I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me. I'm stuck in a point in the game where I need to use the L button, which is broken beyond hope. I've even opened it up to clean out the dust. So as a workaround, I want to use the walk-through-walls cheat.

I'm using R4 Wood. Forewarning, I'm a total nub.
It's only when pressing X to configure cheats for Chrono Trigger that the system freezes. Any other game, cheats works like a breeze.

I've tried:
- Enabling cheats in-game in both gen settings and individual rom.
- Making sure the patched rom Game ID matches that of usrcheat.dat's.
- Making sure there weren't too many codes... Stupid, I know. But I've had instances where I couldn't even load the cheat file in the editor because the file was too large.
- Waiting for the DS to un-freeze. ...LOLNOPE.

Considered:
- It's patched, but could AP be blocking me from using cheats? In which case, should I try the anti-piracy bypass code...? I don't think I should, since I have a prepatched rom...
- Throwing my DS violently against the wall.
- It can't just be because one of the codes is faulty, right? That'd be silly.

Yes, I do believe I need help. Please feel free to do so.
I've searched, and the only really similar threads had no answer.

Title: All in a day's work.
Is the cheat file corrupt? Or maybe the file system is getting fragmented, and the programming that reads the cheat file may not support fragmented file reads.

So a couple of suggestions to try:

  • Defragment the storage medium (I'm guessing SD?)
  • Format the storage medium and include only the ROM, cheat file, and maybe save file.
  • Validate the cheat file is in a good state.
  • Create a new cheat file containing only the cheat you are interested in.
  • This one is obvious but ... look for firmware updates or updated patches for the ROM.
