Troubleshooting

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

  • The .cht file must have the EXACT same name as your ROM file. The NES Hacker Wiki uses the No-Intro ROM naming convention. For example, if your ROM is named something like Contra (U) [h1].nes, you must rename it to Contra (USA).nes. Thankfully, there are auditing tools that can do this for you.
  • 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".
  • Use the latest version of FCEUX, although these cheats should be compatible with version 2.0.0 and up.
  • Remember, not all games have cheats yet. If there isn't a .cht file for your ROM, you can either check this Wiki to see if the game has been added since the last package, or request cheats.
