Welcome!

Now in order to help you will need to let use know what kind of hardware you have (video card, cpu, ram), and what version of MAME you have.

Generally, slow down (or choppy sound or choppy video) is due to your computer not being fast enough to process the game and the emulator. So begins the trouble shooting process. :o ;)

what games are you trying to run. certain games when they were produced IE blitz, guantlet legends to name a few ran on very large processing units and mame is not able to run them properly but older games should run fine on even a P3 so let us know what ver. of mame you are running and the specs of youre pc and we will try our best.
