Did anyone ever get the analog working on this?

I have Confidential Mission Delux that i would like to keep in tact and just replace the naomi with a small pc but havent found anything to make the guns work. jvs-pac just reads digital.

@stickcross yes, it's possible to map keys instead of joystick buttons, as a matter of fact i used them in the first, unpublished, version of JVSy. I switched to joystick emulation because of timing problems, mainly with shift modes.

@magicbyrdman Analog and Lightgun are treated completely differently in the JVS protocol. I'm still interested in implementing both, and, if you're available, I'd like to cook up a special version for you that dumps the lightgun data and allows me to intepret it. You'll have to build the interface though.

On IR2 type gun, it's the same as Analog. As the gun board converts IR sensor position into X/Y Analog.

hello,
First of all thank you for your work, it's amazing!
I could test your invention with analog controls and the result has not been as expected. The cursor does not move, only detects two buttons, if the gun is within the range and the trigger, also had enough lag. there was no way to calibrate. another thing that has caught my attention is that the drivers of a "serial" device are not installed.

Sorry for my English, I am using a translator.
Tell me if you need anything, I would like it to work 100% :awe:

Yop !

I would like to know if this very nice project is still alive.

I've got a pair of seimitsu ls64 and I am about to order what is needed to build the JVSY. I'll be ready then to help you to add the analog support.

JVS-Pac and JVS-strike are currently not available. JVSY is the only solution currently remaining.

Hi Wongy,

Nothing so complicated. Teensy is an arduino like board. You just need to plug it on your usb and use the Arduino IDE to upload your code on its memory.

It's seems there is even an easier way with a Teensy Loader application.
You will find it here : https://www.pjrc.com/teensy/

I didn't try it myself yet because I received the board but not the little chip.

I will try to make a little video of the setup once I receive the stuff and make it work.
