    I was thinking about action replay there and tought about this. Will it be released for the 3ds? I emailed codejunkies but what i got back is a bit like this: f*** off and mind your own f***ing buisness'. So it is probably still a secret. It will probably work with 3ds games but what about the other games? I got my ar and put it in a ds lite and it wouldnt work even though it was a dsi. Does anyone else might know how it would work?

    Wow, those hackers aren't nice.......

    Anyways, Nintendo is making a much larger effort to stop Piracy and Hacking, so I doubt they will allow an Action Replay if one is made.

    Action replay isnt a hacking game. It is legal (i think) and it only puts codes in games to make it different. It isnt piracy as you can buy it in most game shops. I got mine in argos

    Yeah, but using an AR is basically inputting codes into the game which is cheating, and Nintendo refrains from cheating and the like. The people who make an AR are usually hackers also.

    Its not really 'cheating' in the sense of hacking since most games developers actually make the cheat menu's and actually create the cheats for that game, and easter eggs etc.

    In that case, I doubt Nintendo will develop cheats for the game, then, since the Wii had no AR.

    I believe AR works by injecting numbers into loopholes in the game's code that makes it behave differently. The codes you see weren't created by developers; they're codes that, when inserted correctly, cause the game to have errors while you're playing it. People go to the trouble of finding out which of these errors are actually beneficial to the player (e.g.: a code may create an error with the health system, giving you infinite health; or it may glitch up the number of lives you have, giving you infinite lives) and put them up online.

    Then again, I've never used an AR in my life and don't know much about it, so take that with a grain of salt. The Feldian Yoshi has been wrong before (heh. third-person).

    But some games do have actual legitimate cheat codes, right?

    To continue from feld0, here is an example of a code from mario kart ds.

    Levitate

    94000130 fffd0000
    B217acf8 00000000
    00000260 00001800
    D2000000 00000000

    And here is another code from mario kart ds

    Press L for BULLET BILL:

    94000130 FDFF0000
    B217BC34 00000000
    B0000974 00000000
    20000000 00000001
    20000010 0000000E
    D3000000 00000000
    B217BC34 00000000
    B0000B84 00000000
    20000000 00000001
    20000010 0000000E
    D3000000 00000000
    B217BC34 00000000
    B0000D94 00000000
    20000000 00000001
    20000010 0000000E
    D3000000 00000000
    B217BC34 00000000
    B0000FA4 00000000
    20000000 00000001
    20000010 0000000E
    D2000000 00000000

    So different codes are longer. The more longer the code is, the more advanced it is

    Even so, I think Nintendo might sue if people do decide to produce an AR for the 3DS, if its possible.

    It has been released on most game systems anyway. I have it for dsi and there is nothing illegal about it (i hope so). But it does say this when you start it up 'this game is not licenced by nintendo'

    Nintendo would probably try to block, and they are given an advantage because of their automatic updates they can release at any time.

    If they do that, can't the makers of Action Replay sue Nintendo then?

    How would they be able to sue? It's not licensed by Nintendo, Nintendo didn't help them make it, and it's their handheld, so they should be able to do whatever they want. . . .

    Action Replay is a cheating device, and Nintendo generally does not like hacking or cheating on their consoles. With their newfound push to end hacking, banning Action Replay might be one of the actions they take to prevent people from cheating the game.

    I know they aren't illegal, but, as Supper said, they don't like it!

    I think that Nintendo can prevent Action Replay from being on the 3DS because they own the rights to it and have to approve software that it sells with.

    Wow, talk about a long gap between the last post, but the Action Replay and things of that type are things that have the code being altered on the top half, and the replacement code on the bottom half, and the code makes it do certain things, depending on the original code and the replacement.

    Someone is right, the codes don't cause errors, it changes values in the games Random. Access. Memory.(RAM) Sounds familiar, huh? So, in Super Mario 64 DS , moon jump was created by changing the value of gravity, lets say 1, to 0.3. That creates the gigantic leap because gravity isn't as strong.

    That's what I do with some of my PC games. It's just some numbers in a file that you change.

    You can do it via hex-editor, but we should talk about the Action Replay to keep on topic.

    I hope there is a Homebrew channel with Gecko OS, which is basically Wii's Action Replay, but for the 3DS. :D

    On the loading screen for all AR devices it says"THIS DEVICE IS NOT SUPPORTED BY NINTENDO" So Nintendo really has no control over these AR companies, even though most of us would like them to. So basically I agree with chris. And yes if Nintendo feels like these AR producers have crossed the line of making these games worth nothing to the consumer then they reserve the right to take that company to court.But to answer an actual question, yes companies can make AR codes, BUT they may not make so many codes that they make gameplay impossible or useless, and they also may not do anything to make a game so you can play it on another companies system(EX. Wii Sports Resort on the PS3 or XBOX) which sounds pretty stupid but I have seen it done!

    PS, Now why anyone would want to put a wii game on the PS3 is anybodies guess :)

    No Action Replay is licensed by Nintendo. Nintendo updated the Wii a few years ago to block the Gamecube Action Replay. They do not support it what so ever. There is no Wii, PS3, or Xbox 360 Action Replay because they can Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft can update it to block it.

    If ar is gone, then I need a different method of getting event stuff without going to the actually event on all future pokemon games. I always hated those events... ;(
