Summary MESS-specific 06529: spec128 (strider): Finishing Stage 2, the computer resets into the main menu
Description After reaching the top section of the level, the level stage clear message appears and then the computer reboots. This bring me memories with my amstrad cpc when there was a read error from the cassete :)

Tested in ZxSpin emu, the game doesn't hang. The tzx image used is Strider (1989)(US Gold - Capcom)(128k) from, couldn't find another tzx or dsk image since the distribution of the game is denied.

Attached a save state finishing the second stage.

Steps To Reproduce 1-Launch spec128 at 0.184 with the tzx image
2-highlight TAPE LOADER and press intro
3-TAB, TAPE CONTROL, Press play and wait the game to load.
4-Load the savestate using F7 and then the M key (Don't forget to enable the keyboard emulation)
5-When the state is loaded, sometimes a white border appears instead the black one (This may bring us to a crash, so you can kill yourself, and load the state again at the title screen with the black border).
6-Walk to the right pressing p and wait until the game crashes.
Additional Information Get the tzx image from
