My Goal...
So basic, just be able to run demul shooter on demul to play hotd2 with 2 guns

You are using wrong Demul version. You must use Demul 0.7a 28-04-18, it works PERFECT with Demulshooter  :cheers:

I do not see that version in this list (http://demul.emulation64.com/downloads/), is it labeled something different?

Great work with Time Crisis 5 and sure there will be a few new ways to play it etc and get easier once people start tinkering with the input files etc 👍🏻. Hoping someone could assist with a AHK script for the attached picture please 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Someone has this running on an Aimtrak but doesnít share how the inputs are done but most likely with a AHK Script I would assume 🤷🏼‍♂️
Please see pic and any help appreciated

Thank you

OK guys, thank you for everyoneís help yesterday. I am getting really close. I reinstall DEMUL with a better version and now everything launches properly. My last issue is getting house of the dead two in Dreamcast to reload. I can get two guns on the screen to shoot and press start but they will not reload. Iíve even tried to assign one of the Amtrak buttons To right click but that doesnít work either.  Does anyone have any advice?

To go a little deeper into my set up, I am playing on an arcade cabinet that has four different Amtrak devices hooked up to it. Iím wondering if that is causing issues with reload? My screen is also tilted, could that cause any issues? Again I really appreciate everyoneís help.  This community is awesome and I hope I can repay the favor one day. Have a great day everyone.

Demulshooter has  no Dreamcast support for demul, only arcade roms(Naomi, atomiswave, Hikaru..)

You can also try Flycast for Dreamcast games it has Lightgun support built in without Demulshooter.

Thank you so much for your help!  This was my issue!  I know this seems obvious to most but, if you are using Demul to emulate games, make sure to set the console to Naomi, not Dreamcast.  Everything works great now.  I truly appreciate your help and I will do my best to help other members in the future!

Ok guys, I am still having issues.  I can get two guns on the screen when running demul naomi games like HOTD2 and confmiss but the problem is either gun controls both guns at the same time.  I cannot for the life of me get them to separate.  What can I do to get the guns to operate independently?  Thanks again for all of the help.

Hey did you ever figure this out?
I will be trying to setup Time Crisis 5 soon, I will share any useful info if I can get it to run correctly with 2 aimtraks...

An AHK script wont help for some of those if you don't go into your guns Control Panel and map buttons on your gun to the keyboard keys the script says.

Example you want coins on your gun. You use a AHK script to map coins to 5 on your keyboard. Unless you gun has a button that reads 5 it still won't work with your gun. So you would then go into Aimtrak Control Panel (I assumed, I don't have that gun) and map a button on your gun to 5. Then you can add coins with your gun.

Hi, I just recently started using this great application to use an analog joystick/gun in Teknoparrot. I am having an issue with using my analog device interfaced to an A-Pac. After calibrating in the Windows control panel, the x and y axes work fine and I'm able to get full range, but in the Demulshooter GUI, the crosshair only moves up and down about 50% so I cannot reach the top or bottom. I tried the Act Labs calibration but that only helped with offsetting the crosshair within the game. Is it possible to get Demulshooter behave the same as the Windows control panel, as far as the axes?

Also, when in the GUI, I cannot see the entire screen and some content is cut off and I can't resize the window, if that's an actual option.

Does anyone know any possible solutions?

Thank you!

Been working on Time Crisis 5 to work with Aimtrak light guns and not wanting to use AHK scripts.
Had a lot of help from Tiberius and thank you so much 🙏🏻 but just thought Iíd ask in here and see if anyone else can assist.
Off screen my right button is set as ĎGP Button 5í I know in model 2 and Mame etc this shows as Ď Joy 1 Button 5í
Wanting to edit the default input ini file in Time Crisis 5 for this to add credits and work if itís possible.

The line is below

.Bindings=(Name=ď       ď, Command=ďDebugAddCreditĒ)

what would I type in the space for ĎGP Button 5í to be recognised?? even if it can be as it might not be possible and a AHK script might be the only way.

