What keyboard and/or mouse do you recommend to use with the Replay?
I have been using a Logitech K400 PlusIf you just need to navigate the 17 dollar keyboard you posted should be okay. If you plan on streaming Steam to your Replay I would invest in a full size keyboard and regular mouse. It does not have to be as good as your regular set up, but at least my K400 can get get my hands cramping if I try to do much gaming on it.

On an unrelated note I am currently using a Razer Black Widow and Death Adder on my main PC. They are a bit old, and I am looking to replace them in a few months with a Logitech set up. I'll have to do a little more research, but I was just curious how is yours holding up in general?
Thanks

Trackball for Arcade game recommendations

Post by enad2k » Tue Aug 14, 2018 2:57 pm

Hi,

So is there a recommendation out there for a trackball to use specifically for Arcade games? Games that I cant hink of that use trackballs specifically are millipede and centipede. I think even games like marble madness might have even used a trackball.

Anyway, not looking to break the bank but something that would be not too hard to get mame to use from the Dreamcade Front End and give a somewhat nice close to arcade experience. I would think even a couple buttons may be needed depending on the action buttons the various emulated games use. Actions like Fire and the like.

This Amazon answer mentions it uses Bluetooth. If that is the case then as long as it uses X input it should work fine.
