Cocolino works with cd32.

I just decided I should try to play some mouse driven games with my cd32 off of cds, plugged in my optical mouse-usb to ps2 - cocolino - joystick/mouse switch combination without thinking it through...

Then after playing for half an hour I suddenly realized: Wait a minute! Cocolino is supposed to require a driver disk installation before it can work! This should not work here! Yet it does! Why?

The driver is for adding mouse wheel support as well as additional buttons should you're mouse have them and perhaps also allowing higher dpi modes.

Okay... well, when I installed classicwb on my Amiga 1200, I could not move the mouse cursor at all before installing the driver disk. Also on my Amiga 1200 I can not for example use both mouse buttons to enter early startup menu with the cocolino. It seemed to me like the mouse only does anything after the driver loads there.

So you could control the pointer before Classic wb was installed ? The adapter shouldnt need anything installing to actually use. This way you can actually use it to install the driver which unlocks extra features

No, I used winuae to install classic wb. Then found that I can not move the mouse when booting with real amiga. Then I spent an hour searching where the heck I put that usb cf card reader now and after finding it I then installed cocolino drivers back on winuae, then again booted classicwb and then the mouse started working. (lot of screwdriver action and cf card hassle involved there )

Pretty much the same thing happened with both my desktop and tower amiga so I assumed this thing really needs the driver or nothing happens. Weird, huh?
