Summary 05034: tshingen : video turns into GFX coruption garbage loop that never ends unless you quit or reset
Description Playing through this game on 0.147u1 X64 self compile I notice at random the emulation stops and you enter some "GFX garbage loop" that never ends. It happened too me on stage 1 and then another game on stage 5. The Reproducibility of this seems to be always 100% except you can't trigger it exactly when you want, you have to keep playing and eventually it randomly happens. When in this"GFX garbage loop"
state, MAME is completely functional as if nothing is wrong.
Steps To Reproduce load tshingen, play, and eventually you will get caught in what I call "GFX garbage loop"
unfortunately it might take 30 minutes or even 1 hour, but it will eventually happen.

tried it with mameui64 0.152 on a windows 7 x64 machine.never played the game before so i don't know if it worked with earlier versions,but after finishing the second stage,the game will crash,going back to what it seems its test mode(with all tiles scrolling diagonally),and the sound stuck on a loop,exactly as described here

tried again with the japanese version,and wasn't able to recreate the same seems to happen at random points,in random moments

It does indeed look like a rug test, it's possible the game is crashing, resetting itself then failing the test, which would explain why it doesn't end (some games will continue running the test until it passes.)

Similiar behaviour is in Ninja Kazan (which is not working game in fact).

Did an one hour play though the entire game and reached the end. I didn't encounter this behavior for 60 minutes from start to finish.
