Editing ArcadeOX MAME/MESS config file

This is probably a question for Kong more than anyone else.

I want to make the following changes to the config file used by ArcadeOX's version of MAME/MESS.

Code:
# WINDOWS PERFORMANCE OPTIONS
multithreading 0 -> 1

# WINDOWS VIDEO OPTIONS
prescale                  1 -> 4

# FULL SCREEN OPTIONS
triplebuffer              0 -> 1
Turning on multithreading increases performance of the game.
Switching prescale from 1 to 4 increases the crispness of the games.
Triplebuffer prevents screen tear on fullscreen mode.

This does not affect the gameplay in any way, it is just for increased performance and better look when I play. See comparison shot below. Left is default settings, right is with settings as posted above. Screenshot from MAME on my computer.

Re: Editing ArcadeOX MAME/MESS config file

Are you asking for permission to submit scores after doing that or instructions on how to?

For permission, yes that is fine. There are no settings you can change that would help you cheat or disqualify your score. The only concern would be if it caused your FPS to drop below 90%.

Re: Editing ArcadeOX MAME/MESS config file

I already know how to do it, I was asking for permission.

I just wanted to make sure it wouldn't set off any cheat alarms in the system when I submit scores.

But anyways thank you, now I can really enjoy these games without the blurriness =).
