Pinout

The following table is still under construction:

9 GND (Row 6) Mouse X (POTX) YMove unused (POTX) /Button 2, RMB /Button 1, RMB (POTY) ? GND /Button 1, RMB (POTX) RI (unused)

(*1) Mouse works in first port only

(*2) Shown is pinout as used by the AMX Mouse, which is a "joystick emulator" mouse. Respective GND line is pulled low to select the correct row (always row 9 for AMX Mouse).

(*3) Extra buttons provided by Micromys

(*4) PC serial mice works completely different than the other devices listed here

(*5) NEOS Mouse originally was made for the MSX and then rewired for use with the C-64. originally the LMB is connected to pin 6 (FIRE) which is also used for strobe out - making the button unusable on C-64. It was likely done so it can still work in Joystick mode.
