Micromys V5 is the long-awaited successor to Micromys V4. Our approach to a PS2 mouse adapter is now taken to more computers than before: Supporting Amiga, Atari ST/STe/Falcon, VIC-20 and the Atari 8-bit series with a total of nine different modes of operation, Micromys V5 is probably the most versatile mouse adapter on the market.
 
Just like it's predecessor, Micromys V5 uses our known-good automatic computer recognition without the need for DIP switches. The adapter figures out most computer environments automatically, and choosing a mode of operation is done by holding down one or more mouse buttons during power-up.
 
Depending on the computer that Micromys V5 is connected to, two or more of the following modes of operation are available:
 
Amiga wheel mode:
Without drivers, this is a 2-button mode. Wheel and middle-mouse button can be activated with our driver. No further connections to the Amiga are required: Wheel and middle mouse button data is all transferred through the same mouse port, and the joystick port remains free. 
 
Amiga 3-button mode without drivers:
This is a completely driverless mode of operation. Programs that support hte "native" middle mouse button (for example Directory Opus) will work without any special additional software.
 
Atari ST/STe/Falcon:
The Atari ST uses two buttons only. Middle mouse button and wheel are ignored in this mode.
 
1351 emulation;
The Commodore 1351 proportional mouse has become the de-facto standard for a proportional mouse on the C64. Introduced with the GEOS operating system, it was quickly adopted by other programs. The popular music programs MESSIAH and Prophet64 work best in this mode. Micromys even adds to this standard by supporting the mouse wheel of a PS2 mouse.
 
Joystick emulation:
Even if a program is not written for a mouse at all, this mode of operation can make a mouse available to joystick-only programs.
