    The thread for the button hack seems to have died, and I didn't want revive it, since my topic is more specific. I'm wondering what would be required to reconfigure the button assignments for the arm9.bin hack? I really want to play this game, and would certainly buy it if I had the $50 to throw at it. Only those two buttons (red and green) need to be switched around, and I think this game would be perfectly playable.

    Can we fix this somehow?

    No, I know, and if it's the same fix, then that's why I made this topic. The red and green buttons for that hack need to be switched out with one another, with respect to their placement on the face buttons. As is, it's virtually impossible to play certain combinations of notes together because you'll get stuff where the X-button and B-button have to be played together, or the A and Y-button...

    I would say this is the perfect setup:

    L - Green (Left Index)

    Up/Right/Down - Red (Left Thumb)

    B/X/Y - Yellow (Right Thumb)

    R - Blue (Right Index)

    That control would handle the regular stance of holding the DS, you would just have to turn it

    Next would be holding the DS from one side like this


    R - Green (Thumb)

    Y - Red (Index)

    A - Yellow (Middle)

    B - Blue (Ring)


    L - Green (Ring)

    Up - Red (Middle)

    Left - Yellow (Index)

    Down - Blue (Thumb)

    the problem with cheats is also.
    they don't work for all flashcards...
    i'd really like the RXAB button config, but i'd either need a complete RXAB button-hack of the arm9.bin
    or an arm9.bin with only the grip check removed.

    this because my m3real doesn't load the grip check removal code in time.
