Summary 06533: simpsons: Game crashes while playing
Description While trying to play the Simpsons game, it crashes which causes the game to leave full screen mode to a blank window.
The screen is in portrait mode instead of landscape mode, and the sound is stuck in a loop playing a sound.

Sometimes a dialog box with "Unable to reset, result 8876086C" is displayed.

See attached image
Steps To Reproduce Play the game and press buttons as fast as possible
Additional Information It can take some time for the game to crash, but with 0.184, it seems to happen almost right away. I haven't tried for awhile, but older versions it took awhile.

I would have to guess it your internal video card and the idea that you are flipping your screen with the hotkeys.
Intel, specifically, is known to have hotkeys which include the CTRL+ALT+ARROW KEYS.
Please ensure this is disabled in your video preferences and try again.
