Hi,

For Mac OS 9.1/9.2 you might want to use the usb mouse and keyboard:
You can try adding "-device usb-mouse -device usb-kbd" (without quotes) to your command line.

This will not work with Mac OS 9.0.

Cat_7 help me back, I got the issue.

When I move Mouse to down, the mouse goes to Windows taskbar. Anyone knows the answer?

Hi,

If I'm correct in assuming you are using a Qemu build from our forum, please try to add "-sdl" (without quotes) to your command line.

I'm using QEMU 3.0.0. I added this command, but it not works.

Hi,

No pasa nada?
Nothing happens? Or do you get an error? It should be lower case -SDL (-sdl)

Cat_7 I found the wrong code in my batch file. Now SDL works completely. Thanks.
