    I have a combination of games in a single folder where some use a joystick and others should use the trackball (but these can only be played with the joystick). Is there a way to force the games to use the trackball instead of the joystick?



    In my es_input.cfg file in /home/pi/.emulationstation, I tried some different combinations of the following where mouse is replaced with track, trackball, and the deviceGUID of 0 and1, but still can’t get mame to detect it.

    In advancemame, the trackball does work, but the game doesn’t… 🙂

    <inputConfig type=”mouse” deviceName=”mouse” deviceGUID=”1″>
    <input name=”Track X” type=”key” id=”0″ value=”0″ />
    <input name=”Track Y” type=”key” id=”222″ value=”0″ />
