Q:  What is the Action Replay Duo?

A: The Action Replay Duo is a cheat device that is compatible with both the GBA/SP and the Nintendo DS. 

 

The Action Replay Duo is compatible with all of the GBA/ SP codes found at www.codejunkies.com.  These codes can be used when playing GBA/SP games on your GBA/SP or on your Nintendo DS.  You can also download new GBA/SP codes from our website using the included PC application.


The Action Replay Duo also serves as a Max Drive for the Nintendo DS allowing you to manage your Nintendo DS saves and download new game saves from www.codejunkies.com.

 

 

 

Q:  I cannot backup my saves for Pokemon Diamond and Pearl.

 

A:  Unfortunately, since the Action Replay Duo has been discontinued, it may not be compatible with newer WiFi enabled games such as Pokemon Diamond & Pearl.

 

 

 

Q: I am getting the error message, “1st fat table failed” or “1st inode table failed” on my GBA/DS Action Replay.

A: You may need to reset your Action replay Duo to factory default settings.  First switch on the DS and choose to start GBA game, or if you are using a GBA/SP simply turn on the unit.  Press both shoulder buttons, A, B, and Start simultaneously as the Action Replay loads.  You should see a message confirming that Global Reset has been activated.  You will have 3 seconds at this point to switch off the console if you do not wish to perform the reset.  Resetting will erase all user settings, Action Replay codes, and DS saves stored on the Action Replay.  Once your AR has been successfully reset, you should be able to use it again normally.

A:  To restore your GBA codelist, connect your AR Duo to the PC and start the PC software.  Choose Action Replay GBX (GBA) and you will then see the GBA codes saved to your PC.  Next, select the games you wish to transfer to the Duo.  You may select multiple titles by holding down the Ctrl Key while left-clicking each title.  Click on the green arrow to send the selected game codes over to the Duo.  You should now be able to use the Action Replay again normally.
