Adding support for scroll wheel mice..
« on: December 15, 2019, 05:05:42 AM »
Since most mice come with a scroll wheel these days would it be possible to add support for using the wheel?

I tried Newmouse and another driver with no results.  I’ll give it a shot but I really think it’s time to add support via the OS.

But then we probably need two extra disk every year just for the extra drivers.....

Are we talking usb mice or 9 pin mice (circa 1994)

if usb for NG, it's included in the usb stack already!

It’s for 9 pin mice and the 1200/4000 machines.  I used the software listed above to get my AEon USB mouse working.  Not sure what protocol my AmigaKit mouse uses....

For the amigakit one you have to download the driver for it and install the Freewheel package off of Aminet.
A4000D: Mediator 4000Di; Voodoo 3, ZorRAM 128MB, 10/100mb Ethernet, Spider 2. Cyberstorm PPC 060/50 604e/420.

I’m using Rapid Road with my Ethernet card.  I contacted AmigaKit and they fixed the download link so that should get their mouse working too.
