What to do with the cheat.dat file file :-

Step 1 (what to do with the cheat.dat file )
============================================

First of all unzip the cheat.dat file into the same directory as where the
MAME.EXE is (All platforms apart from Mac OS 9/X ).

For MacMAME the cheat.dat file should be in:-
~/Documents/MacMAME User Data/Misc Support Files
in order for cheats to work (where ~ is the path to your home folder).


Step 2 (Enable the MAME Cheat Engine)
=====================================

As standard the MAME Cheat Engine is turned OFF, there are several ways of
turning it ON depending on which platform you are running MAME on.

MAMEW: This is the standard MAME command line compile, go to your MAME
directory open up the MAME.INI file with a text editor (the one you
are using to read this will probably do!).
Find '### Mame CORE misc options ###' and change 'cheat 0' to
'cheat 1'. Note: If your MAME.EXE is named something else like
MAME067.EXE then you will need to edit MAME067.INI rather than
MAME.INI!
If you have no INI file then just start MAME from the command-line
with the -createconfig option eg. 'MAME -createconfig'. If you
manually use MAME every time from the command-line you can also
just add '-cheat' to the command line.

MAME32: This is the MAME with build in frontend compile for Windows. Go to
the Options Menu, and select "Default Options". Go to the
Miscellaneous tab and check the box that says "Enable Game Cheats".

DMAME: This is the DOS MAME compile, go to your MAME directory open up the
MAME.CFG file with a text editor (the one you are using to read this
will probably do!).
Find 'cheat off' and change it to 'cheat on'. Note: If your
MAME.EXE is named something else like MAME067.EXE then you will need
to edit MAME067.CFG rather than MAME.CFG! If you have no CFG file
then just start MAME from the command-line with the -createconfig
option eg. 'MAME -createconfig'. If you manually use MAME every time
from the command-line you can also just add '-cheat' to the
command-line.

UNIX: For the UNIX/LINUX compiles just follow the instructions for DMAME
the DOS compile.

OS9/X: From the front-end, go to the Misc tab, and check the box that says
"Allow Cheats".


Step 3 (Cheat!)
===============

In-game press TAB and follow your nose......
Left and Right cursor toggles cheats ON and OFF, ENTER turns on one shot cheats
and SHIFT ENTER displays the cheat comments if there are any (the ON/OFF/SET
will be in reverse video if there are any comments).

Nice. The cheat file is very useful, and its reallly nice to be able to play as bosses with only a quick switch on.
