This is no longer supported, consider using CTRPF with Action Replay support instead of using a converter.
With it you can simply load your text files with cheats.




Hi guys ! :)

Today I present to you the Gateshark2NTR.

Prefer using the NTR Plugin Manager to convert your codes, it's easier to use. ;)

What is this ?
Well as the name say it this little piece of soft will allows you to "convert" a Gateshark's cheats text file in a plugin usable with NTR.

How to use it ?
This soft is almost full automatic so it should be easy to use.
You just need to give the file to the soft and it'll start the plugin creation.
3 ways to pass the file:
  1. Drag & Drop the file on the soft's icon
  2. Launch the soft and a window will appear to select the file
  3. Pass the file as an argument through a shell
What do I need to use this ?
  1. DevKitPRO, Install this and be sure to add "c:\devkitPro\msys\bin" to the PATH Environment Variable
  2. You also need to have the VCRedist 2015 installed.
This soft support all the codes used by gateway and even more.

LOG Type
Format: LOG0X00Y ZZZZZZZZ
Description: This code will create an entry in the logger. See below for further details.
Config
The soft can use a config file in order to set some preference:
#builder_name: Nanquitas;
#name_auto: 1;
#folder_auto: 1;
#log: 0;
#debug: 1;
List of options and their meaning:
#builder_name: Will permit you to enter the name that will be used by the converter automatically for the splash menu;
#name_auto: Set to 1 by default. If disabled the soft will ask you to enter a name for the resulting file;
#folder_auto: Set to 1 by default, if the name of the input file is recognized as a titleID, the program will automatically create the folder tree like: plugin --> ID folder --> plugin.plg.
#log: Set to 0 by default. Create a traceback file with various info. Mainly used to debug the program.
#debug: Set to 0 by default. If activated, the plugin will have the Debug Menu enabled. This menu can be shown with L + Start and shows various infos. This menu also have a logger.
Log infos:
This code can only be effective if you compiled the plugin in a debug mode. Else it'll have no effect.
More infos on the logger and the log code:
LOG0X00Y ZZZZZZZZ
X = Type
Y = Mode
ZZZZZZZZZ = Value

Type:
  1. INFO -> Color green
  2. WARNING -> Color orange
  3. DEBUG -> Color grey
  4. ERROR -> Color red

The ERROR type also have the particularity to shows the debug Menu on it's own right when an error's log is thrown. Basically that's mean that if you set an error log, every time that the log is thrown, the debug menu will pause the game and be shown.


Mode:
  1. Print value as text
  2. Print the value stocked at ZZZZZZZZ: "*(0x12345678): 11111111"
  3. Print the address and value stocked as Z: "*(0x12345678): *(11111111): 22222222"
  4. Print the value stocked in offset register
  5. Print the value stocked in data register
  6. Print the sum of offset + Z
Spoiler
As you know my menu can have spoiler to tidy up the menu.
So you can organize the menu with some spoiler.
[++Spoiler text++]//<-- Will open a spoiler
[--]//<-- Will close a spoiler
You can open a spoiler inside another spoiler but only for "two level":
[cheats]
[+Spoiler+]
->cheats
->[+Spoiler inside Spoiler+]
--->[cheats]
->[+a second spoiler inside the first one+]
--->[cheats]
You can't do:
[cheats]
[+Spoiler+]
->cheats
->[+Spoiler inside Spoiler+]
--->[cheats]
--->[+a spoiler inside the second one which is himself in the first one+]
----->[cheats]
Doing the second option will only create another spoiler below the second.

I'm sure you got it right ?
As you can see, I used '\n'.
This mean go to the next line. By using it twice, I can jump a line.
It's the only format character supported by my function.
The plugins made with this soft have a custom menu.
So to show the menu, you don't have to x + y and go in the game plugin section, but just press select ingame.
Then you can change the hotkey by pressing Start.

I think I covered all the functions, if I forgot something I'll edit. :P

Oh yeah, a last point: the plugins made with this soft disable the online functionalities but the local multiplayer is still available.

Thanks
Of course this soft wouldn't exist without a lot of people so I address my sincere thanks to:
  • @cell9 for the CFW NTR
  • @chronoss for being the main beta tester. He did a really great job, and many of improvement are here because of him
  • a lot of people all over the web, particularly people helping in the 3DS Scene. Indeed, I'm not a pro programmer, and I learned "on the go" by trying and testing. But I also read a lot of github code, which was really interesting and instructive. It's always good to see how people do things to have as many possibilities as possible. So a big thanks to them.
  • I probably forgot some people, so I add them later. :P
Troubleshoot
  • If when you start the program you have this error:
    The program can't start because VCRUNTIME140.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
    then install the VCRedist 2015 I linked higher.
Update
03/08/16 (V. 1.0.1)
  • Bug correction
07/08/16 (V. 1.1)
  • Add Mask support for 16 bits conditionals codes (thanks to @itsRyan for noticing it)
  • Add value truncation for the (wrong) writes codes, avoid warnings on compilation

Ah okay, maybe because it's a new software.

Sorry for you mate.

It's fine, I disable my anti virus when I use the program. x3

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

Avast is one of the worst antiviruses. Just because it's a brand new tool by a un trusted developer (from it's database) it will set off a red flag.

I've been on Avast for years and it's done a damn good job actually.
