Super Smash Bros. Brawl


After much exhaustive testing,I can't get cheats to work on Android for some extra fun.
Even after confirming enabled cheats with [Gecko_Enabled] set up properly with names and the "$" behind them.

Edit the Dolphin.ini,I used ES File Explorer's text editor to set-> EnableCheats = True
Place a copy of RSBE01.ini with "Infinite Jumps (Must Be On)" and "P1 Infinite Jumps" codes pre-enabled/confirmed working on Windows version into sdcard/dolphin-emu/GameSettings on your Android device from your PC.
Start the game and begin a Brawl match set to unlimited time with P1 as Wario and P2 as a level 1 CPU Pikachu and only Super Mushrooms on high,then pick the WarioWare stage to battle on.

Don't know if any older version works,but I am on android release #1759/4.0-8291 currently.

NSTV Pro at stock settings,unfortunately no root from lack of convenience of USB requirements from no laptop.

How do I enable log saving for the Android Dolphin?

This is due to us not packaging the codehandler.bin file under Android.
If you copy the file to /sdcard/dolphin-emu then cheats work fine.

Thanks, Sonicadvance1! I added codehandler.bin and totaldb.dsy to dolphin-emu and I was finally able to get the cheat codes I wanted to use to work for Super Mario Sunshine. The only thing that's missing now is the AR Code for Dolphin Emulator UI. Time for some fun with Mario Kart: Double Dash!! [:-)]

Hope I am not breaking anything,I can't find a proper reply button.

Thanks for finding the solution!
Yep,now it is working fine after getting both of those raw files from github and placing them in /sdcard/dolphin-emu/ with no problem. :)
Also hoping for the UI to be updated to toggle which cheats are enabled/disabled.

The interface for cheats on Windows is mildly irritating in its own way because you can't add new cheats or edit existing ones directly through the UI,that kind of design would help on Android greatly,even if the devs prefer to create an individual app just for management of adding,editing,and deleting cheats in a simpler way.

OS should be marked as Android.
