R4 SDHC Cheats
« on: Friday September 12, 2008, 06:47:07 PM »
Hey everyone! I bought an R4 SDHC not long ago and noticed that the cheat descriptions are all in Chinese.  The really weird thing is the cheats work on English games no problem but I sometimes have trouble knowing which codes to put on.

My question is, is there any files or cheat.dat that I can get that is in English?  I tried the one for v1.18 but that doesn't work. 
Thanks

Oh by the way, the cheats I am talking about are the Action Replay codes.  Like I said, I pressed the Y button and BAM the game's cheats are all in Chinese.  There have been no updates for v1.21 R4 SDHC yet.  Not sure if anyone was able to find a way around it.

I found this on another forums, afterdawn.net (http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/505999). Let's hope it helps.

You need the latest R4 firmware, v 1.21:
http://linfoxdomain.com/nintendo/ds/dl.php/R4SDHC_v1.21_English.zip

Next you want the Code Manager from Datel:

US version:
http://us.codejunkies.com/nds_actionreplay/SetupUS1_05.exe

Euro version:
http://us.codejunkies.com/nds_actionreplay/SetupEU1_05.exe

Finally you want the R4 Cheat code editor:
http://www.r4ds.com/download-en.htm

or if the site is down, then get it here:
http://rapidshare.com/files/32954884/Cheat_code_editor.rar

Now it gets easy:

Update you MicroSD card with the new firmware
Install the Code Manager.
1. Under Subscriptions right click Codejunkies US Games and select copy if you want all or just do this for games you want.
2. Under My Codelists right click and select paste.
3. Let it import the games into your codelist.
4. Once it has completed go this folder:
C:\Program Files\Datel\Action Replay Code Manager\local_codelists

Find the XML, it should say something along the lines of customcodelist.xml

Open the Code Editor and go to file and press Import XML file.

Import the one you just made and then go to file and Save As cheat database. Save it as usrcheat.dat.

Now open the card again and navigate to the system folder. Copy the new usrcheat.dat file to that folder and you are done :)

NOTE: the original tutorial was for R4, not R4 SDHC, but I guess it works.

For cheat files, check http://cheats.gbatemp.net/, they have a large collection, just try them and see if it works. :)

Hope it helps.

YAHOOOO IT WORKS!!!!!! Thanks buddy! I saw the that post on afterdawn.net but I thought it was too messy..... Actually it's pretty easy.  Now my codes are ALL in English description but I haven't tried them out yet.  I assume that they would be just fine. 

I imported ALL the cheats from the US cheats from the action replay program. I even got newer ones like Final Fantasy IV. 

Thanks a bunch.  I hope this solves most of the R4 SDHC problems.  I know the other problem is the multimedia button not working but needed the _DS_MSHL.NDS file imported onto the SD card.

Good as an original!

I've just tried it and under subscriptions it says load failed. Whenever I try to add a subscription it always says error connecting to subscription source.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

I find it strange that a firmwire of R4 works on a R4SDHC

I have a R4 SDHC 4GB and the normal kernel of R4 will not work on my R4

the newest R4SDHC is kernel 1.26 which has moonshell 2.00 stable with it

you can find kernel 1.26 here:  http://www.r4sdhc.com/download-en.htm

Ok i've also been trying to get this to work Ive got a SD HC card im trying to update the cheat codes on. Ive downloaded the latest version 1.21 and when i load it up all 3 boxes "GAME  Multimedia and Boot Slot 2" are invisible with just the highlighted marker around them. Ive downloaded a premade Cheat.dat and replaced it with the one that comes in the new version but either one still will not bring up the "Y" to enter cheats on. Do you have to do all the new subscribing to action replay and saving the new file to usrcheat for it to even work?

No i don't think so by reading your post

it depends on what r4 you have

I had a R4 SDHC with firmwire 1.26 from r4sdhc.com now
(my Ds has been stolen so I'd had to order a new one also a new R4)

I have a r4 SDHC upgrade which means i have a new firmwire from:www.r4rts.cn

I think you need the cheat.dat file  and when you start your DS  and you can't see you
3 boxes "GAME  Multimedia and Boot Slot 2" I think you have the wrong firmwire
for your r4 you must look on you r4 package which site it says to find your firmwire

if you can't find it i shall name a few sites :

http://www.r4rts.cn (this is the site for my new R4) -----> this version uses usrcheat.dat
http://www.r4sdhc.com -------> this version uses cheat.dat


An other common problem with R4 is not showing its cheats you can solve that by removing
cheats that you don't use and start with the (J) cheats and most of the time when you shrunk your cheatdatabase it will show its cheats

The difference between cheat.dat and USRcheat.dat is that
USRcheat.dat is not encrypted and cheat.dat is.

Real R4 must have encryption and Acekard does not because it uses the USRcheat.dat
and that one is not encrypted
