Description superdodgeballer 2017-08-12 01:49:24 MSD
Description of problem:

while using cheats in mame, with the extra package installed, it crash while launching the game. It wasn't the case in Rosa 8, or if you activate cheat option without the cheat.zip installed. There was probably a problem in the .zip file, the xml for Garou looks damaged. 
Official cheat file is a .7z, doesn't seem to work in Linux. So I really need this bugfix.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.145

How reproducible: simply launch garou parent rom (garou.zip) in mame with cheats activated, cheats installed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install package sdlmame
2.install sdlmame-extra-data
3.install garou.zip rom and neogeo.zip rom (I own original Neogeo, so i'm not illégal) in home/.sdlmame/roms
4.launch by inputting this command : sdlmame garou -cheat
5.normally he will complain about :

~ $ sdlmame garou -cheat
MAME exception: garou.xml(17): error parsing cheat expression "temp0 =maincpu.mw@027F9C" (invalid memory name)
