Summary 07315: rchase2, gunblade, topskatr, srallyc, manxtt: Some model 2 games can't keep any change in test menu options after power down and restart
Description Some model 2 games can't keep any change in test menu options after power down and restart

The games:
rchase2, gunblade, topskatr (and clones), srallyc (and clones), manxtt (and clone)
cannot save any configuration inside the test menu.

I've tested all model2 games and I can confirm the rest are fine.
Steps To Reproduce Change any setting inside test menu (game region, coins per credit....), close the game, then open it again. Check changes were not saved.

Some of these do take the changes on the fly and work when you enter game without restarting (gunblade, topskatr for instance), none of them seemed to retain after a power down and restart where supposedly the adjusted settings would be saved.

They all take changes on the fly, but won't retain them after power down and starting again.
I've edited the title of the ticket to make this clearer.

I'm pretty sure I've successfully saved in manxtt back when I was fiddling with it, so this looks like a regression.

You're true, Kale. Thanks :)
I've done some testing and I can confirm regression is MAME 0.198

I loaded the settings created with MAME 0.209 in MAME 0.197 and it works, so I believe it's only reading that's currently broken.
