Amazing :) Out of curiosity - why did you go for the AT layout?

I get old, it's simpler to have a standard keyboard.

I went the other way and modified my PC keyboard to suit the ST/PC/XT layout. I find it much better for programming. The location of the Control keys especially is horrible on ISO/AT keyboards.

Anyway, I think this is an amazing project. How will you make the case?

Hi,

The electronic part is finished, everything works.
I added the SmallyMouse 2 module to connect a USB mouse directly.

I just regret having put the RJ12 connector at the back, it bothers.
There is more to do than the box.

Thanks

Interesting topic.. My question: if you have for example a qwerty keyboard on a TT/mega ST, you replace the keyboard by a Azerty or a qwertz keyboard, and voila, it works? ( So the keyboard change is the only change you have to make?)

Of course i know tos also varies in languages, but only keyboard lay-out i mean
Atari 260 ST (rainbow TOS) Atari Falcon 030 14 MB 32GB HDD ,Plextor 716A CD/DVD ,Atari 1040 STE (4MB) C-Lab Mk-X CT 060 Atari Mega STe Soundpool Adat... too much :D

Hi Foxxy74,

If your TOS is by example in English UK and you connect AZERTY keyboard, the keyboard is QWERTY.

Thanks
