CHT File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open a CHT file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .CHT files.

What is a CHT file?

Files that contain the .cht file extension are usually associated with files that contain cheat codes for a variety of games created for the Super Nintendo gaming platform.

The cheat codes that are stored in a CHT file are often used by SNES game emulators to enable "cheats" for Nintendo games that are played on a computer rather than on the actual SNES gaming console. These CHT files are intended to make it easier for a user to play the associated Super Nintendo game.

The dBase software application has also been known to use the .cht file suffix. These CHT files contain interface files that are used by the dBase software program.
