I am currently playing around with the Amstrad PC1640 emulation and stumbled over one showstopper (aside graphical bugs).
I got the german install disks for the amstrad and creaated a new 20mb harddisc,
setup is no problem the emulated pc boots without problems ( hey i can even add soundcards - yay!).
Now to my problem:
on the german layout there is no \ key,
on the original amstrad (i owned one from 1989 - 1991, had given it away to friends then) you could press ctrl-alt-ß key to get the char (on us keyboard the key right of 0).
This does not work in Mame.
Anybody knows a work around except for disabling the german layout?
alt-92 works for the moment, but is not the workaround i am looking for
