    lately i have been trying to add custom codes for pokemon pearl and diamond into the USRCHEAT.dat database. I am running akaio 1.5 on an acekard 2i, and cheats/games work perfectly, except i can't seem to add a custom code to the database. I have successfully added the code using r4cce086, and saved it as a .dat file, but when i move that cheat database onto __aio/cheats, the cheat i added just doesn't show up when i try to select it on my ds. i think this may have something to do with the CC folder, because if i remove the CC folder, no cheat databases show up when trying to select cheats on my ds.

    i am wondering if anyone knows how i can successfully add a cheat to USRCHEAT.dat

    thanks in advance for any help =D

    remember to SORT after you add a new game (do it on r4cce)

    remember to rebuilt after you add your own codes (do it on the cheat menu)

    a few seconds or less
    depends on the amount of cheats you have for the game [​IMG]
    without sorting.. you might get stucked on that forever [​IMG]

    rebuilding works like update?
    so whatever you added will be reflected..
