The game simply doesn't work correctly. A big red screen should tell you this when you start MAME.

Are the emulation messages when you start MAME not clear or is there a way we could improve the message so that it can be understood that the game is in a state which isn't playable to the end of the game (much less to the end of a level)?

If there were a regression in function (used to work and not crash the emulation/emulator), there might be something to report here. Otherwise, the fact that it is flagged NOT WORKING covers this machine's need to be reported.

But there is a many other crash reports about a Model 2 games, and many of that reported problems are resolved already, despite the fact that almost all these games are "red".

It's ok to report crashes, even if it is flagged as not working.

Given that, I played for half an hour and it didn't crash.

What "files" you chosen during a play? "File №2" and "File №3" can be completed fully without a problems - but the only place where game is stumbling is specified in description.

I can't seem to reproduce this crash after playing through the jewel store section in stage 1 multiple times. Have you considered clearning the nvram yet?
