Cannot find the Discord server of the project (I am quite noob with Discord). @JayBee can you share a direct link? Thank you in advance.

*2021/02/07 - GUI 1.26beta - FW2.62

In this update I mainly modified the way the offscreen reload and screen content mode work.

Previously, you could only switch between full screen or 4:3, but now you can switch between fullscreen and a user defined aspect ratio. You can change this aspect ratio either from the GUI (to save in eeprom) or from a serial command (for per game setup). Everything on that new mode is written in the guide and the GUI.

Now when offscreen is in "Disabled", you can't fire offscreen (other buttons still work offscreen of course), and a 4th mode "Normal Shot" was added if you want to be able to shot offscreen without reloading.

User Guide:
- Corrected and modified various data
- Added all the previously undocumented serial commands, now you can modify most of the gun aspects through serial

GUI:
- updated to support the new modes

Firmware:
- updated to support the new modes
- fixed the gamepad buttons issue
- removed the gamepad mode dpad to save space (dpad now works as normal buttons, allowing to use it for something else)
- fixed an issue when changing modes through combo would keep some buttons hold
- better combo button switching, now just pushing the mode+button combo should always switch to the correct mode, no need to do them in a specific order
- slightly increased the mode button and trigger button debounce (20ms)

First of all, hello to everybody.
I'd like to thank all of the passionate people here trying to revive all those childhood memories.
I'm about to drop a few bucks, but I'd like to know if the games are two player compatible.
I'm seeing that it emulates a mouse, but connecting two mice doesn't allow me to play.
How this can be solved?
Thank you again for this impressive work.
Cheers.

It depends on what you want to use, if it's MAME, you just need to activate multi mice support.

There are 2 modes that you can easily switch between with the gun, the first is of course mice, which is supported by many emulators and games with raw mouse input (sometime through the Demulshooter app), and the second mode is joystick, which is basically using a controller X and Y axis and buttons instead of the mouse and keyboard  ;D

Thank you for the info.
I'm reading about RawInput and Demulshooter.
I guess I'll order a DFRobot camera soon.
Cheers!



EDIT: Have anybody tried to cram the Gun4IR inside a Gun-con 2 controller? (NPC-106).
I'm considering purchasing this instead the original GunCon because the D-Pad, which brings another question
Is the D-Pad really that needed for lightgun games?
Is there any list which contains mandatory D-Pad for lightgun games? That way I can avoid making the nunchuck mod.
Thank you.

Yes I did a gcon2 mod, it's not super easy to mod, but not the worse either. I even managed to fit all feedbacks in it, like a mini solenoid, rumble motor and rgb led for notifications  :lol
You can find more info on it in my discord server if you want (the link in the first post).

To be honest a dpad on a gun is quite useless for in-game stuff, and is required only on some rare ps2 games, and maybe wii games but those aren't really lightgun games.
I mostly use my dpad to scroll in menus from my sofa without having to go back to my pc.

If D-Pad in game is not usually needed, I think I'll get the original PSX Gun-Gon, as I like it more and the trigger microswitch mod looks more sturdy than the one on the Gun-con 2.
I'll check the discord.
Cheers!
