How do I use cheats with MESS, or is that not possible?

Should work the same as in current MAME - -cheat and give it an XML-format cheat file.

Are cheats enabled again within the current MAME version? They were disabled a loong time ago to a complete rewrite, as far as I know...

Yup, they're enabled again and working great using a much more extensible XML-based format.

MG - If you come up with a material set of cheats can you share them at some point? As far as I know there are no (current format) cheat files for MESS. Maybe a couple of examples would spur some energy and we could fine a common spot to store them.

The one on Pugsy's site is old format and there used to be a sfzch file somewhere in the CVS (yes the old one) that had some saved from when MAME booted that system.

I have not even played with the new cheat system. Is it one cheat file per system or one total for MESS?

Shimapong came up with a few XML codes for some PC Engine games.

I guess one xml for system, but I'm not sure how specific game cheats are defined in the xml. probably Shimapong's examples could help with this issue

also, unfortunately is quite hard to search cheats with the current implementation (no search interface is currently available and you have to use the debugger)

I've quickly updated the earlier TG16 MESS cheat file for MESS 0.129. Seems to work unfortunately there's still no crc32 handling in the new cheat engine for MESS. It ain't pretty though..
