P2AM -- PS/2 mouse for your 16-bit Atari/Amiga

Dear Amiga users,

we have some nice stuff for your beloved machines. We've got tired by fixing old Atari/Amiga mices, "spamming" recent Atari/Amiga dealers / hardware makers if they really are out of stock with Atari/Amiga mices and/or converters for connecting some recent (PS/2, USB) ones.

Fortunately (for you we have made a decision to produce own batch of hardware. What is this all about? Yes, we're going to produce completely new batch of PS/2 adapters for every Atari/Amiga 16-bit computer! You can use any PS/2 mouse and connect it to your Atari/Amiga. No need for soldering or changing the original case -- everything fits into nice little box connected by thin cable directly to your mouse port.

In case you already owns our previous piece of hardware -- SatanDisk -- you're aware of the fact we mean it seriously, you can count on quality, good support and communication and mainly -- damn fair prize! One PS/2 converter (we call it P2AM -- as PS/2 to Atari/Amiga Mouse) will cost you only 15 Euros! Compare that prize to PeST or any other PS/2 converter...

And finally, you can ofcourse buy (nearly) any of that fancy USB->PS/2 converters and connect USB mouse to your Atari/Amiga in this way!

Since the SatanDisk production we gained also a lot of experiences and got quite a feedback from you, users, we've completely remade our "business websystem", you're going to be damn surprised how friendly and professional looking is now

One last note: there wont be pre-order phase. So please take a very good look, when is the deadline for payment shipping. After this date we can't guarantee you will be able to buy anything. And of course, please, tell all your Atari/Amiga friends about this, you wouldn't believe how very late we received some requests for SatanDisk availability... be careful this time!

Hey, cool that you do stuff for Amiga

I already have a Cocolino - but might be interested if it's better than Cocolino. Cocolino has this strange (short) delay, which messes up mouse games. Also, in games that have no sensitivity (dpi) setting, which is true for 99% of the games, optical mice have way too high DPI - which makes them very hard to play.

On a side note, it would be interesting if it supports 3 buttons like some Amiga mice back in the day.

For DPaint and anything running under the OS I think it will work excellently - although Prefs in Workbench 2.0 should have a setting below the lowest, still very high sensitivity at "1". Perhaps there are drivers for this?

Sorry for asking so much, just didn't find this info on the webpage. And I think you are too modest - make a great product and don't be afraid to make money off it

Hello Photon,

I'm afraid this device is nowhere as good as your ps/2 adpater. This device is really simple, I'm even not sure if mouse wheel works. It's just simple (and cheap solution when your amiga/atari mouse is no more usable and you don't want to invest big money into some professional solutions.

Anyway, we welcome if you decide to buy one from us

Just saying if you made it better than Cocolino, you could and should charge more for it. If it's better and you charge less than for Cocolino, people (and myself) would stop buying Cocolino and buy yours.