Any help with this appreciated 😊 and if this canít be recognised then again thanks a lot and saved me a lot of time trying 👍🏻🙏🏻

This means DemulShooter did not hooked the emulator correctly.
Run the demulshooter command by adding a -v at the end, this will create a debug file in demulshooter's folder. You can then share it here

Did you try DsDiag app ? You should have a lot more debug infirmation with it. And you can also export the device data to a txt file (button in the right of the device selection list). A-PAc should work fine but having these details should be usefull, as well as max values written on the screen when you're moving the joystick

Hi argonlefou, thank you for your reply. Yes I tried the DsDiag and it also confirmed the Y-axis is limited and does not match the Windows control panel's ranges. One problem is that my analog positional gun's up/down swinging movement range is short while the x-axis range is okay. Is there a way to calibrate the controller in demulshooter like you would in Windows, or manually set the min/max y-axis values to tell your app that the controller's range is more than what it shows on screen (if that makes sense). The following is from the exported device data:

If the game itself has calibration in the service menu like Let's Go Island, I can get around this problem. However, Transformers does not have a working test menu, at least not yet.

I worked on a similar issue a few month ago, reported by an A-PAC user. Could you get some screenshots of DsDiag App with cursor on max position ?
I'm pretty sure your potentiometer is not using the full range available for A-PAC input.

To be a little more technical  :
- There is no hardware calibration in DemulShooter, Max-Min axis values are read directly into the device.
- A-PAC is outputing fixed Max and Min values (hardcoded in the driver)
- BUT a wired potentiometer, according to it's characteristics and components, may not use the full analog range of the A-PAC input. Meaning that digital Min and Max outupt values exported by the A-PAC will be less than the full theorical range, hence the limitations on screen.

This kind of probem is not present with commercial devices (Joypads,etc....) as electrical hrdware is made to use the full range of their software driver.

If the problem is confirmed to be this one, the only solution now is to change a few lines in DemulShooter source  code (according to your own data) and compile it for your own.

Hi and thanks again argonlefou.

Yes, the A-PAC itself is fine and the Y-axis limits are definitely a result of the physical limited up/down restricted range of my two analog guns. I took the Y-axis' potentiometer out and turned it left to right and the cursor reached the top and bottom of the screen. Please see attached photos of the Y-axis limits of both of the guns (please note gun#1 has reversed/inverted inputs). I've also posted a photo showing how short the range is of my gun when pointed up to it's limit. Also, yes, my other commercial devices (Thrustmaster joystick and logitech wheel) both reach the full boundaries correctly.

I will now look into how to edit your source code based on the data.

Thanks so much  :)

You can convert A-pac's D-input interface to X-input interface

Use xoutput    -   https://sourceforge.net/projects/xoutput/

You might have to install ViGEmBus to use xoutput (https://github.com/ViGEm/ViGEmBus/releases)

With this program, you can adjust analog input range.

In demulshooter, choose virtual x-input device.

« Reply #2579 on: September 18, 2020, 09:52:32 am »
Ok guys, I am still having issues.  I can get two guns on the screen when running demul naomi games like HOTD2 and confmiss but the problem is either gun controls both guns at the same time.  I cannot for the life of me get them to separate.  What can I do to get the guns to operate independently?  Thanks again for all of the help.
This means DemulShooter did not hooked the emulator correctly.
Run the demulshooter command by adding a -v at the end, this will create a debug file in demulshooter's folder. You can then share it here

From your log file:

You're not using the correct Demul release

Hi and thanks again argonlefou.

Yes, the A-PAC itself is fine and the Y-axis limits are definitely a result of the physical limited up/down restricted range of my two analog guns. I took the Y-axis' potentiometer out and turned it left to right and the cursor reached the top and bottom of the screen. Please see attached photos of the Y-axis limits of both of the guns (please note gun#1 has reversed/inverted inputs). I've also posted a photo showing how short the range is of my gun when pointed up to it's limit. Also, yes, my other commercial devices (Thrustmaster joystick and logitech wheel) both reach the full boundaries correctly.

I will now look into how to edit your source code based on the data.

