Setting up Trackball in Demul
« on: May 10, 2019, 06:06:12 pm »
I've been using Mame for a few years, but I'm faily new to Demul.

I'm having trouble setting up a trackball for games like Monkeyball.

I know where to do settings for the controllers, but I don't know how to make it register the trackball as the analog controller.
In mame, you just select the analog controller and then roll the ball.  In Demul, it doesn't register.

Anyone know how to do this?

I don't think there are any settings, unfortunately.  The trackball games just work with a mouse.  I've never tried with Monkey Ball, though I believe that game originally had an analog joystick shaped like a banana.  Try another game like Virtua Golf / Dynamic Golf.

You are correct.




The other arcade game in this series, Super Monkey Ball: Ticket Blitz (2011) had a trackball.
