Using Nintendo Wiimote with emulators (great for gun games)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


As many of you know, I love on-rail light gun games like The House of the Dead, Time Crisis, Virtual Cop, Haunted Museum and the list goes on.

Unfortunately where I live it is very hard to import light guns from overseas due to the "impersonation of firearms" laws and getting something like those Aimtrak guns through local retailers is rare as hens' teeth!

 

So I have been resorting to pairing the Nintendo Wiimotes with MAME and playing them on my Wii games collection and it does it's job. Nothing like the real Namco Guncons etc but they are good enough but the Wii and MAME only had a handful of worthy gun games to play and I want to now try to pair the Wiimote with Sony Playstation 1, 2 and 3 emulators to access other great light gun game titles but am tried everything and they simply do not work. I have tried using Lilypad, Nuvee, Touchmote and using my Dolphin Infrared Bar and nothing seems to work. I can move the mouse cursor around but the click buttons don't register as mouse clicks so it won't work.

 

My last hope is to ask for your help. If you have managed to pair this with anything besides the Dolphin emulator (Wii/game cube games) and MAME (classic arcade games) with the Dolphin Infrared Bar (stand alone accessory), please share with me and others how you got it to work with step-by-step instructions.

 

To start things off here are how to use the Wiimote to play light gun games on MAME and the Dolphin emulators.
 

Touchmote software (free): http://touchmote.net/

Dolphin infrared bar accessory: https://www.amazon.com.au/Mayflash-W010-Wireless-Sensor-DolphinBar/dp/B00HZWEB74

 

MAME arcade emulator (you need Touchmote software and a Dolphin/Sensor bar standalone software): 
 

 

Dolphin Wii emulator (you need a Dolphin/Sensor bar standalone software): 

 

Using the Touchmote software and utilising the Dolphin Bar IR:

Hi, 

 

Noobiemu on Youtube has made good wiimote tutorials like these one:

 

 

On my spare time, I also tried to make 2 wiimotes working together. 

You will need demulshooter to make all this work together. 

 

Actually, I succeed to play 2 wiimotes perfectly with touchmote but the software is really unstable for me. So, I had looked to another solution and I found winusoft/wiinupro. 

 

I haven't enough time now to explain but I had some trouble to calibrate the wiimote correctly on this software. 

 

But this seem to be a good replacement for touchmote. 

 

If you play with only one wiimote, touchmote seem to work perfectly o. The other hand. 

 

I would like to make tutorial, but first, I need to make the wiimotes to work properly each time I start my pc. Unfortunately, this is not the case yet.

Thanks for the information. I'll definitely look into it. 

But if you have time, please do make a tutorial showing what you did to hook up 1 wiimote to other emulators. I have tried so hard with no luck and only need 1 wiimote is fine.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @sky2310

Hey buddy thanks for this link but I’ve seen it before. Yes it works with this emulator but I’m more keen on Ps 1,2 & 3 emulators. I cannot seem to get the Wiimote to hookup correctly.

Hey buddy, much appreciated but I already tried this plugin with no luck and the posts in that link also talks about not successfully getting it to work also. 

I guess we have to wait until this emulator adds lightguns like MAME. Thanks all the same!

Dolphin bar mode 2 acts as mouse I think but not accurate at all. 

I got the aimtrak gun after and it’s better if you don’t move about. But check out sindenLightgun.com he’s doing a kickstarter and the gun is 100% accurate Any angle or swapping user to use it height etc. I’m going to sign up when I get paid Tuesday. Will be like real thing. Check out the vids and invest money in that

Hi buddy, thanks for the info.

To be quite honest, I quite link the Wiimote/Dolphin Bar setup so not in any rush for anything new although the Sinden idea does sound promising.

 

Have you had any luck pairing the Wiimote with any PlayStation emulators and if so, how did you do it? Mouse mode works ok with Arcade games that uses the mouse and MAME works fine. But I want to play on Ps emulators.

I'm trying to make Wiimote work with PCSX... I can use Wiimouse like lightgun (with my EMS TopGun lightgun bar) but not with Touchmote (unistall it).
What I do:
- Install my bluetooth adapter driver.
- Install ViGEmBus driver from WiimoteHook (Google it and run like Administrator)
- Instal WiinRemote_v2007.1.13 (Google it) This is better than touchmote with too many options, change to IR Sensor on options, enable cursor On/Off to use native cursor
- Install PCSX Emulator
- Follow instructions to install nuvee plugin from here: forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=151385.0
- On step 2: 1) choose DirectInput on HID Mouse API
- Do not follow step 2: 2)

Wiimote Lightgun now work with PCSX, I need more time to calibrate and assign buttons, but that is the way.

Hope someone can join this and help others.

Thanks pal. Sounds good. 

Would you be kind enough to make a short video of this? Would help many people out a lot!

Please, can anyone advise how to set up the Demulshooter to charge the gun off the screen?

 

Nebula M2 emulator

 

House of Te Death
Virtua cop1,2

 

I can't come in long:furax:

 

I use: Demulshoter, Touchmote,


I don't have Aimtrak, just wiimote and sensor bar

 

Charging in other emulators - Demul, supermodel etc, off-screen only works with Nebula M2 emulator - not

 

I found a video but there uses Aimtrak gun and software utility

 

 

Does anyone know how to set it up in Demulshoter?

What I suggest is you map the reload button to the second mouse button and then link that to the top button on the Wiimote. If you have a gunshell for the Wiimote, there will be two triggers - one to shoot and one to reload which works a treat for gun games that require a reload function. If you specifically want to reload by shooting off screen like in the arcade, I'm afraid this is not possible as there are no sensors in the actual gun to allow for this to occur (as far as I know anyway). You just need to use Touchmote and Dolphin Bar on Mode 2 - mouse emulation. 

 

Example of the gunshell type: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/SILVER-Quick-Shot-Plus-light-Gun-Dual-Trigger-BLASTER-for-Nintendo-Wii-MIB-MINT/174065364954?hash=item28871aafda:g:SNQAAOSw63tdqfvR

Thank you for your response;)

 

For charging using (A button on Wiimote)

 

Too bad, Demulshoter doesn't have this feature (reloads off screen):triste:

 

It would be exactly like a passage

 

Thank you

You're welcome buddy! Yeah, the original game allows this because there is a sensor in the actual gun that communicates with the game. The Wiimote/Dolphin Bar setup is great but it only has motion sensors and buttons to rely on. 

Honestly, after a while, I actually prefer using the secondary button to reload especially with the Gun shell mentioned above makes it feel authentic.

Try this out and let me know what you think.

If you have 2 dolphin bars will that solve the problem?
