how do i add descriptions to the cheats in the cheat manager?

also, the export feature in the cheat manager does not work. is that because i don't have descriptions for the cheats i've entered? (the cheats work though).

There is currently no facility for adding descriptions in the GUI (you can of course edit the XML by hand and add them).

To fix export, change line 473 of cheats.cpp from

if (cheats.NumCodes() == 0)


if (cheatlist.size() == 0)

I'm a bit alarmed that nobody reported that until now - if nobody's gonna actually use the cheat manager I'm not gonna bother with it :P

you prolly know this already, but just for the record, i'm using release h from an obs repo: nestopia-1.40rh-2.1.

i hope you will keep it though! if you don't want to develop it further, then hopefully, for the next release, you will apply the fix above and leave the cheat manager at that. considering that thought, perhaps you could make a "Release I" now with this fix?

i also noticed that the surround option in the audio tab doesn't stick between sessions of nestopia. is that on purpose or perhaps a bug?
