Custom PC Lightgun With PS3Eye(software download)
« on: August 05, 2019, 04:45:27 am »
Hi,I am the author of this video.
My english is bad,I have to use Google Translate :P
Today,I share this lightgun software ;D

===============

CamerXY.exe (This is the program used in my video.)
https://mega.nz/#!wC4zDabI!p0lOpFZ_GRJJJNHexgL4oyDYZazeHRZ0HWXtfOelDaI

Connect the PS3 camera, open cameraXY, press TAB to set the Gain and Exposure so that it can see the display,  mark it at the four corners of the display, then dim the Gain and Exposure, press space, use the laser to light the display to see the spot and no other light source on the display. Finally press ESC and you will see the mouse move with the laser.

My english is bad,so you can read this pdf(Use Google Translate :lol)
电脑光枪设置教程v1.09.pdf
https://mega.nz/#!lW5FFaqA!gCzclwCgA3YDu5uqqhO430Ub2QCb6lH6eiKRqWvRZxQ

===============
PcSx2MPv1.01.exe (I use it to play Crisis zone )
https://mega.nz/#!FHhg0YQI!-BRglYwksKiKa9XDyM_SZUNWU1uiyIMJtX4vEsEwTzw
suopport:
Time crisis2(SLUS_202.19)
Time crisis3(SCAJ_200.60)
Crisis zone(SCES_525.30)
Virtua Cop Re-Birth(SLPM_622.05)
Ninja Assault(SLPS_202.18)
Vampire Night(SLUS_202.21)
Silent Scope 1(SLES_500.37)
Silent Scope 2 - Fatal Judgement(SLES_502.84)

It has a little lag, If someone can change iso and hide the cross, lag will be not obvious,Especially Crisi zone :D

================
This lightgun system can't play ps2 nuvee plugin and Mame, So I use PPJoy with mouse, then my lightgun can play with nuvee,But it is unstable, the mouse will move quickly in a small range  :'(  ,I hope someone can solve it  :laugh:

I also use PPJoy play mame,set lightgun is joystick, It can be played, but it is not accurate at all. Wiimote can use Touchmote set it as a xbox controller,then It can run mame perfectly, So I think maybe something can Simulate the mouse as xinput?

This is how the bootleg China Time Crisis 4 cabinets are setup, I had the pleasure of fixing one for a client  :banghead:

I wondered about those bootleg TC4 arcade kits they sell on Chinese import sites. I thought they might use a modified PS3. Is it just a PC running an emulator under the hood?

It was running 2x ps3 with time crisis 4 retail disc, they both connected into a ioboard including the video which would then overlay the credit and time screens and also removes the boot logos and playstation logos etc. It was a twin cabinet but you could not play each other, its was not that sophisticated.

That's disappointing (but not that surprising). I've been working on a project to play two-player Time Crisis 4 on the PS3 on two separate screens like the arcade. Obviously there is no link option like on TC3 and TC2. It only has a split screen option. My project involved a video wall 1x1 splitter to put one image across two screen like Windows extended desktop mode. Then some Extron scalers to manipulate the image to make it fill two 4:3 screens. I was hoping the Chinese had create a device to make all that simpler (given the high price they charge for their TC4 kits).

I find it odd that they would go to the trouble of creating new gun tech instead of just putting a Guncon3 in their gun shells. The laser pointer thing wouldn't even work on my LG Oled Tv. They have an insane anti-reflective coating and I couldn't see the red or green dot lasers I tried at all. The Guncon 3 works as well as the TC4 arcade guns (although they are harder to calibrate right).

I ended up removing all the junk hardware including the guns, cameras and IO board, downsizing to a single screen and running 2 Namco guns via the ps3. It was a home user machine and the new owner was happy to be able to play a number of different titles on the unit. Would be great to see twin guns work on twin machines with a 2 player link

If you removed the Chinese guns, did the user end up using regular guncon3's. That's one expensive PS3 setup...

There is no possibility of link play without either modifying the code or buying real Namco 256 hardware unfortunately. I did find two viable options for two players on two separate full screens though. One is to use a vga splitter to put one (identical) image on two screens. Then using a pair of Extron scalers to manipulate each side to make each players half of the split-screen fill their 4:3 monitor.

The other option is a video-wall processor. Both options start at around $200-$250 on ebay.

I guess a 3rd option is using a PS3 emulator on a PC. Then you could use Nvidia Mosaic with Quadro drivers to get video wall-like functionality.

You could use Time Crisis 4 arcade guns on a PS3 with a simple pad hack. I just invested in a Sega type 2 gun set-up which uses the same hardware as TC4 arcade. I plan to use it with my PC, PS3 and a 128mb modded Xbox (for Chihiro shooting games).

I remember the gun you use was on TaoBao but now it's gone, is there another site to buy the gun?
