    Hi everyone

    I know the cheats database is in this site: http://fort42.cu.cc/gateshark/, but I don't know how I can put them in the cheats folder of the micro sd red gateway:!:

    Can anyone help me?

    Ok thank you. I tried, but nothing happens.. Maybe doing something wrong..

    So game title for the txt file and inside I only put the cheat, nothing more?

    Open the sample cheat txt from GW folder and see how they are added/modify. The cheats are region lock. You load game and I think press select in-game to select cheats. Goto GW homepage and watch the video.

    *EDIT* I just watched video you press select for game menu, select game and then press X to load cheat menu.

    The basics of it:
    Make a folder called "cheats" on your Gateway Micro SD Card.
    In that folder, make a text file for your game. The name of this file should be its ID, which can be found at http://www.3dsdb.com/. For example, Monster Hunter Cross would have a file named "0004000000155400.txt"

    After you have your file, you lay the cheats out as such:

    [Cheat name in square brackets]
    XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX

    Where the Xs are the cheat code. It's worth noting it can also be laid out like this:

    [Cheat name in square brackets]XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX

    But the first way looks neater. Hope this helps you some ^^

    EDIT: Just in case you're not sure how to actually use the cheats, you load the Gateway menu, and where you would usually press A to select your game, instead press Y. After that, press A to turn on each cheat and press Start to mount the game. After that, the cheats will be applied until you switch game.

    First of all you can read the article dedicated to the 3.5 version introducing cheat function (http://www.gateway-3ds.com/gateway-ultra-v3-5-public-beta/), specially this part:
    This is pretty explicit on where to put the files and how to activate the cheats.

    The TitleID is the unique ID of the game, if you look into the existing cheats folder zipped with the last Gateway version, you can see some txt files named accordingly (i.e. 0004000000035400.txt where 0004000000035400 is the TitleID).

    So now let's say you want to cheat on Ridge Racer 3D EUR :
    1/ Go to http://fort42.cu.cc/gateshark/game12/ and look at the Title ID > for this game it's 0004000000033B00
    2/ Create a txt file named after this TitleID > 0004000000033B00.txt
    3/ Copy the cheat title inside the file > [99999999 Points Earned]
    Be sure to put the title between brackets ([ and ]) if it's not already the case on the website.
    4/ Just below the title copy the code > 08130930 05F5E0FF
    Be sure to copy the code as is (multiple lines on the website = multiple lines in the txt file).
    If there are several cheats just jump a line and copy the next cheat the same way.
    The content of the txt file should look like this:
    Code:
    [99999999 Points Earned]
    08130930 05F5E0FF
    
    [Another Bogus Cheat]
    012345678 9ABCDEF0
    123456789 ABCDEF01
    5/ Save the txt file and put it inside the "cheats" folder on the microSD card
    6/ Put your Ridge Racer 3D EUR rom in 3DS format on the microSD card
    7/ Follow the instructions to launch the game with selected cheats
