    So I was playing around with getting different inputs to work in Sonic games, specifically the 6-button joypad and the mouse.. well, I succeeded. :D Here's the result..

    The 6-Button support isn't shown, so you'll have to take my word for it, but the mouse support.. :3


    Left click for A/B/C (it's all the same in Sonic 1 anyway), and right click or middle click for Start. Scroll the mouse for directions (yes, you have to move it constantly to hold the movement, it adds challenge.)


    You'll have to probably use Fusion for this, as it supports the Mega Drive Mouse. As some people have has trouble setting it up to work, this is what your controller settings should look like:

    Then, in-game, press F12 to allow Fusion to read mouse input, and press it again to release it.


    For those who can't get through it with mouse (it's just bog-standard Sonic 1, by the way) if you switch back to controller it'll just start working.


    (Yes, I do know there are problems with pausing with the mouse.)


    Enjoy. :D

    Haha cool. Totally pointless but a fine accomplishment none the less.

    So very difficult to keep the speed up, although Sonic accelerates even if the mouse doesn't. I'd laugh if you used it extended edtition.... I made it up to Marble Zone though. Nice job at this. It's amazing.
