    VICE devs told me that SDL1 version didn't have Vsync.

    Vsync is present in SDL2 version, that i would upload soon, but SDL2 keyboard map for OpenPandora does not recognize @, ? and : chars.

    Code:
    The key you just pressed is not recognized by SDL. To help get this fixed, please report this to the SDL mailing list <sdl@libsdl.org> X11 KeyCode 198 (190), X11 KeySym 0x40 (at).
    The key you just pressed is not recognized by SDL. To help get this fixed, please report this to the SDL mailing list <sdl@libsdl.org> X11 KeyCode 222 (214), X11 KeySym 0x3F (question).
    The key you just pressed is not recognized by SDL. To help get this fixed, please report this to the SDL mailing list <sdl@libsdl.org> X11 KeyCode 199 (191), X11 KeySym 0x3A (colon).
    And performance is 5% to 9% worse, so CRT filter is not an option, maybe with overclock it could be better.

    But, to my knowledge, there is no SDL_SCANCODE_ for those characters... What code should I put ?

    Hm, then probably Pickle has added that to his Vice version. I think the sourcecode is somewhere available.

    Hehehe! :)
    So Modern(ish) hardware still stuggles emulating this >30 year old machine (ok, fair enough; plus disk drive) correctly :D

    @EvilDragon When playing C64 on my Pandora the ghosting of my screen is real evident. Are the newer LCD's better?

    Looking at SDL_scancode.h inside SDL2 include folder i found this:

    Code:
    308    SDL_SCANCODE_KP_COLON = 203,
    --
    311    SDL_SCANCODE_KP_AT = 206,
    --
    The only reference i have found for question char is on SDL_keycode.h

    Code:
    86    SDLK_QUESTION = '?',

    Do you know as to what 'NEWS' refers? I was unable to find anything in this thread matching that description, and the only thing on the website matching it dates to 2012.

    Downloading now. Already have it running on my pc, I think it's awesome!
    I always try to rate and comment but PND Manager is often giving me a hard time and does not update

    PS. Repo info of 3.0 is still from 2.4.32

    Interesting if pyra's keyboard will skip characters when typing fast. The wiki says "some keyboards".

    Even on my PC with Linux the emu skips characters when typing fast.

    Too much layers between the hardware and the emu, even with distros like Combian 64 V2.1 or Amiberry 2.1 on Raspberry Pi.

    Tested this today on the c64dtv setting using d64 files of turrican and quod eret exit on my 1GHz Pandora and it all worked well. Thanks for the update!
