0.199 XML Cheat Collection is OUT!

Postby Pugsy » Sun Jul 08, 2018 12:38 am

Up-to-date for MAME 0.199

Currently I can't update the webpage so for now so you can only grab it from the link in my signature.

Still work todo on it, but I haven't time to update everything before the next MAME release - which is a predicament I've had for the last few MAME releases. Best get something out the door.

I've spent a lot of time updating my cheat collection build tools (the XMLs/JSONs are built from multiple databases every release) which will make my life easier in the future.

Google translate:
This update repairs the code of some game cheat codes in the new version does not display the problem, sorts out some cheat codes, removes the unnecessary cheat codes of neogeo games, all classified into neogeo and neocd folders, all seemingly The file is getting smaller. Because there are too many games, you can't test them one by one. If you have different or no cheat codes this time.
Please send it to everyone to share, thank you
Gai Shi and San 3 borrowed and extracted the big cheating code of Yanshi visitors (PS: Regarding West 2, the Chinese version of the cheat code is too complicated and unstable, resulting in failure or instability in the game, so this time there is no Update) If you have please provide

It is a translation of an old version of the cheat collection along with cheats taken from Wayder's collection.

It is riddled with errors because all the work needed (and believe me there is a lot) between MAME versions has simply not been done:-

There are hundreds of orphaned XMLs for shortnames that simply no longer exist in MAME 0.200 (eg. 3wonderu, 9ballsh2 and many many more)
There are numerous shortname changes where addresses/cheats have changed but they've not been picked up. (eg airduel + too many others to list)
Various changes have been made due to changes in MAME like data/addresses starting in 0B being handled differently which required changes to the XMLs and they have not been done. (eg 4in1, 99lstwar, aburner)
Lots of new cheats/bugfixes have not been added (eg 1941, 1942 etc).

If you can read and understand this text then don't use it!

Thanks, the samsho2 xml problem has been fixed - there was a misplaced space "temp 2" rather than "temp2".

I commented it out due the follow up post :-
viewtopic.php?t=12463
Seems that to finish on top of the podium you have to actually finish first by using the last lap cheat, I could replicate and I was going to investigate but things got away from me.
