Summary 08696: opwolf3 and clones: games are using LIGHTGUN inputs for the guns, but the real machines use X/Y variable resistors for aiming (pots)
Description This set is hooked up for lightgun inputs but the games really use pots for aiming and should be AD_STICK. The manual shows the X and Y variable resistors in the gun assembly diagrams/lists and in the schematics at the end, something positional guns use to track. Lightguns use optic sensors.
Steps To Reproduce 1. Run the affected games.
2. TAB to the Input Assignments for the system and view them.
Additional Information Luke Morse mentions the game uses pots in passing while playing the board he fixed.

First image:
  Page 18 of the manual
  Shows the gun assembly and the parts. I highlighted the pots in blue.

Second image shows the connections referencing the resistors "VR 1P X/Y" and "VR 2P X/Y" on pages 21, 25, and 26.

The only game in the Operation Wolf series that uses a lightgun is the first game. The 3 sequels use positional guns.
EDIT: Forgot to mention the game needs crosshairs to calibrate too, it doesn't have a UI setting for it.
