Invasion - The Abductors (MAME) Gun Reload issues
« on: November 04, 2017, 01:13:09 pm »
Hello,

I was playing this game and noticed how hard it is to reload.  If you're player 1 you have to shoot right in the right top corner (in a very specific spot) to reload and player 2 has to shoot in the bottom right corner to reload.  It's a little annoying.  I tried the cheat for infinite ammo and it didn't work:(.  Anyway, anyone have any ideas on how to fix that or make it easier to reload?  Thanks

I actually submitted this to MAME testers a few days ago. Hopefully someone takes a look at it.

There are two reasons to this problem.

1. Gun mark isn't fully center the mark is slightly to the left of the cursor which doesn't make much sense to me because only up and left should be an offscreen reload in theory.

2. The fact Midway didn't include a gun calibration setting in the test menu isn't a good idea. It would be difficult to find a balance that is unless this game can use the quick offscreen reload setting that would involve remapping button 2.

I use a bit of a work-around for easier reloading with Invasion. It's not perfect but makes it playable.

You need to set your controls up in the in-game TAB menu like shown in the 2 pics. Adjust the config to how your trigger and gun reload/button 2/off-screen reload is setup. For eg...

P1 Button 1 = Gun 1 Trigger or Gun 1 Reload
Lightgun X Analog Inc = Gun 1 Reload Button

P2 Button 1 = Gun 2 Trigger or Gun 2 Reload
Lightgun X 2 Analog Inc = Gun 2 Reload Button

Basically, the reload sweet-spot is all down the right hand side of the screen. When you press reload/shoot off screen the adjusted settings send the crosshair to the edge of the right hand side of the screen instantly. You then need to press reload/shoot off screen again to reload.
So to reload you need to press reload/shoot off screen twice.
