Please help me understand Demulshooter for mouse input! :(

Recommended Posts

Really want to figure out how to play The Maze of the Kings for my bday today, been trying to figure it out for hours..
Redream does not support it, NullDc has no mouse support

So I went for Demul which runs it, and people online say to set up mouse as ligrthgun you just change the setting on Maple to “Ligthgun” but I am not getting any input from the mouse…

So next I see people everywhere saying Demulshooter helps add mouse support to games but it is so confusing…

On Windows 10, I made a shortcut to Demulshooter adding the command line -target=demul07a -rom=mok after target location
I run that as administrator and it added an icon to my system tray.. so I figured I got it right, I run the emulator and rom and then….

Nothing, still no mouse input….

What have I done wrong? I would really appreciate it if someone could give me a little help here…

I was gonna give up and just play it with controller… but the game does not have crosshair in the actual gameplay lol… its like no matter what I try with this game I am screwed….

I am fairly certain Demulshooter is meant for actual lightguns only not a mouse. 

 

If you look for Flycast standalone (or if you prefer, use it in Retroarch) it has built in mouse support and it works with Naomi games such as Maze of the Kings.  No Demulshooter or additional scripts are needed.

Gonna give Flycast a shot, allthough in some of the posts I read they said emulation on Flycast for Naomi game was really bad, they were older posts tho so gonna try anyways...got nothing to loose, everyone is saying Demul is supossed to work with mouse without changing anything but it doesnt for me...anyways thanks for the clarification that DemulShooter is just for ligthguns

That's not true Flycast is very good for Naomi it's just very picky about bios and you have to make sure you put the chd in a folder to match the name of the game. 

 

Does this list look it it's bad? https://github.com/libretro/flycast/issues/136

Thats the thing... for The Maze of King, the only thing I can find for it anywhere online is a .dat file... just read that Flycast supports it, so hopefully it works

Woah thanks for the link! Will really help not just for that game. The Flycast guide says I still need the matching rom tho.. I tried using the one from the mame 0226 set but didnt work >_<

With the .dat file I was running it as an "encrypted rom" but doesnt look like Flycast has that option

The matching roms are in the link, you need to download the .zip and the chd for each game you want (although a few don't have a chd) 

LOL yeah im so dumb, didnt realize the rom was in the same link... cheers!

@JustinCredible81 Holy @#$%!!! Using the proper .chd and rom that you linked me, instead of the decrypted rom I was using... now lets me play the game perfectly with mouse! That was the issue all along!

Thank you so much bro! Im happy AF that finally figured it out!!!

Well I learned something new myself I didn't know a different format would make a difference in using a mouse or not. 

Yeah this .dat format was weird because Demul was set to select auto bios, but sometimes it would fail to identify the correct one, making it so the rom would not run. Had to keep trying to run the game over and over until Demul will randomly identify the right bios, or manually change the correct bios for that one game... So Im guessing the .dat format also confused Demul so it didnt know it was a ligthgun game, and that was the problem. Just played the whole game with the chd you provided and game runs flawlessly :)
