the camera.
>   After the connection, if a light gun compatible shooting game has NOT been loaded, the Green light on the camera should be ON; Otherwise, the RGT camera may be defective.
>   After the connection, if a light gun compatible shooting game has loaded, the Green, Red and one Yellow light on the camera should be ON (The Red light will be OFF if the Light Gun is ON and within the Camera’s field-of-view); Otherwise, the RGT Camera may be defective.
>   You DON’T have direct sunlight or any incandescent light source, such as light bulbs, ceiling spots or standard lamps where the RGT Camera is facing. However, you can have as many fluorescent lamps or energy saving lamps in the background.
   
     

09 How do I determine if my Light Gun is working normally?

>   Please make sure that your RGT Camera is working normally as discussed in the previous question.
>   After you have connected your RGT Camera to a game console and loaded a light gun compatible shooting game, the Green, Red and one Yellow light on the camera should be ON.
>   Turn on your light gun and make sure that the Red light on the gun is ON and is NOT flashing. If the Red light on the gun is NOT ON or is ON but flashing, replace both batteries. Please use Alkaline batteries for best performance and long playing time.
>   Point your light gun at the RGT Camera within a distance range between 5-10 feet, press any button or pull the trigger on the light gun, the Green light on the camera should flicker slightly. Otherwise either the light gun or the RGT camera, or both may not work normally. If you have pressed one button/trigger that does not lead to the flickering of the Green light, but all others do, then this button/trigger is defective.
>   Point your light gun at the RGT Camera within a distance range between 5-10 feet, the Red light on the camera must be turned OFF; otherwise please check:

 - You light gun is not in the sleep mode; Wake it up by pressing A, B, or C button.

 - Your light gun’s scope piece has been completely inserted into the connector on the light gun; Remove it carefully, and reinsert it again until its rear end completely aligned with the rear end of the connector on the gun (flush).

- You may have direct sunlight or any incandescent light source, such as an ordinary light bulb in the background where the RGT Camera is facing; Change your camera’s viewing angle and/or block direct sunlight with blinds or curtains and/or use  fluorescent lamps or energy saving lamps in the background as needed.
>   You DON’T have direct sunlight or any incandescent light source, such as light bulbs, ceiling spots or standard lamps where the RGT Camera is facing. However, you can have as many fluorescent lamps or energy saving lamps in the background.

If the Red light on the camera is still ON, either the light gun or RGT Camera, or both may not work normally.

After the Red light on the camera has been turned off, you can follow the calibration instructions to calibrate your light gun. During the calibration, please make sure that the Red light on the camera remains Off all the time.
   
     

10 How do I set up the RGT system with my front projection TV?

>   For a Front LCD projection TV, the placement of the camera is important. Please make sure that the camera is placed in such a way that the camera DOES NOT see the light from the projector directly. Otherwise, it may be overwhelmed by the strong light and the system may not work correctly.
>   Some of our customers place the camera on a sofa side table, a few feet away from the screen wall. The table's top level should be below the screen's bottom level so that the camera does not see the light from the projector. The player can then sit in front of the camera, 5-10 feet away from it, facing both camera and the screen. Feel free to try other ways that work best for your setting.
   
     

11 The machine gun doesn't shoot continuously in Crisis Zone.


A few people experience a problem with Time Crisis - Crisis Zone: The gun doesn't seem to shoot continuously with the machine gun mode due to GunCon2 Calibration setting.

There is a very simple work-around solution. Please follow the next few steps:
>   (1) Load the game and plug in your REGULAR GAME PAD into PS2. Wait until the game is loaded.
>    (2) Now plug in the RGT camera. After a while, you see three lights on the camera are turned on. Shoot at the upper left corner of your TV screen and then the lower right corner of the TV screen, until both yellow lights are off.
>   (3) Now you can start to play the game. The machine gun will work properly.
>   By doing so, you skip GunCon 2 Calibration related stuffs altogether. It is easier and faster.
