Why don't Action Replay/Gameshark codes work on my Zelda Oracle ga

    For US members, AR for GBC = Gameshark in the States.

    OK, so I've got a bunch of codes and they don't work on these two games.

    I live in the UK and so have a UK cartridge, but to my knowledge - unlike GBA games - there is no difference between US and UK carts. And my UK copy of Link's Awakening works fine.

    I had to create the directory on the AR for the game codes BTW, as the Oracle games weren't in there. Dunno if that makes any difference...

    I only bought the AR for these three Zelda games. HALP!

    The games are different (the Euro releases are twice the size for the oracle of games) and the binary could well have changed making the cheats not work.

    However there is CCCGP (which works for roms and given both the GBA and DS feature decent emulators):

    And In should ask whether the cheats work in an emulator.

    Thanks, I'm not sure if that will solve my problem though.

    Am I right in saying that this will convert the codes to work on Euro versions of the games? It's real cartridges, not emulations.

    Something Ive wondered about a long time ago

    the gameshark (actual retail everything, no roms or anything) codes would only work for one of the oracle games (I forgot which one)
