trackball controls

Just moved my EOA game to a computer attached to my TV, so I have a wireless keyboard/trackball combo for control. Dang but it's hard to draw on the slates with a trackball! Anyone have any hints on how to do it better?

Don't think there's a better way. Myst 5 handles the mouse the same way a lot of first-person games do: everytime you move it, it moves the actual cursor to the exact center of the screen, but then adjusts the visible in-game cursor as needed. While this is great because it keeps you from clicking out of the window, it makes trackballs act wonky.

I have no idea of how to get it to work with a trackball. I know a mouse is not ideal for playing in front of the TV. Can you play with a touchpad? It seems like you would be able to but I'm not sure.
