Martin, thank you so much! Now that I have UPURS for my Master 128, my world is complete again! Outstanding piece of kit, just like Elk EUP 8) To celebrate, here's a piccy that I drew in AMX Super Art and transferred across to the PC to test the new cable out.

Just to let you know that there is a new PD game available for download on AET in the British IBM series.

As with everything I bung out there, if you want it on a free physical 3.5" floppy, give me a shout <3

Re: Seeking repair help!

Stuart I think I have an AMX mouse somewhere, but it's likely in storage :( However, the principles are not too hard to understand. There are two signals for left / right, and two signals for up/down. I don't know what AMX called these signals, so I will call them X1, X2, Y1 and Y2. So when you mov...

Re: Seeking repair help!

Ah no, the AMX mouse is the old style mouse from the 80's that plugs straight into the User Port. I bought the smallymouse usb adapter as a backup after the AMX mouse started to play up the latest time, so i dont think that has affected the functionality of the User Port itself. I don't have another...

Re: Broken New AP5 Fixed & Electron Mouse testing

SmallyMouse2 doesn't require a PS/2 compatible mouse - it has real USB support. Any mouse should work, even wireless ones. The only hardware reason SmallyMouse wouldn't work with something (assuming the connections are correct) is power - USB requires 5V. The interface to the computer is basically ...
