    Hi,

    I have a problem with the cheats on Acekard 2.1. I've tried using Narin's cheats from cheats.gbatemp.net to get the gta chinatown cheats to work. However, it shows up with "No cheats in DB". I'm using AKAIO 1.5 and also official AK2 firmware, which both won't work.

    But...my DSTT works with cheats. Can anyone please help me in this problem? Thanks. It would be greatly appreciated.

    You didn't tell if your copy of GTA is patched. If it is the ID changed so the cart won't find it in database. Just change it with R4cce.

    Thanks for the suggestion flusflus89, but I've checked the game ID using Yasu's r4cce and is correct. The cheats work on DSTT but somehow doesn't work on Acekard2.1. I have used a patched rom and another rom I've downloaded and both work on DSTT.

    Anymore suggestions?

    Do you have cheats for any other games working? Did you set the acekard to read the version of cheats you have?

    Yes, I've enabled the cheats and have tried cheat.day, usrcheat.dat and cheats.xml, where I've put in the cheats folder of official AK2 firmware and also the AKAIO cheats folder just before the 'CC' folder.

    Has anyone gotten the chinatown cheats to work, cause I've had no luck and am trying. Thanks.

    Nope they don't work they freeze when I press the cheat button. o.o on gta.

    Scratch that they work now after trying it again. Or maybe it was that I updated my loaders.

    Boxshot, I misread your reply...so they actually work? What firmware, etc. are you using? I'm desperate for cheats! [​IMG]

    The clean rom doesn't work on any flashcart. Only the patched ARM7 one works, which I am using...Thanks tho.

    so do your friend a favour and download a clean rom in front of them and show them that a clean rom works [​IMG]

    and watch as they swear at you [​IMG]
