I'm getting an error pre-game with baseline mame run via command prompt; I get a seemingly different error message, post-game, with baseline run via MAMEPGUI.
Anyways, checked hardware acceleration in Windows and on my card, and they're at max, or apparently so, respectively.
Consider it high comedy....sincere tragedy....whatever...don't take it personally.
