New guy asking for some guidance
« on: February 12, 2019, 07:48:35 pm »
Hi, I used to play a lot of Roms, stopped about 14 years ago (first kid), but the switch and it's free retrogaming had me hooked again.

I am planning to build an arcade cabinet with light-guns (I still own 2 Guncon 2 and 1 Guncon). ATM I do own a Raspberry Pi B+, a few old PC and a CRT TV.
In other terms I am equipped to go in most directions, but I would like to use what I have.

I am posting this because I did a lot of research and found a lot of different info about Guncon and some time I am even unsure if it'S for PC, Raspberry Pi or anything else.

So far:

Does anyone have a link about how to use such light guns from beginning to the end?

Thank you

Nylkos

I tested with Demul and some dreamcast games that I already own.

Sadly and strangely, in both case, the cursor is in the right spot (where I am aiming), but I when I shoot it hit a few cm to the left...
Anyone wknos how to fix this issue?

So are you using a EMS TopGun?
If I had only one wish, it would be for three more wishes.

No, I am using a Windows 10 driver made from a forum member, the link is in my first post.

Like mentionned the issue that I have is the cursor is well calibrated, but when I shoot it doesn't shoot on the cursor, it shoots a few cm to it's left...
