« on: Saturday April 17, 2010, 03:38:21 AM »
I guess the title says it all... where do I put the file, which it download (usrcheat.dat or cheat.dat) etc..

Any help would be great thanks!

In the _rpg file is a file named cheat and like every other r4 its probably usrcheat.dat if you got a old usrcheat.dat from you're previous firmware then try to add that to the cheat folder

You need the usrcheat.dat in the cheats folder. Push Y on the desired highlighted ROM, and then X. Also make sure that the Cheat In Game(AR) option is on within the Patches tab of the Settings (via Start).

should a menu pop up asking which cheats you want enabled?

When you turn on the DS, press Y for settings, X for cheats. Activate the ones you want, generate a .cc, then at the settings menu, press Y again. You should see some changeable settings. Press R and you should see something like "Cheats in Game". Change it so it says ON or Global[on]. It does not really matter which one you choose.

You should switch from 1.18 to Wood R4. 1.18 has problems with large cheat files.

Find a program called the cheat code editor it lets you manually add cheats at will with action replay codes. This also works for hacks like a weapon mod, which is my favourite cheat.

What do you mean you made a usrcheat? Do you use Wood R4? Are you sure you got the correct cheats for the game? (cheat codes change depending on the region)

No, you don't. Other kernels however may not let you see the cheats if the file size exceeds a certain amount.

@Flip_01,

Are you using WOOD R4 on your cart? What's your cart's name?

If you are using WOOD R4, then make sure to do these;
1. make sure the game ID of your rom (decrypted id) is added into the cheat database
2. insert the usrcheat.dat into the cheat folder found in _rpg folder
3. run wood.nds, go to start, and then activate the cheat, before running the game

If you are not using WOOD R4, you need to create your own topic thread. Cause then it means this is not the right place to post your issue. This topic is for WOOD R4 as the subject implied.

But just an overview about the possibilities;
1. some carts don't use urscheat.dat, there are other kind of database such as cheat.dat,
2. like Serhat mentioned, some carts has a limit to how many cheats are in the database for it to read,
3. you'll need to make sure to place the cheat database in the correct folder/location
4. make sure you don't have more than 1 database kept in various folders, it might confuse the system on which one it's suppose to
    read
5. since it's a custom made cheat database, you might need to check to see if it's not corrupted
