Retroarch : Lightgun support By WiimpathySep 15, 8, 16 8. Level 9. Joined: Mar 3, Messages: Country:. This is my attempt to have a proper lightgun or at least something at a playable state.
Retroarch lightgun cores If you don't know what this adds, let me explain briefly this feature available in other emulators as well.
With this, the wiimote will act as a pointer in order to play some lightgun compatible games like Duck Hunt. It can also be used as a mouse, possibly for computer ports etc. Some credits goes to netux79 because he started implementing this a long time ago. I've already made some tests so you'll see what's working and the known bugs too. Sorry in advance if all those notes are a bit boring but some details can be useful. Issues with the crosshair not visible.
Use Mame CoreB instead! This is due to how input is handled in Mame it's very complex! It also seems that some games have incomplete lightgun support. I've tried my best to have some games playable or not Reloading is working when wiimote is off-screen. However, you need to point preferably at the top of the screen because the cursor will always reappears there.
Only real 2 simultaneous Zapper game? In retroarch input menu, select Zapper for both wiimotes. First, Credit is not assigned to any button? All accessories are working. Perhaps 1 mouse and 1 Superscope. Emulator's limitation, my bad lightgun implementation?
Is it at least playable this way a on real Snes? This game can be played with 2 mice at the same time. Then open retroarch menu and select mouse for player 1 and MD Menacer for playter 2. ChibiMofoMrSplinter85Tarmfot and 5 others like this. Joined: Apr 13, Messages: 2, Country:.
Curious about using this for jurrasic park arcade. Last edited by cvskidSep 15, Level Joined: Oct 29, Messages: 1, Country:.
When that has finished then you load lr-pcsx-rearmed as usual. Then on the menu under options you can change Pad 1 Type to "guncon". You need a mouse based lightgun like the Aimtrak or a Dolphin bar or my upcoming Sinden Lightgun. There is some guncon adjust settings in the options too. You can use these if the emulator is not putting the shots in the right place.
A good example of this is when you play Die Hard Trilogy. For those of you interested in my project, the Sinden Lightgun Kickstarter is progressing well, I'm really happy with the quality so far but everything is annoyingly taking more time than I was wanting.
I'm working hard to deliver the Kickstarter this year and I'll be able to take new orders then too. You can read my latest update here: Latest public update on Kickstarter.
I've managed to make some further small performance improvements on the Pi since my last video but haven't had the time to do any videos since this last one which shows all the range of Lightgun support that the Pi has or will have soon:. I've got button presses being registered, but no cursor movement so i can't configure the gun. The bar is working as the gun still works fine in mame games. I would like to help you out with some testing, but how would I go about connecting a Guncon lightgun to a Raspberry Pi?
What Playstation game did you test it with? Time Crisis or Point Blank are good as they have a calibration screen to test with when it first loads. Do you have any other devices connected such as a mouse? My implementation is very similar to that.
Mame is quite different. Appreciate your testing. Sorry, this relies on a mouse based lightgun such as Aimtrak, Mayflash Dolphin Bar or in the future Sinden Lightgun acting as the Guncon.
Now that I've added the Lightgun support if someone can add the crosshair as an optional graphic that would be great and I could extend the functionality to mice and the analog gamepad stick too. I've gone through the first 5 or 6 indexes seems like there are endless possibilities but none of them are making a difference.
I found them under Settings, Input, User 1 Binds. Someone is testing with an Aimtrak too and reporting similar issues. The NES emulator is actually called lr-fceumm sorry and is one of the standard emulators. I'll try and get some time with it this evening and give it another go. I find the retroarch menu's very difficult to navigate thus me having problems finding things :. MrLightgun i will see if I can try this with a dolphin bar tonight or tomorrow with time crisis.GitHub is home to over 50 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.

I think I tried all available settings to get mouse input to work. It does not seem to be core-related. No issues with the pointer at all on Android. Is this a known issue, and are there any ways to fix it? Many thanks! Assumed it had been a permissions thing on my machine. Same here, I cannot move the mouse pointer in any core on MacOS.
Tried both touchpad and physical USB mouse. Tried selecting Toggle Mouse Grab, no difference. In the Ozone menu it works fine. I have the same issue. There is no way to get any mouse device working in-game on Mac OS X, neither to move the crosshair nor to fire. As soon as I change Retroarch to a controller input, I can move the controller cursor with Dpad or keyboard arrows.
But mouse movement in-game, I see the crosshair stuck in middle of screen but no movement. No mouse control for anything at all on Mac currently in RA. Thanks for sharing your experience on this issue for Mac users. Seems there is no way to solve this, apart from a future RA update that would address it. Post logs? Sorry for the delayed answer. Attempting to pick a suitable driver.
Requires to run for at least frames. For me this broke no mouse input in DeSmuME in 1. Done a bisect and this seems to be the culprit which would make sense based on the amount of changes within there: 89aUnfortunately those are a bit out of my price range right now. I hope to some day upgrade to something like that… For now, I also have been seeing and reading that some people have gotten their Wii remotes to work as guns, though perhaps not as accurate as the actual light guns.
