This ingenious little doodad is said to work with the following computer systems:
- Amiga 1000, 2000, 500, ... you get the idea.
- Atari ST/STe series
- Atari Falcon
- Atari 65XE/130XE/800XE
- Atari 600XL/800XL
- Atari 5200
I have not test this yet, but can't wait to see if that's indeed true on our Amigas. Retrohax says it should work with nearly every USB mouse you throw at the thing, but to avoid power-hungry LED versions as there likely wouldn't be enough power for those.It also supports nearly all USB flash drives (config dump and upload), Playstation 4 controller, and nearly every USB mouse.
The thing has been in development for a while, which I'd been following closely. The firmware is still in very active development as more devices are supported over time.
And guys the thing is small.
I ordered mine off the Ebay store. Retrohax was super cool and immediately reached out to make sure I was cool with a possible wait of beyond 2 months. I said I was in no hurry.
It arrived in two weeks! Sometimes things just work.
Now, when you get it my understanding is you have do a little fiddling for USB drives to work. Doesn't sound like a big deal, but something to read the docs and work through.
Something else I read - which I've not confirmed (I just got it in the mail) - is this thing can actually support some USB Wacom tablets, too! Holy smoke!
Lots to learn and experiment with here. If you have a MouSTer already, I'd be very curious about your own experiments and tips.
