Once downloaded, run the `SetupE6WildWest.exe’ file and follow the onscreen instructions.PERFORMANCE RECOMMENDATIONTo increase the speed of the crosshairs and gun tracking, you are encouraged to increase the “Cursor Speed” in Windows to the highest settings1) In Windows 10, go to Settings > Devices > Mouse2) Set the cursor speed to maximum (20)
STARTING THE GAME
STARTING THE GAME FOR THE FIRST TIMEIMPORTANT: Before launching the game, the LightGun must be connected to a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port on your computer.The first time you start the game, you will need to calibrate the LightGun with the one-time calibration tool.IMPORTANT: During the first few steps of the calibration process, you will need to interact with items onscreen using touch, the keyboard or a mouse. The LightGun also functions like a mouse, so it will interfere with your actions. To avoid this interference, you will need to block the gun sensor, either with your hand or by placing a cloth over it until the first few steps of the calibration are completed.3
ADJUSTING THE PROJECTED IMAGEThe tracking system requires a white border around the image projected onscreen. You may need to adjust your projected image to ensure it fits inside the edges of the physical screen. Use the arrows and corners on this screen for reference.Once all four corners fit inside the screen, click PROCEED. NOTE: The projected image can be smaller than the screen, provided the white border remains visible at all times.4
CALCULATING THE IDEAL STANDING POSITIONThe ideal position to shoot from is farther from the screen than the standard “tee position” for golfing. If you have a TruGolf Vista simulator, there are presets available that will auto-fill the “simulator height” field. If you have a custom simulator or setup, you need to measure the projected image’s height, and then enter the measurement manually using your keyboard and mouse.Once the screen height is entered, press the CALCULATE button.
SCOPE ALIGNMENT Make sure the LightGun’s crosshairs are aligned to the iron sights by looking down the sights with one eye. It should appear like this:RESPONSIVENESS As you move the LightGun’s crosshairs around the screen, they should move quickly and smoothly, not jump around the screen.ASSESSMENT SCREENOnce you have destroyed all nine targets, you will be asked to assess your experience.
In this example, the calculation recommends a standing position of 15 feet from the screen. You may want to mark this position on the floor with tape for future reference. When this step is complete, click PROCEED.TESTING YOUR LIGHTGUN CALIBRATIONTo confirm that your LightGun is correctly calibrated, carefully aim and shoot at each of the nine targets. Correct calibration is determined by two factors: Scope Alignment and Responsiveness.
· If no changes are needed, click YES, WORKS WELL. This completes the calibration process and takes you into the game.· If changes are needed, click NO, NEEDS WORK. This will take you to the next steps of the calibration process.
ADJUSTING THE SCOPE ALIGNMENTFollowing the on-screen instructions, press and hold the left directional arrow on the LightGun’s controls for three seconds.After holding the left arrow for 3 seconds, the crosshairs will lock to the center of the screen.
When the sights are aligned, shoot the gun. This will align the scope correctly.NOTE: This process can be repeated as many times as you’d like until you are satisfied with the alignment.When finished, click PROCEED.CALIBRATING FOR DIFFERENT LIGHTING CONDITIONSThe tracking system can be affected by lighting conditions, which fall into two categories:· Dark Environment: Very little light surrounding the simulator booth/ area. This is typical for most home installations· Bright Environment: Other light sources surrounding the simulator booth/area. This is most common with commercial facility installations
With the crosshairs locked to the center of the screen, point the LightGun at the crosshairs and look down the sights with one eye. Align your sights so it looks like this:
On this screen, you may shoot/select the lighting environment that best describes your simulator setup.NOTE: The “Dark Environment” setting is preferable. However, if you find that tracking is inconsistent or performs poorly, you may need to re-run the calibration tool and select “Bright Environment”.
PROJECTOR BRIGHTNESS CALIBRATIONProjectors’ images have a wide range of brightness. To determine the brightness of your projector, the LightGun will now function as a Light Meter.
CALIBRATION COMPLETE AND SUMMARY SCREEN
When you click PROCEED, a white screen appears. Keep your LightGun pointed at the screen for the duration of a 10-second countdown, while it measures the screen brightness.
After measuring the Screen Brightness, the calibration is complete. NOTE: It may take up to 10 seconds for the crosshairs to re-engage on this screen.To finish the calibration process, shoot/click FINISH.

· Gunslinger : The outlaw is slow to draw
· Town Sheriff : The outlaw draws with average speed
· Ragin’ Inferno
: The outlaw is very fast with their quick-draw
PLAYING HIGH NOONWhen High Noon starts, the outlaw challenges you. You can then shoot/ click TUTORIAL for an overview of how High Noon works, or shoot/click READY to start the showdown.
High noon is a one-on-one quick-draw game. Face off against one of three outlaws to see who is the fastest gun in the west!After selecting the High Noon Stage, you select which outlaw you want to draw against.
RULES · Both you and your opponent have three lives · Whoever loses all three lives first, loses the showdown · You get one shot per round
There is an outlaw for each difficulty level: · Easy (Dalton Cain, The Deacon) has largest hit areas · Medium (Will Sharpes, Diamondback Jack) has standard-size hit areas · Hard (Grim Jim, The Deathslinger) has very small hit areas
IMPORTANT! When you shoot/click READY to start the showdown, you must immediately lower your gun so it is NOT pointed at the screen.
· Next, you must wait until your opponent draws first · When your opponent starts to move, you can draw · To shoot, raise the gun from your hip and fire at your opponent
POSSIBLE OUTCOMES· Draw too early (before your opponent draws) – You get shot and lose a life· Accurately shoot your opponent before he shoots you – Your opponent loses a life· Shoot, but miss your opponent – You get shot and lose a life· Draw too late – You get shot and lose a lifeThe game is over when either you or your opponent has lost all three lives.
Shoot specific parts of your opponent to earn more points:
BONUS POINTS· If you have 3 lives remaining when you win, your total points will be tripled · If you have 2 lives remaining when you win, your total points will be doubled · If you have 1 life remaining when you win, you will not earn any bonus points
QUICK-DRAW GAMEPLAY TIPIf you are having difficulty shooting from the hip, you can try holding the gun ahead of you but aiming slightly below the screen’s bottom edge instead. When it comes time to draw, simply raise your wrists to aim at your opponent. If you are still receive a “Too Early” warning, angle the gun down more to ensure it does not still see the screen. We still recommend shooting from the hip for a genuine quick-draw experience, but this method helps less experienced players get used to the game.21
HALL OF FAMEIf you finish with one of the top five scores for a level (and your skill/difficulty level), you can enter your name into the Hall of Fame by shooting the letters/ numbers and then DONE.To view the High Scores/Hall of Fame, go to the Stage Selection Menu. In the Hall of Fame, click/shoot the left/right arrows to change the Stage, and then EASY, MED, HARD buttons to change the Skill/Difficulty level. The top five scores from each stage and skill/difficulty level will be displayed.NOTE: To clear the list of high scores, go to Options from the Main Screen. Once a high scores list has been cleared, it cannot be restored.22

The turf used on some simulators may cause a static electricity buildup that can affect the LightGun in rare cases. General use of the LightGun should remain unaffected. However, before connecting or disconnecting the LightGun from the computer, please ensure you have discharged any static buildup by touching a grounded metal surface or your PC case beforehand. If your gun becomes unresponsive after a static discharge, unplug it from the USB port and reboot the computer. After the computer has restarted, plug the gun back in and relaunch the game. This should reset the LightGun and restore its functionality.ERROR CODES AND ERROR REPORTINGShould you encounter an error while playing Wild West, the error system should be able to guide you through a resolution in real-time.
