I have nothing to contribute here, but I have a question.
Can you let us know what emulator you are using for what system, and perhaps any handy links you can suggest ?

I'd be very interested to know what is running what (as I'm hoping to get my Aim Trak pair set up and  running).

Thank you

For the 32x,CD and MD I always use Gens

I used Demul for dreamcast but you need decent spec machine for it.

I used Demul for dreamcast but you need decent spec machine for it.

for gens, is there anyway to run at 1024x768?  i couldn’t find a way and despise when my screen switches resolutions.

i tried demul for dreamcast, excellent emu but even after calibrating my guns, the target is waaayyy off, like a quarter of the screen off.  i know the gun is calibrated cause i can see the mouse cursor (not in game reticle) go to where i point.

i’m running at 1024x768 if that makes a difference.

thanks for any input you might have!

Atari 2600:
Here is a video of Darth Marino using the "Bee" emulator with an Aimtrak.

He seems to have gotten it to work, however I haven't had such luck. The crosshairs keep zipping right into the corners in fullscreen mode. Aiming does work properly in windowed mode, but of course windowed mode is nothing to put on your cabinet.
If anyone knows how to set up this emu for the Aimtrak, that would be cool.
