I'm attempting to use Dipstar Version 5.11 to Cheat in Harvest Moon DS, but there are a few things that continue to vex me. Master Code The first thing I've tried to do is figure out what the Master Code to my ROM (Harvest Moon DS) is. After all, I'm not going to get much of anything done without that, right? It took me a bit to figure out how to run NDSMas.exe, a program that came bundled in my original .zip file, but I have that up and running...or so I think. When I enter the appropriate command line, I'm informed that my Master Code is F21395A8 E12FFF1E, which should work, but doesn't. Rather, the game freezes just a split-second before I get to the New Game and Load Game options. Does anyone know another method of searching for the Master Code? Google Search got me nada, so it seems I need to find another program. Action Replay Code Conversion One of the most important things I've been trying to wrap my head around is the concept that Action Replay codes are supposedly easy to convert to Dipstar Codes, but I have to admit that the one or two 'Guides' to conversion are...well...pretty much crap. Here's how I think it's supposed to work, and if you find any flaws, please let me know! Action Replay 0XXXXXXX YYYYYYYY - 32bit 1XXXXXXX 0000YYYY - 16bit 2XXXXXXX 000000YY - 08bit Dipstar 0XXXXXXX 000000YY - 08bit 1XXXXXXX 0000YYYY - 16bit 2XXXXXXX YYYYYYYY - 32bit Going by the model, it would seem that any Action Replay code starting with '0' should be considered 32bits. i'm not sure why, but I'll assume it has something to do with some technical jargon that's currently beyond me. Anyways, as that's the case, you would use the Dipstar 32bit Model to re-write it, thusly converting it. I'll toss in a few quick codes as examples. Harvest Moon DS Max/Infinite Money AR: 023D6B08 05F5E0FF DS: 223D6B08 05F5E0FF As you can see, these codes are both nearly identical. The only differance between the two is the fact that we've changed the first character from '0' to '2'. Let's try a differant code to ensure that I'm correct in my assumptions concerning the overall pattern. Harvest Moon DS Extra Stamina AR: 223D6B06 000000FF DS: 023D6B06 000000FF Once again it's a very simple matter to convert Action Replay codes to Dipstar codes...or so it seems. As of the time of this posting, I haven't found a single thread that allows a user to convert anything other than codes with starting values of 0, 1 or 2. It seems that poor folks like us will need someone with the intelligence and wherewithal to hack into ROMs to find other codes. Entering The Codes And finally I enter the codes themselves. Maybe this is where I'm going wrong, though I don't see how. My entry is as follows... 00: F21395A8 E12FFF1E 01: 223D6B08 05F5E0FF Every guide I've came across states that this entry should work, but it doesn't. I have a feeling my primary issue is that dern Master Code, but I have nothing to base that against. Comments? Suggestions? I'm open to anything at this point. When I tried the M3 Method of getting Dipstar to run I lost my save file, so I'd really like to figure this out.
