1) Is it possible to adjust the master volume somewhere in the options or configuration forever instead of each game individually everytime I start one? My 'mame.ini' has a 'volume' setting, which is set to '0'. I haven't tested it, but I assume you can set it to the desired value there ? Yes. Volu...

In MAME which is more accurate? Vsync or Triple Buffering? Also do they sync to the refresh
rate of the video mode used even if is lower than the
actual game's refresh rate?

Both mechanisms are incompatible with each other. You cannot create/load a save state and then record/playback an .inp based on that state.
