    [​IMG] SCDS2 SFC EMU .CHT Format
    Working Cheats!
    [​IMG]

    While the entire Flash Kit scene has been discussing the SFC/SNES cheat functionality of the SCDS2's SFC EMU, the GBATemp community has solved the problem. Early this morning with the help of Rydian and SixtySixHundred the format for SFC EMU .CHT cheat file has been discovered. A query to Team SuperCard generated some basic information and a useful file that got us started. Team SuperCard stated that the SFC EMU uses snes9x cheat codes and that .CHT files should be made using the EMUCheat software. This method caused a few problems, of which I am still hoping can be resolved when more guides and help emerge. Until that time Rydian has provided for us a sample .CHT file which is confirmed working by SixtySixHundred, and the formatting below.

    Keen-eyed users will note that the formatting resembles a SCDS2 GBA EMU .CHT file. It is starting to look like Team SC simply copied the code over and made some minor adjustments for the SFC emulation. We can not blame them for this but it did make finding a working .CHT template rather confusing.

    Please feel free to discuss this accomplishment in the news thread, but post all .CHT related comments and discussions in the On-going Discussion thread linked below.

    Let us all get to work and start converting a collection of working SFC .CHT cheat codes!

    all of the relevant information exists in the 1st post. why not try doing the work to figure out your own answers?

    nicely figured out! it would be easy to add the codes if it follows snes9x but even better it could have been if you could add the codes from within the emu but i guess the DS aint powerful enuf

    Respect to Rydian for taking the time to actually work out the cheat format. I found a specific bug while testing the .cht files though.

    If you're running a ROM with cheats active, then go to change those active cheats, the DS will freeze, causing a restart. Not so much of a problem, but when you restart the ROM, then activate some cheats, the Emulator refuses to apply any of the cheats until you've replaced (or possibly just remaned) the .cht file on your SD card. It's very annoying!
    I'll report the bug to the SC team in a while when I've registered at the forums, if anyone else would like to confirm the bug? Just to be 100% sure..

    i've had some cheat reselection freeze the emu. but it doesn't happen for all cheats. like on the original test file i can turn on/off the item box cheats all day long. but as soon as i select a power-up cheat the emu freezes. in fact turning on any power-up cheat does not echo that choice in the game. i also can not get the high score cheat to work, i turn it on and nothing happens. i haven't tried renaming or replacing anything when it happens. to be honest the emu freezes A LOT and writing the review supplement has been a real pain. the thing is just buggy at this point. it is a port of snes9x and i'm not having these problems on the pc emu, so whatever they did to get it running on the scds2 has caused instabilities.

    I'm sorry to bump this topic again, but my problem is the following:
    I have made a .cht for Secret of Mana (german version), but the game doesn't matter. The problem is, that neither NDSSFC, BAGSFC nor CATSFC will display Cheats with more than one "Address,Value" combination.
