Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

Patch 3 does stop CTRL characters appearing. The repeated characters are still happening here on the Mojave iMac but oddly not on a virtual Mojave on VMWare Fusion! I have updated to Qt 5.12.0 beta but that reports itself as not fully optimised for macOS 10.14. I am a bit stuck for now, and may have...

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

CTRL characters is one of the effects and a press of the CTRL key restores normality. There is a second condition, multiple characters and an erratic clock. What seem to happen is that on sleep or a spaces change the clock stops. When RPCEmu becomes active again the clock seems to run fast to catch ...

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

There is a bit of a keyboard issue. On awaking the iMac a previously opened RPCEmu may either show multiple characters for each keypress or incorrect characters. Open RPCEmu, sleep the Mac and then later wake it up. Something similar happens with Mission Control, open RPCEmu in a Space, move to anot...

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

It goes wrong on clicking OK to restart, the RISC OS window shows vertical smearing of the backdrop and a force quit is required. I believe, or hope, it will be fixed in the next release which may be soon. It is RISC OS version dependent, OS 4.02 seems OK on the Mac build but OS 5.25 is not.

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

Thanks for the updated patch. The 'here' link is however pointing to the first version. Once the later patch was downloaded a rebuilt RPCEmu does read the rpc.cfg file. The downside is that attemtping to save changed preferences crashes RPCEmu in much the same way as happens on a Linux build, so thi...

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

A bit more digging shows that the Mac/Qt RPCEmu is completely ignoring rpc.cfg. cmos.ram is being read and written. This is the log :- Compiler: Clang version 4.2.1 Compatible Apple LLVM 10.0.0 (clang-1000.11.45.2) OS: SysName = Darwin OS: Release = 18.0.0 OS: Version = Darwin Kernel Version 18.0.0:...

Re: RPCEmu 0.9.0 and Macs - beta testers wanted

Thank you very much for this work. beta_testers% += 1 I have never used Xcode or Qt before but the build was easy, thanks to the very clear instructions, on this late 2013 non-retina iMac running Mojave. Both interpreter and recompiler versions were built. RPCEmu is working very well, running the la...
