I have been using the Moonblaster 1.4 disk image from the link on the MSX Resource Center.

When I attempt to switch patterns with Control+the cursor keys, instead of moving one pattern at a time, it moves 4 at a time.

This does not happen in the Mac port of fMSX by Richard Bannister, and CocoaMSX (which is a port of BlueMSX to OS X) refuses to run on my system.

CTRL-Up/Down moves 4 patterns, CTRL-Left/Right moves one pattern....

I tried that before I posted.

The cursor keys work normally without Control held down, and I tried another keyboard to make sure it wasn't the keyboard going bad. Not sure what is up with this.

It could be because I'm running a Mac. What was the original platform openMSX started on? Linux?

A work around is to use the position/pattern editor (F6).
Even better is to use a real MSX in stead Wink

tedmrak: so what exactly doesn't work? What exactly did you try and what happened? And what did you expect instead?

I find that putting openMSX in full screen mode sometimes makes certain keys (combinations) work.
