Have you installed the Saturn power cable and flipped the switch to External power?

A firmware update for MODE was just released, so you might wanna try updating to it to see if it fixes your issue.

You have to power cycle as by default the Saturn reset simply resets the game.

There is an optional mod that can be done to wire a connection from the reset switch to MODE to change this behavior. It will be in the upcoming advanced install manual.

There is also a good chance that once the cheat engine is implemented that a soft reset can be put in...that is probably further out.
