« on: September 05, 2015, 06:07:39 PM »

- microswitched buttons
- compatible with A500, A500+, A600*, A1200, A1500, A2000, A3000, A4000, A4000T.
- scrollwheel and tilt functions can be mapped in Freewheel software

* Optional adapter is required for A600 use available here.

Nice!  So this is basically the same as your regular Boing Ball mouse, only with a direct 9-pin connector, so I could use one without my current daisy-chain of mouse-to-USB-to-PS/2-adapter-to-Cocolino-to-Amiga?

Good deal, I'll take three of them as soon as they're available in black.  ;)

I have the USB version of this mouse, it's very comfortable and looks the part.

The scrollwheel support on classic is a big plus. :-)

Nice! I'll be getting a few of them. Now if we could get a well made analog Joystick I'm set.

You didn't like the Arcade Evolution?  I always preferred actual "joysticks" (i.e., pistol-grip style like the TAC30), but it's not bad.  I've used my AE a bit and haven't broken it yet.  ;)

I see it's a 1000 DPI mouse, but does the adapter scale the DPI down, or will I get a pointer 4-5 times the speed of the older Amiga mice?

It's not a problem in Workbench, but games usually just assume you're using the original 200 or so DPI mouse.

That joystick looks to be a switched type, Digital. Operation Stealth and others allow you to use an analog type stick, Continuously variable. Much better for flight. I have an old Quikshot but it's getting very sloppy and won't stay centered.

Good point, I'd like to know too (for playing Cannon Fodder).
