    Did you make sure to create a plugins folder on your SD card?

    like plugin/TITLEID/cheat.plg?

    Some plugins doesn't have a cheat menu. They use button combinations

    I tried games that do have in-game-menu stated and no cheats appear within the ntr-menu, and yes i did everything correctly with the files. example mario 3d land USA says in game menu yet nothing is there!

    A lot of recent plugins are opened with the select button in-game, so try that

    otherwise, try contact the person who made the cheat.plg

    Tried Super Mario 3d Land USA from here http://ntrplugins.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Plugins
    Says has menu but i don't see any menu.
    Also tried Castlevania Mirror of Fate USA, i know it says it has no menu, but no trigger button cheats work anyways. Same with Luigi's Manson New Moon USA.

    OK, for super Mario 3D land, the codes are for the "second item", the item in the circle on the bottom screen. you HAVE to an item for it to work....

    Button_D = Dpad

    BUTTON_SELECT + BUTTON_DRight: Mushroom
    BUTTON_SELECT + BUTTON_DLeft: Fire Flower
    BUTTON_SELECT + BUTTON_DUp: Raccoon Leaf
    BUTTON_SELECT + BUTTON_DDown: Stone Raccoon Leaf
    BUTTON_SELECT + BUTTON_R: Boomerang flower
    BUTTON_SELECT + BUTTON_L: P-Wing (that takes you to the goal)

    i looked into the link it posted, but idk why it says there's a menu when according to the included source there's not?

    just to make sure. you did have an item in that circle on the bottom screen right? cuz that how i was testing the codes....
    once you activate the codes you tap on the item on the bottom screen...
    sadly, its not an instant change....

    the only reason i was able to figure it out was because i look at the code structure and work from that, from the source there, it was writing multiple codes to the same address, so i figure it must the "holding item" address, since if you're familiar with super Mario world 3d land for wiiu, its very similiar.

    and yes i agree, its difficult when there's no readme on how to use the plugin.