My understanding is that any light gun, including the Wii remote, basically emulates a mouse input, which in turn emulates the original light gun input.
I see no place in the input options to enable the mouse within an emulator. It also brings up another question, 5 Do ROMs need to be played in full widescreen mode for tracking to work correctly? For Nestopia, make sure you have the NstDatabase. When I tried it in Windows, the cursor was crazy.
Good news all round. I will have to try out my wireless mouse for proof of concept before investing in a gun. I saw you rmention about the crazy Windows cursor on another thread. Big time bummer. But I can understand the issue if it has to use the mouse input. Another question, about real light guns vs. I assume part of the reason is the more fluid gesture motions of the Wii remote vs. But are they actually handled differently?
Do the emulators recognize the difference? How different is their behavior? Like I said, if I can get it to work with the low-end stuff, I might save up for some higher-end stuff. Could two be used and each shot register as a click with cursor location? Or would they compete for control over an unseen cursor on the screen? And lastly, I guess, does anybody know of any mid-range light guns?
When I implemented the mouse support I focused on getting it to work in ScummVM, so there might still be some issues with it not working on other cores. But this is good feedback, so I hope you will let me know how it went, and i will look into it. Thatman84 Dunno, never tried it with any PSX light gun games, though I would assume you would do something similar to bsnes i.
I know bsnes does. Maybe someone has some better ideas on how to handle mouse button clicks when using the touch pad. I will try and test them on my tablet over the weekend. I take it I need the latest nightly and updated cores?
I was extremely hopeful when I tested Nestopia and bsnes with only my mouse, as the mouse tracking was smooth and accurate. Since the Wii controller just acts as a mouse, it should yield the same results, right? Nestopia — Great, easy support.Spinners and Trackballs appear on the control panels of many arcade classics.
Lightguns were common accessories for both arcade and console games.
Although RetroPie is often able to accommodate the use of a joystick instead, many popular titles are best played with their native controls. Spinners, Trackballs, and Lightguns are often described together because they are seen as mouse devices by the operating system.
Spinners operate by rotating a spindle which turns an encoder wheel. Optical sensors detect the movement of the encoder wheel and forward the speed and rotational direction to the arcade game. Trackballs are essentially the same but they have two spindles oriented perpendicular to one another. By rolling a ball that is in direct contact with the spindles, trackballs can provide two-dimensional input like a mouse.
Because mouse input is ubiquitous on modern computers, spinners and trackballs translate nicely to emulators that can accept input from a mouse. For trackballs, the input is practically identical to a mouse. Spinners can also be setup like a mouse with separate X and Y tracking like an Etch-a-Sketch. Attaching a trackball or spinners requires a USB interface. Fortunately, arcade hardware is available that will work, and often comes with or is compatible with a USB interface.
The key to making this hardware work on the Raspberry Pi is to ensure that the interface behaves like a USB mouse. A convenient hardware test is to simply boot the Pi to a desktop and see if you can move the cursor with your trackball or spinner. This can also help you troubleshoot the connections for X and Y inputs.
If you have movement, you should be able to configure MAME to use it. Another test can be performed at the command prompt. Now, rotate your spinner or move your trackball.
It should produce characters on the screen and move the cursor from side to side on the line. Depending on other devices you have attached, Linux might see more than one USB mouse at the same time. Input Drivers : As of Septemberthere is only one RetroArch input driver for Linux with support for multi-mouse: udev. In this example, there are two lightgun devices attached, along with a keyboard-style arcade control panel. To use both lightguns, the correct mouse indexes to use would be 0 and 2.
Beware : The index of a specific device may change depending on what device you have attached to which port. For example, if you boot with an external mouse, it might be detected by udev as event0 and your spinner as event1but if you boot the same system without the external mouse attached, everything might ratchet down spinner becomes event0. For each user and mouse you wish to configure, visit the corresponding RetroArch user 'binds' screen and set Mouse Index to match the indexes discovered earlier.You have to find ways to do things differently.
But the market for shorter digital videos (aka web series) are only being acquired by Facebook, YouTube Red, and Go90. It appears that longer-form content is king for the time being. Read the article here. The first step is to admit and accept the scary truth that the long-established operating model of internal teams and agency partners is antiquated and far too reliant on personal observations from insulated teams in big-city offices.

Influencer Marketing is a hot topic that many marketers are exploring, testing and iterating. This article in Forbes highlights a number of guesstimates from various internet influencers and industry experts for the 2018 trends. Our takeaway: Brands are still hesitant, creators are still hungry.
Pricing is still all over the place. Reach is hard to quantify. A YouTube view does not equal a Facebook view which does not equal an impression. Brands that integrate influencers into their original content have had success in 2017. As those case studies surface, we will hopefully see more companies experiment with new things.
With many people choosing to watch premium, long-form video content on a TV screen, a new range of possibilities is available for advertisers. Any video advertising campaign that lacks OTT storytelling risks missing out on a critical opportunity and may even be perceived as irrelevant. They are fantastic storytelling, beautifully shot and authentic original content. I recommend 120 Days: Tarpon Season.
