O……M…….G!! SO AWESOME!
funny thing. I have the same thing you have and I emailed Andy, but he really didn’t have an answer. I’m so happy your fixed this. I’m ecstatic actually!
So…can you link the new firm ware for others to use or is it just for you???
Thanks millions for figuring this out.nosedeathParticipant03/25/2016 at 13:57Post count: 75nosedeathParticipant03/15/2016 at 16:09Post count: 75nosedeathParticipant03/15/2016 at 14:30Post count: 75
Mame4All will not work with a Trackball. I’ve tried and tried.
AdvMame works with the trackball. So I put all my trackball games in that mame folder and then I use mame4All for everything else.
Only problem I have is centipede doesn’t work.
Before you stress out anymore do it that way. I worked on this for weeks!nosedeathParticipant03/15/2016 at 13:00Post count: 75nosedeathParticipant03/08/2016 at 15:26Post count: 75nosedeathParticipant03/08/2016 at 15:25Post count: 75nosedeathParticipant03/07/2016 at 14:27Post count: 75nosedeathParticipant03/04/2016 at 15:25Post count: 75nosedeathParticipant03/03/2016 at 17:15Post count: 75
First off do yourself a favor and download PuTTY. It’ll save your life.
Then. See this link.
That’s what I did.
In the beginning I think I was configuring the wrong file and that’s why nothing worked hence the title of my post…I was get’n pissed.
Anyway..I’m still trying to get my Trackball to work. I’ve been a little busy and haven’t gotten back to my arcade in a few days. I’ll try tonight and keep you posted.nosedeathParticipant03/02/2016 at 14:21Post count: 75nosedeathParticipant03/01/2016 at 20:31Post count: 75nosedeathParticipant03/01/2016 at 16:23Post count: 75
I started over. Again.
This time I put the ROMS in the respective folders. 037b11 back in MAME4ALL
and the .94’s back into AdvMame folders. Oh and I think I must have put the inputs in the wrong .cfg file. Because that’s all good too. The only problem now is my TrackBall. I just can NOT get that to work. I have one more thing I’m going to try before I just not use it at all.
In short…All the buttons are responding now and all my games are working now. The only odd thing is when the ROMS load there’s and error saying it might now work but then it loads anyway.
Moral of the sorry. Don’t give up. Take a Breath. Keep reading. Keep Trying.
Here is what I have come across and I saved the link in my favorites.
Everyone on here is awesome.

1. Does your Pi boot to EmulationStation?
Yes. All is good there.
2. Can you see the ROMs under the appropriate emulator? If not, I would suggest checking compatibility, here for FinalBurn Alpha and here for MAME.
3. Does the controller work on the EmulationStation home screen? I’ve not used the iPac 2 so I can’t help you with any specifics where. However have you read this thread? Alternatively, a temporary solution might be using a different controller. I’ve got a couple CSL gamepads, they’re not ideal for MAME and arcade stuff but you can assign the buttons however you like.
I’m using Happ arcade buttons. Old school arcade no controller. Everything works in the Emulationstation menus. When I enter any rom it’s says my iPac2 is not set up. I’ve updated the firmware for the iPac2. I’ve add all the inputs for player 1 under the retroarch.cfg. I’ve set up the buttons in the mame menu using the TAB key but they don’t stay. I’ve tried using the Retroarch setup screen but my buttons don’t work so I can’t set anything. My trackball doesn’t work at all. It did for a while when I loaded up the .94 roms for AdvMame but now it doesn’t. I switched back to the 037b11 rom set for mame4all but now those don’t work at all. With AdvMame not all the games work. So I tried lr-mame2003 and that works but I can’t configure the buttons in Retroarch so it doesn’t REALLY work. I’ve also updated to RetroPi 3.5.
I dunno what to do anymore. Maybe I’m just doing it ALL wrong. I wish I could just send this thing out and have it all done for me because I dunno what to do anymore.
4. Do the ROMs boot? If so, have you setup you controller to take credits? I was stuck trying to use the default keys for ages, for which I suggest reading.
See above.nosedeathParticipant02/28/2016 at 23:40Post count: 75
I really with I could get my ulimarc trackball to work.nosedeathParticipant02/27/2016 at 16:54Post count: 75
Same boat. I’ve read all kinds of articles and watch a few YouTube channels but nothing seems to fix it.
EDIT: Check this out. I’m going to dive into it when I get home see if it works.

No I didn’t have to do anything with the sound. It seemed fine. I’ll run it again when I get home and double check for ya.nosedeathParticipant02/23/2016 at 14:48Post count: 75
OK…I started completely from scratch. Retro Pi 3.5. Fresh new flash drive.
Still nothing. I tried centipede on ALL the emulators. Nothing. I haven’t tried the .94 roms yet and I haven’t tried adding the…….
….yet….so tonight I’ll see.nosedeathParticipant02/23/2016 at 14:43Post count: 75
I run all my MK with lr-mame4all. Works perfect, sound and all. Only problem I’m having is mapping the keys. That I can’t figure out.
