Mapping Mouse2 from Xtension Plus controller
I have tried everything. When I edit the retroarch-core-options.cfg and add the line setting the mouse to mouse2.. when trying to load centipede or any game that uses a rollerball. It doesn't see the rollerball.
NOTE: I tested the cat /dev/input/mouse2 and sure enough the rollerball sends data to the screen
I cannot get retroarch to assign the mouse2 as the main mouse for the games that need it.
Please provide more information about your system as requested in https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first.
Did you read the Docs section about mouse/trackball/spinners ?
Yes I read the Docs section about mouse/trackball/spinners
Retropie latest 4.4
Raspberry Pi 3 B+
Xtension joystick arcade plus+ - This has 2x 8way directional, 1x 4way, 1x spinner, 1x rollerball
lr-mame2003 with .78 roms added to the arcade folder.
@jlvandusen Have you tried setting the mouse index in the RGUI (RetroArch menu) instead of editing the
Start a game/rom with verbose logging enabled (select it in the Runcommand launch menu), test the trackball (and see it's not working), exit the game and then get the
/dev/shm/runcommand.logfile from the RetroPie sistem and upload it to pastebin.com to take a look.
Ok this has been resolved...
Appears that after wiping the SD and starting over with clean install... It now properly runs with the rollerball acting correctly and I am able to play those glorious games now.
@jlvandusen That's great ! Just for my curiosity - how did you configure the trackball - editing the config file/through the RGUI/etc. ?
@mitu - I was able to use mame4all which sees that roller correctly - very confusing how the retroarch cfg works..
To see the spinner for arkanoid I had to switch to mame4all and looking at the input shows J1 RetroPad -X and +X for the controls... I don't know how to map that here as the spinner doesn't provide anything like that in the mame config (tab) and when I edit the .cfg file I tried adding the following:
input_player1_left_axis = "-0"
with no luck... still unable to get the spinner working - howbeit the trackball works out of the box with mame4all.... lol
Somebody needs to write up a config walkthrough for retroarch and that joystick system... greatly.
