Summary 02642: myfairld: Black screen in Virtual Mahjong 2 MFL
Description When you correctly set the game to 1P, and exit the setup, you get a black screen immediately after the begginning game selected screen. And it stays that way. If the game is set to 2P like it is by default, the game correctly does what it usually does (restarting the stv logo sequence).

Note from Source:
- myfairld: Apparently this game gives a black screen (either test mode and in-game mode),but let it wait for about 10 seconds and the game will load everything.This is because of a hellishly slow m68k sub-routine located at 54c2. Likely to not be a bug but an in-game design issue.

You should wait a little longer (unless you activated the MULTI-cart mode),it is known that myfairld loads a lot because there's a slow m68k program routine at start-up / transitions .It is *not* known if it is or not a bug of the original game,so it should be tagged as is...

Adapting this as a Source Bug transfer. In the source file (stv.c), it states this for the game:

- myfairld: Apparently this game gives a black screen (either test mode and in-game mode),but let it wait for about
 10 seconds and the game will load everything.This is because of a hellishly slow m68k sub-routine located at 54c2.
 Likely to not be a bug but an in-game design issue.

In my experience it's more like 30-40 seconds, but it's a definite delay before you can get to the title screen.

I stopped it at 20 seconds. I thought the game freezed up.

To be honest, I thought it was freezing too until I spoke with Kale and discovered the Source entry referring to the game. It's ok, though, this driver has not had it's source noted bugs transferred yet. It's a slow and ponderous project the Fujix is pretty much doing alone lately.

This looks fixed now, i.e. it accesses the menus at bearable speeds (not more than 1/2 secs).

Reopened because it randomly happens as for 0.188 (still requires like 10 seconds from time to time)
