This release has a bit of an interface change… That’s the cosmetic stuff. Behind the scenes though there is been some improvements as I’ve mentioned in a previous post:

  • Distribution created by automated build
  • Changed application identifier from “com.david.USB Missile Launcher NZ” to “com.david.USBMissileLauncherNZ” – this resolves issues with PackageMaker 3.0 – preferences are also reset as a result of this. Users could also delete the file “~/Library/Preferences/com.david.USB Missile Launcher NZ” if they want to.
  • Enhanced deployment package so that System Extensions (Kext) files don’t always need to be installed, and thus don’t need to reboot
  • Code Cleanup in USBMissileControl, DeviceNotification procedure
  • Found and fixed an issue with menu controls for the launcher – specifically move up/right
  • Fix an issue in Germal localisation language translation file
  • Major internal engineering change with main window and NSResponder
  • Modified driver code to handle USB device connection issues better and in a more friendly way to avoid application crashes
  • Video window can now be closed and re-opened
  • Main application window cannot be closed
  • Fixed a bug in MissileControl for handling multiple launchers – only impacted there was DreamRocketII style launcher connected
  • Launch controls drawer now has background picture (yea, big deal – I know).

I was unable to determine if the Mac software version for the USB Missile Launcher would work with Mac OS 10.5 with an Intell processor. Can anyone verify this for me? Thanks!

Hi Daniel…

I’ve updated the source code package online…

Refer to the downloads section on this web site. The released source code now matches the 1.4.11 release.

Will this work with the new wireless launcher?

I was bought this as a present but I have Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit running on my computer, is there any way that I can get this working?
