Could you please post an inp about this issue? This game ranks pretty high in my list of frustrating games and I don't want to learn to play it ;-)

This bug is still in version 131u4, but although the game does not officially support the savestates I created one using an earlier version of mame that the game does work and when I use this savestate in 131u4 the game works perfectly (never reappears the black screen).
can i upload the savestate or he include info with copyright?

On dying at stage 4 it jumps to
20002500: add.l D5, INVALID 31
Which is already invalid on a plain m68k, apparently something corrupts the stack.
Maybe a vram encryption issue?

or just an original game bug, since it apparently requires you to reach stage 4 on 1 life, it might have slipped by testing.

so far nobody has been able to acomplish that on a PCB to tell me if it happens there

also there could be undumped revisions, if this recent Gaelco work has shown anything it's that there are a lot more revisions of the games out there than we had.

Bug aren't not a bug?
Or probably little problems with the protection?
