Can you check if those keys not working also happened without the shift register change?

Ok, I commented it out, recompiled and the keys still didn't work. So weird.

As an aside, just now when I was changing the e05a30.cpp file I accidentally opened the e05a03.h file and guess what, there's a shift register in that one also. I guess a person should go reading other similar devices for clues too 8-).

Can you find which commit upstream broke the keys (after stashing or committing/PRing your changes?)

Is it actually broken? If the printer is using IPT_KEYBOARD then it’s intentional that it no longer responds to keys when the system keyboard is active. This is to solve the “typing on everything at once” issue you get the moment you plug a terminal into a computer with a keyboard, or plug two terminals into a computer. See https://mametesters.org/view.php?id=6320 and check the Keyboard Mode menu.

Ahh, I see that it is disabled by default. I did not know that menu was there 8-)

Setting it to enabled makes it active again. Cool.

Thanks, Vas.

I had a mini freakout for why the keyboard wasn't working on the ct486, but it gets the rightmost screen so it comes up initially disabled. Left screen = enabled, right screen = disabled.

Simple fix, just enable it from the Keyboard menu.

Yay! So now we can see the descenders:

Good job! I remember C00[0-3] bugged me for quite a while, I hadn't realized it could have been a shift register.

Just for fun, fiddling with the cpc6128 and the ap2000:

You can print to the printer with PRINT #8,"HELLO"
or LIST #8

Code
     70 CLS
     80 PRINT "TESTING printerp01 PRINTER PAC II"
     81 ?
     85 PRINT "startup with printerp01"
     86 ?
     95 PRINT "type RUN "CHR$(34)"PP2 enter"
     96 ?
     99 FOR J = 1 TO 5
    100  FOR I=32 TO 127:?CHR$(I);:NEXT:PRINT
    110 NEXT
    120 |DUMP

and you can adjust the colors with

INK 0,0 makes color 0 black
INK 3,26 makes color 3 white
INK 3,27 makes color 3 grey
