Odd, I would have thought it would have worked exactly the same as normal MAME if hbmame.ini and mame.ini were identical.

But no

Using -plugin on the commandline works. Eg:-

Code: Select all

hbmame64.exe -plugin cheat,cheatfind asteroid

Ok found why it doesn't work, it overwrote plugin.ini - probably because I had to generate hbmame.ini with -cc.

So just open plugin.ini and make sure:-

Code: Select all

cheat                     1
cheatfind                 1
