Do these patches change the region on the Japanese light gun itself or do they patch the game files? I’m in a similar boat with an OEM import light gun.

I would like to know how one can realize our Lightgun is JP or US or PAL ? I recently bought one (Have no mark, it's third party I guess very similar to Original SEGA JP version, auto fire, etc) I am trying to play some games: Some works, some not

I've got an imported light gun too. Are there patches for the other problem titles?

There are no patches, only patched GDI images of all NTSC-U games. You need several posts, after which your page will be activated and the download section will become available to you

I am about to purchase an imported Japanese official light gun because of this thread but I want to confirm with someone if the patched games work without issue. I have a GDEmu so I would be loading the GDI files to an SD card. Has anyone had success loading the patched HotD2, Confidential Mission and Death Crimson OX?

Found this thread looking for the light gun patches to use the Japanese light gun with the US roms. Need to post a few times to access the link apparently. Awesome work to fix this Megavolt.
