"New keyboard" - I clicked thru the prompts but Os X was unable to recognise the keyboard,although it accepts it (obviously,as it functions as mentioned before) as well as the fact i am able to scroll thru letters in a text editor.



* When trying to load the game with joystick connected,
in the border of the load diagnostic page the status of the game reads as "running"??

I am running what i know to be the latest versions of all the software in question,including the SDLMame Integrator...yada,yada.

BTW,
Thanks to everyone for their help.

Corporations should hire me to find bugs that nobody else does.

Hi there, I acknowledge this is an old topic being bumped.
I'm having the exact same issue, seeing as this is an old issue with this specific device + os x + sdl, what are the chances of figuring out a fix for this ?

I tried looking up the definition for HID Boot interface and googled for more SDL issues with this. Couldn't find much about this in relation with SDL. I wonder if there is something I can do at the OS level or some way to change a magical setting somewhere.

I'm running Mac OS 10.6.4, SDLMame 0.139 (stable) 64-bit Intel only build with SDL 1.2.14.

Output of sdlmame with -verbose flag:
Quote:
Parsing mame.ini
Parsing mame.ini
Setting SDL_VIDEO_GL_DRIVER = '/System/Library/Frameworks/OpenGL.framework/Libraries/libGL.dylib' ...


And then it hangs, I doubt the above output is of any use.

The X-Arcade has defective USB firmware that causes it to be incompatible with Mac OS X. They know it, they don't care, they continue to claim on the box it's compatible even though it isn't.

You're absolutely right.
They also claim (off record) the bug reside in the OS, not in their firmware.

Did you tried to get rid of the AppleHIDMouseAgent.plugin ?
it's in sys/lib/UserEventPlugin/
