Mouse Systems PCjr Mouse!

Postby OldComputerGuy » Sat Aug 26, 2017 3:36 am

Got it off ebay. Mostly CIB except doesn't have the PC Paint floppy but that was released as PD software a while back so it's not too hard to find online. Plugs into the serial port and draws power from the lightpen port. Comes with glass mousepad with gridlines on it so the mouse can see where it's going. LoL.

I'm assuming it is the same mouse shown here.

I've got one of the 3 button "normal" connector (as in can work on the regular PCs) and it's pretty nice. Otherwise identical except there's an AC adapter to power it.

I found a copy of PC Paint Plus 2.0 on ebay and grabbed it. :D

I have since found a copy of PC Paint. I think the version is 1.09, so earlier than the PC Paint Plus I found earlier and what would likely have been included with the mouse package.
