Hey ! I use a clone and this works very well. I'm not a hardware guru but i can solder a connector so it was very easy to make this. The only trouble i had with the clone is that the Arduino (newer versions of the Arduino software) wil detect that it is a clonechip..if that is the case the Arduino software is not working. (when you upload the config)

I used this link from the internet and that worked very wel for the clonel:

Set your clone correct

So i my case this mouse solution works very well on the clone!.. And other good thing is ... I user a optical USB mouse with scroll wheel.. and that works very nice! .. i don't want to use a original MSX mouse anymore ;) As this works very smooth.

I've had one which went broken. I found it not really handy in GraphSaurus as it turned out it was quite hard to get the pointer exactly on the pixel I wanted. It was a tad wild.
How is that lately? I'd like the idea to use the scrollwheel on my MSX... Install symbos on a cf card even (never tried it)...
Real MSX mice are mostly way too over priced (seen them go for 70 euros, which in my opinion is the price I would give for three pieces)... If you're not to expensive o.geerdink, I'd like to buy one of yours anyhow... Since it's genuine Smile

My early version had a bug that caused mouse pointer not to respond on small movements when movement accuracy was adjusted to low. I think now it reacts pretty much like genuine mouse and there is no delay & jumping like with those RS-232 mouse adapters.

It reacts way much better than a normal msx mouse.. Since I have this USB optical I don't want to go back :-)

I think it's a good time for me to shout "shut up and take my money" then Tongue

Hello again. On the Enterprise scene we have good news.

Thanks to the information contained here from NYYRIKKI and based on the Extended mouse protocol from him and Prodatron, Pear, a Polish developer, has finished his project Entermice and now we are beta-testing it.

Inside it, the strange Enterprise ports and its more strange signals, have been standardized, the Joystick ports now are Atari-Kempston type with three fire buttons and, over all, there is a wonderful PS/2 port to connect a wheel mouse with five buttons.

It would be nice that an Entermice version of SymbOS could be released.......

Great news, thanks for posting, Gflorez! I will be back in november and add the support!

Looks easy to do. Nowadays even for ~ 5 euro!
Reading this thread I am only a bit in doubt about the +5 V connection for the PS/2 connecter. So I made this drawing:

Is the +5V correctly connected if I want to use it standalone after programming the Arduino?

I would like to have the same thing for HID mice.
