    I'm playing Phantom of Hourglass using an R4 3DS RTS. The gold R4 if it matters. Is there any way that its possible to use the directional pad for Phantom of Hourglass instead of having to use the stylus?

    I think there is actually a cheat code for that that is part of the cheat.db provided with pretty much every flashcart.

    Thank you! I didn't know about the cheat.db for my flashcard

    Update: For some reason it won't work for me. I select it but then in-game it doesn't apply the setting :(

    There are also ips patches that do the same thing.

    LunarIPS will work to apply the ips patch.

    I don't know how to use this program either. I can't believe how hard this has become.

    Just launch LunarIPS and hit "apply patch," Select you patch, then select your game.

    LunarIPS searches for an .IPS extension file when selecting "apply patch". The patch I'm using, the one referenced above only has xdelta file extensions.

    Thank you. That worked. I've never dealt with any of this. I had no idea how to do any of this. I appreciate everyone's help.

    MSearles, where on the card did you put the patch and program? I'm lost, but want to do this also.
