I came across a mouse that had been tested on an Amiga 2000. Will I be able to use this on a C64 if I purchase it?

They have the same connectors, so why not?

There are two types of c64 mice afaik and neither of them are the same as an amiga mouse iirc. What do you want to use them with? GEOS?

The mice are not swappable since there is a few adaptors who gives the ability to use PS/2 mice on Amiga AND C64/128 (the same device), just flicking a switch.

If there is a need to flick a selection switch, it's logical to think the Amiga and C64 are not fully compatible. :|

@ rkauer

I never had the opportunity to own a C64 before, but looking at some photos I saw that the joystick/mouse connectors are the same as in the Amigas. Maybe the internal connections are different I pressume. :?

I think heather posted recently about a mouse interface she purchased for her C64. Maybe she can answer this better.

My review of the Micromys Mouse Adapter can be found here. It really is a great device and I would highly recommend it.

Take care!

Heather
