    No, no no NOT THE CODES [​IMG]
    I mean is there an action replay.nds file out there that can be run on r4, and then used on legit games?
    I mean as in you plug in r4, boot it up and run a file called actionreplay.nds in the game menu.
    You then remove the r4 and plug in the legit game cart and click start and it runs with cheats....
    I mean like the real one with the action replay ds card.

    Please, help is appreciated

    Use NitroHax. It is the equivalent of what your looking for.

    Place only 5game cheat list at a time..

    its normal to hang up on that homebrew if you have more than 5 game cheats on your cheat file.

    the cheat file you loaded might have more than 5 sets of game cheats on it.. if it is.. then it will just hang.. just place a 5 set or less of game cheats on the cheat file..

    if you downloaded the cheat file from gbatemp database.. probably that cheat file contains 4000+ sets of game cheats. And that file will never ever work on that homebrew.. as of 1... its encrypted.. and 2 its too big too handle by that homebrew

    ....

    how to make your own cheat file..

    - download the R4CCC and place the cheat codes you want to use..
    - save the file.. and place it to your memory card
    - try loading the file again.. it should able to load the cheat file now

    You'll have to edit the XML manually. I'll post a mini guide to that in a minute.

    Manually editing cheat XML file

    You need:
    • Text Editor
    • Cheat XML file
    Guide:


    1. Open the cheat XML file in a text editor, and also open a blank document
    2. Copy the first two lines from the cheat XML to the blank document, which should read:

    CODE


    3. Use the search function of the text editor to search for the first game you want to cheat on. Make sure you find the correct region (the four digit code at the start of the "gameid" tag will end in P for PAL games, E for USA games and J for Japanese games). Copy from the line above the name of the game, which says to the line after all the codes which says , for example:

    CODE
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂCall Of Duty 4
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂYCOP 0d45e192
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ2007/11/20 16:31
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂInfinite Health
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂDoes not prevent instant death/knockouts
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ6213a4ec 00000000 b213a4ec 00000000 000000b4 00444444
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ
    ÂÂÂÂ

    (note: there are often more than one code per game, I chose this example as its short)

    4. Paste this into the second document after the two lines already copied
    5. (Optional): Repeat steps 3 and 4 to add more games (but don't add too many, or NitroHax will freeze; I advise keeping the end filesize of the XML under 2MB to be on the safe side - you can always have more than one XML, make each one as instructed here)
    6. Add the following to the end of the file:

    CODE

    7. Save the file as cheats.xml and place it at DATA\NitroHax\cheats.xml
    8. (Optional) If you have multiple XMLs to fit more games than will fit in one XML, you must name each one differently and place them somewhere on your memory card, and then select the correct one each time you load NitroHax. (Make sure none of them are named cheats.xml)

    I hope this helps and isn't too hard to follow.
