I finally found the issue that certain homebrew games (for example from Daniel Bienvenu) showed the title screen but won’t proceed. It was a problem with the pacedev framework and not with the core itself.
The updated core can be found here:

Great News !
Now not only most of the homebrew Games are running smoothly, nearly all commercial Roms are playable too !
The non-working commercial Roms can be started but are not playable because the Controller wont work. Maybe because it also supports the Super Controller or like Turbo the steering wheel ?
165 commercal Roms work. Those who are not playable are : Destructor, Illusions, MASH, Slither, Turbo and Victory.
96 Homebrew Games are working. Those who are not working are: Konami Ping Pong, Pac-Man Collection, Princess Quest and Track & Field. Pac-Man Collection is 128 Kb and Princess Quest is 256 Kb Big !
Princess Quest is commercialy sold and only aviable via Digital Download but plays in an Emulator.
Thanks alot for this great Update !
Great news and nice to hear. It’s always a question if its something with the core itself or with the pace framework I used. Latter one might be fixable by me. Sometimes it helps to ask the original author of the port to see where the error might be located: http://www.fpgaarcade.com/punbb/viewtopic.php?id=173 🙂
If I got some time I’ll test some of the games you’ve mentioned.
MASH and Track & Field are working. Looks like i had 2 bad dumps. Also found another Batch of Homebrew Games. Now a Total of 123 Homebrew and 167 commercial Games that work. 🙂
