Help with using new cheats on old mame

Postby senzerism » Thu Sep 11, 2014 6:32 pm

Hi -

Anyway I can use new cheats, for example the ones in the current XML for mortal kombat 2, in an old build of mame? I'm using Mame4Droid on my Ouya, and it runs the 0.139u romset.

Theres lots of options offered in the new cheat file than there is for the 0.139u one.

I've tried copying and pasting bits into the current file, replacing it with the new one, no luck!

Thanks.

Only thing I can suggest is to open up the latest mk2.xml in notepad and replace all occurrences of:

maincpu.m

with

user.m

The .m is important if you just replace maincpu with user1 then you will have a lot of non-working cheats

Thanks!

It worked after I replaced maincpu.m with user.m , and then replaced user with user1.

I appreciate the answer not being given to me on a plate - I will now convert the other MK XML's so they work in this iteration of mame!

thank you.
