I am using a MINI-PAC with the Ultimarc trackball.. The trackball works in PIXEL, and Retroarch GUI.. I have tried everything to get the trackball to work in mame 2016 with no luck.. Set verbose logging but don't see any issues:
/opt/retropie/configs/all/runcommand-onstart.sh: line 17: /home/pi/.attract/scripts/amlastplayed.sh: No such file or directory

If I change the emulator to advmame it works.. but the image is very small and no bezels... I tried mame2003 but (golden tee) roms won't load.. Again verbose logging shows no issues..
I even used the USB adapter from Ultimarc to see if that would work.. still no go..
I am frustrated.. spent days working on this.. I even thought maybe my MINI-PAC was bad, put in a new one.. nope...
I followed the wiki page for trackballs, made all the settings in my config files. Googled the subject to death and tried everything I found.. nothing..
Man, I could really use some suggestions if anyone can help...
Maybe it's just the sensitivity setting like in this thread?
I found that it's an issue with the pi4 8gb version... In a pi4 4gb it works fine.. This is VERY odd...
@wavfact Same installation / sd card?
Actually, I was mistaken.. not working in a pi4 4gb.. works in advmame but not mame 2016
I did edit the mame.ini and set multimouse to mouse.. still no go..
I set the sensitivity to 70 for both X and Y.. no go..
@wavfact Alas, I have no experience with MAME 2016. However, I would approach the problem by finding a rom with trackball support that's working in MAME 2003 to see if the issue is there, too.
I figured out what was going on.. All works now..
in configs/arcade there was a copy or a full retroarch.cfg in there and wasn't being updated.. I tried removing it, adding a symbolic link to confis/all/retroarch.cfg nothing would work... Game would just exit on me.. So I modified that file for input_driver and mouse index.. all is fine now..
@wavfact Good to know, thanks for sharing your solution.
