Ok, new problem... cry

My shiny brand new X-Arcade Tankstick seems to be working fine in the OS (10.5.5) (every key is responding, registered in system profiler)

But as soon as I launch SDLMAME (0.128u1), it just hang there, eating 100% of one processor core.
Force quit has no effect.
Nothing to do except restarting the MacPro.

Same result if I launch from MameTunes.

Can't post the crashing report: too big...

I also remember that I've trashed AppleHIDMouseAgent.plugin and AirPortUserAgent.plugin from sys/lib/UserEventPlugin since it (AppleHIDMouseAgent) was source of pb with X-Arcade. (as told on their web site)

Does no one use an X-Arcade with OSX SDLMAME ?

Any thought why SDLMAME crash with X-Acrade ?

Unfortunately, I don't know enough about the inner workings of the X-Arcade to be able to offer any real advice... frown

Is this device seen as a keyboard by OSX, and if so, could your french keymap setings be interfering with it?

The device is seen as an X-Arcade device (namely) by Mac OS Sys-Info
It act as a keyboard (you actualy can type in TextEdit)

I don't think my french keymap setting as anything to do since SDL hang way before it got there.

I was hoping Mr Belmont would have a clue...
Thank for your support though Dave... wink

Just curious...

What happens if you disconnect your keyboard (leaving the X-Arcade attached), and launch using MAMETunes with the Easy settings enabled?

Just did it : same thing.
MameTunes launch fine but as soon as I launch a game, SDLMAME hangs.
No window, nothing.

You should know that it works perfectly with MAME OS X (0.124)

I've no idea what to do next... frown

Well, I'm afraid I'm stumped as well...

I would suggest a google search for 'x arcade in mame' to see if there may be another forum that might be able to provide you with an answer...

This may be useful as well -

I have already spent *hours* on the net but nothing close to this pb...

I may drop a mail to X-Gaming support... Who knows...

Thanks for your precious help and support Dave.
It's really sad having this baby just sitting there...
