|Summary||08540: nes [btoads and clones]: Game crashes at the start of Level 3|
The game plays normally for the first two stages, but crashes to a black screen when you begin Stage 3. The normal background music plays but the game does not progress past that point.
I tested this with the US and European versions, and it also happens in a hacked Brazilian bootleg that I was testing for a friend. I have not tested this with the Japanese version.
I've attached zipped savestates for btoads and btoadsu made with the standard release build from mamedev just as stage 2 ends, before the cutscenes. This also happened in 0.250, so I'm not sure when it began.

|I tested the Japanese version and it hangs in the same place. I also tried btoadsu in 0.228 and it has the same issue. Furthermore, there's a bannister forums post from 2009 saying the game breaks on level 3. Maybe MAME's never made it farther than that.|

|It wouldn't be the first Rare developed game that makes MAME go nuts. See 06902 and 05825...|
