Good catch. This was a stupid bug on my part, fixed for 0.96a.
-Virtua Racing had more correct graphics in 0.95 (i.e. pavement; pit crew)- in 0.96 they're back to the "car is sitting still on blue sky" stuff.
I'm not going to worry about this until the driver becomes playable.
-Pac-Mania is a wee bit faster in 0.96, which is good. Same with Puzzle Bobble 4. But Primal Rage and Power Drift feel slower.
I benchmarked Primal Rage in MacMAME 0.96 using both the CW and gcc builds. The CW build is roughly ~10fps faster than the gcc build for 0.96. However, my benchmarks show that the CW build is roughly identical in speed to the gcc 0.95 build, so the slowdown is probably not Mac-related.
