    I have a collection of .cht files and the thing doesn't recognize them. Darkchan's site only says that the thing supports cheats, it says nothing of how. Anyone have any ideas?

    Yeah, I got that far. But like I said, the iplayer doesn't recognize the .cht files that I got from gbatemp's cheat database. Should I be using another file-type that I'm not aware of?

    EDIT: Figured it out. CHT files DO work but for some reason it doesn't work in the default folder in the emulator files. I created a new folder in the root of my micro sd card and put all the .cht files there and they were recognized then.

    Thanks anyway, how_do_i_do_that.

    That is because there is a character limit on the entire path + name of the file.

    That's really odd that the character path exceeded the limit for the default location.

    Seems as though I spoke too soon though; the .cht files are recognized but don't show any cheats once you load them.

    Yeah, so still having the same problem.

    I can indeed find and 'load' the .cht files, but once they're loaded all the cheat options say 'no cheat loaded'.

    I've tried renaming the files to be the same as the gba files, I've tried creating .clt files from Visual Boy Advance and those aren't even recognized. Has anyone ever got the cheat function working or did darkchan just say it was in there but never implemented it?
