September 2009 - Just found out this page was spammed with viagra ads and other stuff. Cleaned the database and really disabled data entry (the HTML form was hidden, but the php code was still active). Also "antispammed" contributors' email addresses.
15 july 2002 - I have removed the form to add any new info, because I don't have enough time to take care of this page (it didn't really needed that much attention, but anyway...) and because the new mroocheck.driver will probably render some of this information obsolete, and I don't want to go through the hassle of updating all this :-}. Also, I'm no longer a mroocheck user since almost one year. This page won't change anymore. Thank you for coming :-).
22 december 2000 - (this is old news but..) Apparently with my mouse and
the current driver, it is just impossible to get left wheel movements correctly.
I mailed Elbox a long time ago, but got no answer. They must be busy talking with
the P96 guys I guess.. (ah aaaaaaahh)
Reduced the table font size, changed some colours (I know they suck anyway ;-)); added some info (signaled by [new]).
04 october 2000 - There is a new Mroocheck.driver available, with more parameters to play with.. I did not manage yet to get the left wheel movements with my mouse, but I'll try again. ;)
First, see Mroocheck.driver v1.5 ReadMe. Be sure to register as explained in the readme, so that you get new versions of the driver when they are released.
My experience with Picasso96 and an A4Tech(-like) 4D Mouse model WWW-5:
In order for the two wheels to work perfectly, AGA must be in 15kHz (the ENV variable
"Picasso96/AmigaVideo" must be set to "15kHz") and you must run Mroocheck.driver like
At least that's the case on my system (PAL).
If AGA is in 31kHz, running Mroocheck.driver with FREQ=31 is not sufficient : LEFT
wheel movements are recognised as DOWN movements; DOWN is also frequently triggered
instead of UP.
Using FREQ=32 improves a lot the recognition of UP wheel movements. But LEFT wheel still doesn't work.
The driver produces strange results when it is run in the WBStartup drawer (no matter what STARTPRI is set to) or in the user-startup : RMB does not work or is triggered randomly/continuously, and wheel down movements are sent continuously. It does work when run after the boot or at the end of the startup-sequence, just before EndCli.
[new] I *guess* that the problem happens when the driver is loaded before P96 sets the AGA output to 31kHz...? (that is to say, before the WB is open, probably)
Mouse movements are sent about 25-30 times per second, not 50 times like it is with a real Amiga mouse. [new] So the pointer is jerky.
[new] Here is the explanation sent to me by FreeWheel's author, Alastair M. Robinson :
You mentioned the Mroocheck only appearing to report about 25 times a second instead of the Amiga's 50: This isn't really Mroocheck's fault - the problem is that some idiot chose a baud rate of only 1200 for PC mice - so for a wheel mouse (which has to report 4 bytes per event), you can't get more than 30 reports a second.
Thanks, Alastair ;-)
