I am working on version 1.4e, it incorporates your requested feature to disable the camera (preference option) and another preference option to reverse the arrow keys. I've been doing a lot of work at the USB driver level to detect feedback from the DreamCheeky Rocket Launcher. At the moment I'm working on debugging the USB code, as I'm presently getting timeouts on the USB communications port.

Development has been delayed as my Machine is in for repairs at the moment (last 2 weeks and counting!!).

In the mean time check out my wordpress blog for updates.

How about an option in the preferences to disable video completely? I have an AlchemyTV card installed and I get the camera window even if I don't have a camera attached.

Strictly speaking you do not need to reboot your machine (and you can quit the installer) if you already have the application and system extension (kext) installed. In this release at least the system extension has not changed. This may not be the case for a 10.5 release.

Why does this require a reboot?

Works awesome. This thing can shoot the whole way across my room when the batteries are at full charge -- probably like 20 feet.

Cool sound effects and pretty polished. I never used the Windows version, so I'm not sure which is better, but this certainly does the job.

I was hoping to find a seller in the US so I wouldn't have to pay $30 in shipping. The first link might be reasonable from the UK if their shopping cart weren't broken.

Found a good deal on eBay! Hopefully I'll be able to try out the software soon.

Since I've updated to Snow Leopard, there's the message "USB connection error - launcher disconnected, please refer to the console log for" and the launcher is not working, although it runs under Windows, how come ?
