    The hell is wrong here?? I cant use any cheats they are all grey and I cant toggle any of them on. I heard that 1.18 update screwed this up so I went ahead and downgraded my R4's firmware to 1.13 and guess what same thing. I changed it to 1.11 1.10 and it STILL will not work. Then I thought that something was wrong with my Micro so I backed up all of my files to my comp, formated my SD and then put all of the files back up and it still will not work. [​IMG] Whats wrong here? Did the new firmware do something to my card? Am I doing something wrong? Or is this the R4 teams doing? Its bad enough that most new games wont work, but now I cant even use cheats on games that DO work. This is like a kick to the face. Please help!

    Have you ticked the box Cheat Enable?? In the cheat section thing when you press y?? Depends if you are using usrcheat.dat or just cheat.dat?? If usrcheat, thats your problem, so try the ordinary cheat.dat!!

    Let me know how it goes!! [​IMG]

    Hey I'm not stupid. Of course I've tried everything. I think that when I used that new firmware it permanently screwed with my R4 chip.

    The firmware should not effect the chip in the R4 at all. It's just a loader.

    When you update the firmware, be sure to delete the old _DS_MENU.SYS. That file is re-created when you boot the new firmware. Not deleting it when updating the firmware can cause weird things to happen.

    Cheats seem to be working fine on my R4, and I'm using 1.18.

    I already made sure that my _DS_MENU.SYS was erased.

    I'm havening the same problem on my other Micro SD also.

    Do you have 'cheat enable' AND 'game enable' checked?

    I tried that like when it first came out. It still will not work. I wouldn't have posted this if I hadn't done everything.

    There's only one folder that they go into. And instead of smarting off to people who try to help you, why don't you answer they're questions when they ask you.

    What the hell? I did answer you. And I thank you people for helping me. Dont try and act like your the word around here.

    I put USERCHEAT.DAT in _SYSTEM_. AKA its respectable folder.

    Did you also put cheat.dat in _system_? usrcheat may not work without cheat.dat
