    I've googled so much and tried many different settings but it seems I can't get any ntr plugins to work
    I've got an EUR o3ds with Luma3DS as CFW and arm9loaderhax installed, I'm on latest version too.


    1) I've downloaded some plugins from this thread, copied them to the root card of my SD correctly (plugin folder etc.)
    2) I've installed BootNTR Selector
    3) I've tried to make plugins work both with 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4 version of NTR CFW

    The best result I could get was in 3.2, I entered the menu (x+y), enabled debugger mode, started game (Nintendo Badge Arcade e.g.), opened the menu (x+y) at start, activated cheat(s), tried countless times to actually benefit from a cheat (pressing the correct inputs L+left, L+up etc.) but nothing happened, ever.

    On versions 3.3 and 3.4, I can't even get the menu to open with x+y

    Am I missing some crucial set ups, programs?

    EDIT: not a plugin region problem, I'm only using EUR ones

    those badge aracde cheats had stop working even before they make the plugin
    it won't work even if you try it one million times
    and read the instructions how to use those plugins

    I've also tried with other games... let me ask this straight
    1) Shall I use 3.2, 3.3 or 3.4? (if 3.3 or 3.4, how do I access the menu?)
    2) With "intructions" do you mean the .txt you can find sometimes in the .zip file, which only tells you how to input the cheat? If so, I've already tried to push the stuff asked, such as L+UP etc.

    Thanks for the NBA info, I'll just stick with GYTB for the badges

    When you're using a plugin, if you have the green flash but no game plugin entry in the ntr menu, Press Select in game as it should be said on the first post, the readme etc...

    The fact is, there always is the green flash before game loading, I can access the menu and the cheats are detected, I activate them but they do not work.. :(

    Well sometimes that happens.

    Try to check the following:
    - If the cheat have a pre requisite
    - If you have the good region of the cheat
    - If you have the good version of the game (update)

    If so, the cheats might just be unworking.
