Looks like the 6845 gets out of sync with the screen. Its a tricky thing to get right.

The emulated Amstrad PC1512 and PC1640 have a keyboard problem. crazyc diagnosed it as "d" acting as "backspace"
Hitting the "d" key multiple times sometimes leaves a "d" standing, but it's hard to type "cd" as the leading "c" usually gets erased ...

It happens because MAME maps joystick left to D by default and that translates to backspace in Amstrad's DOS.

The Amstrad keyboard has a joystick port. According to this document mouse and keyboard also generate scancodes.

I will try to redefine the joystick mapping from Amstrad's DOS as mentioned here

and then report back smile

OK, changing the "P2 LEFT" setting in MAME's "Input this machine" menu of the PC1512 driver to, say, Shift-D, gets rid of the issue of disappearing characters.

The NVR utility has settings for keyboard, mouse and joystick but covers only the mouse and fire buttons and the DEL=> key.

PC1640 and PC1512 service manuals here ...

There's a lot of documentation on the NCR PC4i available now:

http://oldcomputers.dyndns.org/public/pub/rechner/ncr/PC4i/manuals/Complete_Document_Set/index.html

The guy who runs the site cooperated with

http://vintagecomputer.ca/files-area/

which has a lot of stuff on other old machines.

+ ROM-DOS boots fine. Diags are not passing yet (apparently T1000 uses a 80C50 as keyboard controller, and diags are trying to test its 160 bytes of memory...) and I've no idea how expanded memory ("HardRAM") is configured -- port 0xC3 is a good condidate though.

Isn't port 0xc3 within the 2nd DMA controller range? Or did the T1000 have something else mapped there?
