I've experimented today with this display bug that was mentioned yesterday in an other posting: the problem was that sometimes (randomly) pressing the [f] key displayed a part of the keyboard image in the number display.
Now I found out that the problems seems to be in the skin files - either there are some wrong entries or the emulator interprets some values incorrectly.
Although I still don't fully understand the purpose of all those entries in the skin file, I could find the lines which caused these display glitches and I've simply commented them out.
So if anyone has the same problem with his HP-15C emulator, just download the following file and unzip the modified skin-files into your emulator folder (I've also included the original files):
Since the same problem happens with the HP-12c emulator (not the Platinum!), I've also fixed the 12c skin-files (which are almost identical to the 15c files) and uploaded it here:
Let me know if these modified skins don't fix the problems on your computer.
And if anybody could explain how exactly the lines "POLY=..." work (i.e. what they do) - any detailed explanations would be appreciated.
