mouse adapters

Looking into getting a mouse adapter for my 1200, because my tank mouse is starting to not work reliably, and I'd like something a little more comfortable..

I want a PS/2>>Amiga mouse doodad preferably with a trailing lead on it for easier use.

anyone still sell PS/2 ami mouse adapters still?

I know you want a PS/2 adapter but did you also consider a USB adapter like the Ryś. The advantage is that it can be used with all kind of joysticks unlike the PS/2 adapter which has only one purpose.

The Ryś looks nice, but USB is way way overkill for what I'm going to use it for, and I don't need that much functionality besides basic mouse support.

Probably gonna buy one off ebay, and try source a 4in(10cm) DB9 extension cable to go with it.

This is what you need:

Cheap and works with any PS/2 compliant mouse (you need an adapter for PS/2 compliant mice that don't have a USB connector)
