I was hoping you all could point me in the right direction as far as underpowered hardware or just a setting issue, or other with my setup.
It has been a few years since I built a cab (last was around mame 0.6), but anyway I just threw together a setup with a old PC that runs a core 2 duo 2.2, 2gb ram, integrated video, fresh clean Win 7 64 install. Loaded up latest MameUI and it seemed to be running poorly. I didn't too much settings configuration besides testing direct3d on and It seemed like their may be a issue. I was using my main test / benchmark game as Mortal Kombat 1 as that is around the level of game I was hoping to have playable (and all the older games), and it was nearly playable at times, and at other times it would stutter and stall.
Now it is a clean Windows install so it is not something like AV or malware software interfering, so really what I wanted to ask/confirm is if this hardware is plenty for that specific game (Mortal Kombat 1) so I know if my issue is setting related, or possibly bad hardware for troubleshooting. So should a Intel C2D with 2gb of RAM be more then enough for a game like MK1 or is it normal for that game to have issues on this hardware due to being underpowered?
