time crisis Helicopter bug/cheat

Postby angry_mona » Tue Nov 15, 2016 11:44 am

Hi all.

I have a colleague that got for the office a Time Crisis with the gun and everything!, this got me super excited as it brought me back so many child memories and now trying to do again my record there, but getting stuck on the helicopter with the bug that can be hit only on a special part of the tail, and is getting very frustrating and also ruining my record times :)

I want to see if there's anything that can be done to improve that cheat to leave it always enabled, don't know much or why is nasty, or why is better to turn it off if not in use.

--------------------------
<cheat desc="Hit Helicopters Anywhere"> <comment>Note, this cheat is quick and nasty and may have side effects so turn it off when not in use</comment>
<script state="on">
<action>temp0 =maincpu.md@00C396</action>
</script>
<script state="run">
<action>maincpu.md@00C396=60000594</action>
</script>
<script state="off">
<action>maincpu.md@00C396=temp0 </action>
</script>
</cheat>
--------------------------

If the nastiness of the cheat is because if modified that space in memory of the rom the whole time, would it be possible to disassemble the ROM, make that change and assemble it again? As we don't have a keyboard and mouse connected to the machine all the time is a bit tricky to pause, enable the cheat, kill the heli, pause, disable the cheat.

Thanks for any help, I'm happy if I'm directed to some docs to read and try to help on fixing this :)

I made that cheat several years back.....I think the "Note, this cheat is quick and nasty and may have side effects so turn it off when not in use" statement is a get out on my behalf. I made the cheat but I didn't check to see if it had any side effects in the rest of the game - it's quite possible that it has no effect on the rest of the game so could quite possibly be left on without any side effects.

Here's my original post:-

As you can see I had a cold so didn't fully test them...

Greetings Pugsy,
I want to use cheats for the MameUI64 and seemingly unable to.The first cheat i want to use is for Time Crisis "Hit Helicopter Anywhere" I downloaded the latest cheat table from the website and followed the instructions by googling https://www.wikihow.com/Add-Cheats-to-MAME. I used the cmd line and added the mame -cc but the cmd is not accepting the syntax and hence the .ini file does not get generated.

I would like to know if there is an another way to get the cheats working? Is there anything i could have missed out/overlooked and would like to know as such.Probably some mistakes in the cmd line? My path for MameUI64 in Win7 64 bit would be:

E:/GAMES 2/mameui64/

Help will be much appreciated.

Thanks!

I don't personally use mameui, but you can try this from inside mameui

Options>Default System Options select Miscellaneous Tab and make sure "Enable Cheats" is ticked

and then

Options>Directories and make sure Cheats is set to cheat

then just make sure that you have
