Rys Mk II

Rys Mk II USB Adapter

Amiga Interface for USB Mice and Joysticks

Rys Mk II is an interface enabling you to connect mice and joysticks/gamepads with USB interface to your Amiga. The hardware is based upon a 16-bit Microchip microcontroller, the software side features an internal USB stack to communicate with the USB HID devices (mice or game controllers).

Rys's installation procedure consists of simply plugging it into the correct port (i.e. mouse or joystick port) of your computer and connecting a mouse or game controller to it. The adapter automatically detects whether a mouse or game controller is plugged in. There is no need to install additional driver software. Rys features three emulation modes, one for mice, one for gamepads and another one for joysticks.

The mouse emulation comes with three user-definable tracking speed options. This feature allows matching just the right speed for the connected device. All preferences are saved to the built-in EEPROM, thanks to which the device is already configured the next time you reconnect it.

When Rys finds a game controller (i.e. joystick or pad), it automatically switches into a pad mode. If a joystick is connected, the operating mode should be set to joystick mode by simultaneously pressing the joystick keys 9 and 10. If the command succeeds, it will be confirmed by the blinking of the status indicator LED.

Rys also comes with a "Bootloader" function allowing future firmware upgrades. (This functions requires a USB cable and a PC running Windows.) Please note that some Amiga models require an adapter to connect the Rys interface. (The A600 is such a case, there is simply not enough space around its mouse/joystick ports.)
