On my switch, I want to use cheats on games obviously. I can use tinfoil but it isn't updated often. It might be but it has very few cheats on games that I play a lot such as dead cells. Just wondering is there possibly a way to update tinfoil cheats? Every time I launch cheats through checkpoint it crashes. Maybe there is a simple fix I am not sure. Thank you if you can help.

Go ahead and search for a certain wonderful homebrew called "All in one switch updater" and it'll update your cheats with a simple button press. Also if you're on atmosphere use the tesla overlay.

Also the tesla overlay seems too much for me to be honest. Is there a easy way to use cheats

how is it too much?
just put edizon + tesla overlay on your sd card press "L + keypad down + R3" to open over lay and select cheats for the game you are playing

Are you on SX or atmosphere? If anything just make sure all the file paths are correct. I've never had a game crash on me upon cheat activation :blink:

I meant the switch was crashing. But there is only a few cheats for games. Even though I used the updater. Like on zelda which is known is have lots of cheats there is only 2 on it.

double check if cheats in the folders and make sure to turn auto cheats on to off
How do I turn auto cheats off?

On SD card go to Atmosphere config template and take out the System setting.ini
Open it , search the line "; dmnt_cheats_enabled_by_default = u8!0x1"
Change it to this, simply remove the ";"
and copy this dmnt_cheats_enabled_by_default = u8!0x0"
