    Hi guys. New to posting here, but I've been coming here occasionally to check out homebrew suggestions or ROM translation progress in the forums.

    Anyway, I've just encountered a problem with my AK2i. My cheats don't seem to be working. I'm using the 7/15/09 cheat update from cheats.gbatemp in addition to AKAIO (1.4.1). I've tried both USRCHEAT.DAT and CHEAT.DAT, but neither seem to work. I've attempted using cheats on 0366 (US release of Tetris), 0696 (Jump Ultimate Stars, with translation patch), and 3563 (J release of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's WC09).

    I hit Y on the game, tap Cheats, select which cheats I want, hit select (start works too?), then load the game, but when the codes are supposed to work, they don't.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Are you pressing select after choosing the codes you want? Otherwise if you press B they won't save... [​IMG]

    EDIT: Sorry didn't read your question properly...

    Yeah, I'm hitting select.

    EDIT: Okay. :'D

    EDIT EDIT?: Well, I've tried both start and select, but neither seems to work. Tetris was the only one that had an (M) code (I don't think I ever encountered those when I was using an R4 before).

    After you hit "Y", tap the "Rom Settings" button and under the "Cheat/Action Replay" option choose "Enable".

    You can also enable cheats globally by hitting Start then System Options.

    I still get the same response after pressing Y and enabling cheats. I thought this would be the solution for sure!

    :sigh:

    I'll try finding different cheat files I guess? Maybe that's my problem.

    All I wanted was to enable x2 exp on DQ5 haha. [​IMG]
