Summary 08008: esb: Game tends to soft reset during gameplay
Description The game tends to soft reset to the title screen during gameplay (usually after the first or second loop but sometimes as soon as you start the game). I'm thinking it has something to do with the Slapstic Protection Chip used for the game (Unlike the original Star Wars arcade game from 1983).

The game soft resets at 2:59.
Steps To Reproduce Insert coin and play until it soft resets to the title screen (usually after the first or second loop but sometimes as soon as you start the game)

Isn't this what fixes? If so this should be fixed in upcoming 0.233.

Correct. This should be fixed. Please test a Git Action binary of that commit or wait for 0.233.
Thanks for reporting. I was meaning to log this as it was known earlier.
