The Troubleshooter
The Act LabsTM Light Gun Compatibility Patch
The House of the Dead 2 *

If you only have one light gun, you do not need the Troubleshooter to play this game.

Out of the box, House of the Dead 2 already reads the mouse in a way that is compatible with the Act Labs light gun. However, only one player can be configured to play with a mouse. In a two-player game, the second player must use either the keyboard or a joystick.

The Troubleshooter makes it possible to play this game with two light guns, using the same technique by which it adds support to all the other games.


For the Troubleshooter to work correctly, the game must be configured so that both players are using the keyboard.

  • Run the House of the Dead 2 Config program.
  • Select Keyboard for both players.
  • Click OK.
