Is the MarlinSimulator being maintained? How do I use for a rotary button and an SD card?

Working off https://github.com/Ultimaker/Ultimaker2Marlin

at SHA 12b4cb9fad232411dd2b1cafe821547ee5f1e272.

I can build and run MarlinSimulator (W7Pro, Code::Works 16.01 with MinGW, SDL 1.2.15, all freshly installed), and get to here:

usim1.thumb.PNG.cc80f06d42ded3fca4e589df6086cd39.PNG

Clicking anywhere or pressing random keys does nothing (OK, ESC exits!).

Clicking on the red square turns it to green, and then the firmware displays an error message:

usim2.thumb.PNG.9202c130e71057b9c6cd22026147b3d6.PNG

Am I doing something wrong? There are no instructions on how to run the beast (I'm grateful it even exists!). Has anyone other than Daid successfully run it?

Thanks,

/ji

It's intended to be used with the arrow keys and the enter key (ok, and ESC :)).

And it needs a bit of patience - depending on the menu it needs sometimes more than one key stroke on the arrow keys to move the selection.

Does it not function?

oh, ...and put the mouse aside...

Brilliant. Everything works fine now.

I'm taking the opportunity of having to disassemble my UM2 to install the UM2+ upgrade to add second display, which I can read while standing up!
