    Hi,
    today i downloaded the newest cheat.dat from here
    http://cheats.gbatemp.net/
    I copied it onto my card but i cant cheat at any game. I renamed some games before i put it onto the flash card so that i can find them better but i also left some like they have been before so that cant be the reason. I hope that someone of you can help me.

    I also tested the cheat.dat with deleted japanese games because of problems with the r4 but this one did not work either for me.

    Hoping for help.

    yours

    delete both your cheat files and use just the CHEAT(UE).DAT it should work fine don't use the USRCHEAT + CHEAT dats at the same time it causes lots of problems with too many cheats [​IMG]

    Hi,
    thats what i did. I had one cheat.dat and it was replaced by the other. So only one in the system folder. I also tested the UE Version but this did not work either.

    11_23_08_CHEAT(UE).DAT.zip [Link] 3.55 MBs 24 Nov 2008 04:45 this was the one i tested

    only way i found round it was format the card that seem to fix it
    but the best option is to buy a cycloDS as they are a far better card
    IMO

    you have a clone. gbatemp's cheat files do not work on r4-iii upgrade revolution . if you have r4-iii upgrade revolution you have a clone. r4-iii upgrade revolution has CHEAT.DAT. just put the cheats in the dat file manually because gbatemp has dat files only for original r4 (i think) [​IMG]

    what's your r4 called?

    How do I manually enter codes into my R4 HDSC? Do i do it with a text editor or with a cheat code editor? If I use an editor, which one works with the cloned R4's?

    I had no idea my R4 was a clone until I tried to get Phantasy Star Zero to work!

    THANKS

    Try using the usrcheat.dat file and rename it cheat.dat and see if that works.

    If it's an "R4 Ultra" and has r4ultra.com on it, it's real. R4 Ultra is the name for the SDHC version and uses the same firmware as the R4i but only the R4i is compatible with the DSi.

    I have the same problem - cannot get cheats working on R4 Ultra. I have tried various usrcheat.dat and cheat.dat files but they don't work. If I use a usrcheat.dat file, nothing is displayed when pressing Cheat(Y). If I use a cheat.dat file it say "cheat not found". If I use the original from the firmware, it works but the cheats are in chinese (V1.52 from r4ultra.com)

    I think I may have sorted this (problem is that cheats on standard V1.52 on R4 Ultra are in chinese)
    I have tried various cheat.dat and usrcheat.dat with no success on an r4 ultra (ordinary r4 has no problems with this)
    If you try to use usrcheat.dat - nothing happens when you press Cheat(Y)
    If you try to use cheat.dat you get "No Cheat Found"

    I have just downloaded r4cce85 and also the 01_30_09_CHEATS.XML from gbatemp.
    I used the r4cce85 to import the xml file and the saved as cheat.dat with NO encryption.

    It seems to be ok now and I have english cheats - although not all the games are displaying the cheats that in the in db - i guess this is down to the version i have aquired ?

    Make sure you also delete all previos CHT files before doing this.

    The reason I was trying to do this was to get Phantasy Star Zero working on a R4 clone, well...

    I got PSZ to work on my R4 SDHC NEW and someone's R4 Revolution (both clones).

    I used a CylcoDS to try the game and it worked (of course) so I tried the same SD card in the R4 and BOOM it worked too. I think either the CycloDS patched it or (more likely) the R4 was getting stuck trying to create a save game file and once one was already there it just loaded that.

    Try just renaming a save game file to the same as PSZ. Or post here and I'll send you the blank save file my CycloDS created.
