    Hi there, I've had my N8 for quite some time, and it's working quite well. Recently I've bought a Retro Zapper from Retro Bit, which they claimed would work on both the original NES and FC. I'm using the Famicom AV btw, and it doesn't work when I'm playing games like Duck Hunt, Hogan's Alley through the N8. Does the N8 have compatibility issues with 3rd party controllers?


    Thanks!

    Okay, I found out what's the problem. Seems like the AV Famicom doesn't recognize the Zapper without some simple modding. Mods, please delete or close this thread. Thanks!

    You do know what to do right? Simple 2 wire mod to controller port 2 for the video sync signals.

    Yeah, although I do not have access to any soldering tools currently. Would have to do it sometime near the future. Thanks!
