    So, i was going the the CHEAT.DAT file to clear it up for my R4 so more cheats would appear and i noticed the character mod codes for EBA (E). I have EBA (U) and there aren't any mod codes. so, if its possible to convert code regions (which it should be) how do you do it? if i just copy-paste the codes into the (U) versions codelist, would that work? or if anything, i'll just DL the (E) version of the game and if they're named the same, the SAV file should still work, right? (well thats what happened with my GAWC (J) to (U) version anyway, the sav still worked from (J) to (U))

    to cut it short, i want the (E) chracter mod codes on the (U) version of the game. I want to do this myself so everyones favourite moogle doesn't have to and so i can help out in a way.

    I'm going to try the (U) to (E) swap but i still want to convert the codes just in case this doesn't work

    sometimes cheats for U work for E (or vice versa)
    sometimes u can just swap regions and rename the save
    sometimes both work
    sometimes none work

    so.. just try [​IMG]

    8BitWalugi,
    if you really want to convert cheats...then just learn how to make some cheats
    after learning how to... with the basic you can then proceed to convert it yourself

    like polle123 pointed out
    if you are lucky.. you don't need to do anything
    if you are bad luck.. you need to change the address
    the tougher one would require the help of a debugger
