Pmed you on assembler.

Photobucket or imageshack would be a better choice for uploading pix, by the way.

Personally I'd rather not have a screen full of women dildoing themselves in the **** when I least expect it, at least at work anyway.

You have to build a custom cable i'm affraid. Naomi panels with trackball (Dynamic Golf / Outtrigger) are driven by the trackball i/o mounted on the panel through the JVS i/o using an extra USB cable creating a loop. That's how this panel works on a JVS setup. Really curious how you can fix this for JAMMA.

It's a standard trackball. How many wires go from the trackball to the trackball i/o panel on the board? I would guess there's two wires for vertical movement, two for horizontal, ground and +5V. So six in all. You just need to wire up those to the jamma board.

EDIT: Happ trackballs (which I know yours isn't), have separete cables for both axis', so there's two ground wires and two +5V wires. That's four plus four, so eight in all.

What are you trying to do, i.e. which game is it you're trying to use the trackball with? The trackball on the CP is connected to a JVS I/O board under the CP, so unless your game is a JVS game - you need to bypass the PCB under the CP.
