The mouSTer is a device that allows connecting any USB (not ps/2 protocol type only) mouse to as many old computers as possible.
The project aims to be as universal as possible, meaning, with time, it will support as many retro computers as electronically possible.

Firmware is in constant development.
At the moment the following retro platforms are fully supported:
- Commodore 64/128
- MEGA65 https://mega65.org/
- Atari ST/STe series
- Atari Falcon
- Atari 400/800/XE/XL
- Atari 2600/5200
- Amiga 500/600/1200 as well as Amiga 1000/2000/3000/4000
- Amiga CD32 – Original PAD emulation fully supported
- Commodore VIC-20
- ZX Spectrum via Kempston Interface
mouSTer can emulate:
- Atari mouse
- Amiga mouse (including wheel support)
- Commodore C1351 mouse (GEOS mouse)
- Trackball (experimental)
- new, non yet existing devices 🙂
Supported USB Devices:
- ALL USB mice
- literally ALL
- ALL USB Gampads
- literally ALL or almost ALL(Bluetooth dongles will not work)
- ALL USB Joysticks
- USB joysticks are not so popular, so mouSTer has not been tested with too many.
It also supports nearly all USB flash drives (config dump and upload), For obvious reasons, all those mouse devices with lots of LEDs and additional electronics might not work due to the poor current output of DB9 ports in old computers. Technically mouSTer supports these devices, but there won’t be enough juice to power them.
- Wireless mice with USB RF dongles
- Sony DS3 (wired)
- Sony DS4(wired)
- Sony DS5(wired)
- Xbox360(wired+wireless dongle)
Future support is still a work in progress. We aim to support all retro PCs (DB9 socket) through an add-on that supplies external power and Macintosh machines – ADB.
