Hi!

I'm now owner of WICO trackball.
Have no idea how to programming it. I tried to plug it into joy-port1 and read values... fire works, but trackball has 360° directions...

So, can anybody help me? I'm owner of Commodore 128DCR, so help for C64 is also usable.

Thanks for every help.

So, I tried any joystick's programs and now I know that it's the same type of control to every degree...

Hmm.. so it's basically a joystick emulator with 8 discrete directions?

Why would anyone want that? :)

It's not exactly like joystick with 8 directions.

When I'm rolling ball, it goes to the direction as ball is rolling.
Not only N,S,W,E,NW,NE,SW,SE...
It does this:
- if I'm rolling other direction than written above:
values:
253
253
253
253
247
247
and this direction is to S and little balance to W.

What's the same as joystick is driver - reading positions and fire.

My English is too bad to explain it better...

main: works like mouse but reads joy-port as joystick.
