Illuminated trackball controller

Recommended Posts

I picked up a Millipede cabinet (my first arcade machine!) the other day and I want to replace the trackball. Has anyone here had any experience installing an illuminated trackball? I'm wondering what would be the best and/or easiest way to supply power to it.

I've got an Ultimarc U-Trak on my MAME cabinet (www.ultimarc.com), with a translucent white ball that is lit from underneath. I hacked together my own lighting setup but Ultimarc sells lighting kits for this purpose, so you may want to check them out.

 

One thing though--isn't Millipede a 2" ball? I think Centipede is, anyway. The kit I have is a 3" trackball, so maybe none of it will work for your application.

Cool thanks. Actually, Millipede uses a 3" trackball, but it shouldn't make any difference. I believe all the illuminated trackballs require 12v.
