Summary 04107: All sets in aristmk4.c: Unable to write save state
Description Upon attempting to save any game's state in this driver, you are given the following message, and an empty [gamename] folder in ./sta

Error: Unable to write save state due to a disk write error. Verify there is enough disk space.

Doesn't affect any other driver I have tested, including 86lions.c and aristmk5.c. This bug possible coincides with the games being promoted to working status, for example, save states work for 'eforest' in 0.133u2.

Save States are not guaranteed if it has not been tested by the driver authors and been given the GAME_SUPPORT_SAVE flag. None of the three drivers are set up for saving, so it's not surprising nor it it a reportable bug if it doesn't work.

The only exception to unable to write is if MAME crashes when attempting to save - which it doesn't seem to do here.

to be fair, this sounds like a bit of an odd case... it shouldn't be giving that message even if states aren't supported.

array should be allocated before being saved properly...
