Try to delete the old cheats file and input new codes in the menu.

I have no cheats files to delete.  I’m just inputting then by hand on the menu.  Using codes off of game genie website.  To be honest I’ve never used cheat codes on the n8 before.  Just tested it when I just read a post saying they were having issues

Cheat work perfectly fine here with v1.20.
Select the game with "Select Only",,, press 'select' button on controller,,, enter cheats,,, press 'start' button on controller to run game with cheats.

Oh, that's a bit weird. You have to "Select Only", then put in cheats, then hit start to run. I never use cheats, but decided to test and couldn't get them working either until I did that. I can see how folks might not get it right; it's not terribly obvious you need to do it in that order.

I got a couple to work, but some don’t like to stick.  Example...  AVVLAUSZ  zelda 1      Don't take damage from anything..  taken off of game genie.com site doesn’t take however 16 hearts code works fine.

Can someone test this?
Invincibility (ESST-GTEY) for Castlevania (USA) (Rev A)

It works fine on rc5 but it doesn't work using rc8 or 1.20 final.

PS: Some codes works and others don't. Weird.

Yes, I confirm that some codes do not work.
Also, seems like the N8 "injects" the codes slower and not every frame.

My 2 cents is the lock up problems seem to have gone away. Ran SMB all night not a single lock up. Any of the betas and RC firmware would not work or simply lock after 20 minutes or so. The famicom disk errors seem to have gone away as well. So good job on that.

If EDN8 executing each game genie code using more cycles that's explains why invincibility doesn't work and infinite lives works.
Invincibility needs constant write even if it's asm code (from my understand at least).

Thanks for the update!  Lovely to see so much support even for an older cart!  Curious to re-test that Space Shuttle game to see if that's affected, I think that was MMC1 though!

Sounds like it. You could just give it a quick try on a different sd card.
