Re: Where is the debugger?

Ok forget it, apparently I had to enable it per game and not in the global settings. NOPE ! You can affect all games by changing the line debug 0 to debug 1 in your mame.ini ... http://upstephh.free.fr/bonzel.gif Steph from The Ultimate Patchers http://upstephh.free.fr/bonzer.gif

Re: MESS : What kind of cheats to add ?

And according to the code in MAME 0.141u2, the cheat engine is able to load multiple cheat files if there are multiple devices (eg multiple MegaTech cartridges) ... this is something absolutely necessary in MESS, because e.g. for pc engine you need to use the -cart name for HuCard games, but the -c...

Re: MESS : What kind of cheats to add ?

So quick question. Will this eventually mean that I can eventually have one XML cheat file that applies to more than one Sega Genesis game without it applying to all of them? I don't really like the CRC system, and having one colossal file to work with becomes daunting rather quickly. It will be th...

"Infinite Credits" cheats for NEOGEO games

I've had a quick look at the new 0.141 XML cheat files, and I haven't noticed any "Infinite Credits" in them :( While the task isn't that difficult, it might take time because of the numerous games and because of the numerous BIOS (IIRC, the US ones have 2 coins counters) ... Anyway, what ...

Re: [outzone*] "Select Starting Level" cheat

I'm sure they must be a reason why stephh was looking in terms of a ROM cheat as he used the RAM address in his cheat.... Perhaps he's just improving his 68000 skills ;) Well ... I know I need to improve my M68000 "skills", but as you'll notice in MAME 0.139u2 whatsnew.txt, I've worked on...

Re: [outzone*] "Select Starting Level" cheat

My first thought was that a massive amount of code for a select starting level cheat. Had a quick look and I can see why you used so much code, changing the poke for this game is excessive - it's easier to change the first peek to a poke. I would not include a Skip ROM check cheat with the cheat ei...

[pachifev] "Basic" cheats

I don't know why I decided to have a look at this game to fix the Dip Switches : I don't like such game, and the CPU (TMS9995), besides the fact that it was unknown to me until this Wednesday, is a nightmare with its internal RAM you can't read/write within the debugger (ie: no watchpoints nor memor...

[cyclshtg+] "Infinite Lives" cheat

With wrong and/or unmapped Dip Switches, you couldn't notice that the game had lives ... However, since the game is heavily based on "nycaptor', I thought than someone would have found this cheat earlier ... Copy/paste this in cyclshtg.xml and bronx.xml : <cheat desc="Infinite Lives">...

I'm surprised that you didn't have a look at the notes in the cshooter.c driver Thanks, I rarely/never look at the driver source for reference when looking for cheats, as past experience has shown they are of little use and I guess they only ever have reference to simple stuff which can be found in...
