It’s ALIVE 4 May 2017

Posted by David Wilson in General.
trackback

It’s been some time since this was last working on recent operating systems.
The good news is that it’s alive and again controlling launchers on MacOS Sierra.
First real test has been successful.

There’s a little way to go before I can think about a release…

David Wilson - 4 June 2017

Here’s a beta release for testing.

Important: Support for the original grey launcher and the original dream cheeky launcher is dropped. The good news is that the kext that used to be required to drive the launchers is no longer required. Details are in the About Dialog.

Can’t get the link to work….
So there is no hope to get my green Dream Cheeky to work on my Mac?

OK, lets try that link again. http://camera.dgw.kiwi/USBMissileLauncherNZ/USB_Missile_Launcher_NZ.zip

There were 3 x DreamCheeky Green/Black Missile Launchers. Versions 2 and 3 were proper HID (Human Interface) Devices. So they will work with this version of the software.

Version 1 … well… that’s not a HID device. To get that to work I need to install a KEXT in /Library/Extensions … and it needs to be digitally signed. I have requested a signing ability from Apple and am awaiting a response.

DreamCheeky (Green and Black)
USB Vendor ID 0x1941 6465
USB Product ID 0x8021 32801

Easiest way to find out what you have is to plug it in. Lets hope it’s a V2 or V3.

Perfect! Now it works, Thanks a lot!

David Wilson - 6 June 2017

I have a new version available.

Internal fixes mostly.

1.9.0b2 – Fixes for temporary file random internal name in AVRecorder – Resolves compiler warnings with Reachability – kext is no longer included in the application bundle, not required. – Compiled with Xcode 9 Beta.

1.9.0b1 – This release no longer requires a kext installed in /Library/Extensions – The launchers are now controlled as USB HID devices – in order to achieve this outcome support for the original grey launcher has been dropped along with support for the original dream cheeky (green/black) launcher. Note there are different internal models of the dream cheeky green/black launcher – so the one you have may not be one of the originals. – The launcher preferences panel has been removed
