So, I have a R4i Gold 3DS, and I've been wanting to use some cheats (a guy can only get so far on his 13498 pokemon game and not get the dex filled up), and so I looked around for it. All I could find were outdated lists (circa 2012 or something) and since this is a specific forum for R4 cards, I want to ask: is there a database that is still being maintained?

If not, is there one where I can begin on and slowly add to it as I play more games? What should I use to do such a thing?

Thanks. :)

I use the one Retro Gamer Fan uploads with his YSMenu DAT update. Works fine on the R4 in wood:

I'm sorry, can you please ellaborate on what that is? First time I'm hearing about it. :)

And if you wanted to make your own cheat DB, "R4CCE" was the tool to use back when the DS flashcart scene was hot stuff, as far as I know it still is. http://hp.vector.co.jp/authors/VA013928/soft_en.html

Does it use regular AR codes, or does it have a special format?

Thanks to the both of you. :)

Looking through that first link, one of the folders contains the usrcheats.dat file that you're looking for. That's where the cheat files are stored, most all flashcarts should be able to read that these days. Where it goes on your microSD is going to be dependent on the cart though.

R4CCE, yes, it uses standard AR code format and compiles them into most common output formats (.dat, a raw .txt was another one, not sure what else there was). It also should be able to edit the usrcheats.dat from the aforementioned link.

Thanks, since I have a R4i Gold 3DS they're kind enough to have a folder saying Cheats, so, unless I'm being trolled, it must be the place haha. I took a look, damn, that's a huge list, seems to be mostly complete. Tried looking for a newer game (the last Phantasy Star 0) and there were codes even for that there already! I'm glad some people still are doing rounds and keeping stuff up to date. :D A big thank you to you Gyron and Sicklyboy, you were both a huge help. :)

    @Xzi Thanks for the feedback! I'm planing to make alot more music for each of the levels, so it don't get so repetitive! And working on some graphical upgrade ideas!

    Do you use 8bit equipment for the music and FL studio
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    I did notice one particularly bad bit of text formatting (and minor typo): in the UFO fight, when trying to shoot at the bottom, it says "Looks like the UFO have some kinda shield" - "has" is better. Also, the very next text box has "L et's try shooting the top instead!" with a line break in the word "Let's".

    @kenenthk I used OpenMPT to make all the music. My brother will be helping out with some more tunes in the future!
  • KimKong @ KimKong:
    @RichardTheKing Thank you so much for pointing out that dialog bug!! I never noticed it while finishing up these new boss fights..

    And that gap on that level should be close enough to jump if you run? I might have to lower that platform a bit maybe?

    Thanks so much for the feedback!! You are awesome!!
