Hi Guys,


I was wondering if I was to get a French 6128 Plus, could I fit a keyboard from a UK CPC 6128 (non plus) to it and then run a UK Burning rubber cartridge - would that be a way to get it working with a UK key map? Obviously the colours of the keys would be different but from what I can see on the net both machines have the same connection for the Keyboard membrane so unless the ribbon is located in a totally different place I'd image it would be possible...?


Cheers,


Damien

Yes of course, it's from this very forum:


Amstrad 6128 PLUS


I didn't post it before because I figured everyone knew already and I was just being a dumbass!


It looks like stickers might be the way to goor retro fitting the upper part of a 6128 keyboard.


If I ever manage to get a non-UK plus I'll investigate sticker options.....

I just asked because someone might land here by doing a search, so it'd be good to redirect them to the original...
