    i finaly got the codes to work, i was puting the dat file in the wrong directory. but now, when i load the codes on pokemon pearl it gives me all the JAP codes even though im using a US rom. i tried using the code editor to just get only US codes, but when put cheats.dat in the edge directory the code option doesnt appear when i load the game. it seems it only loads the official dat file i got online and not the ones i make! can someon help me?

    ps. i cant find the usrcheats.dat in rayders sig. i go to the link but its not on the list. only gifs and jpegs.

    thanks

    Are you sure your using a verified clean dump of the USA release? I just checked the codes on my flashcard and they are working alright. Either it a problem with the game you have or a bug/glitch in your flashcard.

    well i tried using a new rom. they both said US in the name. whats a "clean" rom. i know you cant ask for roms here but if you tell me what a clean rom is ill go out and find one. by the way both roms i got were made by Legacy, though they were different sizes. dont know if that makes a difference. hope its not a glitch in my flashcard, although im getting a dstt next week.

    All games (roms) are identified by the gameid inside the game (rom). If your flashcart only detects the (J) codes then it's very obvious that you're using a (J) rom. There's no other reason for it.

    A clean rom is a dumped untampered rom.

    well heres the thing. ive played the rom and it is NOT in Japanese. the way i know the codes are JAP codes is the fact that ive looked up codes for pokemon diamond and pearl and the codes i found on codejunkies.com for JAP are identical to the codes i found on my edge. and two even if i haddent checked, there arecodes in the US action repay codes which you cannot find on codejunkies.com and in the US version, on the pokemon modifier and some of the other codes use L+R to bring up items that you get rid of a certain number to get what you want. in the US version it gives you masterballs, in he JAP version it gives you Heartscales. on the codes im getting its showing up as Heartscales so it MUST be JAP or at leased some other Region than US.

    Are you using the codes on the database Narin is maintaining?

    ...I don't think anything is wrong with the rom you have...
