  1. https://github.com/commanderx16/x16-emulator/releases
  2. https://www.pagetable.com/docs/tmp/x16emu_linux-r41_rc3.zip https://www.pagetable.com/docs/tmp/x16emu_mac-r41_rc3.zip https://www.pagetable.com/docs/tmp/x16emu_win-r41_rc3.zip
  3. This is RC3: http://www.pagetable.com/docs/tmp/x16emu_linux-r41_rc3.zip http://www.pagetable.com/docs/tmp/x16emu_mac-r41_rc3.zip http://www.pagetable.com/docs/tmp/x16emu_win-r41_rc3.zip All ISO chars are now reachable. As a bonus, Shift+Alt+k produces the X16 logo (in ISO mode). If I didn't break anything, I'll release this as r41.
  4. Agreed, macOS calls it "ABC - Extended". I changed its identifier to "ABC/X16", and the docs call it "ABC - Extended (X16)".
  5. I added µ to Alt+m and ¬ to Alt+l. This is consistent with the default US Mac layout and replaced dead/not useful keys.
  6. You are right! Those as well as µ are not reachable. (My auto-test code was faulty.)
  7. Belgian French (80C) and Belgian Period (813) are identical: http://kbdlayout.info/kbdbe - they only differ in whether their locale (fr-BE vs. nl-BE). (Yay, we have our first owner! Can you reach out to me off-forum so we can discuss details?)
  8. Wow, thanks for testing it all. These were all documentation bugs, which are now fixed. Alt+; = should be Shift+Alt+; = Alt+. ␣ should be Alt+x ␣ (Yes, Alt+x is a dead key) Alt+, ␣ should be Alt+p ␣
  9. The current build, r41rc2 contains a new default keyboard, US, no dead keys, Mac-like:
  10. http://www.pagetable.com/docs/tmp/x16emu_linux-r41_rc2.zip http://www.pagetable.com/docs/tmp/x16emu_mac-r41_rc2.zip http://www.pagetable.com/docs/tmp/x16emu_win-r41_rc2.zip Difference: Default layout has no dead keys, can reach all of ISO-8859-15 using (Shift+)Alt/AltGr.
  11. Thanks for everyone's suggestions; they were very valuable. Now this is the next thing I'm asking for: I would like to have an "owner" for each keyboard layout. Someone who uses the layout and can comment on whether the X16 version works as expected can help replacing important characters not supported by ISO-8859-15 with ones that are can help finding places where to put some remaining PETSCII codes For example, the auto-converter for Windows layout definitions has this to say about Hungarian: ; PETSCII C64 keyboard regressions: ; graph: '\xa4\xa6\xa8\xa9\xba' <--- *** THIS IS BAD! *** ; Keys outside of ISO-8859-15: ; '¤¨´¸ĐđŁłŐőŰűˇ˘˙˛˝' What needs fixing in this example: The THIS IS BAD line means that 5 PETSCII graphical characters still need to be assigned key combinations, otherwise they cannot be typed in PETSCII mode. "Keys outside of ISO-8859-15" means that on Windows, these characters can be typed, but the X16 charset doesn't have them. Which of these characters are important for Hungarian? The X16 charset does not have ő, but it does have ö – should we use that one instead? All owners will get an everlasting special entry in the X16 credits. This is the list of keyboards that I need help with: 1009 Canadian French 405 Czech 406 Danish XX409 US - Colemak 10409 US - Dvorak 40A Spanish 40B Finnish 40C French 40E Hungarian 40F Icelandic 410 Italian 411 Japanese 413 Dutch 414 Norwegian 415 Polish (Programmers) 416 Portuguese (Brazil ABNT) 41A Croatian 41B Slovak 41C Albanian 41D Swedish 424 Slovenian 425 Estonian 426 Latvian 427 Lithuanian IBM 807 Swiss German 80A Latin American Spanish 80C Belgian French 816 Portuguese Please reach out to me by Email mist64@mac.com or on the X16 Discord. Thanks! Please spread this message on other X16 channels so we can reach enough people to have one owner
  12. Yes, it's a problem that the default layout has something as important as the quote character as a dead key. r41rc2 will have a default keyboard with all live keys.
  13. Currently, it's a modifier key with state, like Caps lock. Maybe it should do exactly what F4 does, yes.
  14. Filed https://github.com/commanderx16/x16-rom/issues/320 (for post r41).
  15. Can you check with r41rc1? I just tested these again and they work for me.
