The Finnish keyboard support sucks on openMSX due to problems caused by our weird AltGr key... Try to open console (F10) and write: "set kbd_mapping_mode POSITIONAL" this will disable the automatic remapping of keyboard. On console you can also say "type *" because from some reason there the keyboard works fine.

It's possible that this CP/M version only works for these MSX keyboards, but I don't think we have a SVI-738 emulated with a Finnish keyboard map (and the ROM that belongs with it). This may also complicate things....

If you want to add different localizations, BlueMSX resource page has quite a nice collection. (Swedish version is identical to Finnish version)

The ROM is one thing, the keyboard map is another... And as for that page, I don't know the source of these dumps, so we can't be sure they're clean dumps or have been modified by someone. We'd like to have clean original dumps.
