phaeron Posted September 7, 2015 Author Share Posted September 7, 2015 Help+Reset entry into new Ultimate BIOS appears broken. Thought I had that sorted. Try now: http://www.virtualdub.org/beta/Altirra-2.70-test25.zip http://www.virtualdub.org/beta/Altirra-2.70-test25-src.zip Originally I had planned to just make raw mode do the full keyboard scan, but that turned out to be too annoyingly slow (you can outtype POKEY's keyboard scan!). Therefore, the raw mode cheats a little bit and triggers keyboard interrupts immediately without waiting for scan delays. The downside is that sometimes all these little fibs are contradictory, like when you have a key that doesn't require Shift on the host keyboard mapped to one on the Atari keyboard that does. Saying truth, this was the reason for me to download the new version, as I wanted to remap the F-keys in a way that I find more convenient (i.e. F1 = F1, F2 = F2, F3 = F3, F4 = F4, F5 = HELP, F6 = START, F7 = SELECT, F8 = OPTION and F12 = RESET). But remapping the Reset key does not seem possible, unless I am missing something. Reset, along with the rest of the function keys, are mapped in Tools > Keyboard Shortcuts instead. It's a bit weird, but the Atari keyboard by itself was too big to just throw into the same mix. today I encountered a somehow strange DIR behaviour or incompatibility of the DIR command between TB XL and Altirra Basic. TurboBasic XL uses different token values than Basic XL/XE for extended commands, so even though the DIR commands look the same, they are only source compatible and not binary compatible. Since Altirra BASIC uses the Basic XL/XE token values, this means bad things will happen if you exchange .BAS files with extended commands between it and TBXL. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
