    New to nintendo ds lite but have r4ds
    followed instructions to run cheats but games still just run as normal.
    what I have done so far.

    downloaded bugfix and ran against file
    downloaded cheats
    removed the system file
    download the new menu_ds file with patch applied to ds lite
    added cheats onto ds lite as cheats.dat
    but games just run as normal
    then tried other cheat file usrcheats after removing other cheat file.
    but still games just run as normal without the option for cheats.

    I must be missing something..... any help please.. as new to the games.

    I haven't seen a cheat yet that won't work without the "bugfix" thing.
    My recommendation: Use default 1.18 firmware from
    Make sure you're using the specific cheat.dat file and not one of the others:
    Unzip it in the _system_ folder and once done you should be able to press Y when you have the game highlighted in order to access the cheat menu.
