I picked up a PS/2 keyboard with compact layout and when I connect it to the 1chipMSX, I get nothing.

Does anyone know how difficult it would be to add support for this type of keyboard?

Thank you!

Should just work out of the box. What kind of keyboard is it?

I guess PS/2 is not per se a standard as I ran into several Logitech PS/2 keyboards that didn't do anything while they did work on a PC. Buying a PS/2 keyboard for your OCM without testing is a bit of a gamble.

i think OCM uses scan code set which is unsupported by that particular keyboard - https://wiki.osdev.org/PS/2_Keyboard#Scan_Code_Sets

Mine is a Cherry ML 4100 / D-91275.

Is there any available knowledge on how to program support for a new keyboard on this system?
