    What do you mean invert the direction? Do you mean make the trackball do the opposite thing? As in go down when rolled up and up when rolled down.

    Like a plane's controls instead of a game console's controls?

    I dont think its possible... Maybe a software hack or something. But to date I've not seen a true software hack.

    Why? Well my thoughts on the matter. On the old Nintendo 16 there was this one game StarFox. The default controls on it was set to go down if pressed up on the controls and vice versa. I was young and didn't mess with the controls. That's how I learned it. Later on it became difficult for me to play other plane games. Which were built with the more traditional controls.

    So my thought is that s/he became used to it in one way and wanted to know if that's changeable.

    Just my stone in the pond.

    ya i've used inverted controls on every thing since i was young, (don't know why but it works for me) its not really essential but it would be more comfortable for me.
