Exclamation P2AM : amiga/atari PS2-mouse adapter, 15eur

Yes, for 15eur you can order this adapter, there is a jumper inside to select amiga/atari mode (from the famous manufacturers of SatanDisk, and atariST sd card interface...)

Individual Computers releases their Microsys V3 probably very soon.

A few months ago, we have bought the "Micromys" design from Marko Herold. We have continued development of the C64 mouse adapter, and we'll release it under the name "Micromys V3" during the first quarter of 2008. High compatibility with PS2 mice will remain, and USB-mice that support PS2 protocol are automatically switched to that mode. The new adapter can be configured for different target systems by DIP switches:
  • C64: 1351 proportional mouse emulation with wheel-extension
  • C64: Joystick emulation
  • Amiga: 3-button mouse without drivers
  • Amiga: 3-button wheelmouse with Freewheel-driver
  • Atari ST: 2-button mouse
Micromys V3 can of course be used on other retro-systems that use a 9-pin Sub-D connector for game controllers, such as Atari 8-bit machines, Schneider, Amstrad and MSX.

AFAIK Serial -> PS/2 is just wires


PS/2 -> Serial

no, that is not the case for PS2 and serial mice... I have lots of these adapters , they don't work like that.
Sure , u can use a ps2 mouse on a serial port with them, but the mouse MUST support serial protocol, so it switches over (like the usb/ps2 adaptors)
on older 486/ealry pentiums, there is a seperate bios-like chip on the motherboard that adds ps2 mouse support. Even if the mobo has ps2 mouse header, without this chip , ps2 mice never work. (95% it is located left to the lower ISA slots) Some manufacturers even had a socket for that chip so the user can upgrade. Believe me, I have spent a silly amount of time on ps2 mice on older computers.
I am wondering IF with a simple re-wiring such adapter can work on a pc... if the serial and amiga protocols have the same signals (that I doubt)
