My most useful BASIC command

Post by jasonboche »

Back in the old days when I used to create countless programs and games in BASIC, or for that matter whenever I powered on the C64, one of the first commands I would enter was:

Code: Select all

POKE 650,255
It toggles on the keyboard auto repeat function.

When disabled (the default), if you stand on a key, the keystroke is registered only once.

When enabled (using the command above), if you stand on a key, the keystroke is repeated quickly (similar to a modern PC)

I thought I would share that; maybe someone else might find it useful.
