    Hello. I recently installed YSMenu on my original R4DS so I could play newer games that won't work in the default firmware. Anyways, I was wondering in what directory do I place the cheat.dat in for the YSMenu firmware.

    WRONG!

    YSMenu uses USRCHEAT.DAT not CHEAT.DAT.
    So you need to go download USRCHEAT.DAT from cheats.gbatemp.net.
    Unzip it.
    Put the USRCHEAT.DAT in your TTMenu folder.

    Actually, my YSMenu uses the cheats in the _system_ folder.

    YSMenu doesn't have a _system_ folder. If you build it correctly you should only have a TTMenu folder and a _DS_MENU.dat file. The USRCHEAT.dat goes in the TTMENU folder as previously stated.

    I just did this last night. Changed operating firmware and installed cheats. Followed the sticky guide above - all the information is in there.

    It would be a good idea to get UsrCheatUp.nds v2.6 To get cheats straight from your ds.
