amiga mouse right click mod

i bought a mouse today which seemed like a 1351 at first sight but when i got home and tried it on sequencer, i realized it was an amiga mouse. it works ok except the right click, i have added another button on my c64 which has cables soldered directly to f5  to act like a right click. smile

my question is: is there a way to modify my amiga mouse to work with right click?
or at least, can i do it like, i'll solder a cable between the button i added later and the pin of the joyport which receives the signal from the right click? if so, which pin is for the right click?

AlphA already did it, again wink He puts a 22K resistor between pin 7/9 of the joy port.

I didn't pay much attention on this part of his mod but now actually I think about building a 'resistored' adapter cable to plug in between my C64 and the optical amiga mouse I got big_smile

Re: amiga mouse right click mod

well is there any way to do this mod to the mouse, not to the c64? the last time i opened to mod my c64, i had great TROUBLE fitting everything inside the case (such as a little gamepad system that's shorted to joy port2 and an extra buttons horted to f5, for the times i didn't have a mouse and don't want to carry a big joystick everywhere)

Re: amiga mouse right click mod

Yeah, you can build a SUB-D extension cable and put the resistor inside one of the SUB-D shells? Leaving both, C64 and mouse, untouched...

YEAH i just put a 22k resistor between pins 7 and 9 in my amiga mouse, and the right click works flawlessly!

Very nice smile do you still have to select amiga-mouse in the 'settings' menu, or does it work in 1351-mode so you can hold down 'C='-key while loading Sequencer to autoselect mouse-mode ??

Re: amiga mouse right click mod

The resistor mod just enables the right button, it doesn't transform an amiga mouse to a 1351.
But do you still  need to select the "right mouse button" from the menu options? Guess so...

How about the "SHUT DOWN COMPUTER" menu option - it doesn't save the mouse settings, right?

Sounds reasonable... hehe. i guessed the only difference in fact was the right-click issue, but it was a too optimistic guess tongue
