Cheats not showing/working

trying to use cheats on citra nightly 1896 but the usual button for cheats isnt showing in the emulation tab

  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows 11
  • CPU: 11th Gen intel Core i3-1115G4 @ 3.00GHz
  • GPU: Intel UHD Graphics
  • Citra Version (found in title bar): 1896
  • Game: Pokemon Ultra Sun

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by citra. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: How to Upload the Log File

its configure current game button. Also citra said dont mention you are trying to use downloaded cheats according to the rules lol

Didn’t work, and I’ve tried re-installing and using the canary launcher.

Click on the Configure Current Game button, and then click on the Cheats tab in that menu. It should be there.

Did that one, some cheats are working but some won’t.

Double check that your cheat codes were made for your game’s update version and region. If that isn’t the case, they won’t work. Cheats requiring the holding down of button presses to work, also generally don’t work.

hey i understood what you stated above but is there a way to make the “hold button to activate” cheat work at all? there is one i want to use for wild pokemon. i have the correct version of the game and also the correct update of the game and finally the correct cheat version for the game. please help.

Can you post the cheat, and tell me which game and game update version you’re using?

Sorry for the late reply but i did not bother with it again. It was to find wild pokemon in grass for alpha sapphire v1.4 on citra 2031. I instead chose to use the dexnav cheat and that one worked very good. By the way what about the walkthrough walls cheat? I have to hold down R to make it work but I got no results. Here it is:

Works fine on my end. Are you sure that you’re holding down the key that is mapped to the “R” key in Citra’s controls settings, and not just “R” on your keyboard?

Yes i am sure that i was holding down the correct key as i had rechecked my controls and i have the “R” key mapped to W so when i hold down W it should allow me to walk through walls but it does not work.

citra was updated since before your reply and it wint to 2038. The code still did not work but i just opened citra and it updated again to version 2040 and i tried it and lo it worked. So the problem had to be with the version of citra and not the code. Still thanks for your time and help even though the problem was resolved by version update. Again thank you.

hi can you share where did you find your cheats??

You can find a number of cheat codes for various games here:

the pokemon ultra moon item cheat doesnt work for me, does it work for anyone?

anyone know how to active the cheats that says press (select + up) it doesnt work for me

I don’t think cheats that require multiple different button presses work. Either that or the code just doesn’t work.
