Keyboard C64 / Vice, cannot start games using ESC, Run/Stop/ Enter



  • I have posted it in the gitlab support a while ago.
    Try it here now.

    Some C64 games require keyboard inputs for names etc.
    (I do have a usb keyboard attached).
    That is the reason i cant start games like "giana sisters" or "winter games".
    The first requires to hit "Run/Stop" which is usually mapped to "ESC" in Vice.
    But hitting "ESC" on an attached keyboard brings me back to the ES.
    In "winter games" i have to hit "ENTER" after the name input. Doing that starts the VICES settings and virtual
    keyboard.
    But i cant control it. I cant use it with gamepad since the cursor isnt moving.
    Using the build in touchpad from the usb keyboard i can move the cursor but the enter/confirm isnt working.

    Any ideas how to solve it?

    I think it would be great to put some common keys on the gamepad like "ENTER", "SPACE", "RUN/STOP" for the C64.
    And: Is it possible that the VICE Keyboard inputs overrule the Recallbox-OS key settings?

    Thank you for your great work!!!!

    here you find the commodore 64 keyboard map

    here the emulator keymap
    https://github.com/libretro/RetroArch/blob/master/input/input_keymaps.c

    For example the RUN / STOP key is mapped to ESC (RETROK_ESCAPE)

    Press Hotkey + B to configure
    QuickMenu->option to joypad key setup
    QuickMenu->option->create game-option file to save
