    I'm getting a DS very shortly, and I'm delighted to see that (with the right equipment) I can play all my old GBA roms on it.

    How does button configeration work for GBA games played on a DS. I only ask because I've got my fingers crossed that I'll be able to play StreetFighter Alpha 3 with all 6 buttons on the DS. I suspect that I'm not going to get the answer that I would like, so let me down gently.

    Take it easy folks.

    Sorry to tell you this, but the X&Y buttons are unresponsive in Gba mode.
    However, I also own StreetFighter 3 Alpha for Gba and it plays great on the DS [​IMG]

    Snes/megadrive emulation is not bad these days which is probably the better route.

    Also it does not answer your question per se but there is a mod chip to switch the keys used in GBA mode. There was a topic around here in Early September as I recall.

    Edit: yeah that is one of them.

    I was 99% sure that would be the case. Oh well.

    Good idea going the emulation route though. I'll certainly give the trusty snes SSF2T a go.
