How do I reset to factory settings?
2/25/2007 11:17:54 AM

(posted: 4/13/2007 7:40:08 AM) Answer Submitted Anonymously: : Follow these instructions to reset the device, after which you need to add all of the codes and saves using the link cable and PC software.

Insert your Action Replay into your console, and a GBA game into Action Replay’s GBA slot. While the GBA or DS is powered off, hold A+B+Start+Select+Right shoulder button+Left shoulder button. While holding the above buttons, switch on the GBA or DS, but do not release these buttons. A message box appears. Let go of the ‘A’ button, then press and hold it again. The console powers up, and factory settings are restored.

How do I input codes to get events in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl?
5/21/2007 2:58:14 PM

(posted: 7/21/2007 4:00:54 PM) Answer Courtesy of donut:): There are 2 ways:

1. Use an Action Replay event code:

Darkrai- 94000130 FCFF0000 B21C4D28 00000000 B0000004 00000000 0000AA3C EDB88320 2000AA68 00000008 D2000000 - Press L and R and go to any pokemart and talk to the man dressed in green. He will give you an item. Then go to the house in the top right corner of Canalave City. Go into the bed and a strange man will say something and you will fall asleep. You then appear on an island- move up the path and into the trees to battle Darkrai!

Manaphy- B21C4D28 00000000 B0000004 00000000 0000AA3C EDB88320 2000AA68 00000007 D2000000 00000000 Go to any Pokemon Center and talk to the man dressed in green. He will give you a Manaphy egg. Hatch the egg to Manaphy! (Note: you can also mate Manaphy with a Ditto to get Phione

2. Use the wild Pokemon modifier code.

94000130 FDFF0000
B21C4D28 00000000
B0000004 00000000
94000130 FEFF0000
00000890 01ED0001
D0000000 00000000
DA000000 00000892
DC000000 00024620
C0000000 0000000B
D7000000 00000000
DC000000 00000006
D2000000 00000000

Press L and R. This code will put 493 (the number of Pokemon in the game) Master Balls in your bag. To get a Pokemon toss Master Balls so you have the same number of Master Balls as the ID # of the Pokemon you want to appear in the wild. Then hold down L and run around in tall grass. For example, say I want a Totadile. Totadile's ID # is 158. 493 - 158 = 335. Toss 335 Master Balls so you have 158 left. Then hold L and run around in the tall grass and voila! You see a Totadile. You can do the same thing with event Pokemon. Press L and R to reset the code. (Note: the level of the Pokemon will depend on where you see it).

So, your saying that you have the Action Replay hooked up, but it dosen't do anything? No problem!


1. If your AR came with a disk, put it into the computer. Your computer will now install the Action Replay Code Manager.

2. Open the Code Manager. It will now say 'Waiting for DS' in the 'Nintendo DS' box. Plug your AR into the computer. (LEAVE THE AR in the DS and LEAVE THE DS ON). Now, your AR will upload it's contents into the computer.

3. Now you can either

a) Upgrade the drives

b): Put new codes in


c) Install AR Framework

There you go! A complete 'How to' on updating the AR!

how do you delete action replay info
6/17/2007 10:23:48 AM

(posted: 1/2/2008 8:49:05 AM) Answer Courtesy of UltimateDoomsdayGame:

To delete Action Replay codes and/or reset it to Factory Settings, follow these steps!

1. Enter the Code Manager.

2. Hook up your Action Replay

3. Turn your DS on.

4. Your AR will now try to update itself. But, it won't.

5. Look in the Nintendo DS box

6: Click on every game and press the garbage can icon.

If that's too hard for you, try this.

1. Open the Code Manager

2. Press 'Quick Update'

3. Your AR will now start deleting games.

4. As soon as the process is done, turn off the connection.

WARNING: Unplugging your AR during the 'Quick Update' process might ruin your AR. Just turn it off to avoid corruption.

There. Your entire AR will be wiped out.

Make sure you have the latest version of the ARCM.  If you don't, you will need to do a software upgrade.  If you haven't done so already, create a new codelist under the "My Codelists."  Copy the codes for Pokemon Pearl under your custom codelist.  You can then right-click on the title of the game and add new codes as you wish.

For the hardware, try resetting the Action Replay by loading it on the DS and holding the A, B, Start, and Select buttons.  The first screen should persist for much longer than normal, and when the Action Replay DS main menu loads, your hardware should be reset.  At this time, try connecting it to your PC and transferring data again.

well first you have to go to the mouse and then a thing should show up saying NEW GAME NAME then enter it then another thing should show up that says NEW GAME ID then you look at the ds manual and on the back should be a barcode and about 6 or 7 or 8 numbers (there all fine) then enter it and press next then you can do cheats on that game!

The same thing happened to me today. Try to blow on your ds game slot, your ARDS, and your DS game. If that doesn't work, then try to erase it by doing it with the ARDS Code Manager online, or while turning on the DS with the AR in it, hold A+B before turning on theDS, then when you turn it on, hold A+B+SELECT+START, the when the action replay main screen turns on, let go, and everything will be erased.  If THAT doesn't work, then you have to buy a new one. If you have anymore questions email me at 

I have vista and can't download via pc. I've tried to manually insert the codes but this doesn't seem to work either. I get as far as inserting the GameID but the next button won't work. What am I doing wrong?
