Button Activated Cheats Not Working

Postby Xbel » Sun Mar 30, 2014 9:47 am

I'm playing Pokemon Platinum (US). I made sure cheats were ensembled and have successfully used cheats that do not require in game activation. However, I'm trying to use the "All Items Codes (SELECT+UP)" for Poffins and Battle Items. I tried just Poffins first, then just Battle items.

When I go back to the game I press select (X) then up on the keypad but the only thing that happens is select opens my bag (as per normal) and up moves up. I've tried pressing them at the same time without results as well. My Poffin case is the same as is my battle items section.

Am I missing something? Because I really don't want to make my own Poffins... It's annoying as all get out.

Thanks in advance! :)

Alright, I'm a bit confused about your button mappings. You do realize that X and Select are two separate buttons on the DS, right?

On a side note, I've been having an odd issue with the "Move Anywhere" code in both Pokémon Platinum and Heart Gold. The button combos (R+B to enable, L+B to disable) work, but they only take effect after entering/exiting a building. This contrasts with DeSmuME, where the effects trigger immediately on activation.

If you want to use a cheat where you have to press SELECT and UP simultaneously, you need to enable the option 'Always show Start and Select button'.

And... That was my problem. I assumed "x" was select because there was no select button and when you enter the menu it says to press "x" to select. Glad it was a silly mistake on my part. This makes for an easy fix.

Much abliged. =D

On DraStic r2.5.0.3a, running on Xperia Xz Premium, and fully updated system, I cannot activate many button activated codes.

As an example, Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks (EU Version). I seem to be able to activate codes like All Treasures x99 without issue. When I try to use codes like Walk through Walls, Moonjump, Faster Train, etc. They do not work properly. In order to use them, I have to do a screen change in order to activate/deactivate the code. i.e. Opening the map screen/menu tab. These codes seem to work fine using desmume on PC (occasionally I have issues with Walk through Walls. That's it) with the exact same codes and roms. Not sure what's going on.
