I wanted to do something a bit different than most of people here, to have an real retro mouse for MSX, blocky and with a ball. So I found a old Logitech PS/2 mouse, and managed to place arduino board inside it


I used NYYRIKKI's 1.1 version of the code (a BIG THANK YOU for publishnig it!). I have tested it in as many programs and games as I could.

It works perfect with Cheese 1 and 2, E.A.S.E 1.1 and 1.4, Yamaha Graphic Artist, Joystick Test 2.3, SymbOS, JB Harold 3, Ark-A-Noah, Saurus Lunch and Suffle Puck.

In these programs mostly works, but sometimes mouse arrow goes down-right constantly: MSX Paint IV (down-right only in main menu), Salas Freehand 1.3 (down-right in file menu).

In these program mouse arrow goes down-right constantly: Final Graphics, SII Anime, Unipaint.

These programs do not work with it: Sony Graphics Editor, Sony HiBrid, MSX Hid Tester 3.0 (cannot detect what it is, buttons can be read), Joystick Test 2.2 (cannot detect it, buttons can be read).

Does somebody know what is so special about programs that cannot use it? Do they require some special hardware to work? Maybe the problem is that I used a realy old mouse?
