RE: Lua problem - are you positive you've updated all files when updating MAME binary? If you use mismatched plugin files with current MAME, you do have a larger chance of issues/error showing.
The -nothrottle doesn't cancel any your forced vsync commands for MAME, so it sounds like MAME is already syncing and not allowing unthrottle. You could try the same thing but making sure you have all syncing commands OFF.
