    Hello GBAtemp,

    Disclaimer: These cheats currently only work with the Japanese version of FE and the thread was created long before the American release, I'm sorry if you tried to get them to work on the english version, but as it stands they don't. For current hacking options you can check fort42 for either Gateway or Spider cheat codes. (Spider works only on O3DS as far as I know, and Gateway is limited to those who own the cart.)

    I've been getting some great use out of a Chinese cheat plugin for FE:I and was thinking that some other individuals would like to have a more comprehensive way of using the tool. So I wrote up a brief tutorial on how to use the cheat plugin in NTR and how to then activate the codes once inside the game.

    A brief tutorial:
    1.) Go to http://www.speedfly.cn/10488.html and download the latest build
    1.b) Make sure you have the latest NTR build and cia downloaded onto emuNAND (Which can be acquired here https://gbatemp.net/threads/ntr-cfw-3-0.393710)
    2.) Put the cheat file into SD:\plugin\000400000012DE00\cheat.plg
    3.) Launch emuNAND
    4.) Launch NTR (if it freezes on scv check hard reset and try again)
    5.) Launch FE:I and if you see a green flash before the game starts then the cheats work

    Now for the codes that I have figured out:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Edit: Thanks to Green Mii for aid with the unknown codes

    Some small tips to using the tool,

    Fates anti-cheat prevention
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Another thing to note is that within NTR mode you do not have the ability to access out of region DLC, meaning that the third path at this time is accessible for hacking. I have attempted to use the region language plugin to enable out of region DLC on my New3DS, but have had no luck with the endeavor. If someone ends up figuring this piece out then please leave a response and I will add it to the OP.

    finally I suggest if you have the NTR save plugin you disable it by renaming the folder it is located in before attempting to use the tool, as it seems when overlapping there is a high chance (if not %100) of crashing the game.

    I certainly hope this helps! If you have any questions feel free to leave a post and I'll give you any advice that I may have.

    How exactly do I download any of the plugins from that site? I can get to a link that looks like a download site (baidu.com) but I can't find anything that looks like an actual download button on there.

    I tested pretty much all the codes, as well, so I can attest that all your descriptions are correct. As for the ones you didn't get...

    Hopefully this helps you out. Thanks for making this! It will certainly help those who don't want to randomly test Chinese codes.

    I suggest you get a language translator program on your browser to best understand the site, as it is rather difficult to explain without knowing Japanese. But there are three drop down arrows halfway down the page, the second one contains the link to the download.

    Thank you for the help, I've edited the op to contain the changes. I'm glad to hear you're getting some good use out of it!

    Google Chrome has a built in translator I was using but I didn't see the arrows. I ended up working around it by using a download manager like thing and putting the baidu link into it, which worked perfectly. Thanks though.

    Another tip. I've tested a lot of what gets you banned back when the cheats first came out. You can give your characters all skills, just make sure that when you update your castle, they don't have any that's boss/npc equipped. You can have them just fine, when someone takes your unit, they automatically remove all illegal skills, leaving the person with every obtainable skill. I've tested this when I was sharing my witch classes before the DLC came out. You can use the have all items but you need to remove any non-player obtainable items from your inventory/equips. Weapons made for single characters that can be gotten in the main story in anyway is fine (Ryuoma's Thunder Blade, evil god blade while on Hoshido, etc) despite you not being able to remove them like other weapons. That's due to the fact that you can't remove/store them in the first place. You can test it out but from personal experience, I know how it works.

    How can I trigger the cheat? I already put the file into the Id folder,removed the region plugin file and open the game using NTR but I just can't trigger the cheat. What did I miss?

    The cheats work along with the language/DLC plugins. When you are in game, press X+Y to pull up the NTR menu and scroll down to Game Plugin.

    Yes, it works with cias (I'm also playing on the English translation patch). I haven't experienced any crashes in game except for when trying to do online castle stuff with the plugin activated.

    Can someone reupload the plugin to another site? I'm not able to download from any of the links on the speedfly website.

    Try this Mega link. With NTR 3.0+ and this updated cheat plugin, you no longer need the button combos to use the cheats. As @Laterite said, press X+Y while in game, scroll down to Game Plugin, and the cheats should be there. I've been using this along with the language plugin on the English translation patch cia and it works just fine. It'll sometimes crash randomly when in My Castle, but that's a rare occurrence.

    Does it matter what version of the game you are playing? i.e. if its special edition or if its hoshido or nohr, because I have the hoshido version so I changed the folder name accordingly and my game is freezing

    also, the latest version works with the language emulation plugin unlike an older version.

    the plugin is for special edition i think
    it works with the english text translation patched japanese version of special edition as well even with all DLC included and NTR CFW Japanese Language emulation plugin.
