MROOCHECK MOUSE INTERFACE

Hardware

The Mroocheck PC Mouse Interface is a microprocessor-based adapter for attaching PC mouses, trackballs, glidepoints, radio-controlled mouses to all models of Amiga computers. It is connected between the PC mouse and Amiga Mouse port.

It supports PC serial and combo (PS/2 and serial) mouses working in the following protocols:

  • Mouse System format
  • Microsoft format
  • Microsoft format with Logitech extension

Mroocheck converts these serial protocols to Amiga Mouse Port format including all the specific features like the middle (3rd and 4th) button support or high resolution. The conversion is made fully by interface microprocessor so no additional software drivers are required.

The interface start working simultaneously with computer's start so mouses could be used in the early-startup-menu (unlike the mouses connected through the serial port).

Additionally, Mroocheck interface recognizes vertical and horizontal mouse wheel movements and converts them to analog joystick signals. Mouses wheel movements are sent to Amiga via Amiga Mouse Port.



Software

MROOCHECK.DRIVER

Mroocheck.driver converts Amiga analog joysticks signals (horizontal and vertical wheels movements) from Mroocheck PC Mouse Interface to input events for input.device.

The input events generated by Mroocheck.driver are compliant with the format used by the NewMouse program (by Alessandro Zummo). This ensures the full compatibility with all the existing wheel-support software.

Wheels movements are transmitted independently of (simultaneously with) mouse movements and mouse buttons clicks.

Mroocheck allows scrolling in both directions (horizontal and vertical) even in mouses with one wheel only. Switching directions (from vertical to horizontal) in one-wheel mouses is obtained by holding the 3rd mouse button simultaneous with wheel movement.


FREEWHEEL PROGRAM

FreeWheel is a commodity which converts wheelmouse events into scrollbar movement or cursor key movements. It can also map several useful functions to the wheel button, and even a fourth button...


ADDITIONAL SOFTWARE

With the Mroocheck interface you could also use the following programs for interpreting wheel movements with the current Amiga software:

  • MuiWheel12.lha
  • MCC_Nlist0_89.lha
  • IntuiWheel10.lha
All these programs are available from Aminet.
