Help wanted
I'm looking for someone who could translate GXMame (message boxes, errors messages, menu...) into langages other than French and English

if you're interested.

update again
I finally found a computer where GXMame crashed at the begining, that allows me to find a bug that some people reported. I hope that now GXMame will work on every configuration, thanks everybody for all your bug reports.

I also improved a little bit the joystick support: user can keep a direction pressed to scroll through the game list.

update again
Yep again this time is a stupid bug that was crashing GXMame when user tried to save options for non vector games

By the way, I began to work on the Joystick support, you can now use a joystick (/dev/js0 only for the moment, will be configurable after) where up and down allow you to select games and the button 0 allows you to launch the game.

I'm using the code from gtkjoy by David Boynton, on trylinux.com. Thanks to sté from the Xmame mailing list who provides the link to this page.
