    Feel free to bitch slap me but I can't seem to find an answer to this question. I use GBAExpLoader on my DS and all the games run fine, but is there a way to use cheat codes on GBA games?

    I don't think there is, not through the GBAEploader anyway.

    Bitch-slap not required for such a sensible question.

    There's that old GABSharkY tool that a subset of Game Shark codes worked on which basically patches the codes into the ROM.

    I think you have to patch them or something. Not really sure though.

    If you wanted to get items or something in Pokemon or the like, I guess you could do your cheating in Visualboy and just copy the save file over to the EZ Flash or whatever!

    You can insert custom trainers into the rom or use VBA to save a cheated game and write it to your card. Other than that, no way sadly. It'd be a cool feature for a future loader to implement. Maybe it could read a Cheat file and load it with the GBA rom.

    In all honesty though, it's probably better without it. I've gotten much better at games without the temptation of cheats and it's more rewarding knowing you accomplished something without them! [​IMG]

    The M3 Real with GBA Expansion Pak allows you to use cheats. You just have to have the relevant cheat file on the memory card and select it. They are in the form of CHT files and it should be a separate file for each game.
