Aimtrak light gun number
« on: September 19, 2018, 08:01:19 pm »
Hi all,

I have been playing around with the Aimtrak light gun and have run into a problem. I will plug the gun in and go to map the buttons in MAME for example. When I do this it's called "Gun 02". Then I might unplug it and the next time I plug it in it won't work. When I got to map the buttons again it's called "Gun 04".

Any idea why it's changing and how to prevent this?

Thanks.

Didn't know what terms to search for so couldn't find much. Thanks for your help anyway, I should be able to find the solution now.

This has got worse since I upgraded to windows 10. Such a pain. Anyone found a solution?
