Hi Argon,
have you had time to try new demulshooter + touchmote ? Because in this moment is impossible to play Luigi's Mansion with 2 players and one dolphin bar in mode 4, it works only in mode 2 (mouse mode).
Thanks in advance!

Except for 1 or 2 games (Gundam dualscreen 2players and Op. Ghost ringwidefor full screen are the only ones I have in mind right now) I try to avoid GameLoader as much as possible.
Mainly because I don't really have any visibility of what it's really doing and it was messing badly with DemulShooter a few years ago.

I usually manage to get exactly what I want with dgVoodo and/or DxWnd

As for Nomousy, it worked perfectly when I was using WIn7 but I have a lot of trouble with it since I updated to WIn10 on my gun config

Operation Ghost - I use the below Autohotkey to load it full screen without TP or GameLoader

SetTitleMatchMode, 2
DetectHiddenWindows, on

Sleep, 1000

   Run, C:\Users\User1\LaunchBox\Emulator\demul light gun\DemulShooter_v8.5.7\DemulShooter.exe -target=ringwide -rom=og ; Pathway to demulshooter ignore it says Version 8.5.7 I cannot be bothered to change all my shortcuts it is newest version

Sleep, 1000

   Run, C:\Users\User1\LaunchBox\Games\Sega RingWide\og\gs2.exe ; Pathway to Operation Ghost game.exe

; The next bit resizes the window to FULLSCREEN on my screen (1920x1080)

   WinWait, ahk_class A

        WinGetPos, WinPosX, WinPosY, WindowWidth, WindowHeight, A
       WinSet, Style, -0xC40000, A
        WinMove, A, , 0, -20, A_ScreenWidth, 1100
        ;Hide Windows Task Bar and Start Button. (Remove the following two lines if you don't want that behaviour)
        WinHide ahk_class Shell_TrayWnd
        WinHide Start ahk_class Button

; moves the system mouse cursor to the very corner to just make it tidy and blocks it from moving

   MouseMove, 9999, 9999
      BlockInput MouseMove

Sleep, 3000 ; needed on my machine to make nomousy then work

   Run, C:\Users\User1\LaunchBox\No Mouse\nomousy.exe / hide ; pathway to nomousy

; below section upon pressing Escape turns off wiibar via a shortcut, closes Touchmote, closes game, runs nomousy again to turn mouse cursor back on, kills no mousey so it works again the next time, this is needed on my computer might not be on yours, allows mouse to move and repositions in centre of screen you will need to change the figures for your set up
   $Esc::
{
   Run, C:\Users\User1\LaunchBox\AutoHotkey\light gun\off - bar and touchmote.lnk ; most likely not needed for you
   WinWaitClose, Touchmote ; most likely not needed for you
   Send, !{F4}
   Send, {Esc}
   Run, C:\Users\User1\LaunchBox\No Mouse\nomousy.exe
   Run, taskkill /IM "nomousy.exe" /F
   BlockInput MouseMoveOff
   MouseMove, 960, 540, 0
}

Exitapp

This might help some people - I run a bat file to start Wiibar and Touchmote before this AHK and the "Run, C:\Users\User1\LaunchBox\AutoHotkey\light gun\off - bar and touchmote.lnk" turns them off and then does the other bits. So it is going to need some butchering for it to works for others - it isn't going to work straight out the box.

Nomousy

For nomousy on Windows 10 I find if after you run it to hide and then run it to make it reappear if you then kill process as shown above it works the next time as well- there is no process to close so I don't know why it works but it does.

Cheers

Has anyone with a dolphin bar + wiimote knows how to make the "middle button" works in wiimote (for 1 player)? shooting and reload working great for me, but in games like virtua cop 3 that have "middle button" it doesnt work.

Which mode are you using the bar in? Mode 4? And if so are you also using Touchmote?

Hi all, could some one give me pointers in getting aimtrak side buttons working with demulshooter. Aimtrak is configured as per ultimarc guide and dual aimtraks working in various games and emulators except side buttons.

