|Summary||06466: raycris: Soft resets during final boss fight|
|Description||During the final boss fight, the game freezes (BGM and sound effect still plays) and soft-resets back to Taito G-Net boot screen after few seconds. This occurs when the encroachment level is below 20% upon reaching stage 5 (Self Field), thus makes reaching the true final boss (and good ending, subsequently) impossible. This bug doesn't occurs when "normal" ending condition is met by having encroachment level above 20% upon reaching stage 5 however. Save state isn't attached due to large size (10 megs after compression), so I uploaded it elsewhere: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2d21xb8wkclxhzv/a.sta?dl=0|
|Steps To Reproduce||
1. Reach True Last Boss condition: get to stage 5 (Self Field) with Encroachment level below 20%
2. After several minute of normal final boss (Dis-Human) fight, the game freezes and soft-resets back to Taito G-Net screen. Usually occurs sometime when the boss is performing a double laser beam pattern for the second time as seen in the attachment
|Additional Information||It doesn't seem to be nvram-side issue, I've re-cleaned the nvram files and still getting the same result.|

|I'm able to confirm the reported behavior by using the supplied save state. It's really difficult to have the patience to play this game all the way through. Maybe someday...|

This bug happens also when facing the final boss in the alternate way, by letting the Encroachment level go up to 100%. To do that, just don't shoot any enemy. In a few minutes the counter will reach the maximum and the boss will attack you.
This way, I can confirm the soft reset after a brief fight with the boss, using the 32-bit build and Windows XP SP3.

I can confirm the issue is still happening and the encroachment level doesn't matter at all. Knowing this makes future testing much more encouraging, cause keeping the encroachment below 20% during the whole game is nearly impossible.
The game still crashes and resets when the final boss does his super laser shot seen in the attached image.
