I’ve been away for a few days and while I was away I had the opportunity to create a version of the USB Missile Launcher software that works under Mac OS 10.3.9 and supports the DreamCheeky Rocket Launcher.

I need to package the release (in the next day or two) and make it available for download. I will update this post when it is ready.

[31 December 2006] Update: There is a holdup with the release of the software. Sorry. My development machine has been crashing and I’ve spent some considerable time investigating the reason as to why. Looks like the video card in my eMac (basically the motherboard) is toasted!

It’s all rather nasty. The log below isn’t mine (it is all but identical to mine though).

USB Rocket LauncherUSB Missile Launcher NZ can be used to control a USB Missile Launcher and the DreamCheeky Rocket Launcher. perform covert operations from your desk. Fire missiles at passing colleagues. Strap a camera on top of the Launcher and record the video of your covert operations.

The updated 1.4d has added support for DreamCheeky Rocket Launcher:

  • updated driver (kext) for USB Missile launcher to Universal Binary
  • created driver (kext) to support DreamCheeky Rocket launcher (Universal Binary)
  • launcher software controls both launchers at the same time
  • updated driver (kext) source code included in distribution
  • changed internal code for smoother control of the launcher (eliminating stop/start motion that is not present when you use the keyboard controls)
  • when controlling the launcher you can use the numeric keypad. For the DreamCheeky Rockey Launcher at least, you will get a finer motion control over the launcher
  • this release has had some problems in testing (I get an occasional “beach ball” – it pauses the application for a bit and goes away). As of this release the issue has not been identified

Warning:

This release has had some problems in testing (I get an occasional “beachball” – it pauses the application for a bit and goes away). As of this release the issue has not been identified

Tips:

When controlling the launcher you can use the numeric keypad. For the DreamCheeky Rockey Launcher at least, you will get a finer motion control over the launcher.
