    Hi, I'm new here.

    Erm, I've downloaded this file: 06_09_09_All.zip From you guys. Inside are several cheat files, rather, .dat files which are meant to be used for cheating. I've replaced my CHEAT.DAT file in the system folder of my R4 with the one from that database folder, but it only contained cheats for just a few games on my card. The same for the USERCHEAT.DAT file. I read that it contained updated cheats for about 1000 DS games? I may be wrong here, but I could have sworn I read that. So I'm sitting here wondering what I've done wrong, or why the files aren't working right. I'm mainly looking to use cheats for a lot of games (but mostly Pokemon Platinum), which is why I downloaded that first .zip file. Can anyone help me?

    I'm using version 1.18 for the R4, if that helps any.

    Read the ceat thread, R4 users need to change the cheat file or simply get the YSmenu.

    Are you using YSMenu, or made changes to your .dat file?

    I hate to ask this, because it's all pretty sad on my part. I downloaded everything I was instructed to to get YSMenu up and running, and I followed the instructions to the letter. On my R4, really, I found no changes. I'm probably doing something wrong, even though I followed precise instructions. So I'm thinking, perhaps someone would be so kind as to prepare the YSMenu for me? Like, all the files and such in one folder, ready for me to just drop the folder/files into my R4. Please?

    Edit: Is it this one you're linking me to? http://www.r4li.com/download/r4_v1.21_kernel.html

    Edit2: Oh my! I guess that was the one. xD It seems to load up just about every cheat for the games I have on my card. Awesome. Though, it's a little wierd, I get a little lag within the menu.

    Um, just what kind of update is that? A lot of the time, when I go to the Games directory, it just freezes up.

    I apologize for the multiple posts, but I thought those people who use version 1.18 firmware, and would like a very simple solution to using Pokemon Platinum cheats, would be interested in this. I found this post at another forum, after having done a quick Google search on how to use PP cheats on an R4 with a firmware version of 1.18, and ran into this: http://www.r4ds-forums.com/viewtopic.php?f...p;t=3204#p19324

    The download has cheats for other games, including Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. But more importantly, it has GREAT codes for Platinum. [​IMG]

    ok follow this steps as R4 have a problem.they only show some of the cheats."Note:if your cheat.dat have lots of game like the one the r4 put in for you,open r4cce and copy any random game into it and overwrite save the cheat.dat so that you will have a clean cheat.dat in ur microsd and then start following this steps"

    1st:open 2 r4cce
    2nd:the first r4cce,you open ur cheat.dat from ur microsd
    3rd:the other r4cce you open the cheat.dat you downloaded from the database
    4th:find the game cheats you need and right click on them and select copy
    5th:next,paste them on the 1st r4cce with the cheat.dat you open from ur microsd
    6th:save your cheat.dat and overwrite ur cheat.dat in ur microsd
