How to use Cheats in Games Using Wii Homebrew

(Note: pressing the “+” button will bring up an explanation of Accio Hacks’ controls at any time.)

Once you highlight the cheat file for you game and press A, you will see a list of all the available cheats for that game. Highlight each one you want and press A to add it. If you need to edit a cheat code press 1. Pressing 2 will show you comments for that code (which are also displayed if you press 1).

Once you have selected the cheats you want, hit the B button. You will be given a choice of saving or not saving the file. Go ahead and save it.

Keep pressing the B button until you get to the main menu. Highlight “Exit to HBC.”


It is possible to use TXT files downloaded from the Gecko Codes Website with Accio Hacks (useful if it is failing to connect with the Gecko database, or if your Wii is not connected to the Internet). You simply need to put the file in the correct folder on your SD card. The formula is SD:\codes\X\L\GAMEID.txt, with X indicating the channel letter (which can be seen in the Accio main menu after each selection) and L indicating the first letter of the game title.

You cannot rename the GCT file in Accio Hacks. If you need to rename it to match your game id, you can use WiiXplorer to do so.

You cannot (at present) add codes in Accio Hacks.

Now it's time to launch your game.
