----------------------- COMMANDLINE AUTO LAUNCH -----------------------


example of the text in a .cut file to automatically launch from xbmc or evox

----------------------- THROTTLE -----------------------


Throttle disabling is useful for games running at 57fps, 59fps, 58fps(cave), 61fps (namco).

Enter the ingame menu, "remap gamepad", and map one or several keys as THROTTLE.

(You can map your THROTTLE as back+X+B )



Example: If you think Dodonpachi (58 fps) isn't that smooth,

call the THROTTLE function by pressing the keys remapped. THROTTLE will be disabled

(because enabled by default)

This will force the game to run at 60 fps (60/58 fps): a small speedup but a smoother animation.


Throttle can also be used for 55 fps games (Midnight Resistance...) but the sound can glitch a bit (speedup).

Some older 61 fps Namco games are smooth with THROTTLE disabled and Frameskip 0 (Rolling thunder 1,2...)


If you want to know what the original framerate is for the games, press BACK+BLACK (default setting)


----------------------- CPU OVERCLOCK -----------------------


This can be very useful for some games with slowdowns.

To call the function press BACK+RIGHT THUMB, (the sound volume setting appears)

Go up or down a few times and check the CPU0, CPU1... overclock settings.


Examples (for 480p)

-BioMechanical toys has small slowdowns, Set the CPU0 to 125% = smooth animation.

-Double Dragon (original beat'em up) runs slowly: set the CPU0 and CPU1 to 150% = nice speed.


Don't overclock the games that can't reach their original framerate (ex: 52/60 fps, 36/57 fps), the emu will be slower.

Overclock only the games running at full framerate ! Biomechanical toys runs at 60/60 fps and

Double Dragon runs at 57/57 fps, so the values for CPU can have a higher setting.


We can also decrease the values:

-To get a better anim in Darius Gaiden (or some other Taito), keep CPU0 at 100%, and set the CPU1 (sound CPU) to 50%.


----------------------- CONFIGS -----------------------


A member wanted a config for CPS2 games (some Capcom games use LPunch+MPunch+HPunch, same for Kicks)

If for example LPunch=LTrigger, MPunch=X, HPunch=Y and you want a shortcut for furies on WHITE BUTTON

then "remap the game" this way:

P1 Button 1 = J1_LTrigger or J1_White

P1 Button 2 = J1_X or J1_White

P1 Button 3 = J1_Y or J1_White


Pressing White will call the 3 Punch Buttons !


----------------------- FAST FORWARD -----------------------


Sometimes it's boring to wait for a long time when a game is launched: memory tests, rom/ram tests, etc...

I personally use a fast forward function: just change the frameskip ingame.

My default Frameskip is AUTO.

I have remapped Frameskip Dec as L_Trigger R_Trigger X (FS decrease: Auto - 11 - 10 - 9 ... 3 - 2 - 1 - 0 - Auto ...)

and Frameskip Inc as L_Trigger R_trigger Y (FS increase: Auto - 0 - 1 - 2 - 3 ... 9 - 10 - 11 - Auto ...)


When a game is just launched I Press LTrigger+RTrigger+X to run the game very fast (Frameskip 11).

To return to Frameskip Auto (normal speed) when the arcade tests are finished I Press LTrigger+RTrigger+Y.

This way I don't wait for the long rom/ram tests.


(Just press the keys one time, or you can get lost as the Frameskip value isn't shown anymore ingame).


----------------------- SERVICE MODES -----------------------


Some players like to have a Freeplay (no coin) or an easy setting for the games, but no DIP switches ?

All the games have a service mode NEOGEO, CPS1, CPS2, SEGA, MIDWAY, CAVE, NAMCO.

Remapping function in "Remap This Game" will help.


NEOGEO: Just remap the TEST SWITCH with the keys you want, and press thoses keys ingame: entering service mode.


CPS1 & CPS2: Just remap the SERVICE MODE for the same results.


SEGA 32: (outrunner, Golden Axe2, Arabian Fight, Spiderman...)

Remap the SERVICE MODE and the SERVICE 1: SERVICE MODE will enter the settings and valid a choice

SERVICE 1 will allow to switch between the different options.


MIDWAY: Remap the TEST (or use the option: ingame menu/game settings/Test Switch ON/OFF).


NAMCO: Remap the SERVICE MODE (or use the option similar to Midway's).


CAVE: (Esprade, DoDonpachi) Remap the SERVICE MODE and press the keys during 2 or 3 seconds.


Be careful ! Sometimes with some manufacturers you must reset the game (LTrigger+RTrigger+BACK) after you pressed

the service keys to be able to enter the arcade settings ! ! !


PS: it's unfortunate but set the biggest schumps to EASY to get less bullets on screen and limit the slowdowns


----------------------- GUN GAMES -----------------------


Playing a lightgun game like Lethal Enforcers 2 with the pad can be hard because we must reload by shooting outside

the screen. For this kind of games, enter the cheat menu and available the unlimited ammo setting.


Same for Underfire. The crosshair isn't shown ingame but it's playable with unlimited ammo

as we can see where we've just shot.


Disable the Crosshair (BACK+LEFT+THUMB) will help in Beast Busters.


----------------------- MULTI SCREENS GAMES (Darius 1, Darius 2, The Ninjawarriors, Warrior Blade) -----------------------


Disable the Widescreen setting for horizontal Games, and the games will play at fullscreen. 16/9 users will get

the best results.

Purists can also set a special "screensize adjustment" to get a suitable aspect ratio.


----------------------- HIDDEN IN E:/TDATA/bedbabe1/SYSTEM/MAMEoX.ini -----------------------


Alot of stuff is hidden in this file. Be warned enter with care.

LockoutStartMenu = 0 (if you enable this the Start button will no longer work, this will lock everything to the user)

LockoutAdvancedOptions = 0 (if you enable this you will have access to the start menu and basic settings but cant enable advanced settings)
