Just trust me on this one - don't expect it to work fast enough to be considered even mildly playable. I remember Techmaster enabling one of the simplest MC68K games - Marble Madness - and it was too slow on the iPaq. Same story goes for Out Run as it uses two MC68000 / 12 MHz. Pocket PCs are just not fast enough to achieve the good speed of MC68K emulation using MAME code.
