Thanks for the quick answers to my last question.

In the rules it says that the games should run at MINIMUM 90% of their full speed. Is that with no frameskipping? or is it allowed to use autoframeskipping?


I got an old PC (AMD K6-2 400).

You can have frameskip 11 if that's your desire - if it gets you over
90 % - then it's good. Careful, however, some games do NOT like
frameskip adjustments... GB9

yep, it's ok but it can be a pain to play with high frameskipping,
there's always the alternative to play with no sound, this speeds
games up considerably to make the autoframeskipping not so skippy.
also beware, as game guru said, some games require no frameskiping at
all (that's frameskiping of 0) to playback and be accepted at marp,
you can usually tell this in the rules of a game or the description
of some of the games recordings.

Also, I believe there's an exception currently in place for Taito F3
games on lower-end systems (which will do fskip 11 at about 88% every
so often), but don't quote me on this - I've been known to be wrong
