Updated issue [eliminated the dual screen crash which has it's own resolution - 00314]. The current Gun not working issue is still valid.

There's a regression on this as of at least 0.145u4, the game does not boot. It displays "10", "11", blank then "CH" on the 7seg then locks up. Test mode is also broken, it performs the rug test, "Device Check" then freezes up.

This is marked GNW, why is there a bug on it?

Guns are working since 0.199, despite they should be analogic controls. Anyway, I don't think this ticket should be opened considering this game has NOT WORKING status.

It was an early regression. Can no longer reproduce the error message either. This game uses a CCD Camera sensor system. How can I explain? There is a black and white camera either placed near the monitor (Crisis Zone, Vampire Night and Time Crisis 3 which has its CCD in the gun tower. Confirmed using a TC3 DX camera manual) or inside the gun unit (Operation Thunder Hurricane and Teraburst). The camera detects an led light. Movement from either the light or camera will read its value. Either way, analog controls are mapped via the CCD (actually manufactured by Sony) which isn't emulated.

This may be marked as resolved if someone wants to give it a test and confirm the issue is solved. RB added the basics for the gun inputs 14 years ago in and I added the code to actually return gun input responses here:

I was able to play up to where the boss hangs in the air in level 2 using the gun I/O (unset the "disable machine init" dipswitch before testing) without any gun I/O errors. This implemented the analog controls so you must use the analog control keybinds (I tested with the mouse) when the dipswitch is unset instead of the arrow keys like before the commit.

A side effect of the hacked gun controls is during POST, the gun I/F roms mark as bad. The stage 2 boss bug I may open as a different bug report and show a video reference to how that section plays out (hope it's not due to konppc.ccp being spaghetti code that needs a major fix).

Amusingly at the time this bug was reported back in 2008, the game was mistakenly marked as working.

Didn't notice I broke the gun I/O boot test. I sent a PR to fix it. It was a dumb mistake.
