Alright gang - guess what? It worked... kind of. So I have the spinners working BUT only on games that are running out of MAME 2003 and 2010. I have a bunch of other games that are running through Final Burn Alpha - which does NOT support the spinners.
On another note I have a bunch of Atari 2600 paddle games I want to play but here is another problem. Apparently ther are two Atari emulators in Retropie. One is Stella and the other is IR Stella. I have a full set of IR Stella, and thats cool... BUT it does not support a mouse. If i had just regular Stella it would be no problem, which I don’t.
So now I need to figure out how to load in new ROMs for Only mame and then figure out how to load regular Stella... I’m very close thank to you super sleuths. Thanks for the help, now hoping you can give me some more advice on loading up the few loose ends.
