yes I checked it, did not add any extra APIs, only ways to test it in emu some how.

aha, please correct me if I'm wrong....

this example programm gives you the x,y-position of the mouse cursor as it schould give for the use with scummvm.
so it has to use the APIs you need for that, doesn't it???

so is it not possible to get this example running on a real unit? only in the sdk emulator? or what do you mean?

sorry man, but I would like to understand...

It might be the case that Samsung has updated the APIs since I looked last. What it says in the documentation is that its an api that switches between cursor and pointer mode, i.e you can get pointer events (normal symbian ones) or key events. And I have added mouse events for my S60 version of SDL now. Still I'm not sure that the API is needed.

I have a friend who has a device with the trackball on it.

Checked the API again, there are nothing special except an example that shows how to display a mouse cursor as a sprite if you don't have your own cursor.

aha, but you know that the innov8 works like a normal optical mouse( it is like moving your finger over the sensor of an optical mouse) I am not shoure if this trackball allows you to the same accuracy.

are you talking about this OJexample? because if you look at my earlier youtube link...this would be what we need.

Yes the OJ exampleis the only one available. The actual SDK is not extended with any new APIs as such!

still... if this example works, it gives you the actual x,y position of the cursor, controled by the optical sensor. can you include this to the scummvm? so that I can controll the position of the scummvm cursor by the optical sensor?

this is all i need :)

Touch/Mouse support for S60 will be included in the next release of ScummVM. So probably also the Samsung device.

I guess I need a I8510 to get that working properly then.Emulator and sdk extension is not enough, since it does n't really state how to use any mouse functionality.
