The Neos/NCE mouse works with the VIC20. This is because it uses the POT line as right mouse button and a clocked protocol for data. It has the rather stupid feature that the left button blocks the protocol though because FIRE is used both for the left button _and_ the clock. Now, what I'd like to see would be a mouse converter supporting this protocol but with both buttons wired to a POT line. It could even be made to include the buttons in the data protocol which is just 4-bits of data per clock edge with a blanking period to reset the state. Such a setup would work for both the C64 and the VIC20. /Daniel Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2009-11-23 08:00:06
