    Is it possible to use Action Replay codes, not the actual hardware, on the flashcart? And if so, how?

    Probably answered before, but gave a quick "skim" on the wiki page on AKAIO, didn't find anything.

    Wait, do you mean using cheat codes on the roms stored on the flashcart? Yes that's entirely possible, all flashcarts support it.

    Or do you mean using your flashcart AS an action replay for your retail games? Because there's a homebrew called nitrohax that does just that, although I've heard it won't work on Acekard.

    Well, kind of a mix.

    Can I use action replay codes as R4 type codes, using a kind of converter or homebrew?

    Or just use the action replay codes directly on the cheats like a normal .DAT folder

    I know, it does. But Action Replay has cheats that GBATemp cheat database doesn't have yet, so I'd like to use some of those.

    I know how to use it, but I need to know if Action Replay codes would WORK on the normal cheat codes that run on flashcarts?

    Yes, they're all the exact same thing.

    And that's why it was a stupid question.

    Thanks.

    Small note that cheats.gbatemp.net is not the latest Cheat DB. cheats.gbatemp.net/Temp moderated by elixirdream is updated and filled with hundreds of new codes. This Cheat DB can also be updated straight from the AKAIO WiFi Menu.
