Does this exist for mame?  Also, are there any cheats to fix the position of the camera?

I found the address for the debug dipswitches (they both use 10EC00/10EC01), but I wasn't able to view the hitboxes in LB1.  The camera mods don't prevent zooming out, and the players will always be onscreen when you mod the camera's X position.

N., you Mame cheat god.  Thank you! 

Yeah, I think I saw some old videos where they actually used dipswitches to activate the hitboxes.  If anyone can enlighten me on that, I'd appreciate it.

Edit:  I just saw you included hitbox viewers for LB2.  That should work as I doubt they changed between 1 and 2.  Juzoh plays better in 2 anyway.

From TCRF:

Debug Dips (AES)
The home console version of the Neo Geo has two pairs of eight DIPs each, which are called Debug Dip-switches. Unlike the software DIPs, they often have debug-related options, like job meters, invincibility, and sprite and sound tests, among other things.

These are disabled by default, and there is no way to modify them other than modding the console to use a special BIOS to make them available, like the Debug BIOS and Universe BIOS. Some emulators, like Kawaks, have options to enable these Debug DIPs.

Forgot to mention this:
Here's an easy way to find them using Kawaks:
- Pause the emulator, press Numlock on your keyboard
- Go to Game/NeoGeo Settings.../Debug dipswitches, click All ON.  Click Ok
- Press * on your Numpad.  You should get 2 results.

I am confused by this.  I got the two results when following your instructions.  Is there another step after that to access the character test?  I'm not well versed on this.  I tried it on on Last Blade 2.

??  The explanation's for if someone wants to find the addresses for the dipswitches to make a MAME cheat because they're not working in Kawaks (they didn't work for me, or I'd have just told you to use Kawaks to view the hitboxes).

I don't know if you can access the character test using the dipswitches, assuming there is one.
