Re: [hatari-devel] keymap file for Windows/PC 101key German Keyboard -> Atari ST German keyboard

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

Hello Thomas,

when I limit the file to the required keys only, then it is just the following:

45,12     # ß
91,26     # Ü
93,27     # +
92,41     # #
96,43     # ~

I use the German TOS 1.04. No mapping of Y and Z was required. It already worked by default. But if I use the bundled (international) EmuTOS, then I get Y and Z reversed and would have to map them.

My mapping is only valid/required under Windows (tested with Hatari 1.7 / SDL 1.2). Under Linux all keys worked out of the box, but here I have Y and Z swapped (tested with Ubuntu 14.04).

Thanks for the mapping file ... I got two comments, though:

First, it looks like you remapped pretty much every key. That should
not be necessary. Could you limit your file to the keys that need to be

Second, Y and Z seem to be reversed in your mappings. On a german ST
keyboard, Y should be mapped to 44 and Z should be mapped to 21. Does
your mapping really work for you here? Which TOS version/language did
you use?
