Thread: AT2XT keyboard converter

  1. #21

    Default

    I tested this AT to XT keyboard converter with Juko ST motherboard and a PS2 keyboard. Almost everything works well, including SHIFT, CAPS LOCK and CTRL keys. However, I have a minor problem. When playing Prince of Persia 1 on this XT using the converter, the SHIFT key is not recognized and I can't take small steps by pressing SHIFT+Arrow key. If I do that, the prince will still take a normal step as if SHIFT wasn't pressed. The SHIFT key works well in the same game (for example, when drinking a potion), in MS-DOS and also in other apps so I am not sure what the issue is.

    Does anyone have the same problem?

    You might get a more definitive answer by borrowing an XT keyboard.

    Nobody around here owns an XT keyboard. The only XT keyboard that I have here has many dead keys and can't really be used. eBay wants at least $100+ for an XT keyboard in unknown condition. I believe the SHIFT key issue is timing-related, e.g. Prince of Persia makes some assumption on timings to detect Shift-Arrow combinations, which work well with an original keyboard but not with the converter.

    I just looked and there were plenty of XT keyboards under $50. Some were as low as $10.99. These are working keyboards.

    Well, those don't show up when I search eBay here from Singapore. Maybe those do not ship to Singapore hence they don't show up.

    The only thing I find is this, for almost US$100 with shipping to Singapore:

    Can you post the eBay link?

    Alternatively I have some XT keyboards -- but the shipping would be high.

    In post #493 of the AT2XTKB development thread, member schnurzel posted some alternative code for the AT2XTKB.
    The link to that post is [here].
    In the later posts of #499 and #528, other members reported that the alternative code fixed some issues.
    Maybe you should try that code.
