Question: Are there any plans to have maintenance releases of the emulator to adopt bugfixes and optimizations?

Totally unrelated to any pull requests I may have contributed to... 😉

Maintenance releases? How about more regular releases? 🙂 I'll try that!

How can we make the emulator recognize lower case letters? I have run it on a couple different Win10 systems and the default seems to be uppercase and the shift just produces an alternate character, not lower or upper case letter. I'm sure this is something simple I just don't understand or are missing.

Thanks,

Part of the reason behind this is because the X16 defaults to Unshifted PETSCII, like the Commodore 64. Unshifted PETSCII doesn't contain lower-case letters, but the console can swap to Shifted PETSCII, which does contain lower-case letters. The alternate characters you saw are also part of the PETSCII character set.

Thanks for the info. Makes sense as I've looked a bit more at the Commodore 64 docs.
