Build yourself a MSX Mouse adapter:
PS/2 mouse to FMTowns/MSX interface by Anikun.
Build the ps2 to fm-towns mouse interface. JP Grobler did that and it works on his MSX in Meridian 3 and “windows 2000”- msx version.
Replace the MA723 diodes with 1N4148 . You can use a 16F84A/20p
Add a reset button to the PIC – the original documentation mentions the mouse pointer becoming unstable? this should solve the problem.
Cost : PIC 3.5E , rest 1E, 1 hour of soldering, cutting etc.

Convert a PC mouse to a standard MSX mouse:
Re Mouse and Nice Mouse
The Bytewizards: Victor van Acht, his brother and Albert Huitsing build a device to convert a PC mouse (serial) to a standard MSX. The device was sold in the Netherlands as Remouse and repackaged as Nice Mouse available from Mirisoft in Italy.
Here you will find the circuit diagram and PCB layout,
the assembler source (dutch documents) of the programmable Atmel controller used in this project and a text file describing
the mouse protocols used.
The disks that come with the Nicemouse/Remouse product are downloadable here.
