Why does my R4 only recognize certain games?

    I use the r4cce for my code purposes but for some reason it won't work with certain games.
    I know newer games are compatible because I've got codes for Dragon quest IX, however some games simply will not appear no matter what I do.

    Some examples are Pokemon SS, Monster Rancher DS, phantasy star 0, and mario kart.
    None of these games will show a cheat option even though I've made sure the game numbers were correct with the r4cce.

    Any idea on what I could be doing wrong?

    "Game numbers" being the CRC?

    Eternia!
    It's the R4 itself. It has a very buggy cheat system. What kind of R4 do you have? Use Wood if you can..

    The 'Game Numbers' are most likely the game ID numbers...

    In all the time I was running on 1.18 my cheats all worked, every game aslong as I put the correct game ID in and correct cheat data to go with that game ID. And even with Wood it's working, can you upload your cheat file onto a site so I can have a look, or take a couple of screenshots.

    I've used the "..." feature in the program to highlight the nds file and find the game ID numbers that way.
    As to the Rf card type i use. I have the one from the gba temp shop.
    This one
    By the way it is 1.18

    I don't mind uploading my cheat.dat to a site but I don't make it a habit of uploading files so i don't know where I would begin to go to upload that.

    Use Wood R4. It's a better firmware in every way.
