I have a handful of classic arcade games that I would like to use a Trackball with.  The image is 512GB Wolfanoz Total Recal Raspberry Pi 4.  I’m running it on a Pi 400.

When I select Missile Command with the Mame emulator, the trackball works fine.  When I select Centipede, Millipede or any other game running Libreto emulator, the trackball isn’t recognized.

How do I go about getting it to work?

UPDATE: I gave up on fixing the trackball issue in 512GB Wolfanoz Total Recal.  I downloaded the BoredGameDad 256GB Super Clean Batocera and expanded roms partition to fill a 512GB microSD.  Runs like a champ.  It automatically setup the games for the 2-player and trackball.  The only quirks were configuring menus, fonts, overlays to work with the 16:9 landscape display.

Batocera runs faster and I like the configuration.  It ain’t as pretty as Recalbox.

I’ll do more tweaking on it, then backup the microSD.

Glad my image worked for your needs and you’re enjoying it!
