Thanks for the response, redk9258!

We will be using properly licensed installation of WinXP, so that's fine. Replacing the mobo with same is not an option, considering the age of the hardware, the owner is not interested in paying for a 10+ year old mobo. I can't say I blame them.

So, you're saying the ROM's may or may not work with a newer version of MAME? Why would MAME not maintain backward compatibility with ROM's? I thought the whole idea was to play older games? (Not being sarcastic, I'm really asking).

So, let's say we upgrade MAME and ROM's and we stay below 0.107 in order to avoid the newer rendering system, would that help? Are we still opening the can o' wormies?
