So I have this set up, and working on the proper axes in windows, when I
played around with the cursor. I go into MAME, and I can't seem to set
the X or Y movement in the settings. I tried to highlite "track x
analog" as well as "track x dec" and "inc", and then move the ball in
the appropriate direction. Do I need an optipac to make this work? This
is probably a stupid question, but I thought I'd fire it off anyways.

what mame client are you using?

In mame32 there is an option in the settings to turn on mouse input, make
sure that it is checked.

I am running the command line version of mame and mamewah FE. I'll look
though in the options for something about turning on mouse input.

Well you seem to have gotten me in the right direction, at least. I
found the .ini file in mamewah that controls wether the mouse is enabled
or not, that seems to have at least woken it up. I can scroll through
the games menu using the ball now. Still when I go to a game there's no
response from either my mouse or my trackball, and have the same problem
trying to set it in the game options as previously mentioned.

Update myself again, turns out that the problem I was having involved
having two mice hooked up at once in XP. This link
http://urebelscum.speedhost.com/
has a mame build that supports multiple mice. I haven't tried it as of
yet, but I'll let you know how it works out.
