# Basilisk II (C) 1997-2005 Christian Bauer
#
# This file is used to translate the (server-specific) scancodes to
# Mac keycodes depending on the window server being used.
#
# The format of this file is as follows:
#
# sdl <driver string>
# <SDL scancode> <Mac keycode>
# <SDL scancode> <Mac keycode>
# <SDL scancode> <Mac keycode>
# ...
# sdl <driver string>
# <SDL scancode> <Mac keycode>
# <SDL scancode> <Mac keycode>
# ...
#
# The "driver string" must match the first part of the SDL driver vendor
# description as reported by SDL_VideoDriverName(). If a match is found,
# the keycode translation table is constructed from the following
# lines. Each line contains an SDL scancode followed by its associated
# Mac keycode. Both keycodes have to be given in decimal. Lines
# beginning with "#" or ";" are treated as comments and ignored.

Do you perhaps know what the SDL values are based off?

I can't speak as to fbcon, but the X11 results look like those you'd see via xmodmap -pke; the Mac results are those from Carbon's HIToolbox, and the Windows keys are just the standard DirectX mapping.

hey guys,

I found that the keycodes doesn't work in SDL2. Anywhere that I can get a fix for US keyboard?

I've never looked at the Basilisk II code at all prior to today so don't necessarily know the answer, but, honestly, it looks like the best solution with SDL 2 is not to try to use a keycode remapping at all — my reading of video_sdl2.cpp is that if either keycodes is false in wherever Basilisk II gets preferences from, or if keycodefile names a file that doesn't exist, then use_keycodes will be false and Basilisk II will use event2keycode rather than keycode_table, trusting SDL itself to do the proper mapping.

Having prior experience of SDL 2's source code, I think it always gets the US keyboard exactly right under X11.

I see. Disabling the keycodes works great in my Mac. Thanks!
