MAME 0.106 cheat file released

Postby Pugsy » Sun May 14, 2006 6:42 pm

Only a month since the last update. Main thing with this update is that all the cheats have been converted into the new cheat format so there's no support for MAME versions older than 0.60 (it's time you updated anyway!).

Old code still remains on 0.106 database.

1) "commented out" code ("semi-colon + filename" instead of normal "colon + filename"). Do you remain old format in this case ?

A lot of cinemat.c games and...

Code: Select all

;athena:0:FD16:01:000:Invincibility PL1
;athena:0:FD7A:01:000:Invincibility PL2

;battlan2:0:654C:00:100:Bypass the End Level Door Bug:This will bypass the bug with the driver in post 0.76 MAMEs where you can't complete the levels as the Missiles pass straight through the End Doors rather than blowing holes in them. This is a quick fix, but it's NOT a permeanent solution.

;warpwarp:0:81C0:01:000:Invincibility

;warpwarr:0:81C0:01:000:Invincibility

2) non-"commented out" type.

Code: Select all

:mp_sonic:0:FEF760:0C:000:Always Have Speed Up Item


But still, the size of the file is over 13M... And at last the text editor I used have screamed and caused Windows crash due to insufficient memory. It's very tight for my poor PC.

Yes, the commented out cheats I knew about. Seemed to be a waste of time converting them and they stand out more. I may delete them completely from the next cheat file. mp_sonic I noticed about 30 mins ago and I've converted it into the new cheat format, don't know why that was missed out...bizarre!

Strewth, I never even though about memory issues when editing the file. How much memory has your PC got? Perhaps you need a better editing program..perhaps a text editor like ultraedit/textedit/jedit may help?

Please don't worry, it just happened by an unhappy coincidence. Currently it works without problem. I'm using Japanese text editor on Windows Me (512 MB) but I think many background applications at that moment are partly because of memory problem.

There was a cheat in a game that hadn't been found before (in the last cheat.dat) so I wanted to 'Watch' it -or- all the addresses to see which ones they were and how they behaved. :-? edit: That cheat IS now in the new cheat.dat.

I went into Edit/Add a Cheat, even Enable/Disable Cheat; I pressed 'W' but nothing appeared in the left/top side of the screen.

Was this taken out or is there another way to Watch?
As always, your patients is appreciated. :cool:

"W"atch key works fine on the latest MAME + cheat database in my PC.

W won't work on ROM cheats if it's a RAM cheat it should work (as long as you haven't changed the key config in MAME). If it's a ROM cheat you can enter the addresses manually into the watchlist but the displayed values will be constant - ROM cheats change the program code so it won't help you understand how a ROM cheat works for that you will need to use the debugger or just read the cheat comments.

Does that open a way to kill old-style cheat compatibility come v107? Makes you wonder...
