Hey guys,
Hopefully someone can help with this issue.. in short.. I can shoot and reload with the aimtrak gun but cannot move.. I have to use the mouse pad to move and the gun to shoot.. not sure why as the aimtrak gun acts like a mouse, but for whatever reason it just doesn't move.. it works with other shooters like HOD2 and 3.. anything I am missing here?

Thanks in advance!

Did you check your mame settings?

Did you contact Andy from Ultimarc?

I have no idea but I hope you fix the issue. Let us know in case someone else stumbles on the same issue.

Did you got this one solved? I have the very same problem with the aimtrak working perfectly in menus but in-game for shooting and reload, cant move the crosshair, only witht the mouse itself. And this is not a MAME title but the Big Buck Hunter Arcade for PC  :laugh:

Any help appreciated

Never tried this one, But do you have a regular mouse plugged in?

I just wonder if it defaults to the 1st mouse?

Does it have a multi mouse setting??

Hmm.. I just have a BT keyboard + mouse-combo. No multimouse to switch on. It should have raw mouse option like "Blue Estate" has.

Strange thing is that all the menu control works flawlessly with both mouse and Aimtrak but well in the shooting mode, only mouse works for aiming :(

Just had another random thought...

Is your AT set up to emulate a joystick instead of a mouse in the AT utility?

Yeah! Strange indeed!

Works like a charm until you get into the shooting part of the game.
Checked and I do have the aimtrak util setup to act as mouse

Took a video of the problem here

Just for shits and giggles try dissconecting your kb/mouse combo so it only has the AT as a mouse device.

That should then rule out if its a 1 mouse/conflict type issue.

hehe had to try just in case but same results sadly :(
Read on the steampage that they did not have support for raw input, so I guess that's why, but strange as you can shoot just fine within the menus.

I was just reading up on it to.

Apparently the game is full of stupid bugs, glitches and missed opportunities!

Maybe worth playing the original on MAME instead?

You have to set it up in multiple places to make it work sometimes.

Make sure you enable the dual mouse option in mame. Then choose the input option in the INI (try it as a mouse first and then a lightgun if that doesn't work). Then, in the individual game controls, make sure it is set to use either first or second mouse (depending on which it thinks the aimtrak is).

You should also try switching the USB ports and unplugging any other analog controls. Mame seems to get confused sometimes when too many controllers are connected at the same time. My joystick and Aimtrak stop working when my Logitech racing wheel is connected for reasons I don't fully understand. It just decides that the d-pad on the wheel should replace the joystick controls I set up....

If all that fails, start again with a different version of mame.
