Hi Guys, I stumbled across a thread on the ATARIMAX product forum where someone has a Swedish/Scandinavian keyboard layout on their Atari 800XL, and it got me to thinking... How did users of Ataris where AZERTY or QWERTZ keyboards are the norm cope? Did they get different keyboards? or have to put up with QWERTY? I've seen a QWERTZ keyboard where the Z and the Y were swapped from their "usual" places and a wiring job done on the underside of the keyboard to "swap" the keys? Or were sets of stickers/replacement BIOSes (e.g. for Czech, Polish, Hebrew) an after-market thing?
Hi there! From the information i'm finding at http://www.vdsteenoven.com/aquarius/keyboard.html and http://www.vdsteenoven.com/aquarius/iomap.html , it looks like the 14bit information from the keymap is all stored in AF 16bit register? i can't get the bits between 8 and 13, and the B register seems to have no value at all I'm really struggling a lot on understanding it... What would look like in a z80 assembly routine snippet, that you can read all keys pressed? from the $FF i only can read the colscan (A is a 8bit register, i think), so when i press "w", the same happens when i press "t", "i", "e", "y", etc. - How can i distinguish between "w", "t", "i", "e" and "y"? Thanks!
