    Some cards take one, some cards take the other. Some take either. Download and use whichever one works best on your card.

    Possibly, but it would be easier to just download the updated cheat.dat from the CheatCode Database.

    Also, knowing what card you have would go a long way to helping sort your problem out.

    If you Have an R4 or M3 just use Either CHEAT.DAT or USRCHEAT.DAT, same thing, 'cept that the Size of the Files are different. USRCHEAT.DAT is Faster to download because of its Smaller size than USRCHEAT.DAT...Up to you.

    I don't mean to sound like a dick, but... You like post whoring don't you?
    You seem to respond to a lot of problems that have already been solved, giving the same advice as someone who responded an hour before you.

    Eh? Could you explain that?
    I must agree, you seem to post like, in *EVERY* thread that is pretty much already answered. Almost 200 posts in 1 month..?

    Well... CHEAT.DAT is 5.23 MBs
    While USRCHEAT.DAT is 1.59 MBs

    It'll be faster to download USRCHEAT.DAT than CHEAT.DAT
    USRCHEAT.DAT takes me 20 seconds to download, while CHEAT.DAT takes a minute.
