    Hey, guys. Is there an attachment that sticks to the d-pad of the DS? Hard as I might some games are near impossible for me to control because the d-pad is too small and awkward to move things, especially 3D games. I played GTA: Chinatown Wars on DS and not being able to move diagonally caused me to stop playing it. I played the PSP version and using the nub was so much more comfortable. It's the same issue with other games like Rayman. What I'm asking for is some gel-like thing that attaches to the d-pad that can be removed just as easily to close the lid. Has anybody come across anything like that?

    If you had something attached, how would the DS close? D:

    I just thought of something else. If the game in question has touch screen controls as well as D-Pad controls, you could try finding a DS Phat lanyard. It has something on the end that is generally supposed to be used as a thumb stylus. It was probably designed with games like Rayman DS in mind. ^-^
