GZDoom on M1 Mac: Keys get stuck sometimes

Postby Madoc » Tue May 03, 2022 2:22 pm

I'm running the latest GZDoom on an M1 Mac.
Keys sometimes get stuck, i.e. GZDoom sometimes doesn't process a key up / key down event.
Also, sometimes GZDoom seems to not receive any keyboard events for several seconds.

Here is what I tried, all with the same result:
* Installed GZDoom both via Homebrew and manually (i.e., download + unpack Zip, move app to `/Applications`).
* Switched from OpenGL to truecolor software renderer.
* Starting GZDoom both from iTerm and by double clicking the app.

Any hints on where I could look for a fix? Any options I could change?

Also, does anyone run GZDoom on and iMac and can confirm that they DON'T have the same issue?

Thanks everyone!

Please try a git build.

I have never had problems as you describe. If you are using a magic keyboard, make sure it is charged.
