If none of the old Apricot threads help, then ask question there and maybe link to your post here when asking question there. Probably have a better chance getting exact specific help. I don't know if there has been specific Apricot updates since several years earlier.

The issue mentioned is same thing with MAME and that is the rom for keyboard has not been dumped yet or if it already has been dumped someone would have to point to where in case rom set has been uploaded somewhere.


This is an older reference page (eventually to be closed and replaced with undumped Wiki) along with mentioned 'wanted' items
