Summary 01698: megaman2: [possible] If you insert a coin into the Parental Advisory screen the game title will disappear.
Description If you insert a coin into the Parental Advisory screen the game title will disappear. This happens only in Parental Advisory screen, before and after that not. I can repro this only into Mega Man: The Power Fighters (USA 960708) set, since that Asia and Japan sets has not the Parental Advisory screen.

Sincerely I don't know if it's an original bug or not.

This might be more than a possible bug... if compared to the other sets when a credit is entered, regardless - the title screen appears. In megaman2 set, the title is displayed for a frame AFTER start is pressed. I have a feeling it is supposed to show at the same time as the non-US sets. I'll leave possible for now, however.

hmm I have a feeling this will turn out to be like the neogeo 'bugs' when the US bios is used, you can break the first couple of 'giga' games in the same way. I strongly think it's just badly tested, rather than broken in MAME.

This also occurs in Power Battle (mmancp2u for CPS2 ver, megaman for CPS1 ver).
