Summary MESS-specific 07558: snes, snespal: Various Enix games freeze and have broken sound
Description Here's a list of related Enix games that display similar behavior. I think most of these were working recently except actrais2 and maybe starocn. actrais2 breaks sooner at least. I'll list both for completeness.

actraisr and clones: garbled/no sound, freezes on black screen when choosing "fight monsters" to enter level. The one exception is actraisrj still works.

actrais2 and clones: freezes on black screen after Enix logo in Jpn/USA versions. Euro version plays demo then freezes.

illtime and clones: no sound, freezes on black screen after pressing start at title. Spa version freezes one screen later after selecting save file. Jpn version makes it past this but has no/garbled sound and will freeze upon entering or leaving the portal (save room) one screen north of starting room.

robotrek/slapstic: freezes on black screen after Enix logo.

soulblzr and clones: Jpn/Euro versions have garbled sound, others no sound. Jpn/USA freeze on black screen after pressing start at title. PAL versions freeze when you return to 1st hub room after getting sword in 2nd room.

starocn: freezes on black screen after company logos.

terranig and clones: no sound, freezes on black screen after second scene (planet surface) of demo story. (sometimes?) freezes when starting new game after initial "Chapter 1" screen.

All part of my local regression list for the driver, but never logged here.
If you want working games, you need to roll back to 0.213

I have uploaded a patch as an example of how to fix this issue just in case someone wants to test it.

It implements a minimal cycle acurate (only 7 opcodes) for spc700 cpu but that is enough to fix all games reported here.
