[...standard ASCII table...] I now have a complete understanding on how things like the savegame windows work (Inputs esc or 1-9) or the Yorp messages (Dismiss with 'enter') So any patches required to change their inputs are easy enough to generate.
We were talking about an alternative way of placing a name in the highscore section (viewtopic.php?f=24&t=2886). I'm also interested in a comparable Vorticons solution as well.
Same goes for the savegame inputs. an up and down arrow solution for choosing the right save-slot would be neat.

depending on how ambitious these requests are, I'd like to discuss ideas and possible solutions with you.

It'd certainly take a bit of doing;I have a rough idea of how text input works but it'd need some serious research to see just what can and can't be done with it. I'm optimistic, but it won't be easy, especially in Vorticons which has a different setup to the somewhat more sensible Galaxy.
