    I am running retropie on an RPi2 (installed via the IMG file). I’d like to add cheats to AdvMAME but have yet to figure out how to do it. I’ve been searching for two weeks now but for some reason just can’t find someone with a correct solution. If someone could point me in the correct direction it would be greatly appreciated.



    What I am meaning by “how do I use cheats” is where do I put the cheat file, what format does it need to be in and what cfg file do I need to edit to make advmame point to the cheats.



    1) start in the advancemame directory
    cd ~/.advance
    2) download the cheat file
    wget http://cheat.retrogames.com/download/cheat126.zip
    3) extract it
    unzip cheat126.zip
    4) edit your the rc file (either advmame-0.94.0.rc or advmame-1-2.rc)
    nano advmame-0.94.0.rc
    5) find where it says misc_cheat, and enable the option
    misc_cheat yes
    6) while in an advancemame game, press tab to bring up the cheat menu which is now available.



    WOW, synack you did an excellent job with the help. It worked great. I can’t believe it was that simple after searching for so long. Thanks!!!
