Most of the Hyperstone games including Elfin, only got 3-5% faster. Jump Jump has improved the most out of all the games I tested, going from 77-79% to 92-94%. I was using D3D in the MAME I am comparing to, and am now using GDI because D3D has been discontinued. That might explain why most games only got a slight speed increase.
