It's not clear what you are asking?

If you are REALLY using 0.103u2 you will need to download the cheat.dat version.

If you have 0.130u2 or above get the XML version...

0.103u2 is really old and does not use the XML version. You need the .dat version as he said, but you should really update. I believe 0.103 still used a slightly different format which wasn't compatible with a later version of the dat format. Maybe changed at 0.123?

Anyways. Various versions here

1) Download appropriate cheat version. Looks like something changed in 0.106, so maybe stick to 0.105 for your 0.103 needs.
2) Extract dat file to MAME directory.
3) Enable cheats either in MAME GUI or with command line option: -cheat
4) Play game with cheats.

Or you could just update and upgrade your ROMs which is always a possibility. Unless you've got the entire Neo Geo collection that you're trying to maintain as playable, it's really not that hard to keep things running. Actually, they'll run anyways. The GUI will just say they're incomplete. rbff1.zip is playable with only 6 files (not including the BIOS).

MAME Plus and every other derivative uses the same cheat file as MAME if that's what you're talking about. If for some reason you want a copy of the program that old you're screwed. Time to update.

I really don't understand what your problem is. The MAME 0.105 cheat file should work fine with MAME 0.103u2...whether it works with MAME32 is another issue though (did work for MarioMania so I suppose the issue is more at your end). MAME32 hasn't got a good reputation with the cheat engine...though it 50:50 to what's the 'cause' :wink:

I wish you luck with finding old binaries of MAME32/UI if that's your problem, as they drop off the internet rather rapidly.


You have done the following things?:

1. Goto the Options Menu, and select "Default Options". Go to the Miscellaneous tab and check the box that says "Enable Game Cheats".

2. Unzip the cheat.dat and place the cheat.dat file in the same directory as MAME32.exe (not just drop it onto your desktop).

Eg These should exist if your mame dir is c:\mame\ :-
c:\mame\mame32.exe
c:\mame\cheat.dat

3. Press TAB ingame....you should have a cheat menu.

Yeah... well let me make it real clear for you.i put the the damn cheat(the file is named just cheat not cheat.dat) in the mame folder where the mame32.exe is, i run mame and i try to go to the cheats and the guy tells me no cheat.dat is located and i should put one in the in the folder.at the same time i lose my pacience and tell the f##k thing to go "unzip" itself.the f##k will not recognize the cheat.dat file no matter what.do i have to put it somewhere else or rename the son of a bitch or what?im getting a little sick and tired of fishing for cheats for mame pugsy...
