Sega Menacer power supply mod

Bought a Menacer light gun for the Megadrive some weeks ago.. Can’t say I’m too happy about the battery operation, six triple-A batteries worth of W-T-F! I’d rather have it running on a separate power supply vs. keeping the option of ducking behind the sofa for a reload, so time for a power supply mod then! Figured I’ll go for that default 9VDC wall-wart (like with my Megadrive)..

Menacer, electronics

Hot glue, the (not-so) secret weapon of the tinkerer..

Menacer, through-hole for the connector

Dear me, what a neat hole!

Amazing display of plug’n play.

Now if only this mod would improve the quality of the bundled games.. :)
