Emulator Keyboard Support?

Emulator Keyboard Support?
by on (#47138)
Do any emulators support QWERTY keyboard input via the host keyboard i.e. emulate the Famicom Keyboard?

I know you can map controller buttons to the keyboard but can you actually capture the whole keyboard in your code?

And has anyone got some keyboard-capturing code? :)

Ah. That's good-news, bad-news for me.

The bad-news being I've never been able to compile FCEUDX (Mac OSX).

There's a makefile for OSX included in the source but it throws a ton of errors that I've not managed to fix.

:(
