Anyone here play "keyboard-intensive" games such as Ultima?

Just curious how others play Ultima on Hatari.

If you have trouble with multiple keys being pressed at the same time, note that cheaper PC keyboards don't support that many keys being pressed down at the same time. E.g. for playing 2-player keyboard games, one should use e.g. old quality Keytronics keyboard, or with newer keyboards, something aimed at gaming.

I love all the Ultima games on my Atari's. Have played them to death over the years.

However, I only play them on real hardware, not any emulation...

at, just realised that Hatari can set up keyboard shortcut keys... which is cool.
and can map the on screen joystick to the keyboard cursor keys.
so much more better now thanks :D

Hmm, makes me think of maybe mapping a bunch of things to a steam controller for this use.
