    I want to give myself some more promotion items in Fire Emblem. I've found the hexadecimal data and I've figured out how to enable cheats on gPSP.

    You can find the hexadecimal codes for this game here:

    FE 6 cheats

    Now in the gPSP readme it says that every code should be 16 characters, split up in groups of 8. So like:
    AAAAAAAA BBBBBBBB

    But when I read that topic all the cheats are in this format:
    AAAAAAAA BBBB

    I don't get it, I've tried several things but it just doesn't work out.
    I basically just want to give Merlinus (8300) these items:
    5f - Hero Crest
    60 - Knight Crest
    63 - Guiding Ring (2 times)

    Could anyone help me out?

    AAAAAAAA BBBBBBBB is a 32 bit value
    AAAAAAAA BBBB is a 16 bit value.

    So, you would just use AAAAAAAA 0000BBBB.

    Okay, makes sense. I've tried replacing the code to AAAAAAAA 0000BBBB, but it still won't work. Whenever I activate them in gPSP nothing changes. I must still do something wrong, and frankly, I don't have any clue what.
    Could somebody maybe compose a code for me? You can find all the things needed in my first post, would help me so much!

    I finally figured it out myself. I just copied my .sav file from my PSP to my PC, there I booted up and started VBA and I inserted the cheats I needed there, via the Codebreaker menu.
    I saved (via the normal way, NO SAVESTATES), and I again transferred that .sav file to my PSP. Now it works! Merlinus has 3 new promotion items, awesome!
    These are the cheats I used in VBA:

    3202ADD6 005f
    3202ADD7 0002
    3202ADD8 0060
    3202ADD9 0002
    3202ADDA 0063
    3202ADDB 0002

    00003CC7 000A
    1009C180 0007
