Hi,

I think these are the settings you are looking for ?

On the commandline, or in your mame.ini, enable hlsl (hlsl_enable), use video d3d, and set 'phosphor_life' to something (for example, '-phosphor_life 0.6500000,0.6500000,0.6500000'), so you would for example have a commandline looking somewhat like this :

mame.exe galgame -hlsl_enable -phosphor_life 0.6500000,0.6500000,0.6500000 -video d3d

Please note that this will result in 'ghosting', which you may or may not find more pleasant than the flickering.

Did you know how to do it in MAMEUI without command line?

AFAIK there is no way to adjust these outside of pulling up the TAB menu while running a game and adjusting the Slider Controls.

You need to enable 'hlsl' before the 'phosphor persistence' (blue, green, red) options become available in the MAME internal menu. (Also, you need to have d3d video enabled [the default on Windows as far as I know] because hlsl only works with d3d and not with opengl/etc.). I don't know how to enable hlsl in MAMEUI; I can't find an MAMEUI interface option to enable hlsl. Perhaps someone else can tell you.
