Well, it's a commonly known problem that the DS Phat and Lite's L and R buttons don't really work after a year or so. This is the case for me and all of my DS-using friends. While I understand that L and R button combinations are the most rarely used, they are far overused when it comes to cheats on DS, making the majority of them (the useful ones which trigger otherwise inaccessible events) unusable on many, many DS's. I hope in the future (or what remains of it), those who make cheats will assign them to more durable buttons, like a combination of face buttons which are rarely used. Thanks for reading, and I'm not trying to come off as complaining. It's just that I can't use 3/4 of the cheats I would normally use thanks to irreparable L and R buttons, and it's kind of a common problem with the DS.
