can you not add a button on the gun like the arcadeguns mini button, it is much better as a reload button in time crisis than having it at the side.

Newly registered because of GUN4IR, and I want to build one!  With the extreme parts shortage of DFrobot SEN0158, I just wanted to make sure before I start buying parts.  Does GUN4IR work with Wiimote IR camera?  I read in the thread that it does but I also read that Wiimote is not an absolute position sensor so it won't work? The Wiimote camera also looks a lot different than the SEN0158, it looks more like a traditional webcam based on an instructable build here https://www.instructables.com/Wii-Remote-IR-Camera-Hack/

RetroRon:
The original Wii remote IR camera is an absolute positioning sensor capable of tracking 4 infrared points. Most will tell you that the SEN0158 uses cameras salvaged from Wii remotes.

Thanks for the reply. I've begun ordering parts.  The Wii Remotes are like $3 on ebay for "parts". It might be a cheaper option even if SEN0158 comes back in stock.


Anyone know if this crystal will work on the Wii Camera?  https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3256804229927403.html

*edit* for future references, I ordered https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2251832824182546.html that is suggested as known to work.

Element14 won't have the SEN0158 again until July 2023 according to their site. That's over a year you'd be waiting. History of general availability shows stock every 6 or so months, and they're sold out in less than 30 days. The best reason to get a SEN0158 is its barrel shape, and can get an adapter for the wide lense. But the Wiimote sensors are cheaper for sure. You'll just need to mount with a little bit more effort. I wouldn't wait a year for a SEN0158 though, that's insane.

I purchased the board kits from rpegelectronics.com. I have Aimtrak-modded Namco knockoffs (the "Named" guns), but am just so disappointed in their accuracy as it doesn't really like movement... Finally decided to try GUN4IR and will mod those in instead.

This place says hat they will have some in October. Never used them though..
