    Okay so, I don't know exactly how to explain this since I'm pretty new at this kinda stuff.... so please bear with me.

    I've been trying to get a certain plugin to work for Mario Kart 7 but I just can't get it to work. Whenever I press X+Y to load the menu in-game it never shows "Game Plugins" at the bottom of the list and yes I've done everything right.
    My SD card looks like : SD>Plugin>"Title Id">cheat.plg I have the latest version of the plugin, and the latest version of NTR so I just don't get why it won't work.

    If it helps my firmware version is 11.2, I'm on an o3DS and, I'm trying to load the plugin on a physical copy of the game.

    Any help would be appreciated :)

    Some game plugins use Select and not X+Y. Look at where you found the cheat and re-read how to activate it.

    Just re-read, it says to "Press x+y in Mario Kart 7, select Game Plugin and press A"

    Does the screen flash green when launching the game? If not, the cheat plugin isn't being loaded in the first place. The following may be the cause:

    - Does the title ID of your plugin folder match the exact region of your game? Cheat plugins and their folders are region-specific.
    - Are you using BootNTR Selector to boot into NTR? If so, check which file path setting is active. Setting #2 has the plugin folder in /3ds/ rather than in root.

    It does flash green.
    The title ID does match the exact region of my game.
    I am using BootNTR Selector, and I'm using default settings
