    My problem is that when I try to load the cheat list for any game, akaio gets stuck* rebuilding a cheat file, regardless of whether or not one exists. This happens with any game I try to load.

    *the blue fileread icon keeps flashing as the cheat file begins to rebuild, but the program eventually causes the ds to shut dot down on its own.


    Steps I've taken to troubleshoot:
    • Format SD
    • Reinstall Akaio with the newest version
    • Delete the cheats directory and add the newest cheats.xml file from gbatemp's repository
    • Delete all of the files in the cheats\CC

    Any ideas on how can I fix this?

    Use usrcheat.dat not cheats.xml (XML parsing takes AGES to parse).

    I see, thanks for your help. Is there any way that I can edit the .dat file?

    you could either text-edit it with the editor, or (recommended) use THIS

    Thanks everyone. I tried to convert a modified xml in to a dat file with the first r4 editor but it kept giving me an error, probably because the file was too big. I used the second one and it worked like a charm.

    Thanks again for your help everyone.
