Summary MESS-specific 07659: vsmile [scoobydo]: Crash in Scooby Doo Funland Frenzy (USA)
Description Playing this on MAME I have found a persistent crash on the Coaster Caper Level when you get the first letter of the second word.
The other enemy sprite keeps moving but the game crashes and doesn't respond to any inputs.
Steps To Reproduce 1. Load up Mame and select V.Smile,
2. Select "Scooby Doo! - Funland Frenzy (USA)",
3. Select BIOS 103,
4. Select Learning Adventure,
5. Select Coaster Caper sub-game,
6. Play until usually the 1st letter of the second word is required then it usually crashes.
Additional Information vsmile_bug.inp attached by starting mame with:
mame64.exe -record vsmile_bug.inp

Sometimes graphical glitches appear such as the tiles for the track repeat all over the screen (top layer).

Sorry I didn't check earlier, your -record for whatever reason did not work, it comes back:
F:\OLDER_MAME>mame64_220 vsmile scoobydo -playback vsmile_bug.inp
Input file: vsmile_bug.inp
INP version 3.0
Created Sun May 17 15:17:59 2020

Recorded using MAME 0.220 (mame0220)
Input file is for machine '___empty', not for current machine 'vsmile'
V.Smile: Detected (XML) vsmile_rom
Total playback frames: 1
Average recorded speed: 100%

I tested and made a valid recording using this command-line and it created a valid one for me:
mame64 vsmile scoobydo -record scoobydoo.inp
It seemed to playback ok, with the following command:
mame64 vsmile scoobydo -playback scoobydoo.inp

I fear you'll need to make a working .inp
