It's generally encouraged to use the latest release version of MAME (0.236 at the time of this writing) when submitting bug reports here. That being said, your channel and cabs are really cool! I've run out of time today, but I'll give this a look with the latest release when I arrive home from work tomorrow if no-one beats me to it first.

You had the infinite ammo cheat enabled, so the game just kept counting your ammo and couldn't finish.

Any game that awards bonus points at the end of a round / level by counting remaining time or items will cause this issue if you have enabled a cheat to give you an infinite amount.

The way to bypass this issue is to bind a button on your cabinet to F6, and then when you clear the round, toggle the cheats off. This will allow the game to advance to the next level. Then as the next level begins, toggle the cheats back on. There is a small popup message when you press the button.

 This toggle function will not reset the cheats you have chosen at the beginning of the session, so you won't need to pause the game or open the TAB menu.
