Hello,
I am trying to use cheat files with Edizon for the first time but I appear to be having some difficulty. I placed my cheat file (Pokemon Shield 1.3.1) file in the Sd\Atmosphere\contents\01008db008c2c000\cheats\dbddd13845acd2bd.txt and, since placing that file there, I cannot boot into the game. It just hangs at the Nintendo Switch screen after selecting the game. When I remove the title id folder, I am then once again able to boot the game but with no cheats... No clue what is happening.

I have the most up to date Atmosphere and the snapshot version of edizon, latest 11.0.1 firmware

I'm wondering if perhaps I didn't set up Edizon correctly? I downloaded the latest version from https://github.com/WerWolv/EdiZon/releases and brought the edizon.nro file into SD Root\Switch and can load it successfully when the default folders are inside SD Root\Atmosphere\contents\ but, as soon as I move my game's TitleID folder in there, game over. Game doesn't load. Did I miss a step? Is there something I have to do with the ovlEdiZon.ovl file?\

Note: I've also noticed that, in the SD Card\Atmosphere\contents\ folder, there are a few titleID folders in there which extracted with atmosphere, inside each is an "exefs.nsp" file. Are these necessary? Should I try deleting them?

Edit: Nevermind, thanks to the assistance of WerWolv, I managed to get it going. You can close this thread.

Thanks but isn't this just to get the cheats downloaded to the SD Card? They don't work if I can't launch the game itself

its gonna load the proper file for the proper tittle

if the cheat file doesn't match the title_id it crashes the game

it's worth a try, trust me I've had the same problem

I should've elaborated what I meant. Look at the EdiZon github page here: https://github.com/WerWolv/EdiZon

"For the best experience, open the /atmosphere/system_settings.ini file and change dmnt_cheats_enabled_by_default = u8!0x1 to dmnt_cheats_enabled_by_default = u8!0x0."

In new versions of atmosphere, you need to copy that file from the config_templates folder to the config folder.
