In bubble2k16's emulators for the 3DS you can use cheats. They are stored in the CHX-File Format. But I found it annoying, to create these files with notepad. So I wrote this little program: The

CHX-File Creator!

In this program you Add, Edit, Delete and Sort cheats in a table, save and load your work as a CSV-File and create the CHX-File with one Click! I've put some samples in the program folder.
The program was written completly in MS Small Basic 1.2.

What if there are cheats that use two codes over and over again? For example, the Start at a specific world cheats for Super Mario Bros. for the NES:

YSAOPE + YEAOZA + PEAPYA Start on World 2
YSAOPE + YEAOZA + ZEAPYA Start on World 3
YSAOPE + YEAOZA + LEAPYA Start on World 4
YSAOPE + YEAOZA + GEAPYA Start on World 5
YSAOPE + YEAOZA + IEAPYA Start on World 6
YSAOPE + YEAOZA + TEAPYA Start on World 7
YSAOPE + YEAOZA + YEAPYA Start on World 8

Notice how the first two codes of each cheat are the same.

If there are cheats that use two codes over and over again you only need to activate them once like this:
Start On World (Part 1): YSAOPE
Start On World (Part 2): YEAOZA

Then you can activate the cheatcode with the world you want to start in like:
Start On World 2: PEAPYA
or
Start On World 3: ZEAPYA
etc.

Thank you so much! But can you fix the slow startup times?
