You are very much mistaken if you think that is the case here. Please refrain from making these kinds of assumptions when you don't know anything about the intentions of the person who is talking to you.
I merely stated that buying a new TV/monitor to put in my room (or anywhere else in here) is something I would like to avoid as much as possible because it's not practical.
If you only had two alternatives, which are carry a ton of physical books and all the library in form of ebooks, and then you were defending the latter method, for good reasons (such as the one I gave in this thread) you wouldn't be inflexible, would you?
I never said that my solution is the ideal one or that someone that suggested another way (or the only way, if you wish to put in those terms) is a fool.
I tried playing MK II for MAME just now and this time I didn't use these options:
G:\Jogos\Arcade\mame64.exe -video gdi -keyboardprovider dinput -keyboardprovider win32 -mouseprovider dinput
Instead I selected "opengl" for video. I could definitely notice a lag when Shang Tsung morphed into another character right before the round finished... It's very subtle but it's definitely there the latency issue.
So unless these options are somehow wrong, or I need more potent hardware, or MAME needs to be improved (compared to other emulators)... the use of Microsoft Remote Desktop has problems as you all mentioned before.
I tend to believe that it isn't 100% fault of this work-around, this idea of using the app.
There must be something that if improved or modified would allow these latency issues to be reduced even more. When you try to play this M.A.M.E. game you notice right away it isn't running at 100% speed.
And before you say this is the case for ALL other emulators and games, I can assure you it isn't, and if you don't take my word for it, just try them. The others I tried so far are running without any signs of latency issues at all.
M.A.M.E. is more cumbersome, that I am sure.
