Trackball revert X and Y

Would it be possible to have an option in mame to revert the X or Y axis of the trackball?

If yes I'll share a nice hack to build a trackball out of a ping pong ball and a mouse that work fine.

When you hit TAB for the in-game UI menu, choose "Analog Controls" from the menu and from there you can adjust sensitivity, speeds and, of course, X and Y reverse.

Re: Trackball revert X and Y

I'm really sorry I missed this option :(

It's what I built: (I'll write a better article)

_ _ ____ < Plastic
| O | Toilet paper roll (with an orange ping pong ball)
\---/ <= Plastic with a hole in the middle
[Mouse] (Reverted)

Integrate well with my cabinet.

I was surprised to see that it's working quite well!
