The new dynamic scrolling with the mouse wheel is a great improvement.

Just installed the latest drivers into an AUTO folder on a floppy. My STe machine booted just fine, recognizing the USB flash drive. I want to try a USB mouse soon.

Question : can I have two joysticks in the mouse/joystick ports under my keyboard and a USB mouse in NetUSBee? I'm wondering if two-player games will conflict with the USB mouse.

Great work! :D :D

It'll probably be OK. I use a regular mouse and a USB mouse at the same time. Let us know!

This should not be a problem.

I have finally gotten around to testing the mouse driver! :)

Yes, it is possible to have both the ST mouse and a USB mouse connected to the computer simultaneously. The USB mouse I used is a generic unit branded for iBuyPower. It tracks very, very fast across the screen - almost too fast.

I see people using wireless keyboards and mice. How does that work? Don't those devices need special drivers and software to synchronize the devices to the transmit/receive unit?

I also ran into my first USB storage stick that doesn't work very well. It's a SanDisk 8 GB Fit Cruizer. Amazon link below:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005F ... UTF8&psc=1

The drivers do not recognize the device upon boot up and my drive C: icon is removed from the display. I must install the icon after every reboot. All files are present though and the NetUSBee desk accessory sees the device.

Odd ... because the 32 GB version of this same device works just fine. Only problem there is all the wasted space since I can't use all 32 GB with the ST.

Do I need to reformat the 8 GB device in Windows?

Great work, guys! Your drivers and your software package here is really, really, really great and I really appreciate the work you put into this! :)

For example, a Logitech mouse/keyboard combo has one USB receiver. If we insert the receiver, it has 2 interfaces, keyboard and mouse (0 and 1). Both drivers (keyboard and mouse) accept it, so this works for combo.

To slow down the mouse, use CKBD. Perhaps I should include it in the next package, it's a freeware mouse accelerator-decelerator/keyboard manager.

Yep, my Logitech work keyboard and mouse use a single USB dongle and work fine on my Atari's, its great as on my Mega STE keyboard control key does not work, so I use my PC keyboard

Oh, so these interfaces auto-sync without needing to install manufacturer specific drivers? That's great! I may try that next. Many wireless keyboard/mouse combo kits are available for $10 - $20 so it is very tempting. Maybe the auto-sync between device and USB dongle will make more sense when I actually connect it.

Do you think it would be possible to expand the storage driver so it expands the range of drive letters available to TOS?

Hey Guys,

I have had a lot of issues with getting my USB storage to work. At first I tried with an old SanDisk 2 GB and it worked for a while on my TT, but after some time it stopped recognizing the drive. HD Drivers (10.3) failed to see it. So I tried various other USB sticks, still no luck. The other day I picked up 2 16 GB sticks, I SanDisk and the other PNY. Now the USB Utility will see them but when I try to add them to the desktop at first I would get 2 drive icons for each, the first would not show any data in it, and the second looked like it had my physical HD in it. Weird, but it showed my C,D, and E drives as folders within it. So I tried to format the 16 GB sticks and after about 10 hrs it completed, but I was not able to partition them out or see any data that I had copied from my PC. I'm at a total loss. I have the drivers installed in the correct order in the AUTO folder, but to no avail, none are working. Oddly enough one of the older USB drives when in the NETUSBEE on startup will lock up the system and not even load to the desktop.

Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Eric

Are you using the NetUSBee's network function while using USB under TOS? STING network drivers are not compatible with the USB ones.

Some people reported malfunction because dirty contacts viewtopic.php?f=27&t=31632#p368602

Some people reported here issues with some TTs rom-port, but I don't have more information about it, and I don't know what this hardware problem could be. Is the NetUSBee's network part working right?

Galvez,

I do have the network drivers installed in the AUTO folder, but I am not using them at this time. I will remove them and reply back. As for dirty contacts I will also try cleaning with is IPA and see if that helps. I can tell you that I am using the older version of the TT motherboard. It's the original with the 32Mhz add on card for the 16Mhz motherboards. I know that the TT has a tricky system for determinint the revision, but I know that I have the gold top PGA style 68030 chip.

As for the networking portion, I was trying to get the USB functions working first before I worked on the network stuff. I will reply in the next day or so with the results.

Thanks!

Eric

Suggestions for the mouse driver.

My mouse is not recognized after booting once every 3 or 4 times. A reboot solves the issue usually. Could we have a hot-key that would rescan or reset the driver after booting to prevent the need for rebooting the system?

Also, the mouse scroll wheel is a great feature, but it seems to queue up the scrolling, so for example, when the scroll wheel is not being rolled, the window contents continue scrolling until the event queue is emptied. Could the queue
be emptied after the scroll wheel is not actively being rolled? This would allow other window manipulations to be performed or other user activities.

Great driver!

The mouse driver has been updated recently. I need to update the package. I've attached it, if you can try it.

As for the continued scrolling issue, I took note, I'll look at it later.

Thanks, I'll try it out. And thanks for taking the scroll wheel queueing into consideration! :cheers:

Doesn't unplugging and re-plugging the mouse help? (Of course, under TOS you have to load USBTOOL.ACC to allow hot-plugging of USB devices.)

I use BIGDOS to access bigger flash drives, it has to be loaded before netusbee drivers. I don't think usbtool is able initialize mouse, if it was not recognized during boot. I guess the problem is the voltage on USB port of the netusbee.

Working good so far. I'll keep an eye on it. Thanks for the update.

I noticed the binary is around 4 times bigger than the previous version. Are there some new features added?

Hmm, are you suggesting it could be related to my power supply or electrolytics? That's interesting.

Mouse wheel working on all mice, extra buttons on mice work (page up/page down and wheel pan left/right).

This was possible because the mouse driver is now using report protocol instead of boot protocol, more features can be accessed.

That's an impressive update. I'll try another mouse and see if it helps with the non-responsive issue. Wish there was a way to determine if it was hardware at the netusbee/mouse level or the software driver itself. Kind of hard to tell at this point.

Feature request for the mouse driver: My scroll wheel can be depressed for an additional button. I hear the click when I press it, so I assume the driver processes it somehow. Could it be made to simulate a double-click? That would be very helpful inside applications and file-selectors, etc. Cheers!

This is equivalent to a mouse third button. At the moment, it is assigned to ENTER. So in a dialog, it should activate the default button.

Ok, makes sense. Now, that leads to the question is there a way I can change it to double-click?
