Added an inp example file: delete NVRAM, playback it to end then close and reopen MAME.
Beginner course doesn't have 3'27" time at reopening.

This might be related to the unemulated status of the Model 1 I/O board, which contains, among other devices, a serial EEPROM. It's possible that the ranking scores are stored in NVRAM on the main board but get wiped when the program downloads the EEPROM data and finds that it's bad.
