    i went through all of the utilitys page, all i find for editing cheats is the "Cheats Editor" over and over. i got i different one and it gives me an error in chinese anywyas. i try to use the cheat editor 1.1, 1.2 beta ext but when i try to load my edgecheats.dat it sais "database format error". is there any way to make it work? or is there some other editor out there that i can use?
    what im trying to do is add in the cheats to make M+L 3 work correctly, any ideas?
    thank

    Use a program called "R4CCE". You can download it here: http://home.usay.jp/pc/soft_en.html. It should be listed in the second box. Click the blue link that says r4cce.zip.

    Extract it, whatever. Load the r4cce.exe, browse for your cheats.dat inside your EDGE folder or where ever you have the .dat file you want to edit, and from there it should list your games. From there you can add, edit, and delete codes.

    It's self explanatory really. When you're done, just go to File, Save As..., and overwrite your existing cheats.dat.

    Also, remember the rename the, "edgecheats.dat", to "cheats.dat".

    That's odd. Working fine for me. [​IMG]

    Are you sure you have the r4cce.exe placed with all the other files the folder contains? Like this?
