Re: Beebem teletext hold char (158) issue

Are we any closer to a shiny new Beebem release? :D Thanks for the nudge, it's pretty much ready to release now, it just needs doing... :wink: I've been debugging some of the Emulator Trap stuff, don't let that delay releasing a version of BeebEm without the EMTRAPs branch.

Re: Beebem teletext hold char (158) issue

I believe this issue is fixed in the latest code in GitHub, but we haven't released a new binary with this fix included, so you'll still see the issue if you're using BeebEm 4.14 or earlier.

I should really get on releasing the new version soon... :-
