|almost certainly unhappy with the MCU hookup (they're highly sensitive to timing at the very least)|

yeah, the MCUs are meant to cause a bunch of values to be in RAM, the games check these are various points and misbehave if they're not correct.
I imagine a timing error is causing them to be written at the incorrect time and erased, or something like that (or the dump is bad and it writes the wrong value)
