    I have an M3 DS Real with a GBA expansion pack. I've been playing Pokemon Fire Red lately and (call me a cheater) I've been feeling lost without my rare candies! I've been experimenting with instructions found on this site here, but haven't had any luck. Does anyone know of a way to make a working cheat file for the M3 DS Real? I'd also take a pre-made file for Fire Red if anyone has one.

    im also having trouble with this. the m3 cht files you can download from their sites dont have any cheats i want. PharaohsVizier, by sharing the same cht files, will i be able to use a cht file from a supercard on the m3 ds with the gba expansion?

    I tried using AR2CHT, and my cheat showed up in the menu (a good sign) but when I choose it and load up the game, it just doesn't work. Here's the cheat I'm trying to use: 77db5497 d7ee8c96. It should give me 99 rare candies in my PC, but it doesn't. I know the code works because I've used it in VBA. Any suggestions?

    You don't use the (m) code right? I'm pretty sure you're supposed to exclude that, so that's what I've been doing. If that's wrong then someone tell me. Really the only code I care about is the one I put a few posts up. It just doesn't want to work for some reason. Any ideas?

    You're probably right since you actually got it working! I'm going to experiment with it a little more later tonight, but I probably won't get any results!

    EDIT: PharohsVizier, when you got it working, was it on an M3 or Supercard?

    i don't use that program ar2cht. i just make my own cht files, that way i know my codes will work. go to http://www.m3wiki.com/index.php/GBA_Cht to know how to make your own cht files

    btw, you don't need the (m) codes. those are just for real codebreakers and action replays

    maybe he doesn't fully understand the instructions on how to use those softwares, that's why it didn't work for him

    ar2cht only handles decrypted AR codes. Decrypt it with ARcrypt and try again.

    I didn't know I had to decrypt it first. That may be the problem. I'll try that and see if it works. And I don't need (m) codes correct?

    No they are useless for built-in cheat engines.

    Still no luck. Here's what I did this time. I put my cheat code into raw format using ARCrypt. Then I saved the code it produced in a text file in the format AR2CHT requires. AR2CHT then converted it, giving me a CHT file. The code shows up in the code list, but it just doesn't work! Any other ideas?

    Use GBAATM with the Codebreaker version of the code:

    8202583c 0044
    8202583e 0063

    why don't you post the codes, and i'll convert them for you, if they are convertable to the code typ cht files use (since some are not yet convertable i think)

    edit: nvm, i see you posted the code already will try to convert that

    edit 2:here ya go: cht file for rare candies

    FINALLY! It's working great! Thanks! Can I ask though what process you went through and what programs you used to do this? It would be useful in case I want another code [​IMG]

    This isn't the correct place to put it...
    but how do you get GBA pokemon games to save on the M3?

    well, i only used two programs: arcrypt and notepad

    arcrypt, for decrypting codes (you don't need this if the codes you need is in unencrypted codebreaker format or raw format)
    notepad, for making the cht file

    as for the process, i just followed what was in m3wiki:
    1. get codes
    2. if codes are in unencrypted cb format or raw format, skip to step 4, otherwise continue to step 3
    3. use arcrypt to convert the codes to raw format
    4a. convert them like so

    a. unencrypted cb

    8200xxxx yyzz -> 0xxxx,zz,yy (just delete the first 3 digits then invert the places of yy and zz separated by commas)
    or
    8300xxxx yyzz -> 4xxxx,zz,yy (same as above except replace the 4th digit with a 4)
    or
    3200xxxx 00zz -> 0xxxx,zz (same as code type 820 except there is no yy) (those with code type 3200xxxx yyzz aren't supported i think)
    or
    3399xxxx 00zz -> 4xxxx,zz (same as code type 830)
    b. raw
    0220xxxx 0000yyzz -> 0xxxx,zz,yy (same as above)

    4b. for multiline codes, just separate them by semicolons

    0xxxx,zz,yy;0xxxx,zz,yy

    5. type them up in notepad like so:

    [name of code]
    ON=0xxxx,zz,yy

    6. save it up as "filename.cht"

    note: either some code types are not supported or are not yet known how to be converted
    note 2: ON can be anything actually, it's just a convention (ON, OFF)
    note 3: somebody correct me if i made mistakes

    edit: added "the process"

    Wow! Sounds complicated! Think I'll just stick to my rare candies for now!
