How to use mouse scroll wheel as a paddle?


Recommended Posts

I've been looking on the internet for ways to make a USB Paddle Controller to use on the stella emulator and play SuperBreakout, Kaboom  on the PC... or maybe play arkanoid on the MAME arcade emulator.

So I thought of using a mouse scroll wheel (scroll key), adapting this wheel to work as a paddle, placing it in a horizontal position inside a box, perhaps...

But I think there would have to be: either a modification in the stella/mame emulator to accept the mouse wheel as a paddle, or create a driver for Windows to understand the mouse wheel as a steering wheel....

Does anyone have any suggestions?

In MAME, you can map the scroll wheel buttons to the Paddle Analog Dec/Inc (Digital) settings.  This makes it feel more like a spinner.


Couldn't find a way to do it using Stella though...


To be honest though, you should use the mouse itself as an analog paddle since you'll have much finer control than with even a digital spinner.
