I can confirm both of your reports, with both versions of mednafen
(0.9.39.2p1 and 0.9.46).
With a joypad plugged in, mednafen doesn't work. I see the same black
screen Jeremy reports. Without a joypad everything works as expected.
I've tried this a bunch of times, always with the same results. The
messages mednafen prints to the terminal don't differ at all except that
when the joypad is plugged in there is an additional line below
Joystick 0 - Game_Pad (0) - Unique ID: 110212cb8610005a
For what it's worth, I've tried both a Logitech F310 and a Logitech Dual
Action. No difference. Presence of a joypad seems to freeze mednafen.
This seems to be a new issue since I used mednafen and a joypad to
complete a game a few months ago...
I should also add that this testing was done on amd64, running OpenBSD
6.1-current (GENERIC.MP) #50: Tue Aug 8 08:41:21 MDT 2017, with Intel
HD Graphics 3000.
P.S. Perhaps the DESCR file could be updated to mention that the Sega
Saturn is also emulated by mednafen? This was introduced in 0.9.39.
Thanks for your work on maintaining this port!
