I’m pretty new to 3DS emulators, so forgive me for being dumb here.
I’m trying to play a ROM hack of Omega Ruby on my phone. The game works fine, however I’ve noticed a couple issues I don’t know how to resolve.
It seems on Android there is a particular graphical bug with Blue Pokemon appearing pale/ghostly. I guess the fix is to change a setting for accurate multiplication, which is not an option I see in my settings.
I also cannot do cheats. This confuses me because there’s two ways of doing them, one is that apparently there’s supposed to be an option for cheats in the drop down menu. I don’t have that option. I saw some older versions had it, so I downloaded an older apk. However any apk I download does not have any menu at all. Nothing to change settings or anything. I can open a general menu in the initial home page of the app (which coincidentally did have that accurate multiplication option) but once I’m in the game I can no longer open any menus. Which sucks because, to me at least, the older apk’s have terrible button layouts. So I can’t even change that.
The other option is apparently you can add them in the files of citra. I can find that just fine. But the instructions aren’t very clear. All I find is “you need to get the game ID” ok??? Then what? I can’t upload/create a file to the folder, I can only create a new folder. Idk how you add cheats in this way. I’m not even trying to be crazy, I just want to get the TMs. Not trying to walk through walls or do wild modifiers or anything.
So basically, the current version of Citra in the app store has a drop down menu but no options for cheats or to fix the pale blue Pokemon. And no idea how to add cheats to the files.
Apk’s allegedly have a cheats option in the menu, however it’s inaccessible. They do however have a way to select the accurate multiplication to fix the blue glitch but I couldn’t test that since at the time there are no blue Pokemon to check.
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
The blue pokemon being displayed as white is a bug in the emulation with some device’s GPU drivers. There is nothing you can do about this for now. Accurate shader multiplication is found under the Graphics settings of the latest Citra official builds. It’s been there since the first official build was released. Though, I’m not aware of that actually solving the color bug yet.
The reason why you’re getting conflicting information is because there are unofficial builds that have implemented their own features and bug fixes, but they haven’t upstreamed most of those to Citra official. Hence the differences between different builds.
Citra official hasn’t had a cheats menu implemented yet. But the cheats functionality is implemented. You simply have to add them manually:
Create a new .txt file and enter your cheats in this format (you can do this using almost any text editor):
[Insert name of the Cheat code]
Now name the .txt with the title ID of your game (which you can find here: http://www.3dsdb.com/) and place it inside of the
Internal Storage\citra-emu\cheats folder.
For example, Pokemon Ultra Moon’s cheat code file would be called
I’m a New french playe (soory for orthograph) and i have a big problem.
I respect all the conditions over my message, change the name .txt, “*citra_enabled” but only one of my three cheats are working perfectly I write like this :
[Pokémon Encounter Route 2 (R+Select)]
[Lvl 100 aft battle 2nd PKMN (Press Y)]
[(START+L)Wild Pokemon Shiny, (START+R)Disable v1.5]
Only the Lvl 100 work i don’t know why can you explain to me?..
I precise i have try all the configurations with the Start, Select, R L ZL ZR button but it still doesnt work…
We didn’t make the cheat codes, only the cheat system. The system is based on Luma’s system on the 3DS. Please verify whether the cheat code you’re trying to use actually work on the 3DS or not.
