    I have Nitrohax .92 on my Acekard 2, and I downloaded "cheats.xml" from the temporary GBA Temp Cheat DB. But Nitrohax never loads. Any help?

    The cheat file needs to be less than 3 megabytes large.
    Use the updated cheat editor (check out filetrip.net) to modify it ti trim out all the games except the one(s) you want.

    Why would you need to use Nitrohax? The Acekard has built in cheats.

    In order to use cheats on a retail cart.

    Wow, only 3 MBs? The cheats.xml files all are over15 MB. Oh well...

    The DS only has 4 megs of RAM.
    Just make a couple XML files for sets of games. It's not like you have every single game.

    ... right?

    You just need to keep the games you have, and even if you have about 100 (which I'd consider a rather high amount of games) and kept all the cheats for all of them, you'd still have a file small enough. Remember the 15MB file has all 3 regions of each game, and loads of crappy games you won't own.
