Very interesting. I went to this site and read the posts. I remembered that when I installed mamece it asked me if I wanted to overwrite the gx.dll and I said yes. I'm wondering if I would have said "no" if I would still have the problem with the buttons not working. Does anyone know where I could get back my old gx.dll file.
