Hmm... Newer thought about left handed people... Should I add possibility to swap left / right button for next release?

Maybe it's an option, to use pin D2 + GND (they are next to each other on a Nano Board)
Solder a 2 pin header onto it, so it can be used as a jumper.

pinMode(2,INPUT_PULLUP);
int LeftRightJumper= digitalRead(2);

  if (LeftRightJumper == HIGH) {
    //Dont Swap Buttons;
  } 
  else {
    //Swap the Buttons;
  }
}

This way it is possible to use a jumper to permanent switch to a left-hand mouse.
With the jumper in a open position (default), a right hand mouse is selected.

I think it is better to use mouse buttons for configuration + EPROM to store the settings... I don't like jumpers that much.

At least in SymbOS you can swap left/right mouse buttons (Control Panel -> Mouse) Hannibal

With the help of NYYRIKKI, I managed to build this nice mouse adapter. Here's an impression of how it looks Big smile

The mini-USB socket in the first picture is used to update the firmware/software inside the adapter.

"Supports" is maybe a bit wrong word, but yes... Arduino can be hacked to output videosignal same way as MSX keyclick can be hacked to play samples.
