    I heard Dolphin got at least a simplistic cheat system implemented which is why Windwaker was able to be patched.

    I'm just wondering how this works, and what I have to do to add cheats?

    Also is is possible to merge any save game from gamefaqs to a Dolphin memory card yet?

    Last Dolphin versions every time you tried to merge save games from gamefaqs with Dolphin memory cards, games would complain the memory card was corrupt and to format it.

    1) to add a cheatlist for a game follow this tutorial, if you have common sense it wont be hard to add cheats to a cheatlist

    step1:
    open dolphin and right click a game

    step2:
    choose edit [gameidhere].ini
    let it create the file if its not found

    step3:
    find the AR code you want to add and open gcncrypt

    step4:
    copy the AR code to the left of the gcncrypt screen and press decrypt. you should now see your code decrypted in the right screen in the following format: xxxxxxxx yyyyyyyy(for the tech guys, x = address in gc memory and y = value).

    step5:
    enter the name under the [ActionReplay] tag. it can be any name.
    under the name you copy paste the decrypted code from step 4.
    save and done.
    to activate cheats enter a + before the name


    2) i dont know if its even possible to mergi the cgi (those saves are cgi right?) with the memory card's raw data. unless there would be a gc memory card viewer i dont know off :p

    I prefer for them to make a better emulator without a cheats in the future. Correct me if I am wrong. I hope Ector and F|re will read this and give me an answer. :)

    you should place it in your patches folder. if you did correctly the emu should load it auto

    EDIT: and if it fails, post the ini here

    The 01 in the filenames is not fixed - it's the game manufacturer ID, and 01 means Nintendo. We have realized that just the 4 char game ID is not unique, however, it is when you add the manufacturer ID, which are then 5th and 6th byte of an ISO.

    That is, the patch txt is named after the full first 6 bytes of an ISO, not just the 4 first like before (the game id).

    We should provide a way in dolphin to see the full 6-char ID easily, but until then, open the iso with your favorite hex editor and look at the first 6 characters.

    OK, added ability in R31 to right click games in the game list and automatically open the right patches ini, and create if it doesn't exist.

    Elite Knight, cheats hang? Some specific cheat or in general?

    BTW, feel free to post .ini files full of tested working cheats. We can add them to the SVN.
