I am getting that error as well, and the final boss is corrupted when it shows on the screen. However for some reason when I take a snapshot that reduction enable message doesn't show on the picture.

Uploaded a picture of the corrupted graphics on the boss where the message occurs. It's actually the 5'th boss it occurs at.

I've added some screenshots I took of where it happens, just get that far in the game and it'll be there the whole boss fight, along with nasty graphics corruption which isn't part of this report (It's flagged GAME_IMPERFECT_GRAPHICS, I'm only contacting MAMEDEV like it asks.)

Messages enabled in stvvdp2.c are for spotting weird video behaviours for when the video part gets a rewrite. "Reduction Enable" in particular doesn't make any sense (about what it should do etc.), for example in Asuka 120% it's enabled on gameplay but you can't really spot out for what ... this one apparently seems a legit graphical bug, but now I'm curious to know what it's supposed to show on real HW.
