    Ok, if you can't get the cheat code button to work on your R4, this is how to activate it!

    1. Connect small card to pc.


    2.Then, transport the essential files to your desktop.

    Over there.
    There's a few of these topics, and therefore this thread can be rendered useless. I hate to sound like a mod when I'm not, but try using a search function the next time you post a topic. Otherwise, good job. [​IMG]

    I would lock this topic if I was a mod.

    Hmm, interesting, but I don't think the file system has something to do with it...

    It doesn't. I keep my microSD card formatted as FAT so that I can use FATsort on it, and the cheats work just fine.

    No offense... But:


    Seriously, this thread was a bit unnecessary.

    Grimalkin's Cheat Database is the best though. You might as well have just said replace the Cheat.DAT file on your MicroSD with Grimalkin's.
