    Since not many people know how to make their own NDS cheatfiles in txt format for individual games, here is an example.
    using any text editor and enter data in this format:


    Game ID: ABCD 12345678

    [code name1]
    code1

    [code name 2]
    code 2

    [end]

    then save the text file with any name you like

    Note: the 1st line is the game id of the game, it could be enter as
    Game ID: ABCD 12345678
    or
    Game ID: ABCD
    or just
    :ABCD

    Nice work man.

    I didn't know .txt files would work this easy, it was taking ages to create .xml files...

    I'm rather surprised that no one maintains an up-to-date cheat database.

    I followed your instruction but it only work for the first code I put in. Other codes does not appear on code selection screen. Is there any separator I need to put between code?

    as u can see in the example, separate each code with brackets [ ]
    sometimes the last code on the list might not show up on the list, add something at the end of the file

    like

    I do ;p


    At any rate, theres a limit to the size of the cheat file. I believe its 3-4 megs before the cheats stop working or start acting screwy. So its great for a few games but not for a ton of games basically.

    i dont have a game ID because its a GBA game (pkmn fire red) and GBA games don't have game IDs or i don't know how to find out what it is. Thanks for taking a look.
    ps: I use brackets when i make the text document, but i used parentheses here because i wasn't sure how to make bracketed words with out the site thinking i was trying to use bb code.

    'Twas certainly a curious 'statement' coming from a not so n00bish member, but this board is frustratingly choc-a-bloc full of them [​IMG]
