What features? Most people either leave the games with plain stretched pixels or use HLSL for the aged, blurry, worn out CRT look, both of which worked perfectly well even before the new requirements.

Better put, older video cards simply don't support the video modes that MAME inexplicably changed which made it incompatible with just about every video chipset made prior to the Windows 8 era yet the changes and video card feature requirements were of little to no use to most devs or users anyway. If a certain driver hadn't magically started booting games in 0.180 which happened to coincide with the video changes, I would have given up on MAME entirely and stuck with 0.179 forever.

MAME, no longer filling people's hard drives with impunity, but filling junkyards with desktop PCs which can no longer run MAME properly!
