Troubles using cheats in 1.5
#1
Just switched over from 1.4 to 1.5, and am unable to make cheats work. I made the pnach file, loaded the text and placed it in the cheats folder but when I load the game it just plays normally. 

I followed a youtube tutorial and saw the person had right clicked on the pcsx file, hit "open file location" and placed their pnach file in this Cheats folder located in this folder. The "open file location" option is available on my 1.4 version but not 1.5. Could this have something to do with it? Did I make a mistake while downloading it? Anyone know what's up? 

Thanks

Please post the contents of the emulog.txt file after the problem occurs. The file can be found in "My Documents\PCSX2\logs" for the installer version or in "PCSX2\logs" for the portable/binary version.

Please make sure to enclose your emulog in code tags like so (remove the empty space on the closing code tag!):

There is something strange here
"switched over from 1.4 to 1.5"
1.5 is beta/portable only (unless you delete the portable.ini file or you overwrite the 1.4.0 installer(extracted the beta in the PCSX2 folder in Program Files)
By looking at the log,pcsx2 is looking for files in the desktop which will mean the beta is in the desktop but at the same time it is also looking in locations which the installer is using
