The CycloDS doesn't ask me to activate cheats when running the game?

There are three possible reasons for this:

  • Cheats are disabled on the CycloDS menu
  • The CycloDS doesn't have cheats for the game you are trying to play
  • You have the new GUI and need to activate it using the menu

Cheats are disabled on the CycloDS menu

  1. Make sure the CycloDS Evolution is in slot 1 and turn your Nintendo DS on
  2. Select CycloDS Evolution from the menu if you don't have auto-boot enabled
  3. Touch the far-right menu option (Settings)
  4. Make sure cheats are enabled

The CycloDS doesn't have cheats for the game you are trying to play

If you are still encountering problems, then it is likely that the CycloDS Evo can't find any cheats on your microSD for the game you are trying to run.

  1. Search the Internet for the AR codes you would like to use
  2. Download EvoTools 1.0 BETA2 from this page
  3. Install EvoTools and add the cheat codes to a new file named user.evoCheats, then save this file to the CycloDS folder on your microSD card
  4. Try running the game again, and the cheats should be detected

You have the new GUI and need to activate it using the menu

  1. Highlight the game you want to set cheats for
  2. Tap the menu in the bottom-left of the screen (or press Y)
  3. Select 'Cheats' from the menu
  4. Activate the cheats you want, and then save your changes
  5. Try running the game again, and the cheats should start working

I can't find the codes I want on Google, or any other website!

The answer is to make your own codes. Please share them with others once you've confirmed that they are working, so that others that want to do something similar don't have to spend time making the codes themselves.

I recommend you read this fantastic guide by Curley5959.
