Sounds like there maybe an issue with one or more of the cheats that are being loaded via the plugins menu.

Which game are you running when you get these errors?

No.... but whit some users i have found a solution.....

Also here i have open an issue on mamedev github:
https://github.com/mamedev/mame/issues/ ... -570923905

I need to say.... i'm not use the files picked from your fantastic site but, to learn how it worked, i have search and found all cheat myself using the command included in internal debugger.
When you found the corrent memory address from command "cheatlist <file>" the debugger write the result on a file .xml.

The result using this strings:

Code: Select all

  CUT CUT
      <action>:maincpu.ppb@C121=FF</action>
CUT CUT
  
I have look the cheat206.7z.... in all file .xml the carachters ":" it's not present......... infact i have edited all my xml files and remove the ":" and right now the "cheat" lua plugins can load all my xml cheat whitout any problems.

If you look on github..... currently the main files of cheat plugins as obtain a commit apparently resolved this issue :)


*EDIT*
always to learn.... i'm really interested right now how it's works the cheatfind plugins but i can't found any documentation of any help on internet...... can you help to found somethings ?
