Mavericks 10.9 disconnections are fixed on 1.1.2!

Postby Rodrigo » Fri Oct 25, 2013 1:33 am

UPDATE: The Joystick Mapper version 1.1.2 update which fixes this issue is online! Just update it! No need to do that anymore :)


Original post:

This is an issue with the appnap feature introduced in the Mavericks update, until I fix that, please Disable App Nap for Joystick Mapper.

To do that, please do the following:
1. Locate Joystick Mapper.app in the Applications folder;
2. Control-click it;
3. Then choose "Get info";
4. Click "Prevent App Nap"

Is it possible to disable this feature in XCode and rebuild so that the one downloaded from App Store doesn't have App Nap capability?

it might be an unrelated problem. if you have a ps3 controller, try use it with the USB cable attached and tell me if it works.

I have a wired xbox 360 controller and I turned off App Nap but it is still disconnecting after about 30 secs. any suggestions on what other issue it could be?
Thank you
Also I'm attempting to use it on borderlands 2

It still looks like the app nap issue. Are ou sure it is disabled?
Maybe it is a driver issue, do you have the latest version? IF not, please install it, if yes, please try an older version :oops:

People, Just to be sure if the app nap is really doing their thing, please do this:

- Open Joystick Mapper, activate a preset and hide/minimize the app.
- use it normally for a while
- if it disconnects:
- Open "Activity Monitor.app"
- Click the "Energy" tab
- See if the "App nap" column says "YES" for Joystick Mapper, if so, it is not disabled. :)

I am saying this because some people complained about it nor working after disabling app nap, but in fact, that feature was still enabled....
just to be sure :)

If you still have disconnects with App Nap disabled, you have a problem related to your controller, it is easy to fix, look here:
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=129#p436

Also, I got the App Nap problem fixed here. I hope Apple approves the update soon!
