Reset bugs are special. We normally do not even acknowledge or take them unless it crashes MAME.

I have not seen any indication the board itself has a dedicated reset button. That isn't to say this might not be something that can be 'fixed' (At one time, the game appeared to reset without hanging). A board without reset-ability simply used power down/up (in the emulation case, needing to stop/start MAME or use SHIFT+F3 for a HARD RESET), which should do basically the same function of a power cycling.

|It's working OK for me even after a game over with high score.|

|I think the rule about not acknowledging reset bugs ought to be relaxed somewhat. Sure, soft-resetting certain systems when they least expect it can cause egregious glitches on actual hardware (Pokemon Yellow speedruns being a notorious example), but in most older arcade games soft reset glitches tend to be emulation bugs, and are often caused by mismanaging interrupt state or not resetting bank switches.|
