Not sure what you are getting at, you mean a internal PeST ? I only made ones which plug into the mouse port like normal.

I think he means one of those things you used to get to stop you breaking the ports on the ST since someone stuck them in a not so great place :lol:

Was also talked about here https://www.exxosforum.co.uk/forum/viewt ... f=29&t=157

Only way for automatic would be to use the fire button to switch, or a separate switch. It could be done easily I guess.

Oh ok. Well, when I get time I will design a PCB, I guess can be used internal or external. I think it can be done with 3 TTL chips..
