Do you still need me to test the modded wutil 3.2 on my Rainbow?

Just updated my mame sources to the latest after getting a new mac and rebuilt... And the venix image I'd saved away from last time fails to boot with blocked interrupts....

Anybody else using this?

OK. I just recreated the partition, and have the same issue. Venix installs its own bootblocks, it seems, overwriting the ones I'd installed. I think I have the modded 3.2 wutil, so I'll see if I can make it bootable by booting to that... I hate WUTIL, though, because it only used weird function keys that only exist on the Rainbow, and the keyboard mappings is always opaque enough that it's a hassle. I guess I'll have to see if I can hack it to also support simple letters for its operations as well... Maybe put out a 3.3 with the boot fix and that smile....

I tried to map the keyboard 1:1 whenever possible (with few exceptions like Alt and Control). As the PC keyboard has less keys, some rarely used function keys were left out.

The result is debatable, yet a few applications / games rely on key positions and inconsistent assignments create even more hassle IMHO.

Does the right Alt key generate a distinct key code on US keyboards (like Alt Gr)...?
