    I want to play around with them but I've never seen the option, though my friends R4 which I also set up has that option.

    See that hole in your wall?
    Make sure you have the latest firmware.
    Also, the R4 doesn't have cheats for all games.

    Why is everyone having problems with cheats? it isn't that hard!

    Be sure you have the cheat database in the system folder it should be called usrcheat.dat

    Check if you have the correct Game ID, by using the cheat editor program

    Be sure you have cheat.dat in system also.

    To get a cheat.dat you open up a text editor and save it as cheat.dat

    dude, i cant understand u.

    the file is named 'usrcheat' not usercheat.

    what download had xml files?

    _system_ should have a usercheat.dat which should have the correct game id and cheats. Then a cheat.dat which is blank, remember to add '.dat' to both of their name.

    and check the codes are for that game ID not for a different ID.

    if that doesn't work then your fucked.

    the file is named 'usrcheat' not usercheat.
    Right but the comments in the download that i got HERE suggested to rename it giving it an e, so i tried both

    what download had xml files?
    the one here

    _system_ should have a usercheat.dat which should have the correct game id and cheats. Then a cheat.dat which is blank, remember to add '.dat' to both of their name.
    maybe i forgot the .dat in the file name but they are both listed as dat files >_>

    well all i can say is check the game id, make sure the cheats match that exact game id and make sure you did make a blank cheat.dat by using a text editor (notepad via windows)

    iam out of ideas, if you actually DID what i suggested then i dont know what is wrong. maybe someone else can help... good luck to 'em.

    Of course it works. I've tried that myself.
