permanently enabling cheats in mame

Postby majorspawn » Fri Nov 01, 2013 2:12 am

Hi Guys,

is there a way to permanently enable cheats in a particular game in mame within the cheat xml.

For example:

kof95.xml

<cheat desc="Enable hidden characters"> <comment>Adds the extra two hidden characters to the selection screen</comment>
<script state="run">
<action>maincpu.pb@10E79A=01</action>
</script>
</cheat>

modify the above to always have the boss hack enabled as above?

thanks in advance

I think what you want is the ability to auto-start a cheat when MAME starts?

If so, to my knowledge, that functionality is not in the cheat engine (yet).

No indeed, auto-enabling of cheats hasn't existed in MAME for years and the facility is unlikely to be reappear any time soon.

I was wondering the same thing so thanks Pugsy for confirming that. I hope this gets another look soon
I will commit seppuku if Team Marubaku does not upload replay video footage of OutRun 2SP by the end of July!
