5/20/2006 5:22:34 PM

(posted: 5/22/2006 6:23:38 PM) Answer Courtesy of pixelSHREDDER: Check to make sure you entered the codes right. If they're right, then check them against the same codes from somewhere else- google GameShark codes for some sites that'll help.

I do not have a gameshark for the GBA, but I was thinking about getting one. But before I do, I was wondering how do you put in the codes and use the gameshark?
5/27/2006 12:11:11 PM

(posted: 8/2/2006 12:21:47 AM) Answer Submitted Anonymously: Ok when you use the game shark first you must look up on the internet and so the gameshark pretty much hacks in the game.... So right when you get the shark and codes put in the game shark and put the code in. then u about half way done.. once the code is in u have to choose the code There, and put in the game that is used for the code and there you have it (every game has a (M) code and if you do not have the (m) code it will not work).

When i put my gameshark in it won't work, it goes to a blank screen what the hell is happening
6/3/2006 3:10:52 PM

what if the cheat is more than 1 line long?
6/20/2006 4:27:11 PM

(posted: 6/22/2006 9:41:50 PM) Answer Submitted Anonymously: what you do is you make a new game. There is an option that says add new cheat. You type in the code's title, for example"master code". for pokemon master code is longer than one line. When you finish typing master code push the start brings you to the add the code place. Add the first line so it's one code.Then the next line etc.

                                 So it looks like

first lets make up a code.     dr458aad3bc9


then u just enter that so that the top part is one code then bottom is another code in order and it should work.   

How can you make and use codes for games not on the list on the GameShark, like Pokemon Emerald, and how to you create a "master code"?

Seconds later a menu should come up, you may now let go of the buttons and there will be the option to clone the GameShark.

(posted: 11/25/2006 8:21:39 PM) Answer Courtesy of cornelius garfunkel: Well, this is a rather common problem. When first starting and the graphics/words are glitched, it is usually a sign that the GameShark, or game in the GameShark is not pushed in all the way, or straight. You might have to try several times for it to work. They could also need cleaning.

Every time I enter a Master Code the code isn't long enough and there is a bunch of 0's after it, is that how it's supposed to be?

I will try to awnser this as completely as I can... what you do is when you get the gameshark disk that you can buy for your computer, and you put it in the cd drive, it will want you to do something, DO IT! A link will pop up and when that happens open  it up it will probably already have some cheats if the cheats of game is already there you should rejoyce... but, if not than you will need to type in the game name and codes happily the codes are free and you can get them on after you odtain the desired code double click the button that says "add new code" a text box will pop up, You type in the desired code, and there you are.

what i think is you used to many cheats and crashed the game. the only way to fix it is to start the game over

I got a GameShark for Christmas, and I used it with Pokemon Emerald. I turned it on and it didn't crash but TVs were all over the place and I couldn't move. Tried again, and the Nintendo screen popped up and then the screen turned blank. I try again and again but the same thing happens, and when I turn the GameShark off, it's fine.

The main menu on my GameShark has 'Start Game', 'Codes', and 'Options'. I enter some codes and then I press 'Start Game' and it asks if I want to turn on the codes or not and i click 'yes' and then I turn off the GameShark like it says but then the codes aren't there. I'm using Pokemon Silver, but it doesn't have that listed, is that the problem?

I have a Game Shark Karabiner and every time I turn my game boy SP or DS on with everything on and all the way in it just says game boy with no nintendo and it doesn't start up. Is it hopeless and broken? Should I buy a new one?
3/28/2007 2:33:51 PM

(posted: 7/15/2007 2:21:23 PM) Answer Courtesy of Zennie: Actually that has happened with me before with the same model on my ds. I found that it isnt broken rather you need to blow some air into the karabiners input ports then make sure everything is as plugged in as possible. Hopefully this helps you

My gameshark doesn't seem to work. I put my game into the gameshark tightly, then the gameshark into the gameboy tightly as well. It gives me Gameboy, then says nintendo under it, then when you think it is going to load the GS it has a blank white screen. I bought it new (still in package) off of EBAY and the day I got it it stopped. What do I do?

3/28/2007 7:26:43 PM

(posted: 6/7/2007 10:13:46 PM) Answer Courtesy of SethMantle: I had this problem before as well, you want to make sure no other cheats are activated except the yellow sub-text above it, then activate the yellow text, the mod shop cheat and the free mod shop if you desire. I always use the "activate mod shop L=A" thing as it will never glitch; as for the physical mod shop, it doesnt work. Only activate one group cheat at a time; i.e. misc. items 1 + misc. items 2 is good but misc items + key items will always glitch.

On my gameshark when ever i pick a cheat it says "ERROR NO MASTER CODE".What do I do ? Am I supposed to buy it or type it or.....

will a gameshark for the original gameboy cartridges work with advance cartridges? and will the original gameshark fit in properly to a gameboy sp?
