    My N3DS's R Button is dead and I really want to play Zelda and other games but those which need the R Button are almost unplayable. I'd like to remap the R Button to the ZR Button.

    Is there a way to do something like that?

    Although you cannot remap the buttons you can do this.

    I'm so high, I don't even know!
    Have you tried taking a can of compressed air to your R button?

    I saw a thread on this a few weeks ago, but I'm having trouble finding it because the search function isn't too great on this site. If I recall correctly it is possible, but no one has created a tool yet that can carry out the function. I think the OP on that thread was offering a bit of money for someone to create the tool for him.

    Here's the thread. http://gbatemp.net/threads/is-there-any-way-to-remap-3ds-buttons-with-a9lh.442488/

    Somewhere on the second page is the solution, but you have to make a new file for each remap.

    You could always buy a replacement ribbon cable for the button and replace it yourself. It takes like a whole 20 minutes to open the DS, replace the ribbon cable, then reassemble it. 9/10 that's how the L/R buttons stop working if the cable becomes ripped or bent. You can order replacement L&R ribbons on Amazon, they're like $5. I only say because NTR is only a temp fix, if you REALLY want your console fixed it's easy and a lot better than paying Nintendo $85 for it. :D Here's a good tutorial if you decide you want to. https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Nintendo+3DS+Right+Shoulder+Button+Replacement/5644

    I would love a way to mirror the L and R triggers on the circle nub.

    Ok so my R Button seems to be working all of a sudden. I didn't even do anything but I'm not complaining. But still thanks for all the help and for the L + B = R Tool!

    Yeah, you'd have to edit the source code of the tool, but the creator said it involves ASM. It would be pretty cool if someone made a fully fledged version of it, with button customization on the app.

    I tried it out and L + B doesn't seem that bad but of course in games like Mario Kart it's pretty bad. Well at least my R Button works again.

    Yeah, L + B must suck for MK7. Especially with the L being use item. Glad to hear you've got your R button working though.
