Rush 2049 strange freeze in attract mode

First of all, Thank you Ted Green for making Rush 2049(and Special Edition) playable on MAME 0.206 but I found a strange issue with Attract mode, When this screen comes up for the second time after Showing Track 3 in Attract mode, the game freezes, I'm not sure what's going on but All I know is that this issue happens, Haven't tried Special Edition though so I'm unsure if it has this issue, but hey I can still play the game at least as it does not freeze while playing, It only freezes in attract mode. Here's the screen I'm talking about.

*UPDATE* I just tried Special Edition and it doesn't have this strange freeze.

I'm not sure why it's freezing in attract mode(regular Rush 2049) so for now, I'm playing Rush 2049 Special Edition.

*UPDATE* A friend of mine is also experiencing this issue with regular Rush 2049(sf2049) as well.

Re: Rush 2049 strange freeze in attract mode

For what it's worth, I can reproduce this issue on my setup. The game does indeed appear to freeze the second time the title screen appears in attract mode. The question is whether this happened on the real hardware as well (so it's a bug in the game and not in mame), or whether this only happens in mame and not on the real hardware (which makes it a bug in mame).

Whichever it turns out to be, you may want to sign up for an account on mametesters [1] and report a bug for it.

I took a look and could reproduce the issue. There seems to be something with the IDE (hard drive) emulation that is causing the hang.
