Paddle sensitivity/issues are currently being worked on.  If the current settings don't solve your problem, then unfortunately you'll have to wait for the next release.

OK, Stella 4.6.1 is released, fixing the debugger-input related bug mentioned above.  I will now start looking at paddle emulation.

I'm going to do the 4.6.1 release very soon, since it has a showstopper bug (input doesn't work in the debugger).  After that, I am going to concentrate on the paddle issues for 4.7; we've had this problem for long enough ...

I will have another look at the paddle emulation, to see if things can be improved a little (perhaps make the sensitivity settings more pronounced or something).  But as Thomas said, there is actually a dead-zone on real paddles. or at least there is on all paddles I have (4 sets) and games I've tried (10+).  I will try to make the settings more configurable to suit different mice speeds, acceleration, etc, but in the end, Kaboom is just one of those games that needs real hardware (Stelladaptor, etc).

The editing issues in the debugger have been fixed, and will be coming in the next release.


PS: Sorry for the long delay in responding; work and real life getting in the way again ...