Operation Ghost - I use the below Autohotkey to load it full screen without TP or GameLoader

[...]
Thanks for sharing this, may be usefull for some people
I managed to get to the same result with a resolution patcher I made months ago when the game was just released, it's doing the same window modification but inside the .exe so no need to hack it after execution
Unfortunatelly, I found that (just my impression I may be wrong) streching the window fullscreen results in a loss of graphics quality compared to what GameLoader is bout to do with antialiasing, etc....and dgVodoo has no effect on this game.
This is just small details though, I do agree  >:D



On a totally different subject, and thanks to this stupid COVID-19 blocking me at home, I was working to add support to Joystick, Joypad, analog devices (mounted arcade guns, etc.....)
(And I think it might concern Wiimotes too, they may work without TouchMote)
If anyone has a couple of minutes to try this DsDiag_v2.0 app, and check with their own devices (I already know about the Aimtraks, don't bother  ;D), I would be able to get a few interresting details I can't get at home without having all these devices :
- Run DsDiag_v2.0.exe
- Choose a device from the list a the top.
- For analog devices, you'll then have to choose X and Y axis in their respective list (usually 0x30 and 0x31 should be good). Some devices have a lot of different available axis
- You should see buttons reacting when you press them on your device, and the crosshair moving on the black backgroun according to your selected axis
- Once you've found your device with all of these clues, you can generate a text repport with the upper right button near the device list and share it with me (it will appear in the folder)

If you could also tell me at the same time what is your device and how you used it (I can think of Wiimotes with or without XInput/Touchmote, on different dolphinbar mode or whatever, etc...)
Thanks guys  ;)

Like I always say, baby steps....
If you're new to it, just run everything manually and try to see what's working or not, step by step

Starting directly with BAT files and multiple commands is a bad thing to do, as  there are way more errors you can do and not see (particulary true with BAT)
And it's even more true because of the Wiimote -> DolphinBar -> TouchMote thing

i doubt you are wrong but as I was at my wits end with getting the damn thing full screen, i decided to go that route, and am not clever enough to figure out how to do inside the exe!! i also have the advantage of never having got it to work full screen with Game Loader so never got to see how good it could look - As they say ignorance is bliss and all that  :)

I have also attached 4 files from trying out my Wiimotes and new DSDiag. I don't use Glovepie anymore (but have it on computer form trying something) - would you like a couple of examples of it with that as well or is that enough?

I know I have said thank you before, but Demulshooter makes things so easy to deal with even with the Wiimotes, so again thank you for this wonderful piece of kit.

So Wiimotes are like my SONY DualShock3 controller....they appear alone as some HID gamepad but don't output anything, unless used with TouchMote or (for  sony DS4) the same virtual XInput driver.
If anyone has another kind of device to test (Ultimark U-HID, mounted analog guns, etc....) this would add info to my database  ;)


A quick update : DemulShooter v8.8.0
- Added support to Friction

A few things :
Use demulshooter.exe -target=windows -rom=friction to run
Work only if you're using the modified VSIOBOARD.DLL (and that way you can define your own keys in the .ini file)
Machinegun (bonus weapon in the game) will not autofire because of dmulshooter. This is a quick release I'll try to improve it later

- edit : See 2 post below for zip file -

Hey argonlefou!
Thanks for the quick support, although it seems to be something wrong with the attached file
as it states that the rom file isnt supported.  :'(

I think the attached file is of the original 8.7.0 rather than the updated as that is what shows when I just tried a different game and on the debug text

Thanks for the quick turn around on it, and glad the files were useful

Just a quick question about the last of your files ( Wiimote, Dolphin Bar, Mode 2 - Emulated mouse.txt) :
Wereyou able to activate buttons and move the crosshair with your wiimote like this ?
And do you know if 2 Wiimotes could work independently like that ?

Yes it all worked, axis and up to 5 buttons

And do you know if 2 Wiimotes could work independently like that ?

Mode 2 only allows 1 mouse to be connected to it at a time, however other people have said that if you have 2 wiibar and both on mode 2 it will recognise it as two mice (I think SuperMagoAlex and Ginzu have this set up) I only have one Wiibar so I cannot test that for you, however I would assume (always dangerous) that the two wiibar would have their own IDs and therefore be seen as two devices - I assume that is how the Aimtrak works?

The second download worked - thank you. Now to just go and set it up

Cheers

  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
First post so please be gentle 🙏🏻 Only just starting out with LightGun games and want to implement demulshooter with my Model 2, demul running Naomi and Teknoparrot/PC games so have a lot of learning to do.
Just wanted to see if you could get this working with the Redream emulator???
Understand I could use demul for Dreamcast but redream is what Iím using atm.
Hoping this might be something that can be done.

Keep up the great work 👍🏻😊

Yes, I have both setup: 2 bar in mode 2 and 1 bar in mode 4 + touchmote.

All games works perfectly, I have only a problem with this config: Luigi's Mansion + NEW demulshooter64 + touchmote + 1 bar in mode 4, the cursors don't move.