Thanks so much  :)
If you want to go down this road, here a couple of advices based on what another user did to solve the same issue :
1) The file to modify is https://github.com/argonlefou/DemulShooter/blob/master/DsCore/RawInput/RawInputController.cs
2) Lines to modify are 140,145,150,155 (forget 140 and 145 if X axis is working full range)
3) I'm joining the modified source code this user did back then, you'll see what to do but you'll have to adapt numerical values with your own, based on your screenshots I'd say:
Gun1 Ymin =  -778, Ymax = 1327
Gun2 Ymin =  -453, Ymax = 1692

Not sure if this has been asked yet, I scrolled back a few pages but couldnít find anything.

Does DS support the Sinden lightgun? Iíll most likely be dumping my Aimtraks for these. Iím sure as they become more available others will too.

Hi, Argon, i'm trying hod3 pc version and i noticed there's some offset when aiming to the left or down, it's not a huge offset though, i've only noticed it now due to having the sinden.
In the debug file i added i am using resolution 1920x1200, but i can confirm that even with the game's original resolutions, the offsets are still there.
When playing without demulshooter and setting the game to mouse mode, there are no offsets, and everything is fine, minus no 2 player support and etc.
According to the debug log, my exe file is unknown, though i've tried every version possible and always got the hash unknown message, but the game works except for the small offsets.
Any chance you could try it too, now that you have the sinden?
For example, when i aim near the left edge the shots are going a bit to the right.

Are you playing full screen or windowed mode or fullscreen with black border on the game ?
How did you set Sinden borders ? full screen or 4/3 ?

Game is running fullscreen, tried original resolutions, 1280x960 and 1280x1024, borders are also fullscreen, meaning they cover exactly the active area, with no dead zones.
I've also tried the game again, this time on my 15khz crt with my crt gun, and the same thing happens, without demulshooter everything's fine, but with demulshooter there's a small offset on the left side and down.
do know that i usually only ask for help after i tried everything i could think of.

Hello! I wanted to ask a question about Aimtraks and Dolphin -

By any chance does anyone have a current working two player setup with Aimtrak/Demulshooter working with Dolphin? If so please let me know what version numbers you are using for your applications.

The last I had seen on this reviewing the thread was that there were issues reported with compatibility noted in the post here from mid-July.

http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,149714.msg1718819.html#msg1718819

I seem to be having the same issue as a few other posters. I am thinking of setting up a separate version of Demulshooter/Dolphin until these issues might be fixed in a later release of Demulshooter once I find out the last versions that work correctly.

Argonlefou - Have you had any additional thoughts on what might be the root cause? Thanks again for your great software.

Argonlefou,

Great work on the Dirty hack on Time Crisis 5 it works perfectly so thank you very much. I know this question has been asked but as the arcade shooter games are slowly drying up would you turn to PlayStation and PlayStation 2.
Iím only asking as PCSX2 supports mouse input and works, however when you use a Aimtrak the sight is all over the screen like it was for Time Crisis 5 so didnít know if a fix could be done using Demulshooter and then the same for PlayStation and maybe PS3 in time. Understand your busy and with this pandemic things arenít easy for everyone but hoping you might consider and take a look into this please.

Thanks a lot for all you do and letting myself and others enjoy these classics as they were meant to be enjoyed and played

Keep up the amazing work

Thank you

Thanks a lot and have it set up myself using nuvee and also Mouse Patcher so Iíve got games that load with or without crosshairs etc. I was asking so you donít have to use those plugins and can just use Demulshooter instead. If itís the best which in my eyes it is why not work across all platforms for lightgun games if possible 👍🏻😊

Well, yeah, agree that it will be better with demulshooter rather than nuvee plugin, just thought you weren't aware of it since you didn't mention it in your post.

There's really no reason for argonlefou to put the time and effort into getting Demulshooter to work with PCSX2. Nuvee already works fine, and you can even use scripts to get games to launch without having to configure the plugin each time (also came from argonlefou). I am not an expert but I cannot tell any difference in the accuracy of nuvee than any other plugin even Demulshooter.

I have heard that nuvee doesn't work with Wiimote though but for other guns it's fine.

