So if I just swap out the US Cloverleaf C5 connector cable for a UK power outlet one I should be good to go?

The suspected Cloverleaf C5 is in this photo that you posted.

I can't tell if this power supply that Andy links to uses an IEC or Cloverleaf C5 cord.   :dunno

This power supply will work for you.  The only question is which type of cord you'll need.
- If it's an IEC cord, you'll need the one in the pic you posted earlier.

- If it's a Cloverleaf C5, you'll need one like this.

Cheers Scott, nice one. I'm going to order the PSU from the eBay dude in the US and just wait and see what type of cable it is when it arrives. Thanks again for your help!  :cheers:

Hey guys,
I have these guns.. was wondering is there a way to get them to recoil constantly if you hold down the trigger?
I also have the sindens, but as much as I wanted to love them.. just donít like the entire setup process, white borders, and the weak recoil due to it playing off a usb.

I almost want to see if I can put the aimtrak internals inside the sindens and keep the dpad etc..lol

Anyways let me know if anyone one has done so for the aimtrak continuous recoil.

MrThunderwing:
Welp, got the gun in the post earlier in the week and have finally had a chance to set it up and have a play around with it today. Pretty happy with it all-in-all, although couldn't get everything to play nice with it. After a bit of configuring and calibrating, Supermodel, Model 2 emulator and MAME all work OK. House of the Dead Scarlet Dawn also works great, so that's pretty awesome.

Time Crisis 5 doesn't want to cooperate. Has always played OK with my mouse, but the cursor goes haywire with the gun. There's a lengthy thread on another forum where in the first couple of pages people mentioned about the cursor being way too overly sensitive in it with Aimtraks. I haven't made it to the end yet of that long thread yet to see if there's a fix. Light gun games in Teknoparrot sort of work, but the only button input they register is the left button on the side of the gun (which comes up as right button on the TeknoparrotUI when I try to configure the gun). If I press the trigger it still comes up as 'right button', but in game it'd only the actual left button that does anything. I noticed MAME was also not registering all the buttons as individual inputs, so for games with more than 2 buttons, I had to use a keyboard input.

I'm aware of DEMULShooter, but I know nothing about it, wondering if it might fix some of these issues. I've got the old PC version of House of the Dead 2, which I haven't tried in years - the game keeps opening in the wrong monitor (a much smaller one to the side of my main display) on my dual screen set-up, which is most vexatious. I tried turning the desktop back to single screen, but then the game doesn't start at all - it mustn't like the resolution or summat. I wonder if it might be easier to just try the actual Naomi version in DEMUL. Oooooh, I've just remebered about Virtua Cop 3 on CXBXR - I've only ever played that with a joypad, but I think there's an option for mouses (mice..?) now.

If you find a solution to this please pass it on. I'm still waiting on the PSU to arrive to test the recoil.

Edit: OK, just got the Naomi arcade version of House of the Dead 2 working in DEMUL along with Confidential Mission and Maze of the Kings. Trying to get Ninja Assault working but for some reason no controls work in it. Also got Aliens Extermination working too now in it's standalone launcher. All the buttons work properly this way, so that beats playing it in Teknoparrot. Was able to get the Aimtrak working with Virtua Cop 3 in CXBXR too, but was having the same issue of only one button working. I suddenly remembered though that I can swap the buttons around in the Aimtrak config, so I've been able to at least make that one working button the trigger, rather than one on the side.

MrThunderwing:
The power supply turned up today. It was actually a slightly different connector for the plug, one with just two holes (don't know the name of it). Fortunately I had a spare one from an old camera I don't use anymore. Anyway, plugged it in and everything works perfectly, recoil on the gun doing what it's supposed to and my house didn't explode, so bonus! Thanks again for all your help with this Scott, it's been greatly appreciated!  :cheers:
