    I was trying to activate cheats for my 5 year old, when I go to edit retroarch I don’t see any cores. The core updater don’t do anything either. Are there suppose to be cores? Will I need to add them myself?

    I suppose you mean you open up the retroarch menu?

    Where are you not seeing cores?

    My guess is is because there is no core loaded/associated at that moment. Have you tried accessing the same menu from inside a game?

    For a joypad it is SELECT + X and there you should see options for the current core.

    Lemme know if this works!

    Select and x don’t do anything. I tried other combinations as well and nothing worked.

    I got into the menu with a NES game. When I went to load core it said no content. The directory for the cores looks correct.

    You can’t use the core updater etc with RetroPie.

    We don’t ship with any cheat files, and I have never tested it, but I guess you need to install some cheat data somewhere, and then use “quick menu” -> “core cheat option” and “cheat File load”

    Cheats are available here – https://github.com/libretro/libretro-database/tree/master/cht

    I have got the cheats working now. I didn’t see Contra on the list which my son loves. I was actually able to make the cheat file myself within a few mins. Thanks for the help.
    I’m sure the little one will have be busy adding cheats and so on, glad to see he enjoys what I had when I was younger. I’m sure once he’s older it will change to the newest system time will tell.

    By the way … To use the cheats in Genesis MegaDrive roms should run on lr-genesis-plus-GX emulator. On the emulator lr-pitsodrive – cheats do not work.

    Change the default emulator main lr-genesis-plus-gks rom files need to use the correct USA EU Japan compare CRC32.

    Not all *.cht files suit, edit them in accordance with the base http://gamehacking.org
    Good luck cheaters !!!
