Shut Cheats OFF, game should work fine.
It appears to be an XML cheat issue and not MAME
Closing. If this changes, we will reopen.

To follow up. Please check for outdated, cheat folders or any alternate cheat files. Even in your root folder.. anywhere in your MAME folder.
There was a bug that was fixed which this bug is being accepted and should now show the proper message about :

== mk3.xml(5): error parsing cheat expression "temp0" (invalid memory name)

But it still is unclear how these alternate cheat package are getting read.
I you have the latest cheat.package in a fresh folder - MAME will not crash.
