    Hi! I was hoping someone can help me. I downloaded the cheat.dat and usrcheat.dat and placed it on my R4 _system_ folder. It says it has the game ragnarok online ds in it. Now I dont know how to actually use the cheats! when i load ragnarok it just goes directly to the game without asking me to activate any cheats! Do i have to rename my ragnarok game into something? HELP!

    You have to activate and save the cheat(s) before you boot the game. Press Y when the game is highlighted on the menu screen.

    If it's got the cheat and everything then instead of loading it up you look at the touch screen and there should be an icon sayign Cheat (Y), click it and then activate which cheats you want [​IMG]

    If you don't see it, get rid of usrcheat.
    If it still doesn't work, use Yasu's R4 Cheat Editor to delete unwanted games off the list until it's around 3MB

    Maybe you didn't name the cheat file correctly. What kind of R4 flash cart do you have? I have the R4 SDHC clone and for me, I have to download the USRCHEAT.dat from the GBAtemp directory and rename it as CHEAT.dat in order for it to read it. When I download the CHEAT.dat from GBAtemp, I think my r4 reads it as corrupt or something because the cheats don't even pop up for any of the games.

    holychild,

    i had actually posted once on your double post. Please take a look on the FAQ provided on my signature...

    Hey thanks for that. I have one of those SDHC battery-eater monsters and could never make cheats work with it. Will try later.
