    I'm little confused here about that. I know that Crackers made that GBAATM, but I have a hard time with making Link to the Past trainer for it.
    I pasted all codes, but there was no codes to select in a game when it started.
    Can somebody make a tutorial how to make a nice trainer for Four Swords/Link to the past?
    Is it possible just to make a rom without trainer but with 999 rupees all the time and infinite health?

    Is there a way to apply codes in some emulator and than to dump a rom with implemented codes?

    I am new to using GBAATM. I got cheats to list in Trainer, but when I select cheats (even just 1), I keep getting jump error... Anything I can do?

    cheats or codes that's a diffent ha
    you can you codebreaker codes or Raw codes
    when you use RAW select that in te menu down below of the program
    the settings for each gba can different to you can use slowmo V-blank screen these things
    what i see is depending on the game you must figured out on youre own how it works
    not every game is the same he..

    Here some examples


    This an RAW Action Replay code :
    6C09615B FECB5EDF

    This an CB code

    00B46AE96F25
    Both are Encrypted

    Now give you the same code but now decrypted

    AR =Action Replay : Decypted

    03000FC8 00000063 CB 33000FC8 0063

    Most of the part of GBA i'll use this codes
    CB hope you understand what i saying

    I am confused... Why do I keep getting the jump error? Is it better to use RAW codes? Where can I get them?

    I tried Codebreaker code format. Every time I try to create patched rom and load it, here is what happens:

    - Load ROM
    -Trainer Menu comes up, cheats listed
    - If I enable 1 code, or even none, game crashes when I press Start. Get the Guru Meditation screen with the unmapped address error...
