Horay for a Mac app too! I might get one just for everyday use. Kids wrecked my Mac trackpad and they expensive.

 be careful.... the app for it is a pos! but it is plug n play on all systems... supposedly it even works on xbox and ps. idk just saw a few docs in some forums about it.... but i do know you have to do some compatibility crap and what not to work the app... i just gave up and use it pnp.... works great out the box....

Kensington trackball with scrollring works great for a trackball and spinner and was only 30 bucks. It does kinda jump but with some tweaking I got it so you don't really notice.  Tried it on tron and it did well. I'll update this when I get more info. I just got this today. Arknoid is next after the kiddy's go to bed!!! FINGERS CROSSED!!

Hopefully I can help with your dilemma :) You could always try retroarch, which includes the stella core for Atari 2600 and works just as well as the stand-alone program (Stella). If you decide to try retroarch, here is the emulator configuration I use, assuming you install your emulators in a folder named "emulators" within the attractmode directory, otherwise be sure to change these directory settings based on your own configuration

# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.3.0
executable           emulators\retroarch\retroarch.exe -L emulators\retroarch\cores\stella_libretro.dll
args                 "[romfilename]"
rompath              emulators\media\atari2600\roms
romext               .bin;.a26;.zip;.rar;.7z
system               Atari 2600
artwork    flyer           emulators\media\atari2600\boxes
artwork    marquee         emulators\media\atari2600\marquees
artwork    snap            emulators\media\atari2600\videos
artwork    wheel           emulators\media\atari2600\logos

I'm considering it...

i gotta sayim SO impressed with this frontend. took me some time to figure it out but i finally got it. i just have a question to ask and its not intended to be mean or ill willed but....

i see alot of hyperspin stuff and i also see alot of talent on here.
so my question....
why are you guys WASTING your time on crap already done. OBVIOUSLY alot of you got some SERIOUS talent!!
so whynot do somthing ORIGINAL ??
look imean no harm and i know im gonna get crap for this but hell man
as an artist myself I just cant understand why you would WASTE your time on SOMEONE ELSES GARBAGE!!
again its just a curiosity question and if thats what you like cool nim just thinking with allthe knowing and talent yall have try somthing other then hyperspin.. imho its overdone by other frontend programs and i think yall could come up with somthing much cooler...
i do love this fe and i love the work i see here and love the talent so please dont anyone get unhinged by this.. im just saying and its only an opinion...

i couldnt do half the stuff some of you guys do and i think it all looks badass i just think the hyper thing is over done and would really love to see some origanle stuff!!! just saying...
keep up the great work...
