Yes, that's the point.
I've read this also into the compendium.

All my code works well (Joystick / keyboard / mouse) as long as I get big relative deltas on the X or Y axis.
In this case, I misinterpret the "extra packets" as "keyboards actions" instead of "mouse values" which results into fake keyboard actions.

I've read many things about this extra packets mechanism but nothing about how it is implemented into the Atari.

I'm also curious about the $F6 opcode and the "Status Packet Data" described into the compendium. Any info on these ?

0xF6 : Status Packet Header - This codes indicate the beginning of a multiple byte status packet.

0xF7 : Absolute Mouse Position
0xF8-0xFB : Relative Mouse Position
0xFC : Time-of-Day
0xFD : Joystick Report
0xFE : Joystick 0 Event
0xFF : Joystick 1 Event

Status Packet Data Any When the ikbdstate variable (found in the KBDVECS structure) is non-zero, it represents the number of remaining bytes to retrieve that are part of a status
packet and should thus not be treated as any of the above codes.

Message board and comments are now read-only

Due to abuse of the message boards we have put the entire site in read-only mode. That means you can't post new threads or reply to old messages and you can't add comments in VideoDB and PicDB.

Some messages have been erased from reading, but are stored in case they need to surface again.

After 17 years and 45000 messages we're shutting down due to one person.
