im working on an artproject and some of it will be a screen where a couple of sentances in swedish are written. so i have two questions

1. is it possible to use the swedish letters åäö in this emulator?
2. is it possible to write text and using enter or return without getting the ?syntax error-message?

regards Fredrik

Hi Kattkatt,

Hope you can still read this, as your message has not been answered yet.
Yes it is possible to use a key for one of the Swedish letters. But...
You need to have/get/create a character set that is loaded in the place of the regular one before you can define which key is changed.
There are lots of utilities out on D64-image that help you create your own character set.
It's not easy, but it can be done.

If you want to avoid getting error messages when entering text, you need to realise that the commodore 64 (or its emulator) is not a typing machine, but a computer.
This means that the friendly blue screen would be for entering commands only (Compare it to the dos prompt in a PC).
To have your computer print the lines you want it to display on screen, you need to write a program:


This would repeat printing what you write between quotation marks (NOTE: They must be double, can be found when pressing and holding Shift, then pressing 2 still holding shift, then releasing both keys.
The snag is that you need to end the line (within 80 characters) with the double quotation marks too. Not doing so may give a lot of weird symbols on your screen. (Also true for a regular Commodore 64).

Hope this helps!
