    I'm trying to use the Arceus Event cheat with my Pokemon Pearl on M3 DS Real, I have the Cheat Switch on Always on.

    It says to press L and R when entering any Pokemart, I've tried pressing them at many different times, even holding them down.. but there's no man in green to talk to once I enter.

    Has anyone else managed to get this to work>?

    What do you mean? Press Select instead of L and R before going into a Pokemart?

    Yes, I have Mystery Gift in the screen where you load your game. I'm quite at a loss to why it's still not working.

    Well, I'm not sure, I'm just going by the precompiled cheats in the latest cheat.db.

    I did just try pressing it in the spots suggested, still no luck.


    Edit : I've done some experimenting, it would seem it's not necessarily exclusive to the Event Cheats, some cheats work.. but most noticably the Button Input Dependant cheats do not...

    I'm using V4.3a X firmware with my M3 Real, and the latest unofficial 27th march Cheat.db if it's relevant.

    Over there -->
    try using a cheat editor, i know Yasu made one, but you have to go get it yourself
    (I'm not being mean, but if we post direct links, Yasu gets mad and I am pretty sure stops making updates in that language)
    and then take out the button input part, tends to be the first line and looks something simialr to this:
    91300000 FFFB0000
    (front part may be a little different and if it is L+R, end will be different too, that one is for select)

    if that doesnt help, change firmware, worked for me [​IMG]

    Gaia, thanks, I'll try that out later and post back to say if it worked.

    Also just incase, where can I get a different firmware other than the latest? And what one did the cheat work with you?

    Thanks
