The MiSTer does not track mouse movements with a real Amiga ball mouse connected to the Retronic Design adapter into USB.

But why use on old amiga mouse?
Using classic DB9 joysticks is different, because it is a completely different feel. It is quite hard to play some games like Decathlon or Summer Games using a thumbstick controller. Joysticks have a total different feel than p.e. an xbox controller.
But I don't see any difference in using a classic mouse over a modern USB mouse?

It's just my opinion - you may have other vision of course.

Probably standard USB serial link on ESP32 can be used - i just don't know if it will add too much overhead to poll the joysticks behind the serial link.
just would like to give you all a short update (after a long time) - well: IT'S ALIVE
For anybody interested in doing it by it's own: https://github.com/THaase71/USB_HUB_DB9.
I'll update the page with BOM etc. within the next days ....
