Anyone got Chrono Trigger DS to work on DSTT?

Apparently it corrupts your memory card forcing you to format and lose all your game data.

What version of firmware are you using ?

The latest one is V1.16.

Don't use 1.16, it has bad consequences on clone/fake DSTT's and only has 1 japan rom fix anyway.

To run CronoTrigger on DSTT you need to apply a cheat code crack. I have uploaded you a up to date usercheat.dat file, just replace the one that is in the TTmenu directory.

Then enable cheats for chronotrigger, highlight the game, touch the 'plus +' sign or press 'select', set cheats to on, open the cheats tab (top of main screen) tick the crack cheat to on, then hit the save icon. Now the rom should be fine but you might have to start a new save file.

Thanks mate, I haven't actually started to play it yet, can I use the normal US unpatched ROM with that?

It's great that they decided to re-make this awesome game! One of the best RPGs ever made.

Yes it will only work with an unpatched rom, just enable the crack in the cheats and save them before you start playing.

Btw for anyone else the cheat file I posted works on many carts.

Game seemed to be OK on my R4, but then got to the bit where you go in a kind-of vortex (about 5-10mins in), and it's stuck on the screen of the warp zone! It's not frozen, but just not getting past it...

I think the cheat fixes that too but I might be wrong.

here's cheat file that should work fine on the r4 with the fix, though I think you can also use the one I posted earlier too.

just put the cheat.dat in the _system_ folder, delete/backup/overwrite the old one.

Btw meangreenie does that usercheat.dat file for DSTT have cheats just for Chrono Trigger or most other games as well? I'm asking because I have one already although it's old. I hope this game is as good as people have said it is.

LOM, you might as well download a more up to date usercheat file, so you have cheats for more recent games as well.

Can you point me to the most recent - didn't realise these covered more than one game. And so do I just replace the cheat file in the system folder?

Thanks Abvance - repped!

Yeah covers a load of games if you get the right one, search for an updated one at GBAtemp site, sorry I'm at work now so can't check for you. Yes, just replace the usercheat.dat file, cheers for the rep.

Hadn't even heard of it but a google search throws up loads of sites discussing problems associated with it - lol - But even if that's just a coincidence, why would I want to buy a new cart when a simple software fix on my existing one will do..? :?

Yep, DSTT still works fine, don't listen to him!

guys can i ask a question? trying to load a new sd card with games for my wee fella and dstt card is showing a red menu with question mark. have tried reloading but getting nowhere, help

Just applied the latest cheat file but same problem - argghhh!

Forum chat suggests "download cheat file from Here and put it in the _system_ folder on your memory card then when you start your game up go to the cheat menu and enable the anti-piracy cheat..."

But I can't find any cheat menu on the game when I start it. Any suggestions??

EDIT: Just tried it again and see the 'Cheats' button on startup. He was taking it past that last time without me seeing!

There should be a cheat menu in R4 before you start the game, haven't actually used R4, and you did replace the usercheat.dat in the Menu folder?

Might be best to do that, use Panasonic SD formatter, also v1.17 is the latest.

heck r4 is even worse!
the problems on ak2 were a bad batch of production ages ago which were easily swapped out for replacements and are no longer an issue.
dstt has fake problems, contact problems, and is just very weak.
r4 is outdated with many fakes, never updated and if you got a sdhc 'version' its not even connected its a cloned cash in.

none of this is needed for ak2

The formatter doesn't give you an option if you've downloaded the correct one.
I hope you haven't got a cloned card, otherwise you will be back to the thread in a day or two asking how to fix it because all you have is a white screen.

:-D Yep, given up for now as he is frustrated and has turned on Animal Crossing. I'll get back to this later and try the various options. It's a pain though as you've got to go through the game to that point every time just to find it doesn't work again. No wonder he's given up!

[QUOTE=thesaint;4841722]The formatter doesn't give you an option if you've downloaded the correct one.
thanks for the advice actually went back to your original guide and did the format and its working fine now had a wee blonde moment!
