(MacOS X does not like floating videoram.
Compile with –enable-fixedvideoram.
Calling SDLGUI in fullscreen mode does crash the program anyway.)
The default hotkeys set for a windows/Linux keyboard may not work with the Apple Keyboard. If you can not use the currently set hotkeys change the hotkeys section of the config file to the following:
Setup = 44:0x400 Quit = 113:0x400 Reboot = 114:0x400 Ungrab = 0:0x141 Debug = 100:0x400 Screenshot = 115:0x400 Fullscreen = 102:0x400
which set the following hotkey combinations:
Setup = LM+, Quit = LM+q Reboot = LM+r Ungrab = LS+LC+LA Debug = LM+d Screenshot = LM+s Fullscreen = LM+f
Sometimes the mouse behaviour gets weird, which makes the mouse unusable. The mouse arrow is jumping around or is invisible and it is producing a lot of “Reseting weird mouse packet” messages. To avoid this add the following line to your login profile:
Non NT line MS Windows kernels (Windows 95/98/99/00) do not support direct disk access (Windows NT/2K/XP do). This is a limitation of Cygwin, or rather a limitation of the windows itself.
Only Linux-ia32 (x86), MS-Windows and MacOSX (Intel) currently support JIT compiler for the CPU emulator. This is not a design limitation or a bug in other operating systems, it's just lack of manpower willing to work on JIT support for the other systems.
