[Minimig] USB Trackball : too slow / weird behaviour

Postby mahen » Tue Feb 16, 2016 11:53 pm

Hi everyone !

In my arcade cabinet, I use a U-Trak trackball (with the USB interface). It is detected on my Linux PC as a regular USB mouse and works OK (perfectly smooth and accurate movement).

However, on the MiST (Amiga core but I'm pretty sure it's the same with any core) movement seems erratic. It gives the feeling the mouse is not going straight, except when moving very slowly. I suspect it might be due to a very low sensitivity which forces me to roll the trackball too fast which isn't very well supported by its mechanism. Although I do not observe this kind of movement when using it on a PC...

Is it possible to manually set the mouse sensitivity in the mist.ini (couldn't find the piece of information in the wiki), to check if this is only a sensitivity issue or if there's something else wrong ?

As you can see on this bad video the problem only seems to occur horizontally :

Again, it works perfectly on my Linux pc.
