Jookie wrote:Hey people, would you like to have also a native keyboard / mouse (and possibly joystick) support? You would plug one more cable into CosmosEx, the other end would go to the keyboard connector (instead of original keyboard), and you would be able to use the connected USB mouse / keyboard (and possibly joystick)? This is possible with a little change in the design, I know some of you would like it (2 guys contacted me and said that this should be done in HW ), it would work with games and demos (unlike the emulated keyboard and mouse sent through ACSI).

Yes, it will behave just like that.

Sorry, no PSX controller support as there isn't a PSX interface on the device - just get a game controller with USB connector instead.

Normal HDDs and their replacements (e.g. UltraSatan) send raw sectors to the ST and the ST handles file systems, files, directories, and so on.
CosmosEx has this mode too, but it can also access the media in translated mode, that means that the ST will not handle the file system directly, but will instead leave that to the device, and this enables you to use e.g. shared folder from Windows just like another drive under plain TOS, with good transfer speed, and no need for another networking software if all you need is this sharing data with PC. But CosmosEx will also have a driver for the network, so it will also replace a network card for any usage, not just file sharing (this still has to be done), it has also a floppy emulator, and will work as a keyboard emulator, too
