Description

The input dialogs no longer light up those red dots/boxes that light up when you press buttons. This implies that whatever mechanism the input config dialogs use to get device input is broken.

Bisect results say that 4.0-2167 (Jasper's input cleanup) is the culprit. I haven't bisected within the branch, but can upon request.

I'm actually not sure if this is OS X-only, but I haven't seen Win/Lin users complain, so I'm assuming it is.

I tested it in Windows and it works fine, only seems to be an issue in OS X and *maybe Linux. I haven't been able to test it out in Linux.

Working perfectly well on Linux. It seems you've guessed correctly.

This is still an issue, and moreover the input isn't received in-game either; it's not limited to just the input config screen.

#4 Updated by pauldacheez over 5 years ago

issue 7691 has been merged into this issue.

#5 Updated by pauldacheez over 5 years ago

Can confirm this is still an issue.

Also, I should’ve mentioned this earlier, but checking “Background Input” fixes it.

  • Status changed from New to Fixed

I just merged a fix for this.

alexchandel However, the fix only affects the GUI. In-game, keyboard input without Background Input, with and without Render to Main, works for me on OS X without the patch, so if you're still experiencing problems, please file a new issue.
