    the forum part is down but the cheat database is still up though it hasn't been updated since march [it says october but nothing was added to the changelog], anyone know why that is?

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    The forum is up, I'm able to navigate it just fine.

    The GBAtemp cheat database isn't updated regularly anymore, but the Codemasters Project (CMP) cheat database is. Download this tool to get the latest cheat file.

    Probably being lazy.
    I have to admit, I actually prefer the CMP database anyway.

    However, it's sad to see the GBATemp one dead like this.

    Oh and I am getting the same error, so it's not just you guys.

    It's to do with the SMF configuration pointing to a MySQL server at localhost, and as there are now two webservers, the main one (i.e. the one we're on right now) does not have the database. Densetsu is lucky/unlucky enough to have been allocated to the other webserver, which does have the database. You can still visit the forums via a hosts file fix (which I'm not documenting for a number of reasons). Narin cannot fix the forums as he left his position a while ago, although Costello can (it'd require either moving the MySQL Database, or pointing one config file at the other server).
    As for why it uses a local server as opposed to the centralized one the main site uses? The entire forum was an experiment of sorts, but unfortunately the rest of the Cheat Code Crew has left for other sites (including CMP).

    the cheats forum is back online 100%

    it went offline partially (for 66% of people) due to the changes described here:
    http://gbatemp.net/topic/311773-experiment-in-progress/

    as for the cheat database itself, well, it's not updated anymore so follow the recommendations of the people above :)

    CMP doesn't support XML either, can't use my action replay DSi with it. Supports piates, but not any legit people that want to cheat on a real game.

    I am a long time browser never really spoke in forums but i loged in to say that I also cannot connect to the cheat forums anymore so i dont think they are 100% unless your still configuring them as you linked in that link post. Not sure what would cause a large group of people not see it.

    This is an old topic and no longer relevant.

    GBAtemp cheats will be restored later.
