|Summary||07669: citybomb: BAD rams after soft reset|
City Bomber works fine when you start it up like normal.
However, doing a soft reset after the Ram/Rom check and the grid screen will cause to have a delayed soft reset causing to put the screen white still going for a bit with sounds and then end up doing a soft reset causing to get BAD rams, the how many BAD rams you get its different depending of what you were doing, like if you were at the title screen or during gameplay.
While this is happening, the game will prevent to startup again, either close the game and re-launch it or do a Hard Reset.
Posted 2 pictures in 1, The Left one (1st) its what i got when i did the soft reset during gameplay and the Right one (2nd) its when i did another soft reset after the 1st BAD rams.
A similar thing happens with what i reported for Salamander: https://mametesters.org/view.php?id=7670
|Steps To Reproduce||
1. Launch the game.
2. Wait for the Ram/Rom check and Grid screen to Finish.
3. Soft Reset the game.
4. BAD Rams will happen preventing from starting up.

MAME does not zerofill/initialize everything at soft reset, in fact it would be wrong to do so with devices such as CPUs that have a reset pin.
IMO a bug happening after soft-reset when the pcb itself does not have a reset button is not a MAME bug unless it crashes MAME.
Solution here: press Shift+F3 to reboot the game.

Correct. Soft Resets are not guaranteed.
As per reporting rules @ https://mametesters.org/rules.html
Reset and Pause bugs are not bugs unless they crash (Noted by Aaron)
Therefore, closing report.
