support for pimoroni keybow please

Unread post by spikemorrissey »

Hi,

Would it be possible to add support for the Pimoroni keybow please?

https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/keyb ... 0390696019

I bought it with the intention of adding the hotkeys / and * for the Atari ST core as the my Atari ST keyboard wouldnt transmit that to the mister for gamesaves and quitting.

I think the problem is due to the fact that MISTer supports only one keyboard.

the amstrad core can see it but not the atari st core which is what i need it for
how come some cores support some keyboards and not others?

Sorry for the late answer. I do not know the exact details but it seems like MISTer does not support 2 keyboards connected at the same time. If you have one keyboard connected and the Pimorini keybow (which looks like a keybaord) I suppose one of them will not be usable in MISTer.
Are you using your keybow just by itself?
You say that the Amstrad core sees it so it makes me wonder if what I think is right or not.
I guess only the developers can answer your question, Sorge being likely the one able to answer it.

I'm sure I used a Bluetooth & USB keyboard at the same time (I had to use USB full size KB to map a key missing on mini Bluetooth board). That was months ago, can't imagine it's removed that functionality though).
