Sorry, but the signals stay switched on for a time still way too long (1 second).


Please load FutureOS into your M4 card and move the mouse arrow. Then compare to version 1.0.6 (or more early). It's easy to see. Good luck!

A french site was talking about another electronic device to do the same thing than the imperium, so I wrote a message about this cpcwiki thread.

MouSTer looks nice, but aren't there USB solutions for the ST and the Amiga already?

I think there is lots of PS/2 "USB" adapters, but true USB only recently.

Ah, ok. Is there an advantage though?

Yes, many modern USB mouse do not support PS/2 mode. And of course you cant use USB gamepads either when you only have PS/2 interface.

Thanks @GUNHED , tested and working as it should again !

For anyone using mouse mode, please upgrade to v1.1.6 from here:

Look under "Firmware Downloads"

Good news: It works.

Addition: If I move the mouse slowly, then the device doesn't send a signal, so no move on screen.
