New member here. I FINALLY own an Apple IIe. When I was a kid back in the early 1980's I always wanted an Apple II but it wasn't in the family budget. After almost 36 years I finally own one. I became a vintage computer collector several years back as it fuels my nostalgia or the early days when I learned to code and hack. The unit I bought on eBay does not have a mouse and the M0100 mice on eBay are way over priced. So I am setting out to build my own adapter to use a PS2 mouse on an Apple IIe.
I did find a guy in NZ (http://roger.geek.nz/mouse.html) selling an adapter for about $28 USD but I thought I'd give it a go first; however, I am having a heck of a time finding pinouts and data about the Apple mouse card so I can begin to look at how to wire this up and if I need to draft any circuit in between or use a microcontroller to convert any impluses.
If anyone has any guidance to assist in building this adapter, it is most welcome.
