Flycast – Mouse for lightgun games, unable to save configuration

Hi everyone, I have a problem with the Flycast core.
I downloaded from Arcade Punks CoinOPS 2 base pack with r2, r3, ecc. included, update to r4 and added some add-on including those Naomi and Atomiswave but with the configuration included in this two packs the games that require a lighitgun did not work via Xbox 360 controllers as they should, obviously I don’t have a real lightgun. So I tried to recreate a configuration similar to that included using lightgun as device and mapping the controller in the global input settings but the problem is that besides not working, as well as did not work the included configuration, I could not even save it because the override function creates a specific cfg for the game but without any reference to the input values.
After several attempts the only way I managed to make the lightgun games work was to set “Lightgun” as a device and use the mouse after having previously mapped its three buttons as shoot, reload and play. In the end I prefer it as a solution but it remains the problem of saving the configuration because the mapping of the 3 keys cannot be carried out through the controller section of the core, setting the device to lightgun it is not possible to map anything, and carrying it out from the global settings it is not saved through the override function.
I state that I also tried to create the cfg by hand entering the values ​​for the mapping of the 2 mouse buttons but ,as for the original cfg included in the pack, these are ignored.
How can I save the config avoid mapping the two buttons by hand every time I start a game?

Many thanks!
