The program is actually VBA. Its included inside it.

1 - Basically, you look for values, like for HP. You look again, once you know they have changed. Look again to make sure. once only 1 or 2 are displayed, Thats the value youre looking for then.

You'd only need to freeze it to be invincible, or increase it to like 9999 to be resistant, especially in new games. Easy, really.

2 - For values wich arent numbered, like like bars, its a similar process, expect you look for values wich decrease and increase.

start a search, play and get life lower, search for values that decreased, too many, get hit again, look for decreased, once you have a full bar of life, look for values that increased, and continue till you fall right on the value you were looking for. Freeze it: youre invincible.

# How can I use the cheat search function?
The cheat search can only be used to search and modify values in the RAM areas, i.e., you can change your number of lives, money and life bar and you can freeze the value to get "infinite" result.

To use it, enter the cheat search dialog and start a new search (or reset any previous search). If you have 5 lives, select equal on the comparison type, make sure Specific value is selected, click on entered value, type 5 on the value to search and then click search. This will find all locations where the number 5 is present.

Return to the game and lose a life. Once you lost a life, go back to the search dialog, click on less than compare type, select old value and click on search. This will search the previous found locations for values less then the previous value. You should now be able to identify the location that contains the number of lives. You can write it down and change its value by selecting it and clicking on add cheat button. If there are still too many options, continue loosing a life and refining the search.

Some cheats will require you to use a different size for the data. For example, life bars are usually represented in 16 bits. Number of lifes is usually 8-bits. Score is usually represented in 32 bits.

Depending on the game, it is possible that values are kept in BCD format (Binary Coded Decimal), so you may need to do all the searches in hex instead of decimal format.

Cheats are saved with the emulator save states and can also be disabled.

# Where do I enter cheat codes?
Under the Cheats menu, go to the Cheat List... option. This will bring up the list of cheats and it will let you add new codes, remove and disable codes.

# Why some cheats never work?
Cheats are very dependant on the game where they were hacked. For example, a Japanese version will most likely have a different address for the number of lives than the English version.

If you are using the import Code file function, it will try to make sure that the codes are for the correct game and warn you if not. This is only true for GameboyAdvance code files.

Also, GamesharkAdvance (and CodeBreaker) Must be On codes enable the emulator to tell if the game being emulated is the same as the game used to hack the codes and it will warn the user if not.

NOTE: not all codes supported by the cheat devices are supported by the emulator.

# What are the different add cheat options?
For Gameboy:

* Gameshark: adds a Gameshark code. Format is XXYYAAAA
* GameGenie: adds a GameGenie code. Format is XXX-XXX, XXX-XXX-XX

For Gameboy Advance:

* cheat: adds a cheat described by address, value and size
* cheat code: a string version of a cheat in the format XXXXXXXX:YYYYYYYY where XXXXXXXX is the address and YYYYYYYY is the value (length of YYYYYYYY determines the length of the write - YY means 8 bit, YYYY means 16-bit and YYYYYYYY means 32-bit)
* Gameshark: adds a Gameshark Advance code. Format is XXXXXXXXYYYYYYYY
* CodeBreaker: adds a CodeBreaker Advance code. Format is XXXXXXXX YYYY

# CodeBreaker codes don't work!
CodeBreaker codes have a separate encryption for every game, so you need to input the Must Be On codes in order to have them properly decoded by the emulator.

# What about Xploder or Action Replay codes?
Xploder is the European version of CodeBreaker. Just enter the codes as CodeBreaker codes and it will work.

Action Replay is the European version of the Gameshark. Codes are usually listed in 8 character pieces. Just enter every two codes together as a Gameshark code.

# What about GSA V3 codes or AR V3 codes?
GSA V3 codes are just like Codebreaker codes and can be entered as either Gameshark or Codebreaker codes.

AR V3 can be entered in 8 character blocks with a space or newline separating them.

AR V1/V2 should be entered in 16 character blocks, so just join every two 8 character blocks.
