Free Nintendo DSi Cheat Codes

Updated on July 24, 2013

Get the Cheat Codes for Your Favorite Nintendo DSi Games

Looking for cheats for the Nintendo DSi games? Well, join the crowd! ;)

I'll post all the codes below after filtering out the garbage hints, tricks and talking trash that goes on inside gamer forums.

Just in case you're confused, the DSi will play ALL previous 'store-bought' DS games, EXCEPT those that require the Game Boy Advance cartridge slot. Not to worry though, there's not a lot of those games that you'll miss anyway - some, but not too many. :)

Well enough jaw-boning, I've gotta get searching for my readers!

More later.

*** Cheat Updates ***

While It's been pretty hard to find anything worthwhile in the DSi Cheat Code Arena at the moment, but here's what's happened since...

- Added the cheat codes and walkthrough link for Professor Layton and the Unwound Future

- Added the cheat codes for LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga.

- With the release to the DSi version, I've added the cheat codes for the new, M-rated, Grand Theft Auto - Chinatown Wars game.

- Added a couple winning options for Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor.

Get Free Nintendo DSi Games Without Hacking Your Original Console!

The Acekard 2i is a flash card for your Nintendo DSi.  It offers Plug-n-Play compatibility.

Being the same size as an original DS Lite cartridge, there's no need for another plug-in gizmo to worry about.

However the best part is that you do not have to mod your original console (and hence void your warranty) with custom firmware or use yet another adapting device to boot up your gear.

The Acekard 2i supports Nintendo DSi and the DS Lite consoles.

Quite simply, it make things real easy.

Protect your saved games

Since the Acekard 2i writes directly to your MicroSD card (and save file), there's no need to manually select the types of saves, including battery.  These saved files are compatible with other flash cartridges, so you can share.  :)  All that's needed for you to do is to make sure that the saved file has the same prefix name and that it's put into the same directory with the other files.  From there, you just run the software and use new saved file.

Compatibility

The Acekard 2i inherits the best qualities from the Acekard's product line.  You just drag and drop the software on the MicroSD card in order to run.  (The initial boot will take some time to create the save file.  The load time afterwards will be very fast.)

Supports homebrew programs and games

There is a thing called the DLDI auto-patcher and the Acekard 2i is compatible with it.  This allows all of the homebrew programs to work for you.  Just copy the homebrewed application to the MicroSD card and run it.  You can use Moonshell, a well recognized homebrew software for the Nintendo DS.  Moonshell handles all of your multi-media needs; from watching a movie, to listening to MP3, to reading a TXT novel.  It is all just so easy.  (Some homebrewed programs will need to be put at the root level of the MicroSD card in order to work the best.)

Supports SDHC MicroSD cards

The Acekard 2i supports SDHC and offers you unmatched space.  You can now put all of your favorites in just one place.  Don't worry about the brand or speed of the MicroSD cards because the Acekard 2i can work with them all - whatever you have or is the cheapest.  ;)

Supports Action Replay cheats with a built-in editor

Action Replay cheats are supported in .dat, .xml and .cc format.  You can select how to use your AR cheats by using the built-in editor provided.

Here's a list of instructions to make that work for you.

  1. Copy AR cheats in .dat or .xml format to /__ak2/cheats.  Copy .cc format file to the same directory of file.
  2. Press "Y" to popup the editor.
  3. Select "Cheat DB file".
  4. Select the cheat file.
  5. Select "Rebuild".
  6. If you have the cheat code for the software, then a list window will be shown.  You can then use the "X" and "Y" to enable or disable them.
  7. Press "A" to save your changes and enter the software to play.

Here are a few more features that you may be interested it.

  • Built in NDS ROM "Trimming" Function.
  • Fully touch screen operational.
  • Built-in file operations (copy, paste, delete).
  • Can be used as a DS Passme to boot from Slot-2 flash carts.  Run GBA games by using the expand cart.
  • Acekard 2i Supports Multi-language.
  • Supports Skin and Dynamic skin changes.
  • Supports soft-resets, Download play and WiFi playing.

I think that the only thing that remains to be discussed is why aren't you getting one right now?  ;)

Currently, TheMott.com sells theirs for $39.99 plus shipping.

For US and Canadian inquiries, you can see more at www.ConsoleSource.com sells the AceKard2i for $34.95 $24.95, but if you can get 3 friends together, you can get them for $19.95 apiece (plus shipping) - which doesn't suck.

Check out this YouTube video from the company that makes this product and see just how easy it really is.

      @chielove: Free DSI points ended about 2 years ago. The only thing that's out there now for free points are offers to join some website and then 'simply answer surveys' and as a 'prize' for working 200 hours & completing a gazillion surveys, you can finally get a 'free' DSi gift card -- big woop. You can get a DSi Point card for half price (only 5 left) from this store --> http://www.gamedealsrus.com/detail.asp?id=7682&... <-- I don't know them, nor am I getting any ca$h from them, so do what you want. :)
