MAME OS X - Can't find cheat menu

Postby kilion » Tue Jul 21, 2015 5:27 pm

Hi, I'm currently using MAME OS X version 0.135 and the XML Cheat Collection for MAME 0.163. I followed the instructions and downloaded the "cheat.zip" file into my MAME OS X directory: ${HOME}/Library/Application Support/MAME OS X. See the image link below.

I have also selected "Enable cheat" on the front-end. See the image link below.

However, I still don't see the cheat menu when I press Tab. See the image link below.

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

The version of MAME you are using (0.135) is far too old to use with the XML Cheat Collection for MAME 0.163, you should either get a new version of MAME or download the following cheat collection:-

XML Cheat Collection for MAME 0.136 (Release Date: 7th January 2010)
