Electric Studio Mouse - Software?
« on: 19:52, 26 January 19 »
I've just acquired an Electric Studio Mouse interface for the PCW but no mouse and no software...
Looking at the interfaces guts it looks like it takes a standard quadrature mouse but with a bespoke pinout so I have hooked up an assembly to let me plug an Atari ST mouse in and play with the pinout a bit.
I've identified the 0v, 5v and what would be the three mouse button inputs and what would be the X1/X2/Y1/Y2 inputs and so I hooked it up and took a punt to see it it used ports 0xA0 to 0xA7 by doing PRINT INP(value) under Mallard basic and I can see data coming back on 0xA6, so it is mostly working.
What I need now is a piece of software to actually test it with, is there anything out there as a DSK that either came with the interface or can I get something like Symbos to use it?

Cheers, I'll see if I can find a copy but that's an AMX title so not sure it will recognise the ES mouse as they use different ports to read but I'll give it a crack.

Ok, we have a winner ;D

Master Paint supports AMX and Electric Studio mouse, downloadable from http://www.habisoft.com/pcwwiki/

Thanks Habi!
