    I downloaded the latest cheat file (Acekard 2 Official v4.17 *Update File*) and unzipped it.

    I opened my SD, and replaced AK2menu.nds in the root, as well as put the "cheat.xml and cheat.dat" file in the "ak2/cheats" folder.

    I turned on my DS after putting the SD card back into AK2 and AK2 into the DS. I went to "DQ5", pressed start and went to cheats. It said, "No Cheats in cheat database" followed by a window.

    In that window, I pressed Y to change the cheat file to ".dat" and then pressed rebuild, but I get an error message saying it couldn't find any cheats. I did the same thing except I changed the cheat file to ".xml", and it said the same thing: it couldn't find any cheats.

    Any help would be awesome. I'm really new at this stuff.

    It has to be a clean ROM.

    How do I know if I have a clean ROM, and how do I get a clean ROM?

    Well, can't really say that here. Just search for one on a torrent site...unless it says otherwise, it should be clean.

    If I replace my ROM, will my .sav file be compatible with the new ROM?

    I'll replace it in an hour. I hope this fixes it [​IMG]

    The sav file must have the exact same name as the ROM.

    database from cheats.gbatemp.net supports only clean rom!
    so how find out yourself?

    use r4cce - add game - in between the game id and DUPE you will see a . . .
    click the . . .
    after that click DUPE
    if there is no DUPE means your rom's ID is different and 99% of the time would be a patched rom
    if there is a DUPE that means your rom'S ID is the same as our database
