Mouster USB to DB9 adapter

Recommended Posts

This seems like an interesting device:

A very small USB adapter that takes any USB mouse (not only PS2) and turns signals into DB9 for the joystick port.

Works with some USB game controllers too. Wonder if it would be any good on the TI-99/4a.  

 

Unfortunately firmware source code doesn’t seem to be available and the price is perhaps a bit steep (25 euros), but still acceptable.

That looks pretty nice! I just got a PS/2 adapter for my Atari ST - this would have been better if only because it's so much smaller. ;)

Likely it requires power on the joystick port like this did
