Alrighty..... I'm trying to use cheats on Mario Kart DS, using an Acekard2i in an NDS Phat (v4 firmware in the DS) using AKAIO 1.5 with the 12th of December 2009 loaders. I'm using the bigass cheats database found on GBAtemp, but this problem also happens using the default AKAIO cheats database. I've also tried all the DMA modes, toggling patches etc. Steps to reproduce: Go to system options Enable cheats (any other patches make no difference here) Go to Mario Kart DS ROM (Game Code:AMCP) Click on 'Cheats' Activate ANY cheats Save with Select Launch game! When using any DMA mode, it will always freeze at the 'Loading' screen, and never gets beyond that point. Also, the on light on my DS usually flashes when this happens. Any ideas? I'm getting annoyed at not being able to access the dev tracks And since my transferred save complains of corruption, I can't use the cheats to unlock everything again either... Thanks in advance! P.S. When cheats work, how much longer does it take to load the game? P.P.S. When using AMCE (Aus version, took 3 hours to rip ) same thing happens.
