Hi again just tried a sinclair psu on an oric with the polarity crossed and it works 100% ok.
to change the polarity you can either cut and put a cross in the 9v output wires or unsolder the jack plug end that goes into the computer and cross it there.
hope this helps

or of course you can use the ascii code such as
IF A$=CHR$(32) THEN PING
CHR$(32) being the code for space
the cursor keys are LEFT-CHR$(8),RIGHT-CHR$(9),UPCHR$(10),DOWN-CHR$(11)

from memory you need to put the key letter or number in inverted commas IF KEY$="Z" THEN X=X+1 :IFKEY$="X"THENX=X-1 ect

if your writing a program with a few key options you could put-
10 A$=KEY$
20 IFA$="Z"THENX=X+1
30 IFA$="Y"THENX=X-1
ECT(saves you writing KEY all the time)
hope this helps
