    Hi,

    I have a 3ds xl, running emunand 10.3 with gateway 3.5.1. On the SD card, i have my "cheats" folder containing .txt cheats such as mhx. My problem is, whenever I use new cheats on mhx, i will get a black screen. The way i install the cheat codes is I copy and paste the codes i got from here into the mhx .txt file and then save it. I then boot to emunand, press select, find the mhx game, press y, choose the cheat i want, press start and then boot into game. Afterwards, the game will then freeze with a black screen. The cheat codes I am using are ones I am creating by the mhx coder. So any ideas what I am doing wrong or can you suggest another way to create or get the cheat codes to work?

    Did you name it 0004000000155400.txt? All the ones that were in @SaagiBols thread work for me except the speed multiplier. That's the only one that I wanted the most and that's the only one that gives me a black screen. Try enabling 1 cheat at a time to see which works and which crashes your game.

    Yes the file is named that or else it would not appear on the red card after pressing Y

    Did you try using only one code at a time and progressively add more to see the source of the problem?

    Yes, I use the codes 1 at a time. The new codes I created are the ones giving me problems. I created the codes using mhx coder from the mhx save editor thread

    I think it says to use codes made with that with cybercodeapply. I don't know what that is, but I think it's something different than the Gateway cheats.

    Edit:

    It seems like the coder stuff doesn't start the same way as the regular MHX Gateway cheats. All the Gateway cheats start with D3000000 00000000 or start DD000000 00000XXX/end with D0000000 00000000 if there is a button activator. I know it's a bit of a longshot, but try adding D3000000 00000000 to the first line of your codes. That may fix it or it'll most likely do nothing.
