Additional to that the builds from speed of mac don't work for me. I get no sound, the games I tried load only up to the main menu, but when starting the game nothing happens anymore. I tried OpenGL and SoftGL Drivers in every Version he has on his site. Nothing works.
Oh wow, I found the source of the problem, which in fact is weird because it's the Input plugin.
I have a SpeedLink Competition Pro USB Joystick and a official PS3 Dual Shock Controller.
The Competition Pro was always connected but not used with PCSXR. With just that set up everything is fine, I can play with the Keyboard, sound an graphics just work fine.
With the PS3 Controller connected (doesn't matter if Bluetooth or USB) too, I don't get any sound and the game freezes when choosing something in the Main Menu (the game I tested was Metal Gear Solid).
Unplug the Competition Pro and have only the PS3 Controller connected and restart PCSXR everything works fine again.
edit: damn it get's even more weird. When everything works, I quit PCSXR, start it again and I have the problems again, restarting PCSXR doesn't help, but what helps is unplug the controller, start PCSXR everything is fine, restart PCSXR and problems are back, plug in the controller start PCSXR everything is fine again, quit, unplug start still everything fine.
What kind of sorcery is this?
Another thing, @SpeedOfMac in your blog post from 11/06 you wrote "Visual rumble option", where would that be? I can't find a rumble option and rumble doesn't work for me.
And while at it, if you resize the Input Configuration window the Device and Type drop downs will move down and up when they should stay right where they are.
While testing the Open GL plugin I noticed that some stuff isn't working yet, like in the elevator I can't see which level is selected, and the pixelization doesn't work either which lead to a funny scene...
