    So yeah...SvR 2009 was dumped today, and it's actually a decent game. I don't even mind the touchscreen controls as much as some seem to. BUT, I do agree that it would be a much better game if it controlled with the d-pad + buttons instead of the d-pad + touchscreen. I know there are some pretty good hackers around here, so I was wondering if anyone would like to try to take on a project like this. I know I'm not the only one who would like to see this hack.

    Here's how I think the touchscreen controls could be transferred to the buttons:

    Strike - Y Button
    Weak Grapple - Tap A Button once
    Strong Grapple - Tap A Button twice (Since weak grapples are handled by drawing a single circle, and strong grapples are handled by drawing a double circle, it'd probably be easier to do it this way than to have strong grapples done by holding A)
    Run - X Button (I don't know how well this could be reassigned to a button, since running is only handled through double tapping on the d-pad)
    Turn opponent on mat over - Left or right + A
    Ground grapple - A when near opponent's head/feet

    Actually, pretty much anything that's handled by drawing circles in the game could be reassigned to the A button. Just have the A button function the same as drawing a single circle.

    In fact, the only things I can think of that could pose a problem are the submission system, since you have to slide an icon on the screen back and forth to apply pressure/escape, and the pin system, since you have to touch numbers EBA style to kick out. Also getting up after getting knocked down could be a problem, since you have to slide the stylus back and forth. But I'm pretty sure that the game reads any touchscreen input in this situation, so pressing Y and A rapidly SHOULD have the same effect.

    Anyway, I'm pretty sure that something like this isn't impossible, and would greatly improve the game. Anyone interested in giving it a shot?

    A request such as this would go farther at a place like Kodewerx, where the hackers hang out.

    I wish they have the same contorls as the PSP verison. That would be much better.

    This is a great idea since I've played the game until now I can't win!!! when I try to grapple the opponent by drawing a circle on them they always took the advantage from me...... [​IMG]

    i want a hack like that. its unplayable with the touchscreen controls and gives me a headache.
    i just want to use buttons, which would make the game get rated 50% higher. controls are so important, why dont they added OPTIONAL button control from the start? i already hated the 2008 smackdown for the ds for its touchscreen only controls.

    I requested the hack on Kodewerx weeks ago. Nobody's responded. I guess that means they aren't interested.

    I don't think anybody will help, the game is not so popular to have something like that made for it also it's something hard to pull off in the first place.

    You'll probably just have to play the PSP one.