So I think the new demulshooter64 doesn't work with touchmote.

Argon,
as the demulshooter was updated with the game Friction I got the new version and the virtua cop3 chihiro stopped working. I'm using this command to run the rom according to what was passed in the manual:
Cxbx.exe /load c:\cxbx\vc3.xbe

The game opens but I can't start it, key 1 doesn't work.

I have the same problem, but I also can't "start" the game with a mapped out key even when I run the rom without demulshooter when I launch the game via command prompt. If I launch the emu and then load the rom, the keyboard controls seem to work.

Can you execute the game via command prompt without running demulshooter and see if your controls still work?

Hello,
Redream is "only" a Dreamcast emulator, whereas Demul also allow to run Naomi, Naomi2, Hikaru and Atomiswave arcade games.
And unfortunatelly for you, DemulShooter is only targetting Demul's arcade games, not Dreamscast games. This is why, at the end, redream is useless for our case.


Argon,
as the demulshooter was updated with the game Friction I got the new version and the virtua cop3 chihiro stopped working. I'm using this command to run the rom according to what was passed in the manual:
Cxbx.exe /load c:\cxbx\vc3.xbe

The game opens but I can't start it, key 1 doesn't work.
I finally managed to reproduce the issue, after a dozen times without error.
DemulShooter ended in some kind of infinite loop while waiting for Cxbx to load the rom completely
This only happened once, and never when I ran DemulShooter way after the game has started. I think you can try (for now, untill I figure it out) to add some kind of delay to run demulshooter or even just try to run it once you're at the main menu just to seet if it's working or not


Yes, I have both setup: 2 bar in mode 2 and 1 bar in mode 4 + touchmote.

All games works perfectly, I have only a problem with this config: Luigi's Mansion + NEW demulshooter64 + touchmote + 1 bar in mode 4, the cursors don't move.

So I think the new demulshooter64 doesn't work with touchmote.
Unfortunatelly, I don't have WiiMotes to test.
I'm currently working on a new version of demulshooter that could handle analog devices, Wiimotes or whatever directly without using Xinput dlls (I don't know if they are compatible with 64bits asembly)
I can't say for sure if this is the reason why it's not working for you, or if the new version will improve things (just that it's not ready yet)


And here's DemulShooter v8.8.1, correcting autofire not working in Friction :
- Edit (important) : a new VSIOBOARD.dll (v2) has been made, but I didn't test it with DemulShooter so be carefull if you want to use it

Thanks a lot for your reply Argon 👍🏻 Just that Dreamcast has a few gun games like Confidetial mission and HOTD2 etc so just wondered if this would be possible. Understand you can play these games on different platforms anyways just thought Iíd ask and see.
I think the guys at redream are working on adding mice support so hopefully guns will work soon.

Thanks again and keep up the amazing work 👍🏻🙏🏻😊

Thanks Argon, with your instruction i managed to make it work, follow my ahk maybe help others:

Run, c:\cxbx\Cxbx.exe /load c:\cxbx\vc3.xbe, c:\cxbx
Sleep 5000
send,{AltDown}{Enter}{AltUp}
Sleep 5000
Run, c:\DemulShooter\DemulShooter.exe -target=chihiro -rom=vcop3, c:\demulshooter


just don't forget to change the directories, if it's different from mine.

Argon,

Finally managed to get Demulshooter running with my Model 2 emulator and the script working for different crosshairs etc. However I may of missed something and need your help please. When using the crosshairs they are totally off from where the gun actually shoots and not in line by a long way. Configured the gun in set up etc but just wanted to ask if Iíve missed something. Using your latest build not the one that you recommend going back to is that the reason??

Thanks for any help
 
Paul

Forgot to add that Iím using a Aimtrak gun and itís wireless 👍🏻

Also when I close the emulator in launchbox the demulShooter screen is still showing and doesnít close automatically. Is there something I need to add to the Cmd line??


Thanks a lot and an amazing tool to use keep up the amazing work you do 😊

Hey Punkdark2000.
This code of yours didn't work here.
When I start the game, the emulator opens and the game starts. After the "WARNING" screen, the emulator minimizes and does not return. I have to "close the process". Do you know how I can solve it?
Thanks!

  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
Is it possible to play Rambo of Teknoparrot with a light gun or other weapon?

In case what do you recommend to buy? Thanks in advance.

The first step is to disable this Warning message, enter the emulator and go to the settings option and click on the "Allow Admin Privilege" option. Close the emulator and try to run with the shortcut AHK that I sent.

