i want to show you a Project im working on and that i want to share with all Retro PC Users, its based on Simon Augustins old RS232 PS/2 Project.
This Device allows you to drive many Optical PS/2 Mouses on Serialports with Microsoft Serial Mouse Driver.
It drives me Nuts to use this Old Mechanical Mouses often with issues, bad moving speed, not ergonomic...
This is the Solution to give your trusty old 286/386/486 a really handy mouse.
The Firmware is rewritten by Felmar Loyd, and works now in Logitech Mouse Mode.
- Wheel Mouse Support
- 19200 Baud Turbo Mode (KVM Speed bump)
- Logitech / Microsoft Protocol Switchable
