I recently bought a pre-owned Replica 1 and was able to use it yesterday for the first time. For the keyboard I am using a cheap modern keyboard with a USB wire. It hooks up to the board using a USB female to PS/2 keyboard adaptor I obtained from ReActive Micro. Keyboard works fine - all characters come up okay, the problem is there seems to be no working delete or back space function.
Does such a typing feature simply not exist for an Apple I due to technical limitations? Or is there a key combination I'm missing, or is this a possible compatibility problem with using a modern USB keyboard? I tested the keyboard with a laptop and ruled out any faults with the keyboard itself (delete and back space with a laptop works okay). If it is a compatibility issue, would a ps/2 keyboard be less inclined to have such issues? Any info would be appreciated. I've looked at the materials provided by Briel concerning the replica 1 and related Youtube clips, but can find no reference to such an issue or quirk. Thanks in advance for any help!
