There are alots of cheats that I don't need and want to add my own cheats. Is there a software that can open and edit the cheat.db file for M3?

I use R4CCE to edit the dat. While it will save a db file, it won't open it for whatever reason. Just use this file (click here) and open the USRCHEAT.dat in the download in my sig, edit out the games you don't care about, select "save as".....in the drop down box, select db file to save as and save it as the cheat.db file. You should be good after that.

Hope that helps ya!

I was using the Cheat Code Editor and it couldn't save as .db files. Now, this one works wonderfully!!! Thanks alot!

Hmm, i have the same problem, except i tried out what rayder suggested and haven't had any luck.
I save my cheat.dat(which has the same content as usrcheat.dat) as chat.db replacing the old one in the flash rom(btw, it does let me save as cheat.db, but it says "*.dat" in the box), but when i go to the game's cheat page, it says that there are no cheats for the said game. I checked and the game ID is what it should be(AVPC), and i only added one code(Max luck, which i converted from the us version to 01211F45 0000E4A9).
Btw, i als tried to save the codes as a text file, tried to activate them but the one i wanted doesn't work at all, and the moon jump works weird...

for xml, you have to enter , those kind of stuff every time?

if you only use cheats on certain games (like only a few out of the 2000+ games out there), the most easiest way is to use *.dht files, the downside is that it's 1 file per game.

example:
[Max luck]
01211F45 0000E4A9

that's all you need, and not all AR codes work on the M3 REAL right now, if you see an AR code that has this in it DC000000 0000xxxx, it's mostly not gonna work until they fix it in future firmwares

R4CCE 1.0 has a bug, it doesn't save the hole file (and then cannot open the resulting file as it's corrupted).

V1.01 is good, and offer the ability to check GameID

I used this to put moogle cheat on my custom made FFCC undub -_^

edit : Ah, sorry it was for .dat, not .db
V1.01 is .dat only

none of the R4CCE versions can edit *.db files
*.dht , and now *.txt is the best way to go when making and editing your own custom cheats
