Dear Team, can you please consider adding digital mouse ("joystick mouse") support to VICE/x64?
One example for such a joystick mouse is/was the "Turbo GEOS mouse".
With such support it should be possible to use VICE with the PC mouse, but movement and buttons act like a digital C64 joystick (with two buttons).
Maybe you can make it possible by mapping mouse movements/buttons to VICE joystick? Not sure how the second button could be handled with current joystick setup though.

    The second button would be sent through one of the paddle input lines.

    CBM's model 1350 mouse is a joystick mouse. And, Wico's and Atari's trackballs talk to the computer through the joystick lines (they have only one button).
