Hi guys,

I was fiddling around trying to get the ap2000 working on the apple2 parallel interface and couldn't get it to work. It looks like somewhere between 219 and 220 that the little printhead block stopped moving on the ap2000 when you boot.

Typing PR#1 should activate the printer but it doesn't seem to do anything.

./mame64 apple2p -sl1 parallel -sl1:parallel:pic_ctx ap2000

I tried it with the cpc6128 and got the same behavior.

./mame64 cpc6128 -centronics ap2000

By default, the keys for the ap2000 are mapped to FLEO for Form Feed / Line Feed / Eject / Online so hitting O will move the printhead from the center to the left under 219, so it's alive (at least a little 8-)

Trying the cpc6128 and typing PRINT #8,"QQQQQQ" will hang the command line until you type O but it won't print anything. Subsequent PRINT #8 will hang.
