What's strange is that numerous MAME versions ago, I played Strider 2 from the beginning to end without it crashing. So I was surprised when I tried playing it yesterday and it started to crash after a few minutes. Very weird.
I don't know if it should officially be marked as NOT WORKING though. That seems a little harsh & drastic, especially since it's such a popular game and doesn't necessarily always crash (according to B2K).
