Amiga Mouse Switch: An automatic mouse-/joystick-switch

Published 29.03.2021 - 10:43 by osz

The GitHub user Tebl recently published his solution for an automatic switch between a joystick and a mouse in his GitHub repository. Tebl describes the problem that many of us will be familiar with: You want to play a game with two people, but the mouse is often required in the first port during the boot process so that you can only change the plug later, after the boot process. If you then want to start another game with two players, the mess of cables starts all over again.

His approach provides for an adapter connected to port 1, to which the joystick and mouse are connected. The respective device is activated when the joystick or mouse button is pressed. No more mess of cables, it's that simple. The case is also elegantly resolved, provided that one can speak of a case here. An extra circuit board is manufactured in the same size, but without any conductor tracks, which is then fixed over the electronic components using nylon screws, nuts and spacers.

You can find the detailed and illustrated GitHub repository here: https://github.com/tebl/Amiga-Mouse-Switch
