    I've tried everything I could think of just to get my AR cheat codes working on my GTA for my R4DS. I can play it just fine normally on the patched version of the XPA ROM, but I really want the AR codes to be enabled. From what I've gathered, I'm pretty sure the cheats don't show up on the screen (so I can't even see them) because the Game ID was changed after the patching. So can anyone tell me what the NEW GAME ID of a patched GTA XPA rom is?

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks! =)

    You can get the GameID from within the R4 Cheat Editor.

    Open it in a hex editor and read it? Not exactly sure where it is placed, but that shouldn't be too hard to figure out as you can use the other rom you used as a reference. Or google of course [​IMG].

    I know I can change it but the cheats still will not activate.
    Can you give me your ROM and cheats file please then.

    !!!NOTE!!!: This only works (as far as i know) for R4DS.

    The Game ID of XPA-patched is: YGXE d694d447

    If you ever lose this game ID here's a tutorial on how to get it:

    1. Put the patched file 'xpa-gtac-patched' somewhere you can easily find it.

    2. Now open the R4 cheat code editor, look at the top of the window and you should see a section called Tools, open it.

    3. Now select the first option 'get gameID from ROM'.

    4. Search for the patched file, select it and open it.

    5. The Game ID should be right in front of you.

    Happy cheating!!! [​IMG]

    PS:Here's the download link for R4DS cheat code editor: http://www.r4ds.cn/download/Cheat_code_editor.html , just scroll down to the end of the page and the download link should be right there. Give a Quote if you're having problems getting the cheats from your AR database to the cheat code editor, i'll be happy to help.

    But I'm pretty sure the one in the link has a section called tools...
