Hi, a Twitcher had problems playing Snatcher: on the keypad the umbers 2, 4, 6 and 8 (which are also directional keys) didn't work when fighting, using openMSX 16.0. But for me this works fine. So, perhaps it's some Windows thing?

Can you please try this for me?
E.g. run with a turboR and press the numeric keypad of your PC and see which numbers appear (or not). You can also try in Snatcher of course Smile I can provide an openMSX savestate if you want.

Tried this on Windows, both on an 8255 and a turboR. Numeric keys work as expected. Numbers when NumLock is on, arrow keys when Numlock is off. (tried this just in Basic btw)

Thanks for trying that!

One thing that is already different: on my system (Linux) I get the numbers always, even when NumLock is off.
