    Hack: Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow (U) +4 Trainer
    Source: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=571
    Problem: I tried using the "bspatch" and the "bsdiff" exes to patch the hack, but for some reason it pulls up a DOS screen that rapidly closes again.
    Can someone give more detailed information on how to use/employ this hack? I have no clue what I am doing.

    Thanks.

    Google command lines or something.

    Command lines for what? Can you be more descriptive?
    If you mean for DOS, then I don't know how that will help being that the DOS routine automatically closes before I can do anything.

    If you're on winxp then Start button, Run and put cmd in the box and hit ok. You'll then have a command line to run the stuff from.

    But it didn't give any information about command lines.
    I searched "Command Lines" on google but couldn't find any relevant information.

    I am really completely lost here, can't anyone help me?

    If you follow the instructions I posted above it will open a command line box. Then read here to find out how to use it.

    http://www.computerhope.com/msdos.htm

    That will give you all the basics necessary to achieve what you're trying to do.

    Okay I have looked over the site several times over and still cannot figure out what the hell to do!

    I found this bit of information during searching: http://www.m3wiki.com/index.php?title=NDS_trainers

    I tried exactly that and it says "'bspatch' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

    I still am completely lost. Doesn't ANYONE know what to do?

    You need to navigate to the folder with all the patcher files before you run the command.

    No one is kind enough to offer a bit of relevant knowledge?

    To me, it almost sounds like you should be dragging and dropping the nds file itself onto the exe. Just a guess, though.

    cheat database here.

    http://cheats.gbatemp.net/

    after you download it put it into your memory card for wherever your flash drive reads it from and you can now activate the cheat.

    Which is exactly what the cheat database is designed for, you can't stick a memory card in a retail cart.
