Is it possible to convert codebreaker cheats?
Due to engine differences not all codes will work when converted, some that require buttons can't be used given the RAW engine doesn't use any form of conditionals for that sort of deal. You can't make assembly based writes using the RAW engine either, which means all the fancy stuff like walk through walls, or some of the multiplier based codes, etc. will not work at all. Only super basic things like "Infinite Lives" are things that would work. I already have my bases covered with all the different code engines out there and of course the RAW engine.

I have actually been establishing databases for each corresponding engine as we speak, I've been creating cheats and adding them to each of them, anything that's possible WILL be there in the corresponding databases. I can utilize my knowledge and my new direction on the project to make this magic happen faster and more optimally. The public WILL be given something they should have gotten a long time ago, just like my NDS cheat databases, you WILL get quality content from me, you WILL get the best of the best if I can offer it, slacking and half assing isn't my middle name nor part of my vocabulary, unless of course I am calling something out for what it is. The journey will be long, but I will make it worth the wait, if you guys and gals have some patience, this will work out quite nicely. I am so excited about it that my stomach feels funny (maybe I am just hungry, who the hell knows, either way it feels funny lol).

I've been following this thread for a while, and I'd like to know if you've gotten to Pokémon Pinball Ruby & Sapphire in the GBA database; I'd be extremely grateful to have a more comprehensive cheat list than is available by default.

I haven't hit that title yet, I've got numerous titles to go, but don't worry, it will come!

Y'know, four hands are better than two (I'm assuming you have two hands, of course). Is there anything I or anyone else can do to help you get through things faster? I'd be more than happy to take a chunk of work off your hands if you ever need it, just DM me if you wanna discuss it. It's been years and there's been no concerted effort like this to make EZ-Flash cheats more accessible, which has frustrated me to no end, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels that way.

At any rate, keep it in mind, and either way good luck and keep up the good work, pal :D

Thank you, I very much appreciate this. I will definitely keep that in mind! Right now I am trying to wrap up for my 2.5.0 release for the Nintendo DS, which will allow me to of course prepare for 2.6.0, but give me more time to focus on the GBA aspect of things for a little bit.

I don't exactly know how to say this, so please try to understand.

A couple situations sprang up not to long ago regarding a couple other projects I've been working on alongside this one, not so good situations might I add, let's just say a couple people are pretty much trying to take everything I've done for the respective projects right out from under me by using whatever I talk about to essentially reverse my own work for their own gain and glory, I haven't said anything on how or what to do in regards to those of course, I haven't exactly figured out how either given one reason, that reason being, when it comes to projects like this, I tend to develop and learn in my own way, I don't exactly read guides and what not for this sort of stuff, so I can't exactly just tell you how to do it given it's my personal methodology that backs my ability to do things like this, while I initially wanted to give some sort of explanation on some of these projects, I was advised by quite a few individuals that I should keep my personal ideas and methods to myself given some are purely out to get information for the wrong reasons (no this isn't towards you specifically either, I'm talking in general). I don't actually have a guide or a "tell how" with stuff like this though because most if not all that I know is self understanding and learning in my own way. If I can figure out a way to explain certain things without throwing my hard work out the door, then I don't mind sharing an answer. You also have to remember that I'm dealing with multiple titles for the GBA, it's not exactly simple to just make cheats, clean cheats, and call it a day, especially when I have a life outside of my hobbies, while it may seem like it's taking forever, all I request is a bit of patience, I'm not a miracle worker after all lol.

@Gozaburo so I'm not able to properly reply because of the link in your comment lol but
Yea I've learned its only one-line armax codes converted to raw (at least that's what seems to work for me with MegaMan battle network 3) personally I'm not sure if there is a way to include multi-line codes but after a few hours i manged to figure out which one line codes work lol from how it's seeming it's def gonna take a good community effort here to get this rolling which I'm willing to help with as much as possible lol im gonna go back through those emerald codes cause a few don't work because of them being multi-line I'm pretty sure, once I get home if I'm able I'll post up the current .cht file I made and works for mmbn3 blue lol

Multi-line codes aren't really the problem. The real problem is the fact that the cheat system is very limited like I said before.
I already converted a code with 17 lines and it worked perfectly for me. Maybe the code which you want to enter is wrong or the system can't handle it. If you need a certain code for a game you can post your game and its associated code and I'll try to give you the code.

Some progress on the GBA side of things, while I introduced the idea I had a while ago, I actually have come up with a small starting base to work with to get something out there sooner than later. This will give everyone a chance to play with cheat codes that work whilst giving me time to fine tune anything and add more to it as time goes on. Already got a nice list done for the database, if all goes well, you may see something sometime this year (seems broad of a range I know, but given so many games need to be redone, I need some type of flexibility here). If everything goes well, it may be out and about much sooner.

I'm definitely looking forward to your compilation. There are some codes that I converted myself and they don't work for some reason.

I know I'm not the one you made this offer to, but would you be willing to help me with a specific game?

I'm trying to build a CHT file for Golden Sun.

[No Random Encounters]

[Level Up Quickly]

If you could try to help with these three codes, I'd be incredibly grateful. I've been reading about code conversion, but I don't really understand it yet.

These codes aren't "action replay codes". Action replay codes always have 2x8 letters/numbers (XXXXXXXX YYYYYYYY)
These codes which you gave me are "codebreaker codes" which look like (XXXXXXXX YYYY or XXXXXXXXYYYY).
The system only accepts converted action replay codes.

At least I found EXP codes for all character but I didn't test them. Hopefully they work!

Just want to thank you again for your hard work. You're awesome. By the way is there anyone currently working on replacing the cheat engine on EZ Flash Omega? That would make things so much easier for consumers. I am not a programmer though so I have no idea how feasible replacing the cheat engine would actually be. It does seem like that would be a much better solution to the problem.

Keep up the good work bro. :D

Already working up a new database for the flash device as well as the GBA in general.

@DeadSkullzJr You should really consider putting this up on GitHub so that people can contribute cheats for you. May make the majority of the legwork easier. I mentioned before, with different ROM versions like Fire Red/Leaf Green having 1.0/1.1 versions as well as different versions for different regions, it may be much easier to let the public do all of the heavy lifting, as far as tested/converted cheat contributions go. Setting it up on GitHub would probably get tons of low-key/obscure games and their cheats onto the database. Just a thought.

Part of the reason it's taking a while is because I've not only been converting codes, I have actually remade and or improved some of the existing ones, and I have gone as far as to make my own for the databases, which isn't something that can be done quickly. My primary focus of course is to provide a base to work with before I start really talking off with creating even more cheats to add to it, because that's when things really start taking a big turn with the time needed. I will say that I've also reordered the game list for the database.

Yeah, I imagine the whole thing is gargantuan for a single person. Definitely going to get a lot of appreciation from the GBA community. I posted a link to this thread on Reddit to try and get it a little more recognition. Getting this cheat database to a more usable state would make a lot of people happy and maybe help the EZ-Flash Omega's cheats on the same level of accessibility as the Everdrive's.
