MultiPlay MX4 Expansion
« on: 20:29, 15 May 16 »
The MultiPlay allow to add two controllers on the expansion port.
It is easy to use them from BASIC, with the INP() command.



Each controller port can be set with two inputs modes:
- AMS = Amstrad joystick and GX4000 gamepad
- AMI = Amiga joystick / mouse (and compatible)

Each mouse sensitivity is 200dpi / 4bit acceleration.  (DK'Tronics mouse is 50dpi / 1bit)
Last but not least: Left, Middle and Right buttons are supported.

50Hz games support w/o conflict. It is handled like arcade machines!

You can preorder from CPC Boards8)
Now, we need Lemmings and North & South hacked games.  :P

An USB to DB9 adapter should work if it is OK with an Amiga. (untested actually)

The choice was made to support natively the Amiga mouse, because it is more easy to find.
So, Atari ST mouse require a "ST to Amiga" adapter to properly work.

I already have a Atari ST mouse.
What do you think of this adapter?
  AMIGA MOUSE TO ATARI ST / ATARI ST MOUSE TO AMIGA ADAPTER CONVERTER | eBay
The difference between Atari and Amiga mouse is the horizontal/vertical sensors pinout.
You only need to swap the 4 related pins and it seem what this adapter is doing  ;)

Super cool board, I will buy one for sure. Problem is that we need a Mother X4 with more ports, something like a Mother X8  :D Mother of God.
