The Act LabsTM Light Gun Compatibility Patch
How to use the Troubleshooter
IMPORTANT: If you have a pre 2.0 version of the Troubleshooter (DirectInputShim) installed, you must remove it, as it will conflict with the new version. To remove the old version, delete the "fake" dinput.dll and DirectInputShim.ini files from your games' EXE folders. (Do NOT delete the real dinput.dll file from your Windows System folder!) If you're not sure you want to delete the old version, you can simply disable it by renaming the fake dinput.dll to something else.
After installing The Troubleshooter, there will be a new Light Guns icon in the Windows Control Panel.
Double clicking on this icon will bring up the Troubleshooter Configuration window:
In the Light Guns tab, you must specify the number and type of light guns you have.
If you specify Dual PC USB Light Guns, you must then select which devices you want to use for Player 1 and Player 2, as in the following Windows XP screen shot:
The Device Selection lists may show other mouse devices besides the Act Labs guns, but the Troubleshooter will probably not work with non-absolute devices.
For any configuration other than Dual Act Labs PC USB Light Guns, the device selection is automatic, and these lists will be disabled.
The Enable and Disable buttons will enable or disable the Troubleshooter.
The Games Tab
The Games tab lists the supported games, and lets you configure the game-specific options.
