Hi, I would like to ask a favor:
For openMSX:
Switch keys to use "STOP" from keyF8 to keyPAGSU.
In NLMSX I used keyPAGSU equivalent to "STOP"
Press CTRL + STOP (in keyboard PC: CTRL + PAGSU) to stop the BASIC and the one under PowerBASIC (MSXTURBO R with v9990).
Can you give me an example to exchange the keys?
Thank you! Smile

PAGSU? Do you mean PageUp?

Why can't you use the F8 key?

Sorry for the error "PAGSU" yes: PageUp !!
swap F8 to PageUp
(see key PageUp on Bluemsx for "key STOP")

I do not like the F8 key like "STOP"

The PageUp key will be "STOP"!!

How can I change these keys for OpenMSX?

BlueMSX (PAGEUP) => keySTOP <= Ok.
OpenMSX (F8) = => keySTOP <= No, change keyF8 with keyPageUP!!!
True?

In openMSX, PageUp is already in use for "reverse"...

Exactly, switch both keys:
F8 => "reverse"
PageUp => "STOP"
True ?
Can you help me to write a script or function to change the key?

Note: "reverse" <= I do not need it anymore!

Not from me, but from you : call author of OpenMSX.
