Hi Kev - I get an error "J Invalid I/O device, 403:1" when I start the game using a PS2 mouse. Still a very good game with a joystick.
That's strange. I tested it on both Cspect and the Next itself. I also tested two mice on the Next. one was an actual ball-based ps/2 mouse, the other a usb mouse using a usb/ps2 adapter.
What os are you running? I have been using 2.07k (latest official distro) on both cspect and next.
Just curious to see if can pinpoint whether its a particular os/firmware or something else...
Thanks for the response Kev. Im running 2.07k on an N-Go with a ps2 optical mouse. Just for reference, the mouse works with Xeno brigade and Next War. They run form the .nex extension in case that makes a diference from running from .bas.
Hmmm, wonder if there's a difference with the N-Go and Next for that particular driver? I am using the Next mouse driver that comes with 2.07k...
It is possible those games are reading the Kempston ports and doing their own thing - I originally did that in basic (I do use it on the title screen to read the mouse button) but the mouse driver was more efficient, faster and, eh accurate 😂
Thanks for the heads up on that.
Actually, a good test to see if its a driver thing is to load the basic demo for the mouse. Its under the /demos/mouse folder
Ah, I wonder - are you running the game from a partitioned sd card? (ie. you have an extra drive (like D:))
If so, the problem is that the game assumes its running from the system drive. I went and updated the game download here - essentially just adding the C drive letter to the file path used for the driver, so it should load the driver properly.
