this is based on the Mame build in the emulator your using, to make things more compatible, the best thing to do is use only thr roms from that build of mame, so example, if the build is say 0.1.135 on your dreamcast emulator, well only roms that would be completely compatible would be the rom set of 0.1.135 , you get me?  also you have to content with the possibly of romset being out of date of time of being produced in the rom set, meaning the rom may not of worked correct back then, but was fixed in a newer romset, so the advice I can give id to hunt down the romset build matching the Mame build on the dreamcast emulator, i know this sound complex , but it's not I promise.

All the best.

Thanks Greyfox, I got all that, I have managed to get a working Double Dragon Going but it only emulates at the right speed with music off, so it looks like they stopped making Mames for the DC before they got something as new as DD optimized for the system.
