To help understand what's the point, I ran the following steps on Oricutron 1.2 and Oricutron 1.2.4.
On my french azerty keyboard:
  • I type "AA88" on the BASIC screen
  • .. then I press F2 to enter the monitor
  • and then I type again the sequence "AA88
Here's what I get on Oricutron 1.2:

In BASIC, I get "QQ88" (because I'm a lazy guy and I didn't set up my keymap properly so the A is Q).
and in the monitor I get "aa__" which is just marvellous.

Here's what I get on Oricutron 1.2.4:

In BASIC, I get "AA88" (which is pleasantly surprising because I still haven't done my keymap).
and in the monitor I get "aa88" which is not so nice because I have no way to have the symbol '_' :-(

The problem is in the SDL2 key mapping when using localized keyboards,encodings etc.
I'll see how we can fix this...

I noticed a similar issue with my Norwegian keyboard: Most of the keys are correct, including the _ and the number row from 1 to 5, but from 6 to 9 the values don't match the markings.

Hi,

on my Mac mini M1, Oricutron.app don't apply oricutron.cfg. If I wan work with ROM 1.22fr I need change this name in folder Contents->Ressources->roms in basic11b.rom.

On monitor I can't save file. fw <star> <end> <file> Unable to open '<file>'

same all other, some keys in keyboard don't work like dot (.).

But this a wonderful work this emulator.

Big THANKS
