I was recently given an old Spaceball 5000 for a study project I am working on. Since I am using MacOS X none of the available drivers were suitable for my needs. Through a bit of detective work I have been able to get the Spaceball to give me ball data, but to save me a bit of time I am hoping someone could clarify some details.
When the ball returns to its center position I get the packet:
This represents the movement along the 3 axis and rotation around the 3 axis. This represents the movement along the 3 axis and rotation around the 3 axis. Has anyone worked with this before and worked out:
- which field represent which input
- what the exact format of the field is?
PS I hope posting this is not contrary to forum rules - I couldn't see any mention.
