Cheat not working

Postby robj80 » Mon Apr 01, 2019 1:40 am

Phantasy Star 3 there are two cheats. One for no battles and another for infinite money. I activate them in the menu but it doesn't do anything.

If that game is for Genesis, you need to switch to the Genesis GX Plus emulator in the game settings. The default emulator (Picodrive) doesn't support cheats.

I didn't know that. It seems save states are emulator specific as well. Since when I switch the emulator my saves will not load.

Right now cheats for NES are available, but neither emulator support them yet (Native Cheats)

May be I can add that kind of support on them, it doesn't seem to be that hard.

Cheats on the TurboGrafx aren't working either. I turn them on but nothing happens. Let me know if there is anything else I should be doing.

Can we use cheats for gba games? I don't see the cheats option! I wanna use them for Pokemon FireRed.

The cheats options is shown only if there is a cheat available for that game.
Current cheats come from the libretro database, I see there is no cheat for that game there:
