I fired up Die Hard Trilogy on the Pi this week as well and to be honest I forgot how much fun this game is. I guess it has been 20 years since I last played it!
A few details:
I’m using a patched version of PCSX-Rearmed that added Guncon support, planning to publish in June.
I’m using a patched ISO that adds Guncon support to the game.
I’m using a cheat that removes the screen flash of the firing lightgun.
I’ve had a few comments regarding input lag, this is caused by emulator delay (it is a raspberry pi after all) but secondly as I have turned off CRT screen flash there is an extra frame of delay before it shows input as normally the next frame would be a white flash so you get the visual feedback 1 frame earlier. You can add that back in so you get that visual feedback sooner and more aligned with the click but like I say as you don’t notice is when you are playing, I like to remove the screen flash as a personal preference. The way my audio is recorded the trigger click dominates which doesn’t help, when you are playing yourself the TV sound would normally dominate.
The emulators run that much faster on the PC that it is not a problem on the PC.
I know it does frustrate some of the project followers that I do so many Pi videos as some of the emulator slowness can be mistaken for Sinden Lightgun slowness however I really enjoy pushing the Pi to the max and getting new games to work. I am also working on getting new lightgun games to work on the PC when I get opportunities.
