Summary MESS-specific 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.

Pernod mentioned that it used to boot, and looks like a regression in the floppy code in the most recent release?

This doesn't happen in release 0.243, so it is something after that causing it.
Specifically, work done on May 5, 2022 seems to have made this regress:
https://github.com/mamedev/mame/commit/c1f32bb9cf555198deff4fd06824a8e31a88fcd6
https://github.com/mamedev/mame/pull/9670

Please be sure to only report issues here that are tested with the release versions only.

I have not tested
https://github.com/mamedev/mame/pull/9750
Which is a follow up and has not been committed to master yet.

This PR must help to mask issue back (as it was originally before #9670).
