Characters not part of the PETSCII or ISO8859-015 sets would need to be provided by the program being used. So if your program needs additional characters, it would need to either provide them (by modifying the character memory in VERA) or render the text in a graphic mode.It is beautiful indeed.
Then I realized something. Do we know what character sets are going to be available on the X16?
Among the many things that would make the X16 useful is a native word processor that would support, for example, the OpenDocument format. Users could then port their work from the X16 to any modern computer and vice-versa. But for that the X16 would need to support at least one character set that is currently widely used...
Just a thought.
RetroManCave is doing a series of videos on upgrading an Amiga 500 ++, including a Vampire accelerator and keyboard adapter so you can use USB keyboards with it...
but... but... I wanna use a CX16 keyboard...I'm sure you could use that keyboard, but as the Amiga doesn't use PETSCII, the keycaps would be a wasted investment.
However, by all accounts, that is a good keyboard, irrespective of the keycaps, and you can order it from WASD Keyboards.
WASD Keyboards offers custom mechanical keyboards, custom Cherry MX keycaps, and other mechanical keyboard accessories.www.wasdkeyboards.com
