CodeBreaker and ESR Problem
CodeBreaker and ESR Problem –

Thanks In Advanced
Sorry For My Bad English...^^
Most likely you are using cheats that are either incorrect for your game version, or otherwise unsuitable for this variation of the cheat engine.

Eg: Final Fantasy XII (original non-IZJS) exists in many different versions, such as these:
SLUS_209.63 == US English NTSC
SLES_543.54 == UK English PAL
SLES_543.55 == FR French PAL
SLES_543.56 == DE German PAL
SLES_543.57 == IT Italian PAL
SLES_543.58 == ES Spanish PAL
There may be others, that I don't know about too.
For this particular game it just so happens that cheat codes will work identically for the four regional versions of FR,DE,IT,ES, but those are incompatible with both the UK and US versions which are also mutually incompatible with each other. So to cover all of the game versions I mentioned above, you'd need three separate cheat sets, each with its own master code.
You MUST find out the exact identity of each game for which cheats codes you find on the internet are intended, if not in the form of a product code as above, then at least in the form of a definite statement such as "It's the standard US release" or something like that.
However, even when you know for sure that the codes are intended for the correct version, there is still a simple pitfall that can stop them from activating.
Cheat codes always need a 'Master Code' which is used by the cheat engine to link itself into the game engine, as needed to activate the cheating. There are several different Master Code methods supported by CodeBreaker, but one of them does not work properly in the patched CodeBreaker elf, so that method must be avoided. So if your cheat collection for a game uses such a Master Code, then you need to find another one of the types still supported, and use that instead. Such codes can be found either by special hacking tools or simply by finding some other cheat collection for the same game, which by luck does use the other type of Master Code.
In the 'raw' form it is very simple to recognize the two forms, as the ones that do not work properly always have an "F" as the first digit, while the master codes that always work well have a "9" as their first digit.
For example, one of the (many) possible master codes for Final Fantasy XII (US) is this one:
But since it starts with the digit "F" it won't work with patched CodeBreaker.
So I use the following master code instead:
Since this has the first digit "9" it will work with all CodeBreaker versions.
