Well I thought now having a USB Eiffel 3 I could use my Wireless Atari ST Mouse viewtopic.php?f=18&t=1730

Well unfortunately that wireless USB block needs a bit more intelligence than PS/2 to USB conversion. It does not work with the Eiffel 3 over USB.

Oh well back to using it on my Mac :)

I "suspect" someone may be doing a mouse remake (case) so maybe it could be adapted for a proper wireless mouse board eventually.

Actually that might not be too hard to do
