I don't know, I prefer to have my roms alone, but could be as a possibility.

Can I suggest that there be another path for cheats, so when you import/export in the cheat window it doesn't open the ROM directory.

That's a good idea too to complement the others. A path just for the cheats will be great.

My XML's

I used batch files and macros to pull all of the cheats from gamegenie.com and make them XML's for use with Nestopia.

The only problems so far, is that Dragon Warrior 4 is too big for Nestopia to load, and also, with codes needing multiple entries, I just used the description "And", but I didn't realize Nestopia alphabetizes the codes. So if someone wants to edit the xmls, if a description says "and" then it goes with the code under it.

Feel free to add or edit these in any way.

PS, It was nice to know that all you need in the xml is the game genie code and the description, Nestopia figures out the rest.

Edit: I forgot to add that some of the descriptions say "or", and that means that code is an alternative if the one under it doesn't work.

I'm fixing the "and"s and "or"s myself, the new files will be up later tonight or tomorrow.

Edit:
Fixed XMLs
Here are the fixed files, please help me test these. Dragon Warrior 4 still needs split up.

Again, feel free to edit these however you want.

In testing my own files, I'm realizing that not all of the codes are loading. But yet, if I add the same codes to a different file in the same manner, they load fine. I don't quite understand it.

Awesome rimsky82!
Can you please look at my Castlevania 1 and 2 and also 1942 and implement those codes into yours. You are missing some very good ones. If you used a macro with the codes from gamegenie.com, why do you only have one code in your 1942? I hope codes aren't missing from all the rest of them.

I think these are far better than the ones at the game genie page.

1942 (JU)
=========
[INFINITE LIVES]
SGXLKEVK

[INFINITE ROLLS]
SGESPUVK

[INVINCIBILITY]
OLXNEEOO
OUELZSOO

The problem is that the game genies that galoob people did are not so good. And lot of their codes were too basic and not covered lot of important effects.
I had made lot of codes for NES, and still I have lot more to run into. That's the reason why I wanted Nestopia (for far the best NES emu today) to have a cheat engine that allow the codes to auto load when the ROM is loaded charging all the codes in a single file.
I planned to pass all my codes to Nestopia and start again doing what is left. And that way could be more easy to release one single file than lots of little files. But once again that's only my opinion and my point of view.

1942 was one of the files I was testing the macros on, and I must not have noticed codes were deleted. All other games should be ok. I'm still having problems loading the codes; Nestopia will only load some. I'm wondering if it has to do with the xml formatting.

Once I figure out this problem I'll start adding more codes to them.

Edit: I figured out that it's not the formatting, it's that Nestopia won't load 2 codes with the same address, even if they're not enabled by default. I think it would be better if it would load all codes, but not let you enable 2 codes with the same address. That would give us options i.e. to start with 3, 6, or 9 lives.

OK man sounds good. Please keep me updated. When all is finished, I will make the pack available on my website. I guess I will stop the project that I have started since you apparently know much more about this then me.

Just an opinion, I know your codes are better then the ones on the game genie site, but if it's easy to implement those ones too, I would, just for good old times sake LOL. No really, just to have them, for those that want them.

Also, any reason all your xml file names have underscores?

Good work dude, send me any updates please.
