Hi everyone!

Im new to this site, used to own a cdi and have recently bought another one from ebay as I miss it! I found this site after looking for a peacekeeper revolver on google and am still looking for one! Anyone help, let me know!

Im after games (dragons lair one or two, mad dog mccree [with the gun!] ) and any remotes/controllers or joysticks.

Hope to speak to fellow cdi gamers!

feel free to contact me if you'd like!

Justin

Welcome! Another Diamond CD-i geezer from the UK :D

If your looking for a complete Mad Dog McCree Boxset we sell them over at The Blackmoon Project CD-i Store in two variants, one at £20 complete and brand new with the game plus Peacekeeper Revolver and another offered at £10 without the game but includes everything right down to the little velcro fasteners although the box is a little bashed up!

you should regularly check eBay, a lot of cd-i stuff is offered every week.

For the games, being a fan of the PeaceKeeper Gun you should try to get hold of Mad Dog McCree, Chaos Control and Creature Shock!

What kind of games do you like? You can also browse through the Games Archive at The Black Moon Project and have a look if you come across any familiar favourites!

I could recommend some games but they would be biased to my own tastes! So her goes... i'd recommend The Apprentice because it's just the damned cutest platform game invented plus it has a hidden mini Space Invaders game that has to be seen to be believed and also "Nudality" cheat codes which can be activated from the Game Over screen. If your really into old school gaming then you can't go far wrong with the ADS conversions of Arcade Classics and Pac-Panic the finest version available on any format! Continuing the theme of classic remakes then Golden Oldies 1 and Golden Oldies 2 warrants further investigation, although these are quite rare but can be found for about $20 a piece from the GAMGATORS PHILIPS CDI SHOWCASE store on ebay USA. Outside of these, Hotel Mario is very playable and you can't beat the American Laser Conversions along with other Digital Video games like Brain Dead 13.

thanks!

Much appreciated!

Yeah, Im really looking forward to owning a peacekeeper and as many games as possible!

How does the revolver work? Is like a regular light gun? And how do you calibrate it?

I saw on the "blackmoonproject" website that they sell the set with "velcro fasteners". What are they for? is the gun movement on the screen pretty sharp?

Justin :D

The Velcro Fasteners were used to attach the lightgun sensor to your TV so it's fixed in position! I was just illustrating that the slightly bashed boxset is as complete as the new version except it just lacks the game Mad Dog McCree. Not to confuse the issue only one Mad Dog McCree Boxset was ever released however the Peacekeeper Revolver has been issued in a package as the gun itself without any game! If that makes any sense!?! :roll:

Calibration is carried out throughout whichever game you are using be it Mad Dog McCree its sequels or perhaps the Crime Patrol series and Who Shot Johnny Rock. Quite a few of these games to be had!

ah, i see!

I thought it might be for some kind of sensor.

so, whats the smoothness of the gun in mad dog like?

just curious as i never owned it originally and remember the arcade version fondly, blimey i spent so much money on that and got sick of that funeral directors face! Anyone who's played it knows what i mean!!!!

well, you can imagine it's not as smooth as a lightgun! It's damn playable nonetheless! How smooth do you want it to be :D

the revolver

Post by xxjustinukxx » Tue Feb 21, 2006 7:17 pm

Hi!

This is probably a bit cheeky and a bit of an ask, but ive got an eye on mad dog game on ebay and if i win it would be looking for JUST the peacekeeper revolver, did you say you sell that separately?

the game ends in an hour so if you get a chance to reply before then, thatd be great! If not, dont worry and i'll either buy just the gun or the game and the gun from the "black moon project" anyway.

Thanks!! :)

what a dummy!

I just noticed on the Black Moon Project that they do indeed sell the gun separately - for £10!

sorry to bother you all!!
