Help with accessing Service Mode in MAME

Recommended Posts

I know that to enter service mode in MAME, you press F2 followed by F3.  Well, when I pressed F2 and then F3, nothing happens.  Was the reset button moved to a different F key?  Any info would be appreciated.

Not sure where you got F3 from... unless that is game specific thing. F2 is the default Service mode key though.

You can press "TAB" from within mame to see what buttons are mapped to what keys.

When I pressed F2, nothing happens.  I tried holding it down, tapping it twice.  It's driving me crazy, because I know that when I had MAME on my main PC, I could easily access it.  What button do I press after F2 to enter service mode?

Just tested a couple. Holding down f2 then tapping f3 brought up test mode on 1942.

However Aero Fighters 2 and Altered Beast came up fine just tapping f2... f3 will actually restart the rom on these ones.

Seems different games will be different. Which one are you trying? Maybe I can figure it out with you.

Some games I've tried out are Capcom CPS Dash games like Cadillacs and Dinosaurs and The Punisher, and CPS-II games like Alien Vs. Predator and Armored Warriors, and also some Konami games like Vendetta and G.I. Joe

Never mind, the problem was that F2 wouldn't respond on the keyboard I got for it, so I tried the keyboard from my main pc and it worked like a charm.
