Hi,

Is there a UK keyset available for WinVICE C64 Emulator on Windows XP? It is just a bit difficult typing some characters.

I can only see these files present with the distribution:

win_pos.vkm
win_sym_us.vkm
win_sym_de.vkm
win_sym_it.vkm
win_pos.vkm

Many Thanks.

    no, there are no other keysets available ... as you found out :) is the US mapping really all that much different ?

    The US mapping is very similar to UK. The only significant problem I found is pressing Shift + 2 produces a @ character instead of ". Likewise, the key for @ produces " instead!

    You can fix that problem:

    1. Copy win_sym_us.vkm. Name the copy win_sym_uk.vkm.
    2. Open it in a text editor.
    3. Find the two lines that start with the number 3. Bookmark them; or, remember their line numbers.
    4. Then, find the two lines that start with the number 40. The second line of both pairs are the lines where you will make changes.
    5. Swap the second, third, and fourth numbers in one of those lines with the corresponding numbers in the other line.
    6. Change the comments to show the changed meanings of those two lines.
    7. Save the file. Test it in x64.

      Many thanks. These steps worked great and makes WinVICE much more user friendly. Just need to tell WinVICE about the new file in "Settings->Keyboard settings...".
