There's some analysis out there, maybe by GStrain, about MAME only being able to register a certain number of button presses per frame, and it makes T&F, and Hyper Sports harder. As for the hammer throw, thank god it's not just me. I can never get the f'ing thing to work on MAME worth a damn. The response time just doesn't seem to be there. Archery on HS seems to be just off, too. On a cab, I can get the apples every time. Not on MAME. If you're having issues, imagine how the rest of us feel
T&F on MAME? I messed with the idea since I got mame set up for the Oi-Lympics. But so far it's been nothing but frustration. I long jump WAY after the jump line. I foul on the Javelin. I have no clue on the timing on Hammer throw, other than hitting the throw button sometime yesterday for a throw today.
