    I’m wondering if there’s an on-screen keyboard I can somehow initiate via an xbox controller?

    I searched but only found this vaguely related post:

    ZXSpectrum emulator and the 'onscreen keyboard'

    I’d like to play some Chuckie Egg on ZX Spectrum but know it will ask to select [j] for joystick input [r] to remap keys and then to start game. Wondering if can somehow get an on-screen keyboard which I can trigger with my xbox controller to then select a joystick, and then hope that kempston or interface II may also work with my controller.

    …Basically I really don’t want to be having to get out a physical k/board if I can help it. THanks

    AFAIK Chuckie Egg doesn’t support joysticks. You can map keys to a game controller using the ZEsarUX emulator. More details at the link below.

    Incidentally, you can bring up a keyboard overlay in lr-fuse by pressing select on your controller.
