DT doesn't accept mouse clicks

Recommended Posts

Hello there!

I installed DropTeam on my Media System(G4 1.33DP/Radeon9800/10.4.6/custom resolution 1360x768), and after several days of the updater not wanting to do anything, it finally updated.

So I ran the application, and I can't click on anything, and the screen is in the lower left corner of the display. I can run the cursor all over, but anything that I click on, doesn't respond. I tried tabbing through the registration, but that did not seem to do anything.

Oddly enough the only way to quit is to press shift-cmd-q, to log out, as cmd-q doesn't do anything. Which almost leads me to believe that the mouse is clicking through to the Finder, instead of the DropTeam screen

Any suggestions?

I had some problems with the retail version where the keyboard configuration was lost and commands and mouse click didn't work in-game. But they worked in the account/network/controls part of the game.

Check there if you have a valid keyboard and mouse configuration.

Once again, how would I do that?

The mouse clicks do NOT register with the game. Cmd-q doesn't even quit the game. I can NOT create an account because the game does not register my mouse clicks, I'm not even sure about whether it is registering the keyboard completely.

Smithcraft, we've never seen this problem before but maybe running it in your native resolution of 1360x768 would help. To try this, you can edit the file called DropTeamSettings.dat in your home directory. Change the entries for DisplayWidth and DisplayHeight to 1360 and 768, respectively. Then try running DropTeam again.

If it still doesn't work then you can try running in a window instead of fullscreen, at least as a test to learn more. To do this, edit that same file and change your DisplayWidth and DisplayHeight back to the default of 800 and 600, then change the entry for Fullscreen from 1 to 0.

If, while making these kinds of edits to the DropTeamSettings.dat file, you get truly hosed at any point, you can delete the file and run again to have a default one created for you.

That is to say, I think that the file is created either after log in, or after account creation. Since I can't do either, I don't get a settings file.

I've looked in the DropTeam folder, Application Support folders, and in the Preference folders in both the main Library, and my user Library folders. I also did a global search for any file with dropteam in it, and it didn't show up.

It's in your home directory, Smith (e.g. /Users/Smithcraft or just ~/). It's created when the game starts (based on your screenshot, you are already far enough along that it should be created).

Well, a completely fresh install didn't work. :(

I would be willing to continue on with this, but having to log out to get the application to quit is, well, I think there is something wrong with that process.

Thank you for your assistance everyone!
