So I can't warm reset my 1200. The keys individually work fine, but together. Using 3.1.4.1. Any thoughts?

At least I can say it’s not because of 3.1.4.
That bug would have been found!
Believe me, resetting is one of a beta-testers main task 😆

He he, true. Can I transplant a A500 keyboard onto a A1200 for testing purposes? If it works with the A500 keyboard, I know I need to look closer at the 1200 keyboard and take it apart.

I've read about people with the exact same issue you describe. Keys work in other use cases (like, software that use the Amiga keys for keyboard commands) etc. and I'm willing to bet your keys all work fine independently.

If that's the case, the culprit was sometimes the Amiga's keyboard microcontroller, or mpu.
