Hi,

I'm experiencing a strange problem with MAME32 (default options), Win98,
DX8, TNT2 (latest Vantra drivers from nVIDIA).

After PC startup, the first rom loaded plays OK, but when I quit and start
another one - the video is all screwy (like it's out of sync or something
similar), I have to restart to get things back to normal.

Any help here is much appreciated as it's very frustrating.

Thanks
Justin

I would assume a broken graphic card driver which does not switch back to
the previous mode.

Did it happen before? Did you upgrade anything?

No built the machine up from scratch. Thanks for the advice - I'll look
around for some other drivers.
