Guncon3 Kernel Driver

Linux kernel driver for the Guncon3 light gun from Namco.

I have only tested this module on Ubuntu 14.04 and there are couple of bugs, some work is still required to make it as stable as I want.

Build and Installation

Build and install using make

$ make
$ sudo make modules_install 
$ sudo depmod -a # you may also need to run depmod

and enable it with modprobe

$ sudo modprobe guncon3


Once the module is installed the Guncon3 should appear as a regular joystick that you should be able to see with jstest-gtk or similar. I have not setup MAME to use this light gun yet, when I have then I will put some instructions ... or if someone else does it before me PRs are always welcome.
