mame pacman -nothrottle -str 30 -video d3d ->141.85% ->90.00%

2 runs each on my new (lowest end... 1050 video card) "gaming" laptop. Curious on the speed drop on the second d3d and bgfx runs, but a speed bump on the 2nd opengl. And... the HUGE difference. Why would the latest video technology throw-up at d3d, and excel at opengl? my settings must be whacked...
While I'm at it... how do I fix the fact that after every run, I get:
plugins/data_story.lua:4: attempt to call a null value (method 'get_char_width')
Edit: disabled plugins for now. Got rid of the above warning. 99% d3d on pacman is still curious though
I will be the last person to die in my lifetime.
