Problem using BlowUp with PC-AT Keyboard

Postby ScottChi » Thu Dec 07, 2017 3:44 pm

Hi All,

The BlowUp manual says that when I use the BLOWACC desk accessory, I can switch between the two configured screen resolutions using Control-Alt-Help. I am using a Wizztronics Falcon Rack, however, which includes an adapter to use a PC-AT style keyboard (5-pin DIN plug). There is no Help key.

Is there a key combination that sends the same codes as Control-Alt-Help on the PC style keyboard?

I probably knew about this back when I built the system, but it has been in the closet for 15 years. Thanks for any help!

HELP should be on F11 or one of the useless PC keys (Break, Scroll Lock etc.). Same with UNDO.

Thanks for the info Joska.
I find that F11 is the Help key. When I type it by itself it displays the TOS help dialog.
However, it does not work to change the resolutions selected in BLOWACC using Ctrl-Alt-F11. Bah! Back to the documentation...
