[OS X TeX] Newbie on TeXShop with PlainTeX / XeTeX

I'm used to PlainTeX with Textures, and have recently installed
TeXShop et al. I finally got a simple test file to compile using:

>  *input epsf.tex
>  Testing.
>  *epsfbox{graphic filename}
>  *bye

(the asterisks stand for backslashes)

However, when I input an output routine and macro file with this
method, it stops at the first font def in my output routine file
 and can¹t find the font.

 So I found out that if I used XeTeX instead of Plain TeX, the text
printed, but then the graphic command was ignored.

Any suggestions? Thank you!
