    Good Day everybody,

    I think you are all telling me NOOB FUCKK OFF READ STICKY N00BZZ0RSS 1337!! because i'm stuck at the point of cheating on my NDS, but i already looked everywhere and dindn't came to a conclusion what i did wrong or what to do next.
    My problem is: when i want to cheat on a game (i'll take pokemon platinum (U) for example) it wont show up the Cheat (Y) button. I do have a _DS_MENU fix, fixed it myself AND got a pre-fix from this forum, but it won't show up. I have the USRCHEAT.dat in the _system folder, still won't show up. But the odd thing is, for some games it will show up. Since i bought myself a R4, this games pop up with CHEAT (Y) button, but other games simply won't. I have tried many things as far, but i haven't been able to cheat on other games which i would like to give a go. I tried the USRCHEAT.dat and CHEAT.dat (not at same time, i was told it wouldn't work) but none of them worked (latest versions)

    I don't understand anything about YSMenu, i would like to give it a try when somebody explains it to me and how to get it. I got the YSmenu folder completly, did everything the tutorial said and put it on my R4 Card (In one YSMenu folder and everything in the root) but it freezes at the Loading... if you put it in the root and if you put it in one folder it says _DS_MENU not found.

    Would anybody have a solution to my dissapointment?

    Yours Sincerely,

    Neonixx.

    hello

    download r4cce
    "put" your usrcheat.dat on the r4cce window program.

    when the list of all games is displayed, delete all games you don't have (it's a bit long, i have done it too), and keep games you have.
    in an other words, "clean" the usrcheat.dat file to your personnal games you have.

    it will work after that.

    Click here for the best guide I found for YSMenu. The one Spek made won't work since you're missing r4patch. It's pong106's Guide. Use it for YSMenu then follow gamez's directions for the usrcheat.dat and R4CCE and your cheating problems will be fixed forever (Most likely, at least).

    Well I tried to use r4cce and deleted everything exept the pokemon game, and i put it on my r4 (overwrited old version) and still won't show up! The weird thing is, all other games just show up normally, even after i deleted thim on r4cce!

    Edit: Have YSMenu working now [​IMG]

    No cheats again, just for the games that worked ever since i bought the r4.

    this, is not normal at all.

    try with the cheat.dat file (and remove the usrcheat.dat) in the _system_ directory

    Yes, you did everything so wrong this is why don't see your codes!

    go download a new copy of usrcheat.dat from cheats.gbatemp.net if you are using YASUMENU!

    Still won't work, neither R4 or YSmenu...

    Do your games need to have the original name or do they work withouth name?

    Neonixx, if those methods don't work for you then these should :

    open usrcheat.dat with r4cce and delete tons of games from there then save the file and make sure that the new filesize of urscheat.dat is below 4mb
    for example: if you want to cheat on Pokemon games then delete all games that is above the Pokemon games.

    and some people said: if the cheats for a game are in the cheat database, but cheats doesn't show up on the R4, use r4cce and move those cheats to the top of the list and save the file

    i assume he screwed up one of the process or he just didn't follow our instructions

    the problem should be game id if he setup yasumenu properly while using usrcheat.dat
    the last problem could be SD card or he need a reformat og his SD card

    we have given all possible solutions [​IMG]
    i even post up a guide on how to create database for r4 users!
    if he can't figure it out just don't cheat

    Its like another file is overrupting the new USRCHEAT but i looked all over the place, found nothing -.-


    What means: ARE YOUR GAMES PATCHED?
