The load time is dramatically improved in my development copy. expect it in the next release.
MameCE3 is based on Mame.36 final code. Prehaps you are using a ROM from an older (or newer beta) set. Try downloading a new rom. Also try some of the simple games like frogger and pacman for your tests. They run the best and should be easier to find.
The 548 must have a differnet CE id than the previous version. I'll look into it.
