I'm working on getting the keyboard functional for chat in our game. I've discovered several rather interesting things about both our font and the Sony-provided keyboard library.

First off, our font is almost - but not exactly - ASCII.
Second, the keyboard library returns values that are almost - but not exactly - ASCII.

Of course, they're both "not ASCII" in different ways. For example, the ASCII code for { is 0x7B. However, our 0x7B is actually a little iconic representation of the Playstation's X button. However, this is less of a problem than you'd think, because if you push { on the keyboard, the library returns 0x60, which is ` - unless you're using our font, in which case it's ~. If you want to get { - er, I mean, Xbutton - you have to press ). And ironically, if you want to get ), you have to press (.

Confused yet?
