1. Perhaps I did not make myself clear. I'm using MAME 64-bit version .173 on a Windows 7 x64 client. Using a custom resolution tool, I have MAME switch the resolution to that of the current game by setting switchres =1 in the ini (as one would). When I load up Puzzle and Action: Ichidant-R (World) [ichir.zip], and it switches to the wrong resolution. Having to manually switch to this resolution (which, I should mention, is nigh impossible in .173) is what I would consider a bug, since none of the game itself plays at that resolution. If it's a driver related issue, I can understand. But this has worked with every other game I've thrown at it.
2. If you are going to needlessly rant because you consider me to be a "idiot" and have a vendetta against something or someone on this forum, fine. But if it isn't a bug, tell me and give me a solution, don't just say "it isn't that way" and just walk off. It shows absolutely nothing in the way of an answer.
