USB Missile Launcher – Video Support – Alpha Release 14 October 2006

Posted by David Wilson in General.

USBMissileLauncherIt’s here!

Version 1.4 alpha (yes, only an alpha release at this stage). It is stable, I don’t know if I’m happy with the interface, size, position, and the way it is working. Best way to figure this out is to release what I have and get feedback.

The release notes are as follows:

1.4 1 Oct06 Added Video Camera Support

  • initial alpha release integrated Quartz Composer video stream
  • this build now uses source code from Apple (WhackedTV) as video source
  • Video stream (on screen display only at this stage) incorporates Gun Sight target
  • Video Stream can be recorded
  • You can use Video Settings to change your video source (works with iSight, built-in iSight, Firewire DV Cameras)
  • Note: you cannot reopen the video window after you have closed it. You need to stop and restart the program
  • Note: testing with 10.5 Leopard (build 10.5 (9A241e) has revealed some USB driver issues this is yet to be investigated

Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.

And yes as noted above I have tested the USB Missile Launcher on the developer release of 10.5. There seems to be a USB driver issue, so if you are playing in this area you have been warned.

Dear david

It seams you know how to edit the BIN and IRS file to make this thing work. Can you tell me which program I need to edit it, so i can make a new app for windows…

Hello Alex and Roger.

The software I have written will only run on Mac OS X. You’ll need to buy a Mac to run it.

For windows users your options are (as I see it):
1. Buy a Mac
2. E-Mail the original Windows developers (by finding their e-mail address if it was included with the Launcher when shipped)
3. Start programming yourself
4. Buy a Mac
5. I will accept significant cash payments if I can quit my day job and learn some windows stuff.

hi, did you update by any chance support to 10.5?

5. David Wilson - 4 February 2008

I can confirm that the software runs on 10.5

All the development for the “Rocket Baby” support was done under 10.5

Make sure you have the latest release 1.4.10 and you’re good to go.

– David
