I've tried fixing it using 659 and 772. I've recompiled it twice both using the GUI and the CLI. I've deleted all preferences that I'm aware of, but the keyboard just will not work. Ever. No matter what I do, it won't pick up the controls, it won't let me change the controls, it just absolutely refuses to work. I'm completely at a loss now.

I'm running OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 on a mid-2010 13" MacBook Pro, compiling using the very latest versions, downloaded straight from the source.

You've deleted ~/Library/Application Support/OpenEmu/Bindings Configurations/Default.oebindings ?

And do you happen to have old beta system plugins sitting in ~/Library/Application Support/OpenEmu/Systems ?

Yes I have, and no I don't, probably because this is the first time I've ever tried to use it. It looks really good too, but it just won't work...

Sorry we don't have enough information to go on and no one in our IRC channel has been able to replicate this problem.

This is the kind of thing where we'd need an in-depth debugging session.

Well how would I go about doing that then?

I was having the same issue.

Clobber mentioned in irc that Chrome impacts OpenEmu due to its implementation of the Gamepad API. Here is how I fixed it:

  1. Quit Google Chrome
  2. Run OpenEmu (quit and reopen if it was already running)
  3. Test Keyboard, it should work.

Subsequent launches of OpenEmu while Google Chrome is running take input as expected.

Quitting Chrome and restarting OpenEmu worked for me too. Like @kevinrivers said

I'm experiencing this issue on 10.7 without Chrome running. Quitting all other apps and re-opening OpenEmu doesn't work, nor does deleting Default.oebindings. (I'm on OSX 10.7).

Can I get you any other information?

One more note: I actually experience this problem only with Nestopia. Playing a Game Boy game or using a different NES core seems to avoid the problem.

I was having this same issue in a MacbookPro10,1 running OSX 10.9.1 and tried fixing it by deleting ~/Library/Application Support/OpenEmu/Bindings Configurations/Default.oebindings and restarting Chrome, without much luck.

In my case the problem was iTerm2 (http://www.iterm2.com/). After closing iTerm2 and restarting OpenEmu the keyboard works fine.

Just want to say that I've been away for a few days, but hgonzale solved it for me. Turns out it was because of iTerm2 all along. Close that, restart OpenEmu, then you can open iTerm2 again.

Just figured out my problem. Webroot starts a secure keyboard setting when it opens and this was preventing keyboard input in OpenEmu. I can turn off the feature, but I'm curious why input is prevented in OpenEmu if it's the active application that I'm trying to type in. Wish I could find more info on Webroot's feature...

DOSBox can steal the keyboard from OpenEmu also. I had this same problem with a game in DOSBox open before I started OpenEmu. Stopping DOSBox fixed it.

Ghostavio - Do you have any anti-virus software running, or any application that starts in the background when you log into your computer?
