    Hey guys, does anyone know if it's possible to reassign the L & R keys to work on the X & Y keys instead? The reason I ask is beacuse I hate, no, DESPISE playing street fighter using shoulder buttons, it's an evil torture!

    I don't think it would work. I think it has to do with GBA Bios and such. Maybe someone else could explain?

    nope, it is hardware limitation - and how much it is a hardware limit? Well there was a mod chip for PHAT DS that needed to be soldered so you got more buttons in GBA games (autofire/L and R/ something else/) and it was not cheap for that kind of mod (about 25$) and there is no lite version.

    I THINK you do not want more buttons as if you have phat ds soldering it for mere two buttons - o no.

    A better solution might be to play emulated versions of the classics rather than the GBA versions. Or y'know, if Capcom would get off their duff and release a Street Fighter for DS (without gimping it by including touch controls or something, pfft)

    emulated classics? like street fighter for snes and megadrive? yeh, tried them, a bit buggy and they are no way near as well balanced as newer street fighter games. tis ok, should hopefully have a PSP version of street fighter soon! woo!

    still, shame the DS doesn't have a respectable SF...
