As some of you may or may not know, Thomas Jentzsch and I have converted some 2600 games to use a Trak-Ball controller. Thomas originally converted Missile Command to use the trackball over a decade ago. More recently Thomas converted Centipede and Reactor. I joined the fun and did Millipede. The thread we posted the ROMs in wasn't really related... it all came about kind of spontaneously. That thread does contain a whole whack of routines if anyone is ever interested. It all starts on page 4 and goes for several pages.
Here in this thread are the latest ROMs, organized, for easy finding.
Note for CX80 Trak-Balls:
Atari originally made CX80 Trak-Balls to be compatible with the CX22. Later on they changed the CX80 to be compatible with the ST Mouse. If you have a CX80 Trak-Ball then you will have to try both the CX22 and CX80 (ST Mouse) ROMs to see what works with your Trak-Ball. Or try the detection ROM.
Note for CX22 Trak-Balls:
An early version of this controller only works in joystick emulation mode and cannot be used with these ROMs unless modified. Check for the presence of the "joystick/trakball" switch on the bottom left side to ensure that you have the later compatible version and set it in "trakball" mode.
Wico Command Controller Trackballs:
These trackballs don't work with these ROMs as is. However, the Wico Trackball can be converted to use the CX80 (ST Mouse) ROMs. See here for details.
