    The R4DS has a terrible cheat system with bugs in it. You need to look up R4CCE, which is a cheat file editor, and remove a bunch of games from the file. Basically remove all the ones you never play. Or switch over to YSMenu as the cheat system works fine in it.

    Did you read the 'Important notice' part on the cheat download page?

    It's a replacement firmware for the R4, it has more up to date patching techniques and a working cheat system plus some other bonus features like 3-in-1 support. If you want to try it out I recommend this thread here

    The corner in that dark alley.
    Did you rename the file to USRCHEAT.dat (CAPS not necessary)? That may be the problem...

    There's so many versions of the R4 SDHC it's hard to tell just from the name! YSMenu doesn't work on them all which is why I asked/ Honestly tho, give YSMenu a try - if it works it'll save you alot of hassle with cheats and game compatibility.

    Did you use R4YSauto? And when you told it to build the file did you select "Clone"? Do you have a box for your R4? If you do can you post the website it says to use, it's easier to identify the cart that way.

    Right, I know which one that is. YSMenu won't work on it unfortunately. [​IMG] It's the latest one that's manafactured by M3. I'm surprised about the cheat bug tho, it doesn't use the original R4 firmware or a hack of it. Try installing the firmware again but download the usrcheat.dat file from the GBAtemp cheat database. Then copy that into the folder where cheats are supposed to go, that might work.