Argon,
I'm using it with the April 2 version and it's working, if you want to update the manual with that information.

Argon,

Finally managed to get Demulshooter running with my Model 2 emulator and the script working for different crosshairs etc. However I may of missed something and need your help please. When using the crosshairs they are totally off from where the gun actually shoots and not in line by a long way. Configured the gun in set up etc but just wanted to ask if Iíve missed something. Using your latest build not the one that you recommend going back to is that the reason??

Thanks for any help

Forgot to add that Iím using a Aimtrak gun and itís wireless 👍🏻
Honestly I don't really remember such a model2 advice (it may be true but old and I may have forgotten)
the only thing I know, is that you have to set the crosshair option in model2 ini file to 0 because these will be totally off.
Model2 may still have aiming issue according to the display (16/9, 4/3, in fullscreen). That's something I want to have a look again soon

Thanks, but here's an update correcting vcop3 bug, you shouldn't use timer anymore

Thanks for the reply Argon 😊 and think Iíve sorted it now so not a issue 👍🏻🙏🏻  Totally new to this so just a learning curve atm.
Do I need to add anything else to the cmd line as when I close the emulator in launchbox I still have the Demulshooter screen up and have to press my two buttons that close the emulator again to close the shooter??

The only thing Iíve noticed when using the crosshairs etc is towards the left and right side of the screen it disappears. Pretty even on both sides so maybe something to do with display etc, Iím using fullscreen and have a 50Ē TV.

Just some feedback and if you do go back and look into Model 2 please let me know and thank you. Once Iíve sorted Model 2 Iíll be moving onto Naomi with Demul so might be back lol 👍🏻☺️

Thanks again

Also donít know how to attach comments or quote etc ☺️ Total noob 🙏🏻😂😇 sorry

Hi Punkdark2000
I tried to do it again here and it still didn't work.
The "WARNING" message is not from the emulator (Admin Privileges, as it is already checked), but from the game itself.
After this message disappears and the cutscene will start, then the game minimizes.

Hi Argon,

Need some help with getting Demulshooter running with Demul please. All games work firstly with Demul however once adding the cmd line for the shooter it doesnít load

Cmd line I'm using is : DemulShooter.exe -target=demul07a -rom=hotd2

Demulshooter loads up but not the game 🤷🏼‍♂️ Get a screen that flashes up for a second please see pic and then nothing.

Just some more info as Iím using this in launchbox my emulator is just ĎDemulí no 07a extension or anything.
Have a default line cmd parameter in launchbox which is Ď-run=naomi -rom=Ď removing this and no games load.

Hoping you or anyone can help out please

Thanks a lot

With the new version that Argon made available, you no longer need this timer, you can run the same way as before.

I already answerd that a few times recently : no. Not before a patch to "flatten" game mechanics or not untill I have a lot of time to make arithmetics calculations to be able to use this dome-screen game

As always......baby steps and debug files

Start by runing demul alone, windowed mode to make sure the emulator is working
Then use demulshooter by using a commandline manually and see what is happening with your windowed demul (control, buttons, etc..)
Then only at the end try to make the whole thing work together with frontends, scripts or whatever you want to use without knowing exactly what it is really doing behind the curtain

At any steps, use the -v command of demulshooter to create and share a debug file if you have trouble

Sorry Argon, Finally I managed to display Art is dead in 640x240p with dgvooodoo instead of 640x480i. It looks nicer in crt screens.
 The problem is the aiming gets missaligbed as happened with m2emu using dxwnd. Do you think this can be fixed? I know its not a mainstream game, but gungallery+ arts, like it

Hi Argon,

Thanks a lot and defo baby steps 🤪 cmd lines etc go totally over my head and running -v cmd even more so with DemulShooter 🤦🏻‍♂️🙏🏻 Sorry.

Good news though after multiple tries etc I finally have this working thank you ☺️
Also in Model 2 I can actually access the service menu and change settings and do gun calibration all with my Aimtrack so very happy.

Need some help with Demul though please 🙏🏻 Hotd i can access the Test/service menu and scroll through with the trigger and select with either my right or left button which is fine and works perfect 👍🏻

However with Confidential Mission I can access the Test/service menu but the trigger doesnít scroll through and the right button does nothing. Was hoping you could look into this for me when you have time please and help out as I thought if hotd2 works I thought this would work the same??!

Iíve attached pics of my settings etc and hope that helps

Thanks a lot and hope you donít mind me asking 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Paul
