Play with speed-up cheat

Post by ansollena » Wed Sep 05, 2018 7:49 am

How can I play with the speed-up cheat of a game, using Wolfmame?

With MAME i can activate cheats, to play for instance "Jr. Pac-Man [with speedup cheat]" .... but with Wolfmame is possible? Or in this case i can record with normale MAME ?

With Wolfmame you can still use any cheat, or save/load savestates...unless you're recording an .inp.....

You cannot play with speedup cheat. We know there were games on location with the speedup chip in them (so ms pacman was perma fast), but as far as I know, no currently accepted mame version for MARP will play those roms. :(

There do exist clone ROM sets for Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, and Jr. Pac-Man with the speedup chip (puckmanf, pacmanf, mspacmnf, and jrpacmanf).

What do you mean by "counting for LB"?

The only way to play these tracks which do not have a clone version of the original ROM,
is to have the original ROM with cheat enabled equals to fast (2x or turbo).
