Is it only the Area51 script that doesn't draw composites, or does the function not work at all? For example, does this barebones script draw anything?

bm = reaper.JS_LICE_CreateBitmap(true, 1, 1)
reaper.JS_LICE_Clear(bm, 0xFFFF0000)
tv = reaper.JS_Window_FindChildByID(reaper.GetMainHwnd(), 1000)
cOK = reaper.JS_LICE_Composite(tv, 100, 100, 100, 100, bm, 0, 0, 1, 1)
reaper.JS_Window_InvalidateRect(tv, 100, 100, 200, 200, false)

I tested VKeys_GetState and Mouse_GetState and both seemed to work fine on my OSX High Sierra x64. To my pleasant surprise, VKeys_GetState even returned modifier keys, so perhaps the bug that I mentioned before has been fixed without me noticing (or remembering?) it.

I took a look at the Area51 script, and I can confirm that it doesn't draw anything on my OSX system (when I hold Cmd+Shift+leftdrag), but unfortunately the script is far too long and complex for me to make head or tails of it. Do you perhaps have a minimal example of a script that doesn't get keyboard inputs and doesn't draw anything?

The script did crash a few times while I tested it, and I had to use the "Panic" script to remove the keyboard intercepts before I could type again. I would recommend that you use pcall throughout the script, so that if the script encounters an error, it can gracefully remove all intercepts and terminate, instead of just crashing.
