Strongly suspect April 21, 2016 regression:

Not proven by bisect, but it falls within the 12 hours I have binaries for and seems to touch the right files.

Talking ot Ultimarc, they think it's a major bug and that I should report it.
Not sure if it's related, but here it is anyway.

It seems that since Mame 0.173, the -resolution setting has no effect. I'm using it with the -switchres option and it does indeed select the closest resolution of the rom, but it doesn't take into account the resolution I provide or force.

Ex: mame -v -r 352x256 -switchres dkong

In that case, it will switchres and selects 256x240 instead of 352x256.

I'm using an ArcadeVGA 3000 along with a MakVision monitor.

I revert back to Mame 0.172 and it works fine.

Current GIT may have fixed this. 0.174 comes out on Wednesday if you cannot get a binary beforehand to test.

I'm setup to compile mame. I'll do a git pull and compile. Will try report before official 0.174 is released.

Thank you Tafoid!
