I know I'm not the only one who sees the value of being able to do this, but is it possible? Has anything been released that will enable users to remap the L and R buttons on the Ds while in GBA mode? I hate using the L and R buttons, specifically when they are used to jump like in Super Mario World. It would be much more convenient to default the controls to the SNES layout. After all, the X and Y buttons aren't being used.

If this hasn't been done or is impossible to do at this time, how difficult of an undertaking would it be for someone to make those changes to the firmware? Or is that even a possibility?Why didn't Nintendo think of this?

The button layout is what I hated most (well, only thing I hated) when I got my ds. I wish I could change it also like the snes layout, just like i used in gba emus.

However, I doubt this is/will be possible.

    it can't be plugged into a USB reader (it's made from a regular SD card to USB adapter, but with the USB end modded to a Dreamcast serial plug)

    It was working fine before I installed the GDEMU, but now the Dreamcast doesn't recognize it when I boot up Dreamshell.

    Can't find any threads about this particular issue on GBAtemp or the wider intarwebz. Saw one video on YouTube that seemed relevant, but it was some dude with the same issue, no solutions offered in the comments. :/

    The teacher just wanted to know what kind of perverted debauchery Julie was watching on the school computer instead of studying.