You're doing something wrong, aiming should not be all over the place with nuvee.

Nuvee works for PS1 as well. I already have every PS1 and PS2 games working fine with a lightgun. It can be done without Demulshooter, so no need to bother argonlefou with this.  I have another thread for PS3 Move support with scripts too (not saying I created it I did not) so none of this is necessary you just have to learn to use different methods.

Appreciate the reply and I havenít said my sights all over the place with the nuvee plug-in if you read my post 👍🏻 As for learning I do and have and ive also posted a AHK and instructions on getting Time Crisis 5 set up.
In another post Iíve already said I have these set up and working with sights and without in game sights both in PS1 and PS2 using nuvee and also Mouse Patcher as well. So Iím not doing anything wrong either 🙏🏻

But as Iíve said I appreciate your reply and thank you and Iíve seen the work on PS3 light gun games too and well done, I just havenít got onto that system yet but might tap you up in time if thatís ok.
In my eyes thereís no harm in asking Argonlefou if heíll consider this as itíll be great to use Demulshooter across the board on all light gun games and worse case he can only say no lol

In my eyes itís the best light gun addition out there and the work he does is appreciated by myself and others 👍🏻😊

Yup, the question already came but this topic beeing something like....60+ pages long now, I can understand a refresh here and then.

So for RCPS3 the answer is quite simple :
The emulator is under heavy development, with a lot of releases/updates every week (days ? I'm not following the emulator) so it would be more logical to ask original devs to add support rather than trying to hack such a program. Knowing also that every release have high chances of breaking compatibility with any Demulshooter hack...

For PCSX2:
Indeed, Nuvee perfectly does the job (of course, I'm talking of lightguns, not Wiimote or Joypad). And although it needs some learning to be correctly configured, it does work in the end.

And for both emulators : They are emulating console games, not arcade games. This add a lot of issues (like differents versions of the game, US, JAP, EU) needing different hacks and so on....
And so far (except for Dolphin - which is a mistake I won't make again  ;D -  So tricky to hack that I can't even remember how it works) I'll stick to arcade.

Honestly, I forgot about this. I'll see if I can test it with the current release. I did not run Dolphin for ages.....

Hi argon

I am trying to make work teknoparrot house of the dead 4 with 2 sinden lightgun
Using latest demulshooter and updated teknoparrot, hotd4 rom rev A,(also tried rev. c) uncheck usemouse from teknoparrot config
When launched your program and load the game I have an issue when shooting there is about 3-4 seconds lag when I push trigger and when shoot is in the screen. If I play without your software and usemouse checked, no problem with player 1 but player 2 doesn't work.
There is something special with 2 player config that I am missing?

Thanks for create this great program

The only reason I can see easily is if you're running Demulshooter with the -v command. The huge amount of data to write on the disk may cause such lags and delays, accoording to your disk perforance.
If not, I have no clue...

Has anyone encountered using the newest Demulshooter that Sega Golden Gun doesnít seem to work,
no Crosshair on screen and canít even fire or hear shots being fired??

Set up with a previous version of Demulshooter and it works 👍🏻

Can post my versions Iím running later but just thought Iíd post and see if anyone else has encountered this.

Thank you

And Argonlefou totally understand you wanting to stick to arcade games and stay away from console emulators 🙏🏻 Appreciate all you do thank you

Update running:
Teknoparrot ui: 1.0.0.378
Openwin32: 1.0.0.219
Openparrot64: 1.0.0.219
Opensega: 1.0.0.124    Demul 8.8.4 works atm with Sega Golden Gun

Unless Iím doing something wrong but just changing the demul exe from the above to the latest it stops working.

Realise I do need to update Teknoparrot as theyíve been adding some new features and actual light gun profiles as well. Iím just a firm believer in if something ainít broke it doesnít need fixing lol

Thanks again for any help or feedback

Hi Ace,

Try running the game first and then running demulshooter.

I was having the same issue and this worked for me.

No idea why works this way round but it does.

Cheers
Using Wiimotes, Demulshooter and Touchmote as lightguns......does actually work!!!
