It depends on your setup but for most people yeah you're right. For my needs compiling it as needed works since I don't usually update my MAME version much at all. SF2HF is one of my all time favorite games if not the number one. So I'll take the time to do the editing and compiling.
With that said do you happen to know what the correct CPU clock should be? I saw a few posts here and on mametesters that it's supposed to be 74% slower. So would the clock be set at 8.8799Mhz?
