Hi all. I've seen on the list that microsoft arc keybord is supported. Does someone know if also the microsoft arc mouse is supported?

Hopefully someone with this mouse will reply. However, it looks like it's only 1000dpi which is pretty low. You may consider upgrading your mouse for gaming if you can.

Thanks Obsiv. Maybe i'll take a look for a wireless mouse with more DPI... the problem is that i'm lefthand, and  most of gaming mice have a asimmetric design... damned righthand!! ;D

We can not get our fingers on this for the Teensy in EU. Any design would be possible with it.

Oh I see, yes, that's going to make things more difficult. The Arc may still work though.

I bookmarked some lefty/ambi mice sites while doing searches for an ambidextrous one recently.  I'm naturally lefty but other issues have mostly made me work as if a righty, so I've been considering switching.

They aren't all current, they're hardly exhaustive, and not all suggestions are known to work with XIM, but anyway, here are the ones I bookmarked, in case they're useful to you:

http://kotaku.com/5927606/an-ambidextrous-gaming-mouse-so-simple-you-can-use-it-one-handed

And I bookmarked this just because it amazed me.  I never even thought of this.  It's kinda cool...

Good luck...
