    Just to start off, I'm really not sure if this is even in the right forum, but here goes nothing.

    I've been playing Ragnarok DS lately and I'm having a problem getting a certain AR code to work on it. I'm not surprised it's not working though, the code I have is for the japanese version and I've been playing an english patched rom. I'm guessing it would be possible to make a code for the patched rom, but would anybody know how to do that and would be willing to help?

    I used an unmodified Ragnarok DS (J) rom that I found and patched it with the latest english patch on this website: Ragnarok DS Translation.

    Here's the code I was trying to use, but doesn't seem to work at all on the patched rom.

    Increase JOB experience rate
    02095470 47084900
    02095474 02000051
    E2000050 00000018
    980069A1 0xx01C27
    46C01808 47084900
    02095479 E1A00000
    -Replace xx = 04 (2x) / 08 (4x) / 0C (8x) / 10 (16x) / 14 (32x) / 18 (64x) / 1C (128x) / 20 (256x) -Replace xx = 04(2x)/08(4x)/0C(8x)/10(16x)/14(32x)/18(64x)/1C(128x)/20(256x)

    Obviously I can't provide links for the roms (you'd have to find them yourself), but is there anybody that could help use this code to make a working one for the patched rom?

    u would have to recreate the code for patched ROM as the addresses might have changed and what flashcard are you using ?
    people generally only create codes for a clean ROM (Exeption to Soma Bringer)

    The flashcard I'm using is an Acekard 2i

    Edit: Ok, I just got curious about something, so I decided to test it. That AR code that I first posted, I just tried using it on the original unpatched rom, and it doesn't work at all. It could be my flashcard, but I kinda doubt that because a similar code for increasing BASE experience rate works on both the patched and unpatched roms.

    Here's the working code for BASE experience:

    Increase BASE experience rate
    020952A8 47004800
    020952AC 02000031
    E2000030 00000018
    1C2E6968 19C00xxF
    46C06168 47004800
    020952B1 46C046C0
    -Replace xx = 07(2x)/0B(4x)/0F(8x)/13(16x)/17(32x)/1B(64x)/1F(128x)/23(256x)

    yeah, that makes sense and is very possible. i already fixed the game ID, but that code won't work. i have no idea how to fix it though, i found the code on some website

    maybe.if there is more than 1 rom for ragnarok,(like, a different dump group) try using a different rom. that has happened to me before on many other games,and i find that some roms work better than others. maybe search around some more for a better cheat, or go to the gbatemp cheat forum and request it.
