If memory serves, for the EZMouse I used the middle-mouse button pin in output mode, and multiplexed the extra signals similar to how a Megadrive pad works: with the MMB pin in a low state, the wheel button is mapped to the left button, the fourth button, if present, is mapped to the right button, and wheel events are mapped to the lowest bit of each mouse counter.

Indeed, i'm pretty sure the Mroocheck and PS2m and derivatives all use the MMB pin for this as well.

No protocol. IBrowse scrolls the window when you hold the middle mouse button and move the mouse.

Freewheel has some support to force scrolling on MUI toolbars by IDCMP events (mouse scrolling).

I just tried and here it works. as soon as i run FreeWheel scrolling works in iBrowse.

Note that i'm using a USB Mouse over Poseidon + the v50 input.device from Ralph Schmidt.

However this should work with any FreeWheel compatible mouse driver (Cocolino/PS2m have them).

I know for a fact that reading wheel on USB side of mouse and emulate FreeWheel (hold middle mouse and move up/down) on Amiga port side works, have it working in WildPort since January 2015. Also nailed stable CD32 pad emulation around the same time. Not that it matters much as long as there is no product released.

Hi, vroom6sri. Yes, I'm using Freewheel. I've made some tests with Cocolino software and noticed that it registers some kind of activity when middle button is pressed while wheel is moved, but nothing that I could use for scrolling.

Another problem is, wheel button is already assigned for mode selection and sometimes mouse speed changes when the button is pressed. However, I could not yet understand exactly how this works.

Except for that limitation, I really like the little adapter! My old serial mouse was making me crazy

I got SUM Keyboard adapter on my A600 with Vampire, and I love it.

A few programs doesnt seem to like the combination;

Hippoplayer
Protracker 362
THX

I should add that I have disconnected/removed my floppydrive, so the USB cable can fit thru there. Sadly the USB cable is too short to be dragged thru the RF Modulator hole in the case.

Anyone had similar issues? I guess I should test if reinstalling the floppydrive will fix this crashing/freezing...

Reinstalled the Floppydrive, and Hippoplayer stopped crashing/freezing the computer.

Protracker 362 and THX still freeze the computer, altho its not really of any consequence since I dont really use them...
