MAME _does_ "take a guess" as explained in the thread already - moving from a cardinal direction to a diagonal is interpreted as wanting to move to the next cardinal direction if you followed the circular path further.

If you move the stick from the neutral position straight into a diagonal, MAME previously chose horizontal or vertical randomly. It now chooses one deterministically, but I forgot which it was hap chose.
