Summary MESS-specific 07701: coco2, coco3 [tetris]: Keyboard navigation controls do not work correctly when playing Tandy Tetris (26-3163)
Description Keyboard navigation controls do not work correctly when playing Tandy Tetris (26-3163). This issue happens with the coco12 and coco3 drivers. The diskette and cartridge versions of the game exhibit the same behavior.

J or left arrow key = move shape left
L or right arrow key = move shape right
K or up arrow key = rotates shape
, or down arrow key = drops the shape
BREAK = pauses or resumes shape drop

Left and right controls seem to be the most affected.

Just heard from another person that this worked in MAME 0.206 (unverified by me).

I just tested some previous versions of MAME. It was working up until 0.209 (possibly 0.210) and stopped working in 0.211. No idea what changed, but theory is it could be related to any changes with the PIA handling.

coco2: Converted all coco/dragon extension devices to use cts handlers.

It is a lot of code to go through, hopefully it is a simple typo somewhere.
