PC Keyboard entrance on Oricutron

Post by peacer » Tue Jul 02, 2013 9:57 pm

Is there an option on Oricutron to type in with use of PC keyboard setting , not Oric keyboard?

While writing in Oricutron, I have to remember where I could find -, =, ., ? etc. As you know those characters are different in PC keyboard and Oric Keyboard.

In euphoric, I think there was an option for that. Pressing shift-9 type ")" in Oric, not "(" etc.

I checked the Oricutron manual but couldn't find about this. Is there a chance to use it in this way?

I'm not sure how this translation has been happening, but have you tried setting the keymap to "qwerty" with the "--keymap" option? Maybe you've found a bug in the Oric remapping function of Oricutron ..

No I don't think its a bug. Just a feature :D

You don't have this problem? Maybe its because your PC keyboard is english type.

My notebook is turkish style keyboard. Its qwerty style too but to access special turkish characters like ğ, ü, ş, ö , layout is different.

For example, in Oric keyboard shift-9 is "(" but in turkish keyboard its ")". So during emulation when I hit shift-9 it shows "("

In euphoric I remember there was option in program -maybe F3 key- so directly Oric types as if its a normal windows program like MS-WORD. ı wonder if its possible in Oricutron too.

oricutron relies on sdl to do keyboard mapping. It seems it isn't perfect...
