In Sierra SCI games, one can enter the "debug" mode of
the game by pressing LeftShift+RightShift+Minus. In
dosbox, this is interpreted as underscore.

    actually they are detected probably.
    it's more that their keyreading routine is incompatible with
    ours (they tend to read the key multiple times or so) It's
    quite a weird process.

    Will do some more testing and hacking around

    Works correctly in the current cvs if you press
    minus-lshift-rshift.(as the first key press the - )
    maybe we report wrong code or did it work that way in normal
    operation.

    Could you confirm that behaviour ?

    In 0.58 it works the same way.
    I'll check if our keyboard routines are wrong.

    it works.
    just press them simultaniously
    (or else the - as the first key)
