Post subject:  Keeps saying "Event processing timed out. Event dropped."

Hi,

When I use PearPC to emulate Mac OS X 10.4, it works just fine, but occasionally the mouse stops working (It won't move even though it is 'captured' in the emulator) and the Command Prompt has multiple lines of "Event processing timed out. Event dropped." :sad: . And it appears to generate more of those lines when I try to move the mouse. Is there a fix to this?

Best Regards,
SKCro

Simple answer: No. This is a long-standing issue with pearpc.
You can try to slow down the screen refresh (by increasing the number in the prefs), see if it helps in any way.

Otherwise, check out Qemu for emulating 10.3

Hi,

That 10 msec interval makes PearPC appear snappy, but is more likely to result in what you experience.
Try 60, or 80, or even 100 and see whether stability improves.

redraw_interval_msec = 60

Best,

I tried that and it did not improve. (I know this is off topic, but) Apparently, Disk Utility crashes PearPC.

Also, emulation in QEMU is even SLOWER than in PearPC. I have changed the RAM amount multiple times with no luck :sad: . Any other ideas?
