|Summary||06320: any computer with lx800 printer: Various problems when using centronics printers|
There are some issues that occur when loading a printer into the centronics slot :
1. If lx800 is used, by default the printer's artwork takes precedence over the computer screen, covering it up. You can go to the video options and select the computer screen, but in reality there should be 2 screens, one for the computer and one for the printer's control panel.
2. A printer has various keys assigned to operate the buttons. These are activated together with the computer's keys. For example if you follow the sorcerer example below, whenever E is pressed the printer will eject a sheet of paper. There's no way to switch the keyboard between machines, unless you want to reassign all the printer's keys.
3. Now, while it appears that none of the centronics printers in MAME are actually working at this time, the screen and keyboard issues still need to be addressed.
4. How do you get a print-file output from a printer?
