    I'm not sure. I was just told to use r4cce

    https://gyazo.com/40645266f6dbe6b1bcedcdcfc1a817f0


    This is what I see in my SD card for my acekard2i:

    https://gyazo.com/39cbd8a6ea363703e2fd7676ad55877d

    When I open cheats.xml I can add the game and code but when I try to save it it crashes near the end.

    I'm not really sure how this works, but when loading cheat.dat it shows this:

    https://gyazo.com/ef714028da1e58a6022065960a215b0b


    this is what shows up when I load the cheat.xml file:

    https://gyazo.com/ad7a2601609f746bfabdcc2b86ef6815


    I want to add the instant message code,quick screen change, pokemon center animation cut, gauge bar animation cut, and HM cutscene animation cut. Just for an example I tried adding the first one. Instant message code:

    https://gyazo.com/3058fb99be150977fc474c8fcca7fa8e


    I go to file> save> a blue bar on the bottom fills up, it takes awhile when there's about a quarter left and then it just shows a spinning blue circle. If I click on the program it just says not responding and then I have no choice but to close it.


    Sorry for the long post just wanted to make sure I posted as much info as possible.

    No problem with being verbatim.

    I'll try this later and see if I run into the same problem. You might try making a new cheats.xml, though.

    How do I make a new one? is there a fresh one with cheats already on it I can download?

    I assume File > New, but I haven't used the tool in a while.

    For the codes you want, I doubt it, but if it continues to not work for you and works for me, I'll send the XML file to you.

    I tried it again and it's still crashing. If possible can you try adding these codes for me then for storm silver? I want:

    Instant Message Code

    Quick Screen Change

    Pokémon Center Animation Cut

    Gauge Bar Animation Cut


    HM Animation Cut


    Rematch Trainers


    for my game it's: Storm Silver – Complete: IPGE D5D82CBF


    I would like all the other cheats from my original cheats.xml file intact though as well. A lot of the cheats I want work for vanilla soul silver but they just don't come up as an option for storm silver for me.

    Also I think I figured out that you don't need to set buttons to activate the cheat, I guess that's just an option/for some cheats?

    Incase you forgot the link here's where the cheats are: https://guidepokemon.com/2018/09/pokemon-sacred-gold-storm-silver-action-replay-codes.html

    I was unable to get the cheats onto (the latest version of) the cheat file, but I did make this cheat file containing the cheats you requested. I also discovered that you can open two windows of r4cce, and just copy & paste sets of code between two files. So, just open the database and copy the games you want over to the one I made. It would be much more space-efficient to do so, too.

    It's zipped because GBATemp dislikes XML files, apparently.

    thanks. Does this have cheats for all the other DS games to?

    No, but like I said, the XML file you already have can have its content copied from one window of r4cce to the other.

    or could I just make a backup of my old cheat.xml, move it, and then move the one you gave me over onto my acekard if I need it for that specific game?

    yes. https://gyazo.com/30bf844cd0e2fb29d4facb580685604b

    the left is my original cheats.xml. the one on the right is the one you gave me. Notice the size difference. I just moved mine over to somewhere else and put yours in my cheats folder on the acekard but it still shows cheats for all my games but not an option for storm silver.

    Try moving all of the other cheat files over with the backup. I'm not too familiar with the Acekard software, but I'm assuming it can read the file.

    I tried moving all of my cheats over and hit "save" to the cheats.xml you made me but then it hangs and then says this: https://gyazo.com/bb4890f3993d750116cd7f03f0887a3b

    When I tried hitting "save as" instead I got this message: https://gyazo.com/81c0f91e50f1164dc9f8c2ce6ed2c3af

    can you try moving all my cheats to the XML file you made for me and then sending it back maybe? I don't really know how this site works for sharing files so I just put my orgiinal cheats.xml on google drive:

    What I meant was, move the cheats of the games that you have over to the file.

    For example, if you have Mario Kart DS and Pokémon Black 2, you'd copy the cheats for those games from the large database over to the new file I gave to you.

    Ok I think I may have figured out the issue. The game version was different lol. mine was 1.1 and the cheat version was 1.05. This may be a dumb question but is 1.05 higher than 1.1? I want to make sure I have the latest version. From what iv'e googled I think 1.1 might be an update made by someone else.

    By math standards, 1.1 is more than 1.05
