    I currently don't have a PC and I really wanna edit my cheat database. Games like The World Ends With You, Suikoden Tier and a bunch of others below the letter 'M' don't have cheats on them.

    What can I do? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Well you would need someone to edit yours for you or use bootcamp or something (I'm not sure because I don't have a mac) to boot windows. Note: I could be wrong.

    You're only getting the convenience of bottles, etc from buying Crossover instead of using what it's based on i.e. Wine on Linux and Darwine on Mac.

    It's legal to run Windows on Mac. The illegal part only exists if you don't buy a legal copy of Windows.

    If you're running Wine/Darwine, it's legal even without one.

    Some suggestions to run Windows-only apps on your Mac (assuming you are running Mac OS X) :

    On a PowerPC Mac :

    1- Use a virtualization software such as VirtualPC (commercial, discontinued, http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/6078 )

    On an Intel Mac :

    1- Use Bootcamp (free, http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/bootcamp.html ) to boot Windows ;
    2- Use a virtualization software such as Parallels Desktop (commercial, http://www.parallels.com/products/desktop/ ), VMware Fusion (commercial, http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/ ), Virtual Box (free, http://www.virtualbox.org/ ) or Sun xVM VirtualBox (free, http://www.sun.com/software/products/virtualbox/index.jsp ) and create a virtual machine for Windows ;
    3- Install CrossOver ( commercial, http://www.codeweavers.com/products/ ).

    I personally use Parallels Desktop which allows me to run Windows virtualized or to boot it normally via Bootcamp. I only use it to run the classic C&C Red Alert 2 though... [​IMG]
    Having said that, I would probably opt for VMware Fusion as it does seem to have a better support for 3D and require less CPU/RAM.

    Alternatively, try searching for Nintendo related material for Mac on these software repositories/trackers:

    1- I Use This ( http://osx.iusethis.com/ )
    2- Version Tracker ( http://www.versiontracker.com/ )
    3- MacUpdate ( http://www.macupdate.com/ )

    A quick random search found emulators, DLDI patching, CycloDS apps, utils to use Wii remotes on your Mac, ROM managers, game clones, music and picture sharing from Mac to Wii, etc. Maybe you'll find something for you.

    By the way, if you have your Mac connected to the internet (other than through the Airport card), you can share your connection with the DS by following these steps:

    just wonder if you are using r4! it could be the reason you don't see codes from M onwards~!
    using r4cce to remove all those unnecesary games that you don't play might help

    it would be better you try yasumenu
