Hi folks, Ive gotten my IPAC controller working but in advance mame, which as I understand it is the emulator to use with my trackball, the trackball isnt working. It does work in say the front end of the amiga emulator – so I know its not my soldering!
Any ideas where I need to look?lamaman1971Participant11/17/2015 at 15:10Post count: 26
Hi Folks, as there hasnt been much response on this Ill look elsewhere. Im assuming other folks here have had some success with trackballs and advance mame though? What does your config look like?lamaman1971Participant11/19/2015 at 14:18Post count: 26
Ok, sorted this out. So for those of you struggling with it or contemplating using a trackball heres how to get it working reliably. Its all down to the config file for advanceMAME in the hidden .advance directory : /home/pi/.advance/
Pick the config file for the version your using (or edit both)
device_raw_mousedev /dev/input/mouse0 (or whatever your trackball is assigned to – mine was mouse1)

Thanks for your post, this helped with my issue of using 2 mice w/ AdvMAME.
For those who have a trackball and want to determine which /dev/input/mouse# device is being assigned, you can do
cat /dev/input/mouse0and see if characters appear when moving the trackball. If nothing comes up, try
cat /dev/input/mouse1and doing the same. Press ^C to stop.
