    Don't close this thread please, I've been trying to get CTW working on my R4 for hours and it's getting very tiresome. At least give me some pointers before closing if you must.

    I first tried the AR fix, downloaded the Cheat Code editor, created the urscheat.dat cheat, pasted in my main folder on the R4...no effing luck

    Then tried the ARM7 ARM9 patch, wouldn't let me download microsoft framework thing, downloaded the arm7 arm9 thing, downloaded dslazy, opened gta with dslazy, now what the f do I do? How do I patch this thing?

    Please help a desperate man here.

    Here's an xdelta patch that should work on all cards:
    Patchy~ http://www.sendspace.com/file/iarjbd

    Alternatively, if that one does work try this one (Won't work on Cyclo):
    Patchy2~ http://www.sendspace.com/file/qyxjon

    well just follow the instruction, and when you have done unpacking the rom, find the arm9.bin file and replace it with the modified file(click the above link to get the modified files), when you've done everything pack the files into .nds file and see if it works.


    btw
    i think you need to install YSMenu on the r4 (install this first)

    another way is just install YSmenu with R4YSauto as the replacement firmware and add the code to the USRCHEAT.DAT and put everything at your cart. link to R4YSauto topic

    i doubt m3lite has the cheat system in it, as it is an older flashcard.
    did you do it correctly the arm9 fix? replaced the original arm9 with the modified one?

    I did that, but then again MAYBE I've done it wrong. Do you have ANY type of instant messenger where you can directly help me with this?

    The YSMenu thread is way over my head... I dled ysmenu I have: _system_, TTMenu, DSmenu, r4patch, YSmenu, ttpatch, ttdldi. Do I just copy these to my card?

    Also how do I apply the patches? I dowloaded the 1st patch darkrey posted, it's a MSinfo document, ind-gtafix Rar archive, and ind-gtafix.sfv file? Wtf do I do with these?



    I swear I'm just gonna buy the game next time. [​IMG]

    lol
    from wht he said it seem that you dont need to install YSmenu on the r4
    so just skip to rom patching

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ZR1TO8SD

    1.download the file from the megaupload
    2.when the download is finished, you will have a "ind-gtafix.zip" file
    3. extract the zipped file (you know how to extract .zip file right?)
    4.when extracted you will have a folder with 3 files, "xdelta.exe" "xpa-gtac.bat" "xpa-gtac.fix"
    5. copy the Gta rom in to that folder and rename the gta rom to xpa-gtac
    6.now when you have done, Run "xpa-gtac.bat", it will generate a patched rom
    7.now copy the patched rom to your flashcard and play.

    that should work

    mhhh....
    1.backup your microsd, format it and put the backup files back on the microsd
    and see if it works

    which firmware is your r4ds on(1.18 is the latest) ?
