FAQ:
Q: I'd like to use my optical mouse in joystick mode. However, this doesn't seem to work.
A: Today's optical mice are doing a self-test on power-up and do not pass on a mouse button that is pressed during power-on. This will probably prevent many mouse types from being used as a joystick with Micromys V3. Since a mouse is not a good joystick replacement anyway, we don't think that this is a major drawback. For the best gaming feeling, we recommend a Competition Pro Retro joystick.

Q: Can I use the Micromys V3 PS2 mouse adapter for using a PS/2 mouse on an MSX computer and if so, how?
A: The MSX mouse seems to be using a totally different protocol that is NOT supported by Micromys V3. It can only confirmed that it could work for joystick emulation mode. In essence, you will only be able to use the mouse as a joystick-replacement, but not like a proportional mouse.
