Desmume 0.9 Mac Controls

I am running Desmume 0.9 on my Macbook. For the first few minutes of gameplay everything was working fine. However, now I can't use the left control button so I can no longer move left. On the controls menu an input for the left button is not present. Inputs for up, down and right are all there. What is wrong?

Re: Desmume 0.9 Mac Controls

I'm having the same issue with the mac version.  Is anyone know if there is something I can do to fix this?

Re: Desmume 0.9 Mac Controls

I just downloaded this emulator the other day, delighted to find that my new Operating System of choice actually has a working DS emulator. xD

And it works pretty brilliantly...apart from not having any left key nor an option to set one. So for now I'm just playing a game I don't need it; the new Fire Emblem game..but yeah, I'd like to enquire about this little issue too.

Re: Desmume 0.9 Mac Controls

In the meantime you can assign a left key by editing the preferences file by hand. You'll find it at ~/Library/Preferences/com.DeSmuME.DeSmuME.plist.

Re: Desmume 0.9 Mac Controls

Found it, can't understand how to edit it though.

EDIT: Okay, odd, edited the file but didn't see an option for 'Right' in there. Setting that manually in the Emulator seems to set left...so now I've got Left and Right, but that was all rather weird. At least it works, thanks for the advice.

Opening that file in TextEdit didn't display it properly, so I downloaded a program called PlistEdit Pro and used that.

After opening it, you'll see things on the left like "Left" and "L Button" with their values to the right. Values like "vV". There wasn't a left one, so I added it and made the value "aA" [I've remapped all the control pad to WASD 'cause it feels more natural in games] and yeah. Then I went into the emulator and whatever didn't work, fixed in the preferences there. Left and Right seem a bit fiddly, but with editing the Plist and Preferences it's possible to get them both working without too much effort.

I've tried several text editors and none would display it properly. Previewing it in the Finder works however(!). For those with the Apple Developer Tools installed there's a useful application called Property List Editor (you'll find it in /Developer/Applications/Utilities/). It does only the mere basics but is on the other hand free.


Edit: I looked through some of the Mac-specific code and found the bug at line 123 in input.m. The line reads:

[NSArray arrayWithObjects:@"Dictionary", [NSData dataWithBytes:&@selector(bindingForKeyLeft:) length:sizeof(SEL)], keyboardMap , nil] , PREF_KEY_RIGHT,

Thanks Arakun, I've fixed that line in the repository.

Re: Desmume 0.9 Mac Controls

I'm having the same problem. It was working for a really long time, and all of a sudden the Left key started sticking. Then when I restarted DeSmuME it just stopped working. I tried to change the control preferences but there's no option for LEFT. Can someone clarify how to fix this problem? I can find the .plist file of that name... under Library/Preferences

Re: Desmume 0.9 Mac Controls

this information is old, the mac version is entirely different nowadays. there is no more useful plist file.
