Hi

For I've tested your new WIP this morning the WAV files are accepted and launch fine (3D maze, scuba dive, Impossible Mission).
Good job !
:-)

About the keyboard mapping :

If I launch Oricutron as I'm in FR keyboard, the problem remains : keystroke A gives me a A in oricutron but still no numbers. Let's say incomplete AZERTY.
If I launch Oricutron as I'm in US keyboard, oricutron works fine (QWERTY).
If I launch Oricutron as I'm in US keyboard and then I switch back to FR keyboard, oricutron works fine and keeps the QWERTY configuration.

About the keboard options :
The keyboard layout is just beautiful thanks to the graphic designer who made it . But there is a tiny mistake : see the key "-" (1st top rank, 3rd from the right), when shifted it should be "£" and not "&" on it, according to the Atmos real keyboard. The Oric 1 is OK (even if the keys could have been less grey). Love them , very accurate.

I tryed to map the keys and tha makes Oricutron crash very often.
I also don't know how to map the whifted keys : Oric , as every good QWERTY keyboard, gives you "5" when you push the 5 key. So I map it using shift + 5 on my FR Mac keyboard. Now, how can I map the "%" on Oricutron ? because shift+5 on my Mac keyboard gives me ... 5

Yes I know about the little problem with the £ key. If you want to solve it you are welcome ;)

I never had any recent crash with the key mapping (we had some bugs in the beginning but they should be solved now).
Anything that could help us find the problem ?
Can you reproduce it with a series of actions that always lead to a crash ?

I use Oricutron with the key mapping on 2 macs regularly (I'm coding a game for the Oric Atmos) and never have crashes...

The key mapping is a key mapping not a symbol mapping therefore the symbols that are on the same key in the Oric are mapped on only one key in your Mac. I cannot solve this problem easily. So we will have to live with it.

What you need to do is to map the key that reads 5 on the Atmos keyboard to the one that reads 5 on your Mac keyboard.
Then when you type shift-5 you end up with a %.

I'd be happy to fix the keyboard layout.
do you have the photoshop PSD file ? send it to me. I will be better than to tweak the BMP

Thanks to Forggy, the minus key problem (it had an ampersand as shifted symbol instead of a pound) is fixed on the SVN.
