Can't get cheats to work properly
So i've done a bit of research(not extensive) and i havent found anything on this issue yet. I can't get cheats to work for ANY game, whenever i check off which cheats i want to use. Nothing happens, i'll close the Cheats list window and reopen it, and none of the cheats will be selected again.

Moving to issues forum.

I'm having the same problem. I read the user manual and it says to make sure that the Memory Pak is plugged in, which mine is, and it still isn't working. There's no "Okay" or "Save" option when selecting the cheats. It only has the "Close" at the top and the "Unmark All" option. There's an arrow on the side that has options for "New Cheat" and "Update Cheat," but those aren't helpful. Not sure how much this matters, but I also noticed the manual is v.1.6.

There is an checkbox called "remember selected cheats" in settings.
I doubt that it will have any effect,but just try it anyway.

Try leaving the cheat list open with an enabled cheat and select the main window to test if its working.
Make sure to try a simple cheat that will most likely work.
Something like infinite deku nuts or infinite bombs on Zelda should be okay.

Also, you need to uncheck in Settings "Hide Advanced Settings" or the sidebar won't appear.

The two dumb things to include as "advanced" settings...

Limit framerate,and the cheat-list edit arrow existing in versions above 1.6 of PJ64.

Removing the edit arrow only makes sense when a turbo noob would decide to put a completely random address and value as a cheat,only to accidentally wreck their computer.

i have tried everything
i have tried turning on "remember cheats" and it keeps turning it off on me how can i get it to stay as checked it is driving me insane trying to keep it active when it always turns on im sitting on v2.3.2 and im getting fed up with all the drama it is causing me:mad::mad::mad:

Then make sure you have permissions to save in pj64 folder :rolleyes:

I am having the same issue also. I cannot get cheats to stay properly active either. I do not see an Okay button to save it or anything. I have hide advanced settings disabled and remember selected cheats enabled. I am also using a memory pack. What am I doing wrong?

i just saved dramas and went back to an older version of the launcher to keep my cheats active since ive tried everything including permissions to try and get them to save

I know the answer
It seems you have to do the setting change, getting Advanced shown and the tick of 'remember cheats' when you don't have any game loaded. So before you pick any games. Seems to have fixed it.
