Ok, lets keep Mamesick out of this, as this is a hopeless/ dead loss case and the situation is deadlocked. I admit that you really have your enlightened moments, where you are nice, helpful and have informative advices/explanations, but in the wink of an eye this can turn into the opposite. I have a thick skin and beside all the cursing from your side, you are at least still able to answer the questions, so i dont mind the cursing before. I still will never forget the first posts we had, where you managed to write 27 times the word "fuck" in three sentences and if i wouldnt know it better, i would say you are a true "ex-yugoslavian" .
Take a look into the amiga thread at emuversal for example and look how you behaved to a first post person. I dont see any reason, that would explain and justify your and other devs (not all) answers. It is no wonder, that you didnt experienced in 19 years of MAME a case, that a first post user could be useful, if you ask me. I would like to help in that particular amiga-case, but i am scared and afraid it could turn out the same, for the person i would like to introduce to you, not to mention some "nah, keep away that middle-man stuff, (b)uh-man". Sometimes it doesnt simple work in another way. This time i would just exchange e-mails with the relevant person(s), that are responsible for the amiga-driver and maybe have 1 or 2 questions left regarding what you really need, to solve what is discussed in the thread.
To come back to the "silent approach": it is also interesting, that this statement is really true, i mean every dev that approached to me that way via PM and so on, was really kind and nice to me, but sadly you wont see them active in the forums and sadly the forums look often more like a war-zone. MAME enthusiasm can be very difficult sometimes .
