    The only site I managed to find some codes is http://www.zophar.net/cheats/nes.html but there are only a few cheats.
    Can anyone post a link from somewhere else with more cheats,please?
    Or even better,can anyone upload on the site a FCEUGX cheats database?
    Thanks in advance!

    Right Behind You! Uh Oh!

    Everything you need to know to cheat your ass off on FCE Ultra GX.

    First you don't need to use .cht files (they are optimal, but not necessary).

    This is the largest list of precreated .cht files:

    If your game or code doesn't exist there then go here:
    This is the largest list of game genie codes.

    Using Game Genie Codes in FEC Ultra GX:

    This is where I found the game in question:

    SUELSUVS Infinite lives
    PAUVEZLA 1 continue
    TAUVEZLA 6 continues
    PAUVEZLE 9 continues
    AESSLAEA Don't lose 'zzz' when hit
    AAXOLAPA Don't lose 'zzz' when standing still
    ZAXOLAPA Lose 'zzz' quicker
    IEULIGLA Mega-jumping teenagers

    Now with these codes in hand you can easily cheat your way to 9 continues.
    You should have a folder named "fceugx" on the root of your Wii SD card. If not create one. In this folder are three other folders; "cheats","saves" and "roms". Into this folder, along side the other three folders, you need to place a file called "gg.rom". This is as the name states the Game Genie Rom("Game Genie (Unl).nes"). Just rename it to "gg.rom" and copy it to "/fceugx/".

    Once you have done this, every time you start a game with FCEUGX, you will first load into the Game Genie. From here you can enter the above code and start the game with it applied. But if you want in game control over your cheat, you are going to need to use .cht files.

    Creating .cht Files:
    There are several method of doing this, but I have found only one to work all the time.

    First download fceux-2.1.1.win32.
    Don't worry linux users. This work perfectly well in wine and the cheat management system is much better.

    With FCEUX 2.1.1 running on your computer open the rom you wish to cheat. ("Nightmare_on_elm_street.nes")
    Select "Debug" from the top menu then select "Game Geine Encoder/Decoder"
    A new window will pop up. Enter you Game Genie code in the upper right hand corner titled "Game Genie Code" ("PAUVEZLE"). Now click the "Add To Cheat List" button and then close the "Game Genie Encoder/Decoder" window.
    To check and see if your codes are in the Cheat List. Select from the top menu "Tools" then "Cheats". This will pop up a new window displaying your cheat. Finally close this and exit FCEUX 2.1.1

    Using .cht Files:

    On exit FCEUX 2.1.1 will create the file "Nightmare_on_elm_street.cht" in the "/fceu-2.1.1.win32/cheats/" directory.
    If you open it in a text editor it will read "SCea38:09:03:PAUVEZLE".
    Copy this files to the "/fceugx/cheats/" directory on your Wii SD card. (Or if you found one at Zophar you can use that.)

    With your cheat file in place start the game with FCE Ultra GX. If the game genie loads just press plus to skip it. Press "Home" click "Game Settings" then "Cheats". Click your cheat to "On" then "Go Back" and "Close". Now play your game and cheat away.

    Creating .cht file takes some time, but allows you to turn the cheats on and off during the game. In a situation like a cheat for 9 continues. The cheat can work in one of two ways. Either the cheat will constantly update the continue number to 9, or you will start with 9 instead of the usual number. If the second is the case you can always get another 9 continues, by turning the cheat off and on. This works best in a game like "Super Mario Bros. 3". You can create a .cht file with multiple codes (ex. Frog, Raccoon and Fire Mario). Then by turning the codes on and off during the game you could switch between the characters. If you where using Game Genie codes you would be stuck with one the whole time.

    I put a .cht file in a folder called cheats inside the fceugx folder, yet when i load the game the cheat file is for, it says "cheat file not found" I'm running fceugx 3.0.9 btw. Any ideas?

    the .cht file must have the exact same name as the ROM file
    and it must be a correct .cht file
