0.221 XML Cheat Collection is OUT!

Post by Pugsy »

A massive update, along with the usual stuff there is now a load of SMS, NES and SNES cheats (and I do mean a load).

Thanks to gamehacking.org for supplying the raw NES & SNES cheats for me to convert.

Find the MAME 0.221 cheat collection here:-

There still seems to be a bunch of [mk2] cheats in the [mk] cheat file. Somebody pointed this out a couple years ago but they are still present.

So far, i had problems with Jackal and it's clones as well.
The cheats adresses now should be starting with "maincpu." and not "master."
This gives the error of unknown symbol making the cheats not available.

I've fixed them myself, you should fix them for the next cheats release.

Is this place dead now? No cheat.xml update for what's creeping towards two years, people have noted long-standing bugs in the xml, and spambots are taking over.

Also, here's another bug, this time with Tekken 2:
With the unlock all characters cheat (the oldest clones only, as Ver.C and Ver.D seemingly have everything unlocked by default), it's somehow enabling the purple-outfit Kazuya (the stage 9 CPU-only boss) which is not meant to be selectable in-game e.g. moving the cursor one position off-screen to the left should always land on Roger, not Kazuya (proper Kazuya is always right of Lei). This is technically a glitch character like Wild Card from Tekken 1. While the program code to select him from the select screen was obviously still in the game, it was never intended to be used and causes a minor glitch, explained below.

Boss Kazuya is not intended to be playable on the arcade version, unlike the PS1 version where the boss costume is mapped to the regular 0x00 Kazuya and chosen with the start button. Boss Kazuya has its own character slot (0x17) and if you complete the game with Boss Kazuya and get a time record (or a vs. game win streak), the part to enter your initials is displayed off-screen and the record and initials are not saved. Presumably, the game only has code to save records for the 23 selectable characters (0x00 through 0x16) and doesn't know what to do when you make a record with character number 24.

I've been busy/occupied with real life stuff unfortunately.

I was planning on a release before christmas but I lost interest due to a one sided discussion which made me question why I bother - so I didn't. I'm still considering what the best way forward is.

Spambots got through as I'd left the gmail.com unblocked (to allow valid users to register), hardly taken over though. However I've reblocked gmail.com so hopefully that will stop them - other countermeasures remain in place.

There's not that many long standing bugs, most of the issues are due to the fact that MAME is newer than 0.221 so the long standing issues have arisen since then. I'll possibly do a simple maintenance release at some stage just to bring it up to do date with regards any issues caused by MAME updates since 0.221.

ROM code for vsnes no longer works

Post by jman »

Since 0.242, ROM code for vsnes.cpp doesn't work because of driver update.

https://git.redump.net/mame/commit/?id= ... bc58d60d6f

1) region tag is changed from "maincpu" to "prg".
2) address is changed.

The following games are affected.

*btlecity
*starlstr
*cstlevna
*cluclu
*goonies
*iceclimb
*iceclimba
*nvs_machridera
*vsgradus
*jajamaru
*topgun
*supxevs
*wrecking
