0.152 XML Cheat Collection is OUT!

Postby Pugsy » Fri Jan 03, 2014 5:21 pm

Up-to-date again, still got lots of clones that still need checking/duplicating but I don't want that to hold up the release any more.

Pugsy, is there a Changelog available for people to see which games got updated? The closest thing I found to that is the Cheat.txt file's "SECTION 9 - Games utilising ROM cheats with credits", but it doesn't show when (the version) the games' cheats were added.

No there's no changelog, did a trial years ago and it there was simply too much work involved so its not gonna happen.

Most new cheats are posted in the mame cheats forum anyway, most silent stuff is tidying up and adding of cheats for clones.

thanks, it's out with a lot additions :)
i tested some of them, including mine and others, i found some issues.. Pugsy, can you correct these below? i will add more if i run into other issues.

[ddux] and clones

in cheat0152: (select starting stage - i added this)
<action condition="(maincpu.pb@FFD431 == 00) AND (maincpu.pb@FFD6A7 == B4)">maincpu.pb@FFD431=(param-1)</action>
when it's set to 2-3-4 etc, while demogame is running, gfx get corrupted. correct one is

<action condition="(maincpu.pb@FFF6E2 == 11) AND (maincpu.pb@FFD431 == 00)">maincpu.pb@FFD431=(param-1)</action>
(this do not harm demogame)

[aof2] and its clone
in cheat0152: (Desperation Move (Both Players) - i added this)
its comment is wrong, should be like this:
<comment>Desperation moves are always available for all players, including CPU player in 1UP game!</comment>
(perform desperation moves .... part should be removed because those moves vary for all players, not static)

[mk2] and its clones
in cheat0152: (Select Perm Fatality Type) : i tested and stage fatality has bugs, do not trigger 100% (auto movement) so i offer a change as i found 100% in umk3-mk3
<action condition="param==01 OR param==03">maincpu.mw@00428D2=1002</action>
fully working & better cheat is
<action condition="param==01 OR param==03">maincpu.mw@00428D4=09E4</action>

result:
FFA146A0 ORI 2,A4 becomes MOVI 2,A4 and instead of patching an index above, it triggers everytime.. tested. (uses same code which i found in mk3-umk3)

Thanks got the changes, I'm still pondering whether to do a version2 of cheat0152 as a slightly more serious issue has come to light.

For some reason 64 bit MAME has developed an issue with commas inside <action></action> statements, for some games like invaders it has ZERO problems for others like czmon_9a it crashes occasionally at start up, yet others like mslug which hardly use any commas at all it crashes every time on startup 9with unhelpful error messages). Converting the cheats into separate <action> statements corrects the problem, however the issue is not with the cheat collection as 32 bit MAME has no problems with any of them.

I've currently fixed about 400 cheats in about 200 games, but with the unreliability of the fact that some of the games don't crash every time it'll be impossible to know if I caught them all and the ones I've got left to do are an absolute swine (eg ssf2xjd - which crashes very occasionally on 64 bit).

Fixing the mame source is probably the answer.

In mean time not using commas in <action> statements is probably the answer - I've never been a fan and I've only used them occasionally for example in the invaders clones as there would be far too many XML lines otherwise (but they all still work).

Looked at IGS's The Gladiator, and no change.

<mamecheat version="1">

<cheat desc=" "/>
<cheat desc="There are no cheats for this game as it didn't work"/>
<cheat desc="the last time it was tested. If the game now works"/>
<cheat desc="please request cheats for it on the cheat forums."/>

</mamecheat>

Thanks, I'll change the message in the next release to reason 7 as it now works:-

Code: Select all

There are no cheats for this game as it's proving
to be a bit of a stinker to find cheats for it.
Standard RAM cheat finding is unlikely to have any
success as there maybe no RAM setup or it's banked
too often, so ROM cheats may be required. If you
find any please post them on the cheat forums.


Happy?

I know I could very well be running late (presses already running?), so I'd just like to apologize in advance before I go on.

In Jan Jan Paradise 2 [jjparad2], the address on the last (fourth) line for both of the winning hand cheats is wrong. This has probably been going on for some time, and has evaded attention. Just change both instances of 6001C60 on said line to 6001C80 instead, and that should fix it.

Thanks for all the hard work.

Thanks, nice spot!

I don't know what has happened in the gorf driver there - the RAM location for lives is still good but the value is not getting poked (it was in earlier versions).

I've just replaced it with a ROM Infinite Lives cheat that will be in the next update.

The codes for [pokechmp] match with [billlist]. Tested fine and working.

Same applies for [ddpdojblka] with [ddpdojblk].
