    Sorry if this was asked before or if this is the wrong section of the forums, but I have a question.

    I just recently got a DSTT so I'm sorta new to its functions and such. I got the games working and all, but certain cheats dont work for certain games, but some do for others. in example, in zelda phantom hourglass, the "all ship parts" cheat code shows up, but when ticked and activated, doesn't work...and I don't know why. (maybe something wrong with the cheat data itself?)

    And I noticed .arp files on my sd card for games that i have used cheats on, and ive seen those specific files for both games where the cheats have worked, and for the zelda game i was speaking of, which doesnt work. Are the .arp files necessary in order for cheats to work? (my guess is yes.)

    Any feedback is much appreciated, thanks. [​IMG]

    ah k thanks.

    I'm using the the 1.17a01 firmware which is supposed to not kill your dstt if it were a fake, would that still work? (my dstt is real but I'm using that firmware, could that be a problem?)

    And yea I have the latest .dat file named to usrcheat.dat

    So is it ok for me to delete the .arp files?

    thanks again.

    EDIT: Grammar mistake

    Thanks again dude. I'll go check it out using the cheat code editor, if it doesn't work, oh well.

    Thanks again! [​IMG]

    You should update your firmware to the unofficial 1.17a02 (see the FAQ stickied to the top of the DSTT forum for more details).

    Great....I just realized that the comments that are supposed to tell you how to activate it didn't show, thought I just had to tick it.

    Actually some comments on some of my cheats don't show, is there a reason why? And if they do show its sorta cuts off.

    (But I got the cheat that I mentioned earlier that doesn't work to work by pressing L and R *which I could have only seen through the comments* so I'm happy.)

    I had the same problem before where the fake killer code cheat thing did not work on my version 1.17 dstt with fake killer code what i did was insert cheat.dat with the usrcheat.dat files both in the same place and with the same cheats and what do you know it worked =3
