|Summary||08311: specpls3 [rickdan2]: Rick Dangerous 2 gets stuck trying to display loading screen|
|Description||The screen starts loading but seems to get stuck halfway, constantly displaying garbage. Can't tell if it's also constantly reading too since this driver doesn't support floppy drive sounds.|
|Steps To Reproduce||Just load the specpls3 driver with rickdan2 from the softlist and press enter at the menu.|
|Affected Sets / Systems||specpls3 [rickdan2]|
