Cheats on Genesis Core issue.

Postby insanegunnerman » Fri Jan 24, 2020 2:30 am

Hello

When I apply any type of cheats on the Genesis core, the games crash and freeze. Does anyone know a way around this?

Thank you

Is it just with a specific game? I've found that some games work alright, sometimes the cheats do nothing, other times they crash the game. But this also happens with some software emulators, so I'm not sure what the deal is.

Sadly I don't have a link handy but I recall seeing a report of this in the Genesis core GitHub indicating that it happens only when the core is running without the SDRAM board, using the on-board DDR RAM instead. I believe a fix is merged but not yet included in a release.

I'm still awaiting the parts for my SDRAM board so I can confirm the same issue, but I can't confirm for sure that it works with the SDRAM board installed; I expect that's why others cannot reproduce, though.

I think it boils down to me running a naked board, I am confident when I get the SD Ram it will take care of the issue.

It's listed as a fix in the latest core updates, will test later.

I can confirm the cheats are working as intended with this new core.

Sorry, I spaced out updating this thread, also worked for me.
