OK, I was able to disconnect my old Dell clicky PS/2 keyboard from my OmniCube KVM, from Y2K, to connect directly to my desktop PC to retest. I easily reproduce it. So, it's not a KVM issue.

I am starting to notice a pattern. If I start up TI 99/4A, keys work fine until I quit that session and relaunch it/another cartridge. The key input stops working correctly until I exit MAME fully and retry. It seems like key inputs aren't reinitalized correctly between booted up session? I also did notice a few times, MAME would freeze and crash (goes away) after a few seconds without any error messages.

I recalled not having problems in MAME v0.175 with TI 99/4A games, but that was briefly. So, I decided to download and retry. No problems. Something seems to have broke in v0.176 for me. frown

I'm afraid I can't really help here ... first, I don't know how the TI emulation can have such an effect on the input subsystem, second, there were no TI-related changes from 0.175 to 0.176.

Might be yet another GCC 6 thing. Does someone have a (post) 0.176 built with MSVC or Clang or GCC 5 that he could try?
