Hi everyone, sorry if this has been asked before but I couldn't find this on the forum or FAQs.

Can CCS64 emulate the use of a lightgun using one of the available input methods (mouse, joystick or keys)? I recently got hold of the Blaze Out compilation tape image, which was originally bundled in a C64C pack with the Defender light gun. Despite my best efforts I've been unable to play the compilation, or even get past the title screen, as it requires a pull of the lightgun trigger. None of the existing options seem to cover this.

Can someone advise me if this is even possible?

CCS64 emulates keyboard (using key-set configurations), joystick (again, using key-set configurations, or using a physical joystick connected with appropriate driver), and some elements of mouse emulation. As far as I know, no C64 emulator emulates a light-gun device. Please refer to the HTML instruction, which come as part of the CCS64 Package, and also to: ... b_help.htm

Kind regards,

Stuart Toomer.

The light gu device will need to be emulated. this is traditionally done with a mouse.

That said, if there is a light PEN emulation, try using it.

Both work on the same principle. Here is how it works for guns

When the trigger is pulled, a bit is set on the port. This tells the game to white the screen. when the photosensor detects the light from the raster beam, it trips a second bit on the controller port, and the program detects this. It then knows, by it's internal timing loops, where the raster beam is, and corrects for the length of time it takes to read the position.
