Crash on exit Software List game or picking Select New Machine

Tue Jun 06, 2017 11:47 pm

With MAME 0.186 on Windows 10, is anyone else having an issue where it crashes when hitting escape or picking Select New Machine when in a Software List game? I can exit fine from any arcade game, but when exiting from a software list game it says "Initializing" for about 30 seconds, before it finally times out and crashes.

If you can give some specific procedures of causing crash with actual software lists examples, I'd like to try to duplicate. Be as detailed as possible.

Sure, no problem. When I have MAME running I go into Nintendo and pick any ROM (for example, 10 Yard Fight), the game starts, but when I hit escape, it crashes (or when I pick Select New Machine). Attached is a video that shows what happens, hope it helps...

It looks like it only crashes if you have launched NES from your favorites menu and it appears to have regressed when softlists were the default choice for all systems which had them as an option. I'll see that a MAMETESTERS bug is made for this. For now, if you run it through the normal menu, it should return fine.

Thanks for the followup.

Looks like you're right, the crash only happens when using Favorites! Just FYI, one tweak to your last post... it doesn't just happen in Nintendo, it happens in other emulators too (I've tried it in Genesis and Super Nintendo). Thanks for submitting the bug!
