    Seriously?
    You need to learn how to google shit.


    1). File -> Open Rom... -> (Pick your ROM)
    2). Emulation -> Cheats -> List -> ["Cheats list" window]
    3). Click the Action Replay button -> ["Add Action Replay code" window]
    4). Paste your AR code and give it a description, then click Add button
    5). Repeat Steps 3~4 for each code you want
    6). Here's the tricky part... on the "Cheats list" window, press the SAVE button

    No, your problem is you're very un-descriptive of the problems you run into.


    What does the error say? "Can't save cheats to file."
    Go Config -> Path Settings -> Cheats and make sure your path is set to a folder you can write to, like your DeSmuME folder.
    If your DeSmuME folder is inside C:\Program Files (i.e. C:\Program Files\DeSmuME 0.9.6\) then you should move the whole folder outside because UAC in Windows Vista/7 prevents non-admin elevated programs from writing to anything inside C:\Program Files.

    Okay that still didn't work. The add button that you use when your about to add a cheat...its not highlighted and won't let me click it.
    Sorry for not being so descriptive.

    What version of DeSmuME are you using?
    I think 0.9.2 didn't have AR Cheat support

    Or do you mean the Add button on the "Add Action Replay code" window is grayed out, like this:

    If so, you need to add the code first, then the Add button is click-able.
