yeah, it started happening with the 68000 rewrite, unclear why as it's very random; sometimes you can play without any issue at all for hours, other times this happens.

I started the game and let it run in attract mode. Within seconds it went to a black screen.

I uploaded an nvram file I made a few months ago, it will consistently lock up right after booting.
mame pdriftj -nonvram_save

Without nvram (eg. remove nvram/pdrift or nvram/pdriftj), it will lock up during attract mode.

Reverted Y-Board games to the previous Musashi M68000, where TAS is not interruptible.

Validated with hap's NVRAM (which is indeed a 100% freeze with new68k) and running unthrottled in attract mode for several minutes.
