So I just installed a new install on GameEx. Seemed to be working ok. I have always had problems with attract mode, but this time I think I worked out all my codec problems. Then all of a sudden, I start getting crashes in attract mode... For the life of me I couldn't figure out why.. I started doing some research. I found a post from a person who had an issue with crashes after they plugged in a gamepad. I didn't, but it dawned on me that I did plug in a light gun recently (the gun emulates a mouse). I unplugged it and my problem went away. I tested this a few times by plugging in and unplugging the gun.. It does seem to be the issue. I did try what the gamepad person did as a resolution... I turned off the initialization of gamepads... it solved the problem! Anyone have a clue why that would help a crash in attract mode?
I recently read a www.eHow.com article about how to make your ps3 controller work on your computer and then in MAME. http://www.ehow.com/how_5549681_use-ps-controller-mame.html if you're interested. Anyways, I really want to have some light guns for my MAME cabinet. I really like the aimtrack ones over at www.ulitmarc.com, but they are $95. I'm wondering if anyone knows of an old USB gun system that might work in MAME. I have an LCD TV monitor in my cabinet, so it would have to be LCD friendly. I think I might eventually go the aimtrack route, but I'd like a cheaper option in the meantime. Basically, see how much I actually use the things before I pay $200+ shipping for a pair of them. I also still need a spinner on my panel, so I figure I'll combine the order and save on shipping. It'll run me like $400 if I add the wheel attachment too. Argh!
