Yes, but I'm a very demanding beta-tester....

Tests in progress, and I have such a timid question.
How much you ultimately need EnterMice interfaces ?
A second batch I plan of 30 pieces.
It's enough ?

PS.
Zozo, can I ask you to translate into Hungarian topic ?

Probably you could list the final names whose "order" is accepted now (and you have now enough EnterMice for them),
and the others will know, they have to sign now into the second batch.

Or we resign now, again, everybody ?

Just a question: would it be cheaper (postal costs) to send more interfaces within one package? Eg for people lives not too far from each other, and can meet to hand the stuffs out :)

Accidentally we discovered a fairly serious error in the design of the Enterprise.
Totally do not mind if nothing is connected to the ports Control 1 and Control 2.
However, that EnterMice uses them.
It's about interference KB0..KB9 ports from keyboard.
If at one time is pressed only one key, then there is nothing wrong with (first figure).
However, if you press two keys simultaneously in the same column, the signal from the selected line will be transferred also to the line of second key (figure two).
In the Enterprise missing diodes separating the rows of the keyboard :(
Electrically nothing will happen (LS145 decoder has open collector outputs), but causes errors when reading from the external ports Control 1 and Control 2.
It turned out that my security idea on the event of malfunction LS145 decoder, only worsens the situation.
I have to removed this fragment to "hide" these effects. However, in order to eliminate the cause should be within the Enterprise add diodes to each row of keys to press more than one key does not cause "collisions" (third figure).

At the moment the mouse compatibility is high, but I think it can be improved tweaking some the Entermice firmware.

The first picture is the mice that works with both Entermice and  Arduino projects.

The second group only works with the Arduino. The Microsoft ones aren't even recognised by Entermice. The surface is, but the green light(mouse recognised) blinks slowly and it only moves the pointer alternately.

The Logitech trackball has the three spare buttons and wheel, and it has served me good to modify the driver.

But I'm very interested on make work the Microsoft Intellimouse as with this exactly mouse where introduced the three spare buttons and the command that activate them.



Edit: from the first picture only the trackball and the Memorex(Harry Potter logo) are optical.

The surface was cut from one of this estrange keyboards and this one works, so the other can be discarded. Another Logitech optical mouse running.

Try to increase the time mouseComTout.
Some mouses work slower tha the maximum specification.

Ok, but first I have to learn how to compile it.

Connecting mice is easier...

Blinking green LED means more than 3 times PS/2 mouse communication errors. After that mouse is reset.
