Nah, It will go to the bin. I have a lot of those keyboards with touch surface.

The Microsoft ones aren't even recognised by Entermice.
I corrected initialization of the Microsoft IntelliMouse.
Please check if new firmware is better.

Ok Pear, I will test it tomorrow.

_---------

To Endi from the Entermice Magyar thread:

Tim Box claimed he only sold about 100 Boxsoft interfaces. Watching from the actual future of that years, I think because it was unknown by the fragmented user base how good product with all its faults it was.

On the other side everybody know at that time the benefits of an Exdos interface without even seeing one working....

Wow, good to see this progress here. I haven't been around here since some time unfortunately.

Is it still possible to be added to the order-list? I would like to take 3 of them.

Of course I want to support it in SymbOS. Will be back on the Enterprise in the middle of november again :)

Now I can offer you my own one.
From the first batch I have not more. Unless someone resigns.
The next batch will be available in mid-December.

Tests underway, but I hope that coming to an end.
Now we just refine the joystick emulation mode. At this moment already the third version.
It is difficult to simultaneously provide fluid movements, adequate sensitivity and precision.
If we do not find any more bugs in the firmware and testers will be pleased with the joystick emulation, then I would begin shipping interfaces at next week.

Would it be possible to make a simple extension for connecting 4 joysticks to this?
There is no need at the moment for such thing (no simultaneous 4-player games) but maybe in near future;P
Just asking...

Technically yes. Why not ? But PCB will be bigger and need to think over construction.

Oh...Sorry:(
I thought that it would need "just" a branched cable with for each joystick port (with a little pcb "magic") and some added code to the chip...

Nevermind then...

You can theoretically plug up to six one-button joysticks to the Enterprise directly, only adapting the ports. You donĀ“t need Entermice to do that.

Of course you only can plug switch type ones(digital) without autofire or other electronic circuits. Only straight switches, because the commons are +5v and the directions and fire leads are 0V, opposite than standard.
