Cheats working XBOX MAME with some alterations apparently.

Postby Pugsy » Thu Jun 27, 2002 11:22 pm

I've had unconfirmed reports that MAME-X Beta 4 is cheat capable with some minor hex editing. Thanks to a person on IRC here's how you alter the binary xbe file after you've compiled it.

Take the default.xbe open it in a hex editor find "cheat.dat" and replace it with "d:\ct.dat" and resave the default.xbe file.

Copy the cheat.dat file to the root alongside default.xbe, rename cheat.dat to ct.dat.

Open mame.ini in a text editor, and change

Code: Select all

"cheat                   0"
to

Code: Select all

"cheat                   1"


Burn to disc using your normal method.

Can somebody please confirm this works, I haven't got a chipped xbox so I can't test it... Though I have to say if the fix is that easy it would be a 2 second job to update the source and recompile surely? But great news nonetheless if it's true?

Maybe this will work just as well without altering the xbe

MAME-X is supposed to be a standard compile and uses a standard MAME.ini. If this is true this will probably work just as well without need to rename the cheat.dat file or hex edit the deault.xbe file. Please try and report which method works for you:-

In the mame.ini change

Code: Select all

#cheat_file              cheat.dat


to

Code: Select all

#cheat_file              d:\cheat.dat


AND


Code: Select all

cheat                   0


to

Code: Select all

cheat                   1


Save the altered ini file and burn.

Shouldn't that be:

Code: Select all

cheat_file              d:\cheat.dat

Yes, I now even have 2 modded xboxes. I did try the various xbox mames a few years ago and the cheat file did work fine. Unfortunately the XBOX is not upto playing a lot of the mame games and I missed the keyboard too much so it was a shortlived experiment.
