Summary MESS-specific 06382: vic20: Internal UI: expansion slot omissions & crashes
Description slot devices/exp 8k option is missing. 3k and 16k are there and work as expected.
choosing 'exp' as an option for exp (to enable the 6 additional exp slots (see additional info) causes a crash.
Steps To Reproduce mame vic20

slot devices in tab menu: trying changing 'exp' field to 8k or 'exp' (for additional expansion slots)

note: using the command line for either of these (mame vic20 -exp 8k or mame vic20 -exp exp -exp:exp:slot1 8k) works as expected
Additional Information i do believe there is a problem here outside of the learning curve of getting memory configurations and software to work properly in vic20. for example, to get 24k working, not only do three 8k cartridges need to be added in the additional exp slot devices, but you also need to set the memory address for each cart in the dip switches menu!

Unsure precisely who fixed this, but 0.183 appears to be the fixed version as 8k is a select option for EXP once more.
