Hi Roger,
why didn't you login with your account rogerjowett?

Well all Emulators support french keyboards (in theory)
What you need are the french system roms.

  • It's not broken, it just hasn't been fixed yet.

You can download the French ROM here: ROM Table - CPCWiki - The Ultimate Amstrad CPC Community & Encyclopedia!

Save it in the correct sub-directory and then choose it as the Firmware/OS you want the Emulator to use.

My work in progress of arnold supports french keyboards.

bmp2scr is a tool for spectrum I think. I think you need my tool bmp2cpc, or another to convert.
I did not try the monitor on it's side, because my monitor is not healty and I didn't want to break it. But the problem is that everyone would have to turn their monitor on it's side, it's not a great solution.

to give fast 320x200 at 16 colours on the plus it would need it's own dedicated 32k ram, there is not enough memory bandwidth I don't believe to give this.
the aleste did it, but it sacrificed some cpu speed.
