@VorticonAs you seem to be using Linux, you should consider pulling the latest version via git and building it from sources. Unlike many other OSS projects, this is really simple and only requires you to run the same build command every time that you update your local source copy.

Thanks! I used your instructions to build the latest version.

At one point I had to upgrade a hd image because of change in mess (yea that many years ago).

 

If there anything I should do with my old images to verify they are on an ok version to work with MAME?

The CHD files should be version 5. You can verify this with the MAME tool chdman (chdman info -i yourhdfile.hd) or with TIImageTool (select "Convert CHD format"; the dialog window tells you the current version).

@mizapf the Geneve and Apple IIgs both have built in clocks and both keep lousy time by gain minutes per second (in the MAME emulation). But, I haven't notice anyone else complain about this. I wondering if maybe it's something I'm doing but I can't think what would be? both set at just 100% speed with auto as frame skip.

I'm not aware of such a timing problem either. What happens if you set the skip to 0 (not auto), i.e. what does it say when you terminate the emulation? Still 100%?

set skip to 0, and it now works on the Geneve even when I set back to auto. guess just a glitch. apple still screwed up though, must be just that emulation. since both were doing it I thought I found a pattern, but not.
