  1. Hey Team. Earlier last week i scored a CX-22 Trakball from ebay for a fairly low price (10.50 shipped) I wasn't expecting much, however it did say tested and working..so i took a shot. Once i got it home, i could feel the ball was noisy and sticking horribly. Again, expected. I plugged it into my 7800 straight away, and of course, nothing worked but the left fire button, using Centipede7800 (official release) to test it. Zero movement. I opened it up, Gave the ball a serious soak, Cleaned all the rollers, and Bearings, cleaned the housing and board as best i could. first thing i noticed (beside the filthy gunky rollers and ball) was the wiring felt "off" like perhaps it was worked on, as there was a good amount of electrical tape just holding stuff together. At this time i should point out i know zero about electronics/circuitry/soldering etc. i noticed the center post of the right fire button was broken, so i left that be for now. I plugged it back in, while open, and fired up centipede. Both buttons worked when pressing directly on the board it'self, and there was some movement when spinning the wheels. after a good 3 hours of cleaning i put it back together, hit the 'Pede again, and now i had some movement, however seriously eradic. the "ship/player/character/w.e." automatically moved to the upper left or lower right. With some heavy pressure rolling, i was at least able to move the character around somewhat, although nowhere near playable, at least it was moving.... This is where i am kinda stuck. I know it's a shot in the dark but i assumed since there was "some" movement after cleaning, that it's just a physical thing. But it's probably electrical huh? i checked some much older threads, and a few people mentioned testing via a meter. Again, i have zero knowledge let alone the equipment. Would there be any other troubleshooting someone could walk me through? or perhaps if i posted photos of specific areas? PS i tested with it in joystick and TB mode, and it's basically the same. Any help would be appreciated, i would just love to see my little girl blasting bugs with a trakball, she fell inlove with an arcade cabinet of Centipede at her summer camp, and it would be magical to surprise her!
  2. I haven't been able to tell from the pictures in the promotional material, but was the cue ball in the Trakball controller originally white? All of the ones I've seen on ebay have yellowed cue balls. I'm wondering if that's just a sign of age.
  3. Looking for an atari 2600 Trakball complete in box.... with the box in good shape -- new in box even better -- shoot me a PM with your price, pictures would be great Thanks Dave
  4. I found this pretty cool looking mouse driver on an old L.A.C.E. disk today and decided to pull the documentation together and format it a little. I fixed a lot of errors, but maybe introduced a few new ones, since I didn't really go over it with a fine-toothed comb yet. I've included the L.A.C.E. disk as well as the all the original files pulled off the disk, including the Docs ARC and Programs ARC. I've only tried out the little BASIC test program that was included, but it looked pretty good, and the documentation and utilities seem to be pretty thorough. I also liked that he set it up to use CIO. Supposedly it will work with TBXL with a little configuring. Many thanks to Simon Trew, the author. Multi-Mouse.zip
