If you're having trouble getting these cheats to work, check the following:

  • cxNES doesn't support auto-loading cheat files, so you must manually load them every time you start a new game.
  • Some cheats don't take effect until after you restart your ROM.
  • Use the latest version of cxNES. The cheats should be compatible with every version after v0.3.3.
  • Remember, not all games have cheats yet. If there isn't an .cht file for your game, you can either check this Wiki to see if the game has been added since the last package, or request cheats.
