Some games run in perfect speed and after of some seconds run in less of 25 % of speed even if not other programs using the computer cpu.
If two times press TAB the speed return to normal.
Perhaps an problem with the same root of issue posted ?

FWIW, I can't reproduce this on Linux/x64 with SDLMAME. I'm also unable to reproduce the bug marked as related to this one (06276)

Yeah, I've seen this several times during development, usually when alt-tabbing away from the 'machine information' page.

The error has changed, it now says

Unable to create the Direct3D device (8876086C)
Unable to initialize Direct3D 9
Fatal error: Unable to complete window creation


The alt-tab problem was fixed on 2016-10-22, but by release of 0.179 (just 6 days later) it was broken again, with the above message. (tested with official mame 32-bit from the mamedev site)
