Reading the Family Basic keyboard?

Reading the Family Basic keyboard?
by on (#46030)
I was wondering if anyone had any info on how to read keys from the family basic keyboard?

I recently found out that pressing scroll lock on FCEUD will turn the keyboard into the family basic keyboard.. this will make it easy to develop playpower apps... but how do you read the keys?

I made a solid test of the keyboard using all of the information in this thread:

http://nesdev.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?t=1825

Be sure to read the whole thread, because I was linked to some documentation there that I remember somehow being off, and I think in that thread I figured out what it was. It was a while ago, though, so I don't remember that much about it.

EDIT: Also, please pardon my idiotic demeanor; I am quite embarassed about it :oops: .
