None so far, unfortunately.   :'(  Looking for recommendations what to get, for FutureOS and/or SymbOS. What is the best (available!) choice?

I use a AMX mouse. My main use so far with it has been with DES, but I do intend to have a play with it in Advanced Art Studio and MicroDesign at some point.

The "Bryce Mouse" option isn't really required as it is essentially an AMX mouse from a CPC Software perspective.

Ah ok, is there an other kind of mouse (or rat) I forgot?

Personally I prefer proportional mice over joystick-compatible mice, but let's see what people are actually using.  :)

Please vote! :) :) :)

Option added (Sorry, I forget, because I always use two joysticks with the nice MultiPlay).

Maybe because there's no "I don't use a mouse" option? Seriously, I never even knew that was possible.

Good idea, option added. Now 10 votes for joystick-compatible mouses and 5 votes for proportional mouses. Please everybody vote :-)

I don't use any mouse yet, but since Bryce modified my CPC plus with a USB port for a mouse, that pretty much decides it for me.  :)
 Some day I wanna be using either SymbOS or FutureOS - or maybe both, and be online with my CPC and such.  :) Chatting on IRC and maintaining servers via SSH.  8)

I answered both "no mouse" and "AMX" - because back in the day I used an AMX mouse, but now? It's gone walkies, so I have no mouse. :( Plus I don't have the budget to hunt down a replacement, despite wanting one (of any variety; would probably use it mostly with FutureOS and SymbOS, so I don't even know what options I have at the moment. Best bet would be a Bryce/USB mod?).


That's essentially why I didn't vote previously.

I don't make them any more, but you can still buy it from others who are building to my design.
