    I was wondering if anyone here can help. I updated my cheat.dat file from the link on this site. After I reached level 8 in the game there is no longer a cheat available. I use it for unlimited lives so I don't have to start over when I keep screwing up.

    I opened the cheat.dat file with an editor and it shows cheats there, but they no longer show on my menu.

    Other games still show their cheats however.

    The only other thing I've done lately is install DSTwitter.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

    First time discussing the topic, eh?

    Anyway, are you using the original R4 or an R4 clone?

    Honestly theres no reason to use the unlimited lives code when you can get your 99 lives on level 2-4 with the turtle.....

    I'm using an R4 original.

    I didn't know about the turtle so I'll try that out later.

    I've tried removing a few hundred cheats out of the games out of the cheat.dat file but it still doesn't show them for the game.
    I'm going to delete DSTwitter later today and try that next.

    It's just strange how it was there for more than 2 years and now it isn't but all the others are.

    Thanks for the help thus far everyone, its appreciated.
