    I was choosing a game in the M3 flashcart menu on my DS. I used the D-pad and then chose with the A button and the thing that ran through my mind was, "you know, I wish I could select the icon via touch". It occured to me that I must be so lazy that I can't even take 3 seconds to select the game via a method that I've been doing with other games for several years. Just a thought. A random one.

    Better start a Gym membership, tubby.

    Though seriously, touch sensitive loaders are easy to code. If a cart doesn't have it, it means the developer's lazy.
    M3 and Supercard firmwares are well due an overhaul IMO.

    It takes more time to take the stylus and touch the icon. It would actually require more effort than just using the D-pad. Maybe I'm just finding excuses for my own lazyness [​IMG]

    But seriously, try playing Advance wars DS with the stylus. It's much slower than playing with the D-pad.

    Yeah, I agree. Better get a Gym membership [​IMG]


    In all seriousness, touch sensitive loaders are really easy to code.
