    If the cheats don't show up then you most likely used the wrong cheat file.

    could you maybe tell me what to click on in the gbaatm menu? or direct me to the "right" cheat file?

    Would be cool if you could use Cheats on the CycloDS or Acekard 2i like you could in M3 Sakura.

    problem free cheating on a GEP is limited to having EZ-Flash V line or the M3 line of products. Everyone else with any other combination is SOL with hard patching roms with cheats.

    It is better in this case to have a real GBA flashcart that supports cheats, etc for this purpose.
