ACIA mouse question
Posted by: Thadoss Dec,03.2015-18:06 

Hi all,

I've got a little question about the ACIA mouse $118 vector.

I've read many things about it and read lot's of source code, but something is never explained :

When I get a mouse paquet : $f8, $f9, $fa or $fb, it gives me the buttons values and then, 2 bytes for the relative X and relative Y values.

All of is is OK and works well in my code except if I move very fast the mouse (in this case, i'm sure deltaX is > 127).

The Atari compendium says : [...] If the movement is greater than can be represented as signed bytes (-128 to 127), multiple packets are sent.

How does this multiple packets works ?
Best regards
