Troubleshooting

If you're having trouble getting these cheats to work, look at the following possibilities.

  • Make sure you have the latest version of FCEUX. These cheats should be compatible with versions above 2.0.0, but to be sure, you should use the latest version.
  • Make sure you extracted the cheats into the proper folder. To do this, navigate to .\FCEUX\cheats folder and you should see numerous files with a .cht extension.
  • Verify your FCEUX cheat path matches where you put unzipped the cheats. You can check by clicking on the Config menu, then Directories,. The default cheat folder is ".\cheats".
  • Remember, not all games have cheats yet. If there isn't a .cht file for your ROM, you can either check this Wiki for the game, or request cheats.
  • The .cht file must have the EXACT same name as your ROM file. If your ROMs aren't named using the standard NES naming convention, you will have to rename either the ROM, or the .cht file. The cht files use the most popular ROM naming conventions. For example, if you are using a ROM named Contra (U) [h1].nes, you must manually rename the cheat file to Contra (U) [h1].cht.
