Issues with Mouse
« on: November 29, 2019, 04:11:48 PM »
I'm installing Mac OS 9.2.2 that I downloaded from this site. It boots fine and everything works until the drive setup and readme appear then my mouse cursor goes down to the bottom of the screen and will not move from there. The buttons work and the left/right axis is registering, but the up/down axis is not. Can anyone help me with this problem?

Ok... I'll test my mind reading skills!

You downloaded and are installing 'OS9 for unsupported eMac' on your Mac Plus that you found in the attic. You also have a blutooth 12 button super rollerball mouse/ foot controller that worked fine on your Atari ST but it's freezing when you try using it for your install... How'd I do? ;D  I know...I need to work on it!

Hey there paulsmith7! Welcome aboard! There are a lot of knowledgeable OS9 peeps around these parts that would be more than happy to help out but I'd bet it would make it a lot easier if you provided some detailed info on your install like... What OS 9 version? What mouse? What computer?  ;D
