Multiple mice support (spinners)


I'm building an arcade cabinet with a dedicated PC to run MAME. In the control panel I have 2 spinners, and I'm trying to figure out how to setup my system to be able to use them independently. I tried using Linux, but I've had no luck so far. I wrote an issue on GitHub ( and from a reply I've gotten it looks like the problem might be the lack of support for multiple mice in SDL 2.

So now I'm broadening my search and ask you guys: how would you suggest I configure my system? I would prefer to use Linux if possible, but I'm ok with Windows too if not possible otherwise.
